Pope Benedict abruptly resigned effective February 28th at 8:00 PM. It came as a surprise to every one around the world. Well, Jon Stewart took this head on with the prescient question; What does a pope do after he resigns? Well what does an 85 year old do when he retires. There is not much to do right?

     Samantha Bee came to the rescue about the reason for his resignation. It was because he questioned a long term relationship with someone he talks to a lot that he has never met.

     The funniest dialog follows between Jon and John Oliver. Jon Oliver I am hearing the name Mitt Romney floating around (for pope) Jon Stewart But he is a Mormon John Oliver He was a Mormon. He has evolved. I am also hearing Bachman, Gingrich, etc. Jon Stewart What do they know John Oliver What do they know about appealing to a floundering organization dominated by old white men clinging to an arcane moral code who must reluctantly embrace change to stay relevant? There is no crossover there at all Jon. (Of course he illustrated the GOP/Vatican similarities).

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
