Benny Got A Brand New Car

Apparently, BMW didn't think favorably of Pope Benedict XVI tooling around in a 1999 Mercedes Benz. They handed him the keys to a new BMW X 5 SUV according to this MSNBC article.

The well-known "Popemobile" by comparison is a modified M-Class SUV built
in 1999 by BMW's arch rival Mercedes-Benz.

All indications are it will remain the "Popemobile."

Ol' BC wonders if there will be protests against the Pope having an SUV, given the fuel consumption tendency of those vehicles. The environmentalists could be gathering as I type.

Just a thought.

I wonder if they'll gather at St. Peter's Basilica and pretend to die of CO2 poisoning.

That would be soooo typipcal of the Left.

They probably have something in the works.
