"Bill O'Reilly is incensed that some unidentified someone [..] at Daily Kos once referred to the Pope as a 'primate'. Now if that droll commenter meant to cast aspersions on the Bishop of Rome by comparing him to our simian president, I can understand the offense. But it's worth pointing out that even such a disrespectful remark would be technically correct. Human beings, just like gibbons, lemurs, and George W. Bush, are technically 'primates'. And the Sovereign of the State of the Vatican City is a human being, is he not?

But it is also possible that the Daily Kos commenter was merely referring to the Pope by another one of his titles.
pri·mate -noun 1. Ecclesiastical. an archbishop or bishop ranking first among the bishops of a province or country.
Either way, the Pope is a primate, both going and coming. What the Pope is not, is a monkey. "


Exactly! After all, do you see me complaining because my tenant downstairs, B-girl Lynx, is a thespian? And a professional one, too! Anyway, I wanted to warn my son about her, but I caught him masticating in his room! I'm telling ya!!! What's a parent to do? (sigh) ...

KCA, c'est des blagues éculées [thespian (acteur dramatique) = lesbian et masticate = masturbate]mais qui s'intègrent fort bien dans l'ambiance d'ignorance et d'inculture qui règne en ce moment aux É.U. Les dirigeants dans tous les domaines sont choisis pour leur loyauté à Chu Bush et non pour leur compétences ou leur expertise. C'est un peu comme le Cambodge de Pol Pot: les intellectuels ont été éliminés et seuls règnent les imbéciles comme Bill O'Reilly ou Rush Limbaugh, qui ne connaissent pas des termes un peu savants comme "primate".
