Somehow I doubt that Cardinal Egan knew this photo would be used for an endorsement piece and I'm pretty sure he doesn't speak in halting phrases of praise, either. Furthermore, churches and their leaders are not allowed to endorse candidates lest they forfeit their tax-exempt status. And he's not even in charge of our diocese - Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio is. Egan oversees the Archdiocese of New York.
I've never seen candidates use their communion and confirmation photos on campaign literature before. I'd also say there's a bit of overkill on the use of Jesus imagery. Noticed a misspelling of the word "staunch" as well. Ending with "God bless you" - now that's not really enough considering the rest of the palmcard. How about, "God bless you, my fellow brothers and sisters in Christ?"
The pressure is on! Now that Tony's got 'God the Son' on his side, there's only one endorsement Liz can get to top his... Can she pull it off?
