Catholic priest and pro-life activist Fr. Frank Pavone was accidentally made President Obama’s choice to fill the vacant Supreme Court seat after an intern inadvertently mixed up several White House files, sources are reporting.

A clearly embarrassed Obama named Pavone as a Supreme Court nominee Wednesday as they stood before a large gathering of attendees in the Rose Garden, both awkwardly glancing at one another for some time as Obama spoke of his nomination.

Addressing Republican leadership’s refusal in the Senate to consider a Supreme Court nominee, Obama said that he now actually agreed with GOP representatives, stating, “Now that I think of it, maybe we should wait to choose a nominee…you know, with all the stuff going on.”

After close to a 20-minute introduction by Obama, most of which time was spent trying to negotiate with Republicans that were in attendance that they ought to wait until a new president was sworn into office, Pavone received a round of applause and spoke to the crowd about how honored and shocked he was to be nominated.

“I really don’t know what to say,” a teary-eyed Pavone said. “People have always spoken about a secret little file in the White House with a list of pro-lifers that the government wanted to jail. I always thought I was on that list. Funny how God works. Anyhow, let’s get this process over with cause I’m getting hungry, and when I’m hungry, I tend to get angry, which makes me want to overturn things, if you know what I’m saying.”
