Dennis "The Diplomat" Rodman has arrived at the Vatican just in time for the eventual election of the successor to Pope Benedict XVI.

Rodman told WUSA-TV that he is in Vatican City because he is shooting a commercial where he will ride around in a "popemobile."  He also told reporters the next pope will be black.

Rodman, who just returned from his trip to North Korea, is hoping to have a sit down meeting with the new Pope, therefore [probably] becoming the only human in history to meet with the leader of North Korea and the Pope in the same month. Rodman is at the Vatican to promote a black papal candidate.

He arrived in full Loudmouth Golf regalia, which likely raised some eyebrows around Rome.
