Thirstiest Congressman EVER Gets Piece of the Pope (PHOTO)

The Pope raised an interesting question in D.C. ... can tap water become holy just because he drinks out of it?  Congressman Bob Brady clearly has an answer, because he pilfered the Pontiff's glass.

After the Pope addressed a joint session of Congress -- quenching his thirst with a glass at the ready  -- Congressman Brady made a beeline for the podium and flat out stole the glass.

Brady gingerly took the glass out of House Chambers and he and his wife took swigs soon thereafter.  He's unapologetic, and plans to put the glassware in his curio cabinet at his home.

Hope the Pope takes the keys to the Fiat when he jumps into the crowds.
