For the record

I don't care that Rick Warren got asked to pray at Obama's inauguration. He's at least better than Jeremiah Wright, though if Obama had picked His Indignancy, I'd've shrugged that off, too. For that matter, if Obama wants Balinese fire dancers or Native American shamans or my cousin the Hare Krishna follower to do their thing at the ceremony, it's no skin off my nose.

It just doesn't matter a wet slap who gets asked to pray. Who gets asked to make policy, now that's something to get exercised about.
