It was only a few months back that the right wingers were ranting on about how Obama was some sort of far-left covert terrorist-symp or something like that. Pals with ex-weatherpersons and ominously angry black preachers... And now we have a cabinet that's about as radical as the Osmonds, a notably stupid reactionary evangelist to do the invocation at the inaugural and god only knows what's next. Seriously, were people so out of the political loop they thought the Illinois Democratic Machine would hand us a flaming liberal? I guess so. For what it's worth, why the hell is there a preacher at the inaugural in the first place?
