louie-giglio.jpgObama's second term will apparently start with reruns: he's elected to have an anti-gay preacher deliver the benediction at the inauguration.

Hearing Dems talk about how this isn't all that big of a deal will be just as much fun as hearing them talk about how authorizing murder (via drone) is just a little whoopsie that even awesome, educated people sometimes accidentally do. The best thing about being a conservative Democrat is that liberal Democrats are always willing to put party above ideology and excuse your crimes.

(And, as always, I'm open to the possibility that Mr. Giglio has changed his views since the 90's. Perhaps he could make his retraction and apology as easily google-able as his original incendiary sermon is.)

UPDATE: Mr. Giglio has withdrawn from the program.
