Rick Warren

(Welcome NYT readers! This was kind of an immediate snap judgment, for a more considered view of the Warren invocation, go here.)

First of all, how dare he even mention Martin Luther King. Second, those portions which were not direct quotes from scripture were a mess. He got little more than polite applause and the complete mess he made of the invocation showed that what applause he got wasn't earned. And his presence kind of snapped me out of the spectacle of the whole thing, realized that we still have differences, we still have a lot to fight for, and we still have a long way to go.
