On Rick Warren ...

... A few words come to mind;  Poseur and phony are the ones I'll say here.

If you're not watching the "live coverage" and so-called "grilling" by Rick Warren, let me describe it for you.  It's like an episode of Oprah, with Rick Warren cast as a fat, white, goateed Oprah.  The live audience is perhaps more annoying though, with the constant canned applause.

Obama did well, but McCain just came on -- and I think it is clear who has the gravitas.  McCain looks good without the necktie.  He is humorous tonight.  And though he has been criticized for being uncomfortable talking about religion, I think talking about character is his wheelhouse.
