Barack Obama’s choice of pastor Rick Warren to deliver the invocation at the presidential inauguration next month is not sitting well with people:

Prominent liberal groups and gay rights proponents criticized President-elect Barack Obama Wednesday for choosing evangelical pastor Rick Warren to deliver the invocation at the presidential inauguration next month. President-elect Barack Obama has chosen pastor Rick Warren to deliver the invocation at his inauguration.

President-elect Barack Obama has chosen pastor Rick Warren to deliver the invocation at his inauguration.

Warren, one of the most influential religious leaders in the nation, has championed issues such as a reduction of global poverty, human rights abuses and the AIDS epidemic.

But the founder of the Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, California, has also adhered to socially conservative stances — including his opposition to gay marriage and abortion rights that puts him at odds with many in the Democratic Party, especially the party’s most liberal wing.

“[It's] shrewd politics, but if anyone is under any illusion that Obama is interested in advancing gay equality, they should probably sober up now,” Andrew Sullivan wrote on the Atlantic Web site Wednesday.

People for the American Way President Kathryn Kolbert told CNN she is “deeply disappointed” with the choice of Warren and said the powerful platform at the inauguration should instead have been given to someone who has “consistent mainstream American values.”

One thing is for sure, you can’t please everybody and that is especially true when it comes to politics. What do Bossipers think about Obama’s choice of extra-conservative pastor, Rick Warren to speak at his inauguration?

Blind Governor Seeing Red Over SNL Skit

New York Governor Paterson is not happy about how a SNL skit made fun of his blindness:

The usually self-deprecating Paterson called the spoof “a third-grade depiction.” That’s about how old Henry Williams was when he learned not to take teasing personally.

“I went to public school in New York City,” Williams explained, as he leaned on his white cane outside Vision Services for the Blind on W. 23rd St. “So I learned early not to let it bother me.” Continue »

‘Messy Jesse’ Jr. Denies He Was Involved in Trying to Purchase Obama Senate Seat

Posted by Bossip Staff

The FBI is investigating whether Jesse Jackson Jr. was involved in a scandal to buy and sell Obama’s senate seat:

Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. reportedly is the “Senate Candidate 5″ mentioned in a 76-page complaint filed by prosecutors against Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, who has been accused of a pay-to-play effort to sell the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by President-elect Barack Obama. ABC News on Wednesday quoted federal law enforcement sources saying of the son of the civil rights leader is the candidate identified by the FBI as willing to spend up to $1 million to secure the Senate seat.

Jackson, who has expressed interest in being appointed to the post, is holding a press conference at 4:15 p.m. ET to respond to the suggestion, and has denied any wrongdoing.

Messy Jesse Sr. (who said he wanted to personally cut off Obama’s nutsack ) and Al Sharpton have been personally taking stacks from corporations who fear racial lawsuits and we know shadyness doesn’t fall too far from the big shady tree. We will see how the evidence unfolds and hope lil’ Messy Jesse is innocent. SMH.
