Focus on the Fundies: Set phasers to stun

I was loath to join in the howling condemnation of Obama's choice of celebrity pastor Rick Warren to say a prayer at the Inauguration, but it has been good for something: it's given more visibility to Warren, whose renown across America has been limited to other evangelical Christians. Take a look at this hit piece by Christopher Hitchens on Slate (courtesy 3 Quarks Daily). Hitchens himself is hard to stomach, so I like the spectacle of some snaggle-toothed leftist hawk tearing into the soft belly of the Midwestern megachurch ringmaster. Before Hitchens chokes on his own indignation, maybe he can tackle a few more people on my list. Could you take a look at this guy, Chris?
