Team Obama: "Our Bad"
Barack Obama's inaugural committee is taking the blame for a scheduling miscue that left gay Episcopal Bishop Gene Robinson's prayer out of HBO's live broadcast of yesterday's inaugural megaconcert.
They did the right thing.
Rachel Maddow is reporting that HBO will add +Gene's prayer to all of its Encore Performances, the first being tomorrow, Tuesday, Inauguration Day, at 1 PM and again at 9:30 PM, as well as its webcasts www.hbo.com
A PIC source reports that some clips from the Lincoln Memorial event, including Bishop [Gene] Robinson's prayer, will be played on the Mall prior to the swearing in ceremony.
And, I understand that +Gene will be on the Daily Show tomorrow.
So, can I just say? WOO HOO!!!!
It is said that there is a rule in the universe that whenever anyone makes a decision to no longer be abused or oppressed or have her/his truth suppressed, something in the cosmos shifts and will never again be the same.
Say it with me, children: Yes we can!
Here's his interview earlier today on MSNBC with Andrea Mitchell.
