This morning on the Today show, Pastor Rick Warren and his bountiful, artificial chin-creating goatee -- which is, seriously, so impressive that it could very well be its own sentient being -- talked one-on-one with Ann Curry about the reservations many Barack Obama supporters have about his role in the upcoming inauguration.
In other words, he sat there with the kind of Fallwellian, self-satisfied smirk on his face that can only come from knowing that you've got a hotline to the Almighty and 20-million dollars in the bank.
For the most part, the interview revealed little we didn't already know about the way Warren sees the world (gay bad, God good), but watch the clip below and pay special attention to the money shot at the one minute mark.
I'm not sure what's funnier, Warren's comment or Ann Curry's reaction to it.
