More Warren Blowback

• The Blade Blog calls this Obama's first big mistake.

• HRC sends a letter to Obama.

• Steve knocks down some of the attempts to defend this selection politically, correctly concluding: "It's all risk, no reward."

• And there is almost no concern about Warren being virulently anti-choice, despite the fact that he compares abortion to the Holocaust.
"Of course I want to reduce the number of abortions," Warren told Beliefnet Editor-in-Chief Steven Waldman when asked if he was going to work with the Obama administration to achieve an abortion reduction agenda or if he thinks that the effort is a charade.

"But to me it is kind of a charade in that people say 'We believe abortions should be safe and rare,'" he added.

"Don't tell me it should be rare. That's like saying on the Holocaust, 'Well, maybe we could save 20 percent of the Jewish people in Poland and Germany and get them out and we should be satisfied with that,'" Warren said. "I'm not satisfied with that. I want the Holocaust ended."
I don't guess I need to point out that means Obama has effectively invited someone who equates him with a Nazi appeaser to participate in his inauguration—and, to give you some idea of the level of integrity Warren has, he accepted.

I also don't suppose I need to point out that, like most of the caterwauling nincompoops who blather on about how abortion needs to cease to exist, Warren does not make the prevention of sexual assault a centerpiece of his ministry.

Of course, a fuckneck who compares same-sex marriage to rape doesn't really seem to have given a whole lot of thought to either, now, does he?
