'Now Our Domestic Surrender Monkeys Are In Shock'

Ralph Peters nails the whimpering lefties flipping out over Barack Obama selecting Rick Warren to give the invocation at his inaugural.
AMERICA'S hardcore leftists had convinced themselves they were finally getting "their" president. Boy, were they wrong.

Their latest cause for outrage: Barack Obama has picked the Rev. Rick Warren - a pastor who actually believes in the redemptive power of faith - to give the invocation at the inauguration.

That's what you get for judging a book by its cover - or believing campaign promises.

Months ago, I predicted that, if Obama were elected, the most-disappointed Americans would be the gang.

Now our domestic surrender monkeys are in shock.
And it's not just Warren, as Peters points out by examining a number of Obama's cabinet selections.

I'm mildly surprised by some of Obama's picks and unsurprised by others, more recently Arne Duncan at Education. Considering the illiteracy rate in Chicago's schools, that one smacks of rank cronyism.

But really, the childish reaction of the far left blogs and radical gay groups is just beyond hysterical with the Warren announcement. Clearly, pragmatism and moderation aren't their strong suit. It's either march in lockstep and cave to their demands or they turn on you.

There never will be a president who appoints a cabinet 100% to my or anybody's liking. You often have to accept some bad with the good and hope in the end your agenda is followed to some extent. Having a temper tantrum and flipping out before your guy is even inaugurated speaks volumes about these people. They really need to grow up.
