Jan. 19th, 2009 @ 01:18 pm Did Obama Team Play us On Bishop Robinson?
During the inauguration kick off party at the Lincoln Memorial, openly gay Bishop Gene Robinson of the Diocese of NH gave the opening prayer.

The problem is it was not televised by HBO or NPR and there were 'technical difficulties' making it nearly impossible for the crowd of 500,000 to hear a word.

Demand to know why Bishop Robinson was part of the "pre-show" and therefore not taped.

The Presidential Inauguration Committee took the blame for scheduling the event as part of the pre-show which HBO was not scheduling to show. Rumor has it the invocation will be re-broadcast on the Mall with the rest of the program for the assembled masses to see tomorrow.
