Robert Jeffress on Obama-Warren Controversy: "Like Bizarro World."

Hey, hey, hey -- look who landed on CBS' The Early Show this morning to talk about President-elect Barack Obama's controversial (no, really?) decision to choose Rick Warren as the dude to deliver the opening prayer at the inauguration. Why, it's our old pal Robert Jeffress of First Baptist Church in downtown Dallas -- "longtime friend of Rick Warren," says Harry Smith, and wuh-oh. Just guess which side he's taking. Aw, no fair. --Robert Wilonsky
