Although I've never met the guy, I was never a huge fan of his nomination because I don't particularly like him. It's probably because I'm from New Orleans and he believes my city deserved the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina because of our "spiritual pollution." Silly, silly man. If God had wanted to punish us for our sins, he would have swamped the source - the tourists on Bourbon Street, not my uncle in suburbia.
I am not a fan of his initial nomination, so I am perfectly ok with his request to withdraw. I'm probably just still bitter.
