Doesn't Jive Both Ways
“Hi Mike, this is Art,” one call began. “Hey, I was just calling to see if we could get any more. Either $100 or $200 supply.”
Now, something doesn't make sense here. Haggard claims he bought some but then decided never to use it. So if that's the case, why would he request MORE???
In defense of Haggard, one could also rebut the claims of the escort by asking why Haggard would call and ask for more over the phone when the escort claims that the only meth he used was in front of him during their liasons.
For me, the quantity of a $200 supply and the word "more" are damning to Haggard and suggest strongly that he is lying. If the backwoods hicks around here can afford meth, then a $200 supply must be a pretty good load of the stuff (I've absolutely no idea how much it costs, all I know is that people working at McDonalds can afford it). Haggard is almost assuredly lying, just based on what's available to the public to hear.
In defense of the escort's story, it could be that Haggard just meant that he wanted more meth to be available for their next encounter. According to the escort, the meth was not a standard part of his service, but something Haggard requested, so by asking if they could get some more Haggard was probably just requesting that a fat line was available for the next butt dart session.
Hmm, in the video of him in the car, it even looked like his wife didn't believe him. He's got a good poker face, but his face turned red, he closed his eyes and winced. I could read it. He's lying his ass off and he's goin' down!
