"Our investigation and Pastor Haggard's public statements have proven without a doubt that he has committed sexually immoral conduct," the New Life Church's Overseer Board said in a statement.
Well, looks like he's fried. For the board to come out and not even try to downplay it one bit means they know he did it. They know it was more than a mere massage. On top of that, Haggard is lying and they know that too. Soon we will see the rehearsed confessional, replete with the tears of forced emotion, and a broken voiced pleading for forgiveness from Christ on high. Should be great theater. And the media will no doubt play the succession of those pastors whose footsteps he has traced- Swaggart and Bakker being the most well known.
God, with all these scandals the Republicans may lose their asses on Tuesday. Lets hope. Let the Iraq investigations begin. I can't wait for the day when the talk radio shitheads are made fun of the way they deserve, and the reptile-brained emotocons are marginalized and squeezed between the pages of history like a wilted flower. Our votes should be an apology to the world on behalf of Americans beginning to sober up after a riotous night of insane post-9/11 fear based hysteria.
As Bill Maher intoned (in different words than mine)- Bushes campaign to protect us from terrorism by incessently defending the virtues of a failed military campaign despite all evidence to the contrary is like saying that he keeps smearing our faces with shit while trying to sell us fly repellent. The republicans are the party of fly repellent.
