At Least Right Wing Psychos Are Consistent

News out of Colorado that a male hustler is revealing his "pay for play" relationship with Ted Haggard (an evangelical leader of one of those "mega churches"). Haggard's been a strong leader in the move to ban same-sex marriage in Colorado.

Haggard told the press that he has never had a homosexual relationship. The hustler claims to have voice mails & letters from Haggard.

It could be a con and snow job by the hustler. But why is it so easy to believe?

Because self-hating gay right wingers just keep on showing up.
Because hypocracy is the default position of so many on the right wing (who will fight for the rights of embryos but cut funding for children's programs) a group who loves their rhetoric but can't stand by the resulting realities.
Because right wingers getting caught in their lies and hypocracy just keeps happening month after month, year after year.

honesty isn't the only quality they're short on. how else could you send troops into harm's way with no plan, watch those troops get caught in the crossfire of someone else's civil war, mouth platitudes rather than formulate an exit strategy...and then spend the better part of two days excoriating john kerry for insulting, humiliating and demoralizing them in one ambiguous turn of phrase during a campaign stop?
is there such a thing as an irony supplement, maybe something that you can take by mouth?

Haggard is on screen in "Jesus Camp" decrying the sins of homosexuality. What a wanker.
