Fun with hypocrisy

As Election Day draws near, the hypocrites are really coming out of the closet, so to speak. A couple gay-themed goodies from the family-values set to chew on over the weekend.
  • Republican Tennessee senatorial candidate Bob Corker apparently didn’t properly communicate his anti-gay stance to 19-year-old daughter Julia who appears in Facebook macking on a female friend and generally having a “Girls Gone Wild” good time. Corker – who is running a tight race against Harold Ford, Jr. – recently aired an ad featuring his daughters with the tag line, “I wanted you to meet my girls.” Well, we sure met Julia.
  • The Rev. Ted Haggard, president of the National Association of Evangelicals, stepped down from his post this week after allegations arose that he had an ongoing sexual relationship with a male prostitute, from whom he also purchased meth. During his tenure, Haggard fought against abortion and gay rights. He recently supported a ban on same-sex marriage on his home state of Colorado. Seems Haggard is of the “why buy the cow if you already pay for the milk” school of gay relationships.

I love the smell of hypocrisy in the morning. It smells like...victory.
