It's Not an Election, It's an Intervention
All are sick men, while the former was in denial and the others still are.Haggard, the fallen evangelical standardbearer, at first denied an allegation that he had done drugs and had sex with a male prostitute. But as quick as you can say "Mark Foley," he has admitted to both.
Compare these willful indiscretions with the actions of the president, vice president and defense secretary, who despite the analyses of their own commanders and the vivid newscast images of chaos, deny that the mission in Iraq has derailed.
In Taggard's case, his wife, family and church were victimized by his denial.
In the case of Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld, two entire countries continues to be victimized.
It really is very, very sad.
