because it amused me

The Wall Street Journal has a profile on the return of Ted Haggard, the mega-church minister laid low by crystal meth and gay hookers. You'll be happy to know that he's got himself back together and is now a regular guy, and he has a new church. He's also become very pithy. A couple of quick quotes for you

On accepting much more guilt than was absolutely necessary for his naughty adventures:

"I over-repented."

On changes experienced since becoming a regular guy:

"I cuss now."

On how people trust him more now that he's a regular guy:

"It's amazing. People tell me everything. That never happened when we were respectable."

As Tonto would say, "What do you mean we, kemosabe?"


  1. He over-repented because he had over-amped. It's that simple.

  2. Amazing that Haggard's wifey stuck wit' him during his time of...trials and tribulations. He may be a liar, a tweeker and a c*cks*ck*ing piece of sh*t, but he's a man of God, goldangit
