All right already, enough about Ted Haggard...

...but only after a couple of smarmy observations:

"I can't believe it," Cheri lamented. "I mean, I buy drugs and get massages, but the media doesn't camp out in my front yard."

Then this nightmarish tidbit: the elders of Haggard's (former) church have required him "to submit to the oversight of Dr. James Dobson, Pastor Jack Hayford, and Pastor Tommy Barnett."

Yowsa, the Scary Trinity itself. I'd wager that the poor man (rated 33 among The Top 50 Most Influential Christians In America) would fare better and emerge healthier submitting to his gay masseur.

Meanwhile, Haggard's publisher is undoubtedly drafting a proposal to the bestselling author hinting at a 2008 release. The delayed publishing date permits the required Decent Interval between an evangelical leader's Big Sin and his earning beaucoup bucks in royalties from a book detailing his fall from grace, his long road back, rebuilding his marriage and his ministry, etc., etc. If you're evangelical and famous, there's money to be made on both sides of sin for a season.
