Conservative Hypocrites

Conservatives are having a field day with this one:

Federal agents arrested Charles Rust-Tierney, the former president of the Virginia chapter of the ACLU, Friday in Arlington for allegedly possessing child pornography.

According to a criminal complaint obtained by ABC News, Rust-Tierney allegedly used his e-mail address and credit card to subscribe to and access a child pornography website.

Check out StoptheACLU’s gleeful commentary.  Since Tierney is evil, the implication is that the ACLU is evil.

Yet, when a top evangelical Christian leader was exposed as having paid for drugs and a male prostitute the same conclusion was taboo.  I’m speaking, of course of Ted Haggard, once known as the most influential conservative evangelical Christian.

Sorry guys, but fair is fair… you can’t have it both ways.

What was she thinking?

While onlookers gawked, Britney Spears checked into a rehab center, shaved her head and got a new tattoo on her wrist. Mental health experts said the behavior was erratic and required attention, while fans of the pop star took to the internet to express their support for her. No, this is not a marketing ploy but a cry for help.
