Beating his own breast

According to Wolf Blitzer, speaking today on his CNN program "Late Edition," the Rev. Ted Haggard, just fired as pastor of the 14,000-member New Life Church he founded in Colorado Springs, has declared himself "a liar and deceiver" who has "committed sexual immorality."

Haggard's story has changed several times since self-described "escort" Mike Jones alleged a sex-for-money relationship with Haggard, a prominent anti-gay activist, and religious-right adviser to President George W. Bush. First he denied knowing Jones, then he said he got a massage from Jones and bought meth from him, but did not have sex with him. Today's less specific admissions would seem to indicate otherwise.
