TUCKER DOESN'T HEART TED
Tucker Carlson was outraged tonight at Rev. Ted Haggard confessing to a TV reporter that he bought meth and a massage from a gay prostitute. He didn't care that Haggard insisted he threw the drugs away without using them. What infuriated Tucker and, he said, made him lose any sympathy whatever with the former president of the National Association of Evangelicals, was the fact that he gave the interview from his car with his wife beside him and three children in the seat behind.
Tucker saw this as Haggard "using" his wife and children to gain sympathy, and he excoriated him for it. To openly expose his family to that humiliation, he implied, was beyond the pale.
