more mike jones

Damn. My heart is broken.

NYT: Are you politically active?
Mike Jones: I’m really not this left-wing liberal like some people have tried to paint me. I think I’m very moderate.

NYT:Even so, your disclosure came just days before the midterm election and gave the Democrats a boost by tarnishing the Christian right. Are you a Democrat?
Mike Jones: I’m a registered Democrat, but I’ve voted Republican. I voted for Bush in the last election.

If you want to read it the NYT article and it's requesting login, the signin eatabagofdicks and password eatabagofdicks from BugMeNot worked for me.

It's kind of annoying that he doesn't think he got enough attention or appreciation for what he did. Weren't people collecting money for him? I think he got plenty of attention and lots of people thanking him for exposing the hypocricy. And as a "model" I'm sure all the publicity will probably help him. He wasn't going to be able to keep working as a prostitute forever, anyway.

I really don't understand why everyone has had their tongues so far up Meth-Connection-Mikey's butt. Sorry, that was mean... I just don't understand all the salivation on his behalf. I think it's great that he exposed a hypocrite, but it's not as if Haggard were a national name before the outing. I'm not buying the idea that he played a "HUGE" part in getting the Democratic congress elected. I don't see these same people fawning all over Deborah Jean Palfrey, who was at least as honorable for naming the former "AIDS czar" as a client of her "massage service."

I'm reading the article just for the signin and password.

Millions of people appreciate that you spoke up, but still, as a prostitute, you’re hardly a shining exemplar of gay accomplishment. I prefer the term “male escort

Whenever I think the world can't get any stranger, I enter Lynette's place and start reading this stuff.

Thanks for the password, by the way. I get the NYTimes, but I'll use this one when I'm off my own computer.

All you need to do is watch the documentary "Jesus Camp" to understand what kind of a person Ted Haggard was (and how powerful he was) and how important Mike Jones' actions were. I don't care who he voted for. He saw a serious injustice being done, and he stood up and Did The Right Thing, at no small risk to himself and to his livelihood. If anything, I think the fact that he's a Bush-voting "moderate" makes what he did even more impactful.
