Dizzy’s Ten Post Round-Up

Despite my self-imposed news blackout, I was still following the blogs in my Google Reader. I also have one that my readers can follow, on my own website’s sidebar. If you had been watching it throughout the evening, you would have noted that there was a lot of primary reports highlighted from most of my favorite bloggers. Which is why I am glad I had the tv set to soft, soulful, music because I’m sure that the media noise machine was wailing.

I went to go see my bestest friend, on her birthday. She had to work, so I went to hang out with her on her job site for a couple of hours and came home to read more primary news until my eyes couldn’t take it anymore.

Now that Superduperfragilistic Tuesday is over, most of America is waking up to find out that John McCain cleans up very nicely, delegates-wise and that the Democrats still have time to decide whether it’s gonna be Hillary or Obama who will get the nod.

The most interesting bit of news I came across before my head hit the pillow, last night, was about America’s most illustrious preacher: Jesus Camp’s very own and former star pastor for New Life Church, Ted Haggard. Apparently, he’s been kicked out of his de-gayification program! Of course, that’s really bad news for Ted and his friends who hoped that they could “pray away the gay”, but I have a feeling that there is going to be quite a bit of schadenfreude kicked around today among my blogging compatriots (you know who you are!).

Now, if I could only find a song that reflected exactly how I’m feeling right about now…: “Ted Haggard Is Completely Heterosexual” by Roy Zimmerman

I know some of you may find this hard to believe, but there actually was other news, yesterday, so let’s review in today’s Ten Post Round-Up:

1: Speaking of…um…religious leaders…Ted Haggard’s former friend, James Dobson, definitely does not “heart” the Republican presidential front runner…

I’m sure I don’t need to mention that this is the same president who was taking spiritual and political advice from a preacher who was so far in the closet, even R. Kelly couldn’t find him.

The snark machine is warmed up and ready to go and I haven’t even finished my first morning cuppa.

Peace.

(say it with me: schadenfreude…)
