God convinces Hastert to resign

Motherjones.com's Josh Harkinson gets the straight dope on Hastert. The straight dope from Hastert's soul to God through evangelical preacher K.A. Paul to Harkinson to me to you, that is.

Be that as it may, according to Harkinson, Paul claims "that he’d convinced the Speaker to resign."

The minister, who bears a striking resemblance to a tawnier and more earnest Ali G., told Harkinson that "God convinced him through me in prayer."

Perhaps.

But the shady and gleefully-partisan preacher may just be killing two birds with one stone here. On the one hand, he's riding the headlines for some publicity, while on the other, he's hoping to set the Speaker's resignation in motion through suggestion. For the good of the Party, of course. Er, for God. I meant God. (Motherjones.com)
