Talk About Irony

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's daughter, Alexandra, just recently held a screening of her new documentary film about evangelical conservatives — "Friends of God." According to ABC News:
... [filmmaker Alexandra Pelosi] had extensive interviews with The Rev. Ted Haggard, the former president of the National Association of Evangelicals, who resigned after admitting to meeting with a male prostitute and buying illegal drugs. Pelosi finished the film before the Haggard scandal emerged.

At one point in the documentary, Haggard is seen standing outside his church talking to young men in his congregation, when he turns to Pelosi (and the camera) and tells her that surveys have found that evangelicals enjoy the best sex lives.

Haggard then turns to the young parishioners and asks them, "How many times a week do you have sex with your wife? How many times does she climax?"
Probably a lot more than Rev. Haggard's wife. The film will be aired on HBO on Thursday, Jan. 25.
