If it quacks like a duck and walks like a duck, it just may be Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

I applaud the effort as well. However, Pastor Johnson (and all those like him) repeatedly claim to love the sinner, and are not judging but merely communicating god's truth in an effort to save the poor sinner whom they love. There is no 'winning' a theological argument, only boasting that one's own imaginary god is nicer than someone else's.
commented on SL Letters of the Day: Cuckolding—Good, Bad, Good, Great
What these letters affirm to me is the enormous difference between fantasy and attempting to move from that to real life. I don't think a lot of people get the difference. Just because someone fantasizes about an activity, and gets really turned on by that talk, doesn't mean he or she really wants to do it (and may know that actually doing it could be a downer). I think people could have a much richer shared fantasy life if they acknowledged that distinction.

Based on a recent This American Life story, I now think Dan is just trying to get a rise out of Ira Glass, who seems to have a psychopathic pit bull.
