Dueling Scandals 

Okay, here's the scenario. You're running for the office of President of the United States of America and the devil appears before you. (No, I don't believe in the devil. This is simply a grand metaphor in the Faust tradition.) The devil tells you that he and God have decided that you must suffer a setback, but your opponent is going to suffer a similar one. To that end, they have devised two scandals, and you get to choose which one you prefer. The other will go to your opponent. Here are your choices:
• A member of your campaign's legal team will receive a citation for soliciting a prostitute.
• Your campaign's main religion advisor will be exposed as having been accused of sexual harrassment against a student he once taught.
Which do you choose?

Yeah, me too. And Bush thinks God is on his side?
