Mike Huckabee, future failed presidential candidate and wingnut, on Kentucky Kounty Klerk—thanks to Beth at Nutwood Junction for that—Kim Davis’ religious hypocrisy:
“I spoke with Kim Davis this morning to offer my prayers and support. I let her know how proud I am of her for not abandoning her religious convictions and standing strong for religious liberty. She is showing more courage and humility than just about any federal office holder in Washington. Kim is asking the perfect question: ‘Under what law am I authorized to issue homosexual couples a marriage license?’ That simple question is giving many in Congress a civics lesson that they never got in grade school. The Supreme Court cannot and did not make a law. They only made a ruling on a law. Congress makes the laws. Because Congress has made no law allowing for same-sex marriage, Kim does not have the constitutional authority to issue a marriage license to homosexual couples.”
Um, Mike, you idiot? Kim’s job is to issue marriage licenses and nowhere in her job description—an elected position which means she should be serving everyone equally—does it say she can discriminate.
It’s simple, Mike, and because you don’t get it, means you will not now or ever be a president of this country.
Lindsey Graham, South Carolina Republican Senator and future failed presidential candidate, on Kim Davis:
“The rule of law is the rule of law. We are a rule of law nation. I appreciate her conviction, I support traditional marriage, but she’s accepted a job in which she has to apply the law to everyone.”
Bully for Miss Lindsey, who is saying this because maybe she’s faunally found Mister Right and he lives in Kentucky and wants to marry Miss Lindsey … or … he’s aware of how the country has changed and he’s just a pandering politician looking for votes.
Dan Savage, LGBT activist and advocate, on Kim Davis:
“This is a woman who’s been divorced three times and married four times, [who] gave birth to twins five months after divorcing her first husband, (and) they were fathered by her third husband but adopted by her second husband [and] She’s now onto her fourth husband. Jesus Christ himself in scripture condemned divorce, called it adultery and forbids it. Jesus Christ himself in scripture says not one word about same-sex marriage. She’s not being asked to perform a sacrament, she is tasked with ascertaining that the people in front of her, the couple in front of her, have a legal right to get married and to provide them with that license. She is not a minister. She actually thinks she works for God there in the county courthouse, when she actually works for Caesar — and someone needs to acquaint her with that fact.”
Mama Grizzly Bore™, on [t]Rump and, maybe, how she's like to be his Veep:
“Man he is just getting crucified out there just for telling the truth. He’s doing a good job of that and he’s shaking it up the way it should be, and he’s leading other candidates and having to talk about the issues that average Joe Six-Pack American wants to hear and wants to talk about. I’m certainly all about this ABC thing — Anybody But Clinton! We’ve had seven or eight years of a liberal policy that’s turning us into a socialist nation and that’s not what our founders have intended for us. If we were to elect someone who’s been part of the problem creating the socialism, really there is no hope. The skids are greased for her, I think the media is kind of playing this game, where they’re clobbering her a little today, you know they’re trying to hold her accountable, do that when she does though jump over this latest hump, which is thisscandal with the emails, the media can say, ‘Hey, see, we were fair.’”
I wonder what kind of dressing Mama Grizzly Bore™ suggest for this word salad because if she thinks Donald [t]Rump is dumb enough to choose her as his Veep, when she’s one of the reasons Gramps McCain lost in ’08, she has definitely crossed over to Crazy.
Chris Christie, New Jersey Republican governor and future failed presidential candidate, offering up his solution to undocumented immigrants:
“At any moment, FedEx can tell you where that package is. It’s on the truck. It’s at the station. It’s on the airplane. Yet we let people come to this country with visas, and the minute they come in, we lose track of them. We need to have a system that tracks you from the moment you come in.”
Yeah, he wants to put tracking numbers on people, or microchip them like dogs.
Isn’t this kinda similar to tattooed numbers on the arms of Jews in Nazi Germany?
