Kim Davis, the embattled Kentucky county clerk, was released from jail yesterday to an adoring crowd of bigots, who cheered her on as she was joined by Mike Huckabee, who believes there’s some political capital to be gained here by aligning himself with a homophobic zealot (how’d that work out for you when you backed the Duggar fella after molestation charges, Mike? Maybe you wanna back go all out and back the Cosby train now?)
Don’t get me wrong: I believe there should be some religious accommodation for Davis, even if her religious beliefs are hateful. That’s exactly what she was given, when the judge in the case agreed that such an accommodation was met by letting other employees in the clerk’s office stamp same-sex marriage licenses in her stead. Unfortunately, Kim Davis — trying to extend that 15-minutes of troll fame into 20 — has vowed not to allow those employees to stamp same-sex marriage licenses for her, because her interpretation of the Bible is “Love thy neighbor, unless thy neighbor is gay, in which case fuck ‘em.”
The next time you look to the heavens, may a bird shit on your face, lady.
Anyway, when Kim Davis walked out to accept the applause of the intolerants in attendance, she was accompanied by the song Survivor’s “Eye of the Tiger.” You know who doesn’t like Kim Davis? Survivor, specifically guitarist and the writer of that song, Frankie Sullivan.
Well done, Frankie Sullivan. That Charmin line was nice, but you’re no Dropkick Murphys:
