Charlie Pierce had a typically sharp take on the whole thing:

Dear Judge Bunning: Thanks for nothing.

Let me explain to you what happens now. The entire political communications apparatus of the wingnut welfare system goes to DefCon 1. (Judge Bunning's e-mail is going to get very entertainingly unchristian, I suspect.) Kim Davis now becomes the latest ornament on the Hang Yourself Cross of Bible-banging victimhood. There will be marches and vigils. There will be a six-figure book deal; my money's on John Fund as Davis's ghost. There may even be one of those movies produced by gullibility trawlers like the one helmed by Rick Santorum. Anybody want to bet me that she doesn't speak at next year's Republican National Convention? You have made a star, Judge Bunning, and the rest of us have to live with her.

Bertold, you're welcome as to the link. I would add that Daily Stormer has endorsed Trump for President. Just sayin'.

As to a Davis/Palin colonic spa. I live at the confluence of the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers. There ain't enough water to flush that away!

Pat, I hadn't previously encountered the lovely and insightful Website you linked. Thanks for making my day!

Kim, once she's established as a media sensation (and she has every bit as much charisma as Mary Lou Retton) could start a side business with Sarah Palin. They could establish a high end (so to speak) colonic spa in D.C. for constipated Republicans.)

Bertold, you make a great point. A franchise on Fox News? TBN? Daily Stormer? Breitbart? NewsMax (When news breaks we fix it, and ohhhhhh, do we fix it!). I see shekels in her future from the bigoted Trump supporters.

KY update - NPR just noted that the County Clerk proposed a compromise by which Kim would be excused from issuing licenses herself if she would promise not to interfere with her clerks. She refused. Most likely at this point she's seeing dollar signs beckoning as much as the gates of heaven.

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on September 3, 2015 at 5:20pm

This should be such a simple and straightforward case, and it could be easily settled, no fuss, no bother. Kim is asking for a special right, not to perform part of her job responsibilities. So, all she needs to do is show incontrovertible proof of her claim, that signing her name to a marriage license for a same-sex couple will directly result in her spending an eternity in hell. If this is true, I'm for her, her request is reasonable. Without that proof? Why are we even wasting money on legal proceedings?

LOL, Bertold.That sounds like a good idea.

Good point about bible injunctions and selective behavior, Daniel.
