    And I couldn't be happier. Her former ties to the Democratic Party (no doubt a legacy of the segregationist Dixiecrat era in the South, before they realigned themselves with their new home in the Republican Party) was an embarrassment to most gays. Now she can associate herself with the Party that officially holds the same disgraceful civil rights values (or really the lack thereof) that she does. Good riddance, and let the Right Wing bigots embrace her.

    They're welcome to her, and she'll fit right in. Maybe a senate run?

    Or at least the Kentucky State Legislature, maybe even the US House of Representatives. She's got her elected office of County Clerk locked up for life now, like her mother did before her. But I'm sure she and her fans see a greater future for her, spreading her brand of religious bigotry throughout the land, as every good evangelical Christian is expected to do. icon_rolleyes.gif

    She claims the Democratic Party left her.
    Yes dear, about fifty years ago actually. I know, back then being gay was still still classified as a mental disorder but it's 2015 now.

    Well, I can sorta empathize with her. While the segregationist Democratic (Dixiecrat) Party in Kentucky was becoming the current Republican Party, the Republicans to whom my parents & I belonged became the lunatic Fascist Party, with a strong Fundamentalist Wing.

    Not to mention that maybe as I grew in age & experience, I may have moved more away from inherited habit and grown in wisdom & compassion. Well, maybe that's a little too self-complimentary. Let's just say I learned better, and leave it at that.

    Kim's 2015 announcement that she is a Republican is every bit as useful as William Griffin's, Grand Dragon of Florida's KKK, announcement that he was endorsing Richard Nixon for President in 1960.

    Hopefully he lost Nixon some votes, allowing Kennedy to win. Where was Griffin in 1968? We sure could have used him then. Instead we got Republican Nixon in the White House, along with "4 More Years!" in 1972. And a bloody expansion of the Vietnam War before we finally threw in the towel, and endured the worst Presidential scandal in US history.

    Culminating in the only Presidential resignation we've ever had. Leaving us with such haunting legacies as "Watergate" and all the "-gates" that have followed.

    Thank you, Republican Party, for these great gifts. I doubt Kim Davis can rise (or stoop) to that level, but I'm confident you'll embrace her with enthusiasm, and exploit... opps, sorry, make that promote... her to her full potential.

    Kim's mother (the smart one) built a legacy of public employment and hopped to pass it on to her daughter? Guess it didnt work as planned.
