    Angry Kentucky governor declares emergency to bash gays

    The sitting Governor of Kentucky is considering calling the state legislature into a special session to pass a law preventing the University of Kentucky and the University of Louisville from providing domestic partner benefits for unmarried and same-sex partners of their employees. The Governor is in a difficult primary (he was indicted last year) and is apparently holding this out as a reward for the mouth-breathing, knuckle-dragging base if they support him. It's ironic that he used the Terri Schiavo "special session" excuse for addressing yet another religious right "emergency." (How about a special session to address the emergency that a guy under indictment is leading the state under the guise of a moral crusade?)

    The University of Kentuckys Board of Trustees voted yesterday to provide DPBs. U of L did so a few months back. A conservative republican candidate for Attorney General called the move patently unconstitutional, since Kentucky voted on a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage in 2004.

    Ironically, that AG candidate looks an awful lot like a porn star from the 1970s (hey, he made it personal first). His name is Stan Lee.

    Kentuckys two largest newspapers, the Louisville Courier-Journal and the Lexington Herald-Leader both wrote editorials in support of DPBs.

    I do find it amazing that the religious right claimed that these anti-gay state constitutional amendments (and the federal one) would have no impact on anything else other than gay marriage. Now we're finding out otherwise, from the horses' own mouths. Now they're telling us that when the states banned gay marriage they also banned providing health insurance, inheritance, hospital visitation and more to gay couples. Funny, but I don't recall hearing any of that when the religious right was pushing these things. Of course, we also know from Ohio that these state amendments have also outlawed domestic violence laws. I'm not kidding. Women who have been abused by their boyfriends, fiancees, etc., can now no longer seek the protection of domestic violence laws because in Ohio you can't be given rights unless you're married. Now we're talking targeting straight women who are victims of violence.

    This is who the Republican party has sided with. And this is what the anti-gay marriage crew is all about. They're about taking away every single right gay people, and even straight people, have in America today. All as a part of their personal Baptist jihad against every other Christian, every other faith, and every other American.

    Hmm what was that about relaxing and not getting so uptight when religious fuckbrains keep coming after us?

    Classic...the asshole is indicted so instead of taking his lumps like a man, he decides to pull some fringe issue out of his ass in hopes of distracting the voters. Please tell me this won't work.

    It's Kentucky... chances are it will distract the drooling masses quite handily.

    As soon as this came over the AP Wire, Ed Schultz started talking about it. Ugh. What a tool.

    Noooooooooooo! He's one of the good guys Grimm. Sorry I didn't explain it better. (and you haven't been paying attention on the other political threads)

    The Ed Schultz Show

    He's often asked on talking head shows on MSNBC and has been on panels on CNN because he's not hotheaded and trys to be the voice of reason... of course they don't give him enough airtime.

    retards.
    if only they spent 1/10 of the time they spent worrying about gays on education...
    never mind, since they'd probably use that time to ban evolution and sex ed.

    They eat 800,000 squirrels a year in Kentucky. .that just about sums it up...only slightly less backwards than West Virginia. Going into Eastern Kentucky is like going 75 years back in time.

    When ever we want to refer to a place as backwards here we just 'tucky' it...as in Grove City(suburb) = Grovetucky...
    Don't slap me, cause I'm not in the mood!
