Thanks to the lazy media it's quite easy to become famous in 2015. You don't have to swim the channel, make a medical breakthrough or marry a major movie star. You just have to be a raging idiot like Kim Davis. This incredibly common Kentuckian has nothing to recommend her—not brains, not education, and certainly not beauty. Yet there she is every day on the news channels wallowing in the warm mud of media attention. Why? Because this evangelical bible-thumping bigot refuses to obey the law of the land. As a County Clerk of Rowan County, Kentucky, she refuses to issue marriage licenses to same sex couples because it's against her religion. This egotistical birdbrain is apparently convinced that her imaginary friend in the sky is so preoccupied with her insignificant life that if she lets two guys get married she'll be condemned to eternal hell fire. At least that's her story. Personally I think it's just an excuse for her raging homophobia and inborn stupidity. But, like I say, you don't have to have anything of value to offer these days to get more than your fifteen minutes of fame. Not when, in the immortal words of Sarah Palin, another complete cipher, the media is ready and willing to put "lipstick on a pig".
I am a retired copywriter. For 40 years I wrote for major agencies and developed some campaigns you would know. Like most writers, I love to give my opinion, and since I am so familiar with advertising this is the area I chose to comment on.
Actually I'm not that cranky. I am as fond
of as many things as I detest. But since most people only hear what one doesn't like, I might as well go with cranky.For my other blog idleideasfactory I am putting out there things I have written and ideas for books, screenplays, stage plays, and even products that I will not have time in life to follow through on. If
anyone can profit from them, be my guest.
