The fast track to fame.

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".

  1. Surely she's angling for a book and movie deal. If that comes to pass, we dearly hope an openly gay actress plays her. We nominate Rosie O'Donnell.
