Kim Davis has a Party!

What is it? I bet you don’t know. Do you even remember who she is?

Kim Davis is the Kentucky clerk who was incarcerated for her refusal to issue marriage licenses to homosexual couples. Let me ask again. What Party does Kim Davis belong to?

Let me present some facts before you blurt out your answer. Kentucky is one of the southern States overpopulated by conservative Republicans. Kentucky is in the midst of the Bible belt where people cling to their guns and Bibles, both traits disdained by Obama and Democrats. Huckabee and Cruz went to Kentucky to protest her incarceration and try to get her released from jail, they are both Republicans. She is a Clerk situated in Rowan County which had a population of 23,333 in the 2010 census. Certainly seems to meet the small town stereotype. Rowan County is a moist county, being a dry county banning sales of liquor, except for one city, Morehead. Finally, Kim Davis is a Christian, you know, one of those controversial* religious types who seems to think that a marriage should be between a man and a woman as it has been for thousands of years. Do you have enough facts to make your decision?

If not, I would suggest that you review recent articles written about her. Doing a Google search for “Kim Davis Kentucky Clerk” found 16,500,000 hits in the last month. Adding “Republican” narrowed the hits to 235,000. Adding “Democrat” narrowed it to 127,000. Subtracting both Republican and Democrat from the total leaves at least 16,138,000 hits that did not mention either party. Are you ready now?

If you said that Kim Davis was a member of the Republican Party, you would be wrong; just as the New York Times was wrong when it stated that she was a Republican. It issued a correction calling it an “editing error.” She is a Democrat! Why is that not mentioned in the 16,138,000 articles? Because it does not fit the liberal narrative! Have fun; ask your friends what party she belongs to.
