Huckabee demagoguery closes schools in Kentucky

Mike Huckabee, hoping to breathe life into his moribund presidential campaign by holding a rally in Kentucky today for jailed Kentucky clerk Kim Davis, has caused a school holiday for 1,000 school kids. Five schools in Ashland, Ky., will be closed for fear of traffic congestion for Huckabee's jailhouse rally.

Huckabee has won quite a bit of air time for his fractured legal and historical assertions in defense of Davis' decision to refuse to comply with a conservative Republican judge's order that she uphold her oath of office (to uphold the Constitution) and do her statutory duty of issuing marriage licenses. She refused even to allow her deputies to issue licenses, thus imposing her religious beliefs on them.
