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.

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
