Troy King Story Makes Huffington Post

The John Edwards Story Invites Us to Seek Out the Skeletons In Republican Closets

As for hypocrisy, check out Alabama's chief law enforcement officer, who says the state can put someone in jail for up to one year for selling a sex toy. "I took a little bit of pride in the state being first in something that is good, decent and right," said Attorney General Troy King in 2004, when Alabama became the first state to refuse recognition a same-sex marriage begun in Massachusetts. That year, he reaffirmed an editorial he wrote as a law student in the early 1990s in the University of Alabama student newspaper. "The existence of the GayLesbian Alliance on this campus is an affront to the state of Alabama, its citizenry, this university and its students," he wrote. So would an Attorney General who conducted a homosexual affair with a subordinate in betrayal of his wife and three children be an affront to the state of Alabama and its citizenry? King isn't talking.

So, Loretta; are you gonna be attending the convention --- with a helium filled pig? Oh, and a selection of lipsticks... :>

This by way of pointing you to a post o' mine called, aptly enough, "what would Loki do?"
