Suspect I know what next year's campaign commercials will focus on when they're not fellating the coal industry.

Free access to tooth whitening treatments?

Actually, repealing Obamacare and such was part of this year's campaigns, though not nearly the levvel as previous years, seeing as how Kentuckians are apparently realizing that most of them wouldn't be able to go to the doctor without it.

Alabama Chief Justice Effectively Bans Same-Sex Marriage In The State

He literally cites Kim Davis.

The chief justice of Alabama’s Supreme Court issued an administrative order on Wednesday barring state judges from issuing same-sex marriage licenses, in contravention of the broadly accepted meaning of a June 2015 U.S. Supreme Court ruling.
Chief Justice Roy Moore forbade probate judges in the state from issuing marriage licenses that violate the state’s laws prohibiting same-sex marriage, “until further decision by the Alabama Supreme Court.”
Moore argued that the U.S. Supreme Court had only explicitly struck down same-sex marriage bans in Michigan, Kentucky, Ohio and Tennessee in its landmark decision Obergefell v. Hodges, though the ruling may be interpreted to apply to other states’ bans based on precedent.

WTF?!

What's worse is that this douchebag was removed in 2003 and then re-elected in 2012.

You can't fix stupid.

While this sucks for any gay Alabamans with wedding plans, for the rest of the country, this is just a "whatevs" moment. We know that this is going to get laughed out of the higher courts.

It is just the flailing of an old white man with more power than he deserves.

I wonder if couples whose plans are disrupted have the option for economic recourse/reimbursement for their losses.
