The AP obtains the e-mails of Kentucky County Clerk Kim Davis. And yes they are just as batshit crazy as you imagine.

Courtesy of TPM:  

Davis' emails, obtained by the Associated Press under the Kentucky open records law, offer some insight into her state of mind in the weeks leading up to her five-day stint in jail for defying a federal court order to issue the licenses. 

"The battle has just begun," Davis wrote in the email to a supporter in July, hours after four couples filed a federal lawsuit against her. It was the start of a monthslong legal fight against licensing same-sex marriages. 

"It has truly been a firestorm here and the days are pretty much a blur, but I am confident that God is in control of all of this!!" she wrote to the supporter on July 2, the day the American Civil Liberties Union filed a lawsuit against her on behalf of the couples. "I desire your prayers, I will need strength that only God can supply and I need a backbone like a saw log!!"

"Backbone like a saw log?"  Is that a Kentucky saying, or a crazy person saying?

But wait, there's more:  

Protesters crowded the courthouse lawn and news media from across the country descended on rural Rowan County. She complained to a supporter that the demonstrators stood outside her office window chanting into bullhorns. 

"Will your lawyers and several decent people be around you to protect you from the wicked threatening homosexual mob and their supporters?" a man from Somerset named Willie Ramsey wrote to ask. 

"They are going to try and make a whipping post out of me!!" she wrote in her response. "I know it, but God is still alive and on the throne!!! He IS in control and knows exactly where I am!!" 

"September 1 will be the day to prepare for, if the Lord doesn't return before then," Davis wrote him. 

("If the Lord doesn't return before then?" So she literally expects the end times to occur any day now.)

"I have weighed the cost, and will stay the course." Ramsey said he'd be willing to block the courthouse door if the law came for her that day. 

"I'm sure it will be a mad house!!" she told him, adding that "God will still be in control!!"

Whoa Nelly, that is some deeply psychotic babbling right there.

This woman is clearly suffering from a messiah complex and all of the media attention that she received only exacerbated her break with reality.

Here is what Slate had to say about the e-mails:

These are not the words of a rational public servant attempting to do her taxpayer-funded job to the best of her abilities. Nor are they the words of a conflicted religious person attempting to obtain an accommodation to balance her personal faith and public duties. These are the words of a religious fanatic who views herself as the protagonist in an epic, possibly biblical battle between good and evil—a millenialist zealot who hopes the rapture, rather than mere earthly courts, will intervene to save her.

Exactly! This is a woman suffering from a rather severe mental illness.

Which means that either Mike Huckabee and Ted Cruz, who both showed up in Kentucky to support her, do not realize that, or suffer from the same or similar psychological issues.

Now don't get me wrong, I think that most people can have faith without necessarily losing the ability to separate reality from magical thinking, but in the case of this individual that is simply not true.

In my opinion a person like this should NEVER hold any kind of important public office, and any person who supports a person like this, should be kept as far away from the White House as humanly possible.

Simply put, this kind of thinking is dangerous.

    I suspect that her MIL made her feel so guilty about her multiple marriages that when she finally went to church, she was ripe for forgiveness and giving herself to the Lord. Hallelujah! She reminds me of those people in movies about the Depression and before, when the itinerant preachers would come to town and hold 'revival meetings.' This would be the woman who had been blind and could suddenly see! Or in the rickety wheelchair, who accepts Jesus and WALKS! Amazing! A miracle! Pass the offering basket quick! Does she also have a GoFundMe for expenses? She must not be svelte enough or blond enough for a Fox gig (or maybe she's just too dumb even for them?)

    1. I think it was George Carlin first pointed out that it seems that the born-again, made-cleansed by the blood of Christ-types, are primary those who have fucked up so badly that few, if any, mortals still will bother talking to them and getting religion is the only solace left.

      Nobody turns themselves over to Jesus on prom night.

      She did start a GoFundMe page and they kicked the bigot off.

    5. Why, yes. Yes she does.

      It's to cover all those legal costs and court fees for fighting the blasphemers and spreading the word of God Lord be praised Jeebus!

    3. Excuse me, 5:35, but how exactly does a lesbian write? Is there some kind of Expressing Your Lesbian Self college credit class I don't know about? For your information you don't have to be LGBT to criticize and disdain what that hateful woman says and does.

      And you 5:35 are showing your level of intelligence ,you are also pretending to know some knowledge of the gay community, therefore we will assume that you are gay and haven't come to terms with it.

      If you were trying for the ultimate insult you missed the mark.If you however were trying to show your ignorance by supposing that intelligent people give a damn about what anyone is opposed to how they live their lives then you accomplished your goal.

    One has to ask: Is this proper use of her government e-mail account?

    While I realize she may not be able to stop receipt of unsolicited e-mails, she can correctly decide that responding to them using her government e-mail account is improper and most likely against the rules.

    1. Anonymous5:56 PM

      That was the same exact thought I had--why is this person using her official government e-mail account for her religious views?

    O/T but another bunch of religious nutcases voice their thoughts on Quitter Queen has been Esther, EVEN THEY are beginning to see what most sane rational people knew 8 years ago.

    that Paylin is a loser, a quitter, an ignoramus, a vainglorious twit, a shallow and egocentric nut, and a hopeless idiot:

    To wit:

    I have to say her absence and silence is leading me to the same conclusion. And I have to say that I will probably follow her lead in this respect. Sit down and shut up. That's what she's doing. And in doing so her influence on anybody in any respect whatsoever is evaporating.

    It's frustrating to see Sarah Palin not active in politics, at least not at this point. When we look at this GOP field, we hope for someone to measure up to something close to her standards, but I can come to only one conclusion:

    There is no substitute for Sarah Palin.


    golly gee, even the C4pee old fat white Christians are finally realizing that they have wasted untold thousands of dollars in couch change hoping that $arah is anything but a grifter..

    The icing on the cake, and a bunch of cherries on top will be a devastating expose, an indictment, or a tell all book by someone who finally exposes the Tundra Twit for the lying criminal she really is.


    1. Anonymous7:51 PM

      I don't expect a tell all book because she has paid off her family and she has become irrelevant enough that for once her voice has been almost silenced.

      There are no more articles about her or Bristol that are positive. Sarah has been silent. Look at all the the things that have been happening and she can't pay her ghostwriters and staff anymore like she used to all she has is facebook and she even ranted about that! for some reason she has been using Bristol a lot lately and going on and on about anti abortion.It's all about damage control and Barstool has really done it this time. Dakota is not the Father of Barstool's latest mistake so they have to put out the brave "Even though my daughter is stupid slut" at least she did not have an abortion! We are Christians after all! So we can screw all we want and not let the Father of our kids in on the kids lives, Why? because we are ass holes who have money and are more concerned with ourselves than anything else.Including our kids.

OnHer Back almost made it to the Kentucky bank, but Medal of Honor figured it out just in time. So now, OnHer Back is parading her swollen belly around Wasilla solo, until she can hook some dumber dude for the fall guy.

      Although we don't know in what position Bristol became pregnant, the fact remains that she preached abstinence at one time, made a lot of money at it and than in some kind of position got pregnant again! Dissapointing Mommy Dearest and all her C4P fans, however Barstool has given Mommy an excuse for not running for President once again! Don't worry about Bristol, worry about her Fatherless kid and the damage that family will inflict on it.

    Gryph, when you label someone as "psychotic" or
    "suffering from a severe mental illness" or "having psyschological issues" because of their association with another person whose behavior/belief system differs from yours, I would appreciate your inclusion of the DSMV diagnostic codes you relied on in reaching your conclusion. See, I have a few of those diagnoses myself, and your expertise would help me verify the diagnostic accuracy of my current psychiatrist without having to pay big bucks to a new one. Thanks.

  16. Okay. That last picture of Davis with Cruz is just creepy. Not them. Jim Bob Jethro Cleatus in the overalls. What is it with her husband? Does he have to keep his hand on her to claim her as his property to warn Cruz to watch it? Or is it a warning to Davis herself to remember who owns her an is in dominion over her. Right after God that is.

    doG they are all so...creepy.

    Wikipedia: "The term sawlog refers to that part of a tree stem that will be processed at a sawmill. This is in contrast to those other parts of the stem that are designated pulpwood. The differences are that sawlogs will be greater in diameter, straighter and have a lower knot frequency."

    Nobody voted God to "be in control." In fact, that's illegal.

    Yes, extremely dangerous. The next step in this kind of crazy is to believe that God not only condones everything you think, he actually planted it there. The next step is to believe that He not only controls every aspect of your life, but put you in whatever position you find yourself purposely to do "His Will", which he's left up for you to interpret, but because of point #1, it's basically anything you decide it is.

    And thus, ANYTHING can then be rationalized, laws and sanity be damned.

  21. This is the America we can expect under The Tea Party Reich.
    All the sensible people who feel the insanity must stop at some point, think again. Like the communists everyone feared had burrowed their way into every nook and cranny of society,
