Jeepers Peepers, Where'd They Get ‘Oaf Creepers?’

Tierney Sneed at TPM:

Oath Keepers On Their Way To 'Protect' KY Clerk Kim Davis From US Marshals

Did they get night soil
on their watches
while slinging sh!t
from the chamber pot?
The Oath Keepers -- the armed, anti-government vigilante group known for popping up at the Ferguson protests and elsewhere -- has told Kim Davis' legal counsel that they would be willing to "protect" the anti-gay marriage Kentucky clerk from being detained by the U.S. Marshals Service. According to Right Wing Watch, Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes has said he is already on his way to Kentucky.

In a statement posted to the Oath Keepers' website, Rhodes claims that the federal judge who ordered Davis' detention after she refused to issue gay marriage licenses "grossly overstepped his bounds and violated Mrs Davis’ due process rights, and in particular her right to a jury trial."

TPM's David Kurtz says it all:
What the Kim Davis saga in Kentucky has really needed is the potential for a confrontation between the US Marshals and the Oath Keepers. What could possibly go wrong?

It's been an aggravating morning already. During a 6:00 A.M. CT thunderstorm, a lightning bolt that struck less than a block away took down the power, with everything that implies in Houston: no A/C, only natural light to read by, no computer, no internet, no TV moment-to-moment weather reports during morning rush hour, ... Amazingly, the cats did not hide (or at least didn't stay hidden), but instead claimed that the stress from the thunderclap required more or at least fancier food. Some things never change!

(A note about the date: it's really time for American civilians of every political stripe to stop acting as if they see a terrorist behind every Bush. Uh, I mean, every bush. I'm not saying forget September 11, but do at least stop obsessing over it. If you don't stop your obsession, the terrorists will have... oh, f^<k, just forget I said anything!)
