Folks seem to be preparing for fake 'martyrdom' of Kim Davis, except Davis

What was that line uttered by actress Olivia DeHavilland in the motion picture "Hush, Hush Sweet Charlotte?"

You just can't keep hogs away from the trough.

Before you all even start, that was NOT a reference to anti-gay Kentucky clerk Kim Davis's appearance, but the anti-gay groups and personalities coming out of their respective caves and coffins to defend her illegal behavior.

Mike Huckabee has come out with a statement of support.  And so has presidential candidate Sen. Rand Paul. Then there is Franklin Graham and Roy Moore; two men always up for the game of "pick on the gays."

But the big booby prize goes to the online publication Breitbart:

No doubt these folks are anticipating a ruling during Davis's contempt of court hearing tomorrow morning with baited breath, statements already written and fundraising appeals ready to go with breathless hope and anticipation that U.S. District Judge David Bunning will bring down a severe ruling against Davis.

There is one problem though.  Davis is trying to delay again:

Kentucky county clerk is again asking a judge to delay his ruling ordering her to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. U.S. District Judge David Bunning's order has been upheld by a federal appeals court and the U.S. Supreme Court. But Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis continues to disobey it, saying she cannot do something that violates her religious beliefs. Bunning has scheduled a hearing for Thursday. He could hold Davis in contempt of court, which could lead to fines or jail time. But on Wednesday, Davis again asked Bunning to delay his order so she can appeal an earlier decision on a related issue. Davis had asked Bunning last month for an injunction against Gov. Steve Beshear for ordering her to issue the marriage licenses. Bunning refused to hear that motion. By doing that, Davis' attorneys argue that Bunning effectively denied their motion, which they have the right to appeal. Davis' attorneys asked Bunning to delay his order while they appeal to the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. 

It's as if she wants to get the judge so angry that he does cart her off to jail. Hmmmm
