And, If You Are ALEC, She’s Totally Your HuckleberryApril 21, 2012
Apparently, a Holiday Inn in Heber Springs was hosting a meet-and-greeting last night, and all local political candidates were invited. Sen. Missy Irvin (R-Mountain View) RSVPed on behalf of herself and roughly 100 additional people that she invited. Because, hey, party!
Then she learned that the Holiday Inn had the unmitigated temerity to — gasp! — serve alcohol to attendees. Well, she wasn’t going to have any of THAT, because (paraphrasing) such antics “alienated the Christians.” So Sen. Irvin attempted to rally people not to attend the meet-and-greet. Take that, Holiday SIN!
Oh, except she didn’t actually get in touch with all of the myriad people she’d invited, so people showed up, expecting her to attend. That would have been embarrassing if Sen. Irvin had the capacity to be embarrassed by her own action. Which she obviously does not.
But, hey, embarrassing or not, maybe we should give Sen. Irvin credit for sticking to her faith-based guns (and for ignoring that 59% of the Bible’s references to wine/alcohol are positive), right? Well, we could do that.
Or we could point out that tonight Sen. Irvin held a private event at the Red Apple Inn in Heber Springs. Where . . . wait for it . . . alcohol was served!
If I ever film a re-make of Tombstone, I’m totally casting Missy Irvin as Doc Holliday. Because when she says “it appears my hypocrisy knows no bounds,” you’ll know she absolutely means it.
