Ann Barnett Annoys Local Bakersfield Media

Timothy Kincaid

June 12th, 2008


Anti-gay Kern County Clerk Ann K. Barnett is making no friends in Bakersfield. She’s royally annoyed the local Channel 29 Eyewitness News by denying them the ability to videotape where they had in the past and then calling the police on them. And she’s infuriating the local County Counsel by stubbornly refusing to follow his legal advice and to cooperate with media.

She’s refering everyone to the Alliance Defense Fund.

There’s no question that Barnett is anti-gay. But she’s also just not very bright. Every time she opens her mouth the local news shows that she’s lying. Check out the articles and the two video Eyewitness News reports.

Can she be impeached? Is it even worth the effort?

I have a certain “Ann” from California who’s decided to leave a comment on my blog if you haven’t been there…

“Not very bright” and “anti-gay” – Right down the ADF’s alley! The perfect client!

Ha! Nice, Evan!

How dare you not take advantage of “so many ohter options for acknowledging your companion of life” that require more of your time and money. Just means you’re intolerant of her special status.

Amazing to me how many people actually think that their personal belief/opinion overrides how we live our lives.

Their Opinion > Our Lives = Peace and Harmony. Amazing.

I really liked the “so many other options” remark, too.

Let’s see…legal tomfoolery…civil unions…

What else?

MAYBE you could make matching teddy bears.


MAYBE you could take one of those adorable superhero pictures like they have at state fairs where you stick your heads through the hole…


Yeah, Barnett, just give me the damn marriage license.

Yeah, Barnett, just give me the damn marriage license.

Exactly. Just STFU already, hand me the marriage license–you don’t have to smile, and then go home at the end of the day with ALL the hate in your heart you muster and stew in it. Steeeeewwwww. Simmmmmmer. Fesssssster.

You can own your hate, lady, just gimme what the law done provided me.
