I don’t need to do the jokes, you’ve likely heard them all by now. Kirby Delauter, a county councilman in Frederick County, Maryland, was angered that he was quoted in a recent newspaper article where the growing pains in the Frederick County government were having. The county has gone from a commissioner system to a county charter system recently. The article written by Bethany Rodgers in the Frederick News-Post on 3 January 2015 pointed out some of these partisan growing pains as well as bipartisan calls for more patience and communication.

Kirby Delauter was quoted about his desire to have more parking spaces as was county councilman and like Delauter former commissioner Billy Shreve. Both of these men are Republicans; Shreve a Realtor in Frederick County is an at Large member of the council while Kirby Delauter represents the rural area around Thurmont. Now Kirby Delauter wasn’t happy that he, as a conservative member of government and pillar of the business community in Thurmont was quoted, “without his permission” by Ms Rodgers. He fired back at her, on Facebook no less, that if she did it again, and by it I mean wrote his name in an article and it went to print, she would need a lawyer. Worse, Shreve defended Kirby Delauter by saying, “When asked if news media outlets should obtain permission to publish an elected official’s name or reference, Shreve said, “I think media outlets are cowards and they hide behind the label of journalists and that’s a bully pulpit to expand their liberal (agenda).””

Well that sort of goes against the Bill of Rights. You know that founding document that the Right wing lunatics hold dearest second only to the Bible? How is it that Kirby Delauter being a conservative who likely carries a Constitution in his suit coat pocket and keeps one under his pillow just in case a socialist ends up in his bed would think that he could threaten a member of the Fourth Estate? I believe Kirby Delauter fell victim of the intoxication that comes from being an elevated member of the Second Estate in America today. His legislative power and business power have gone to his head and once it got there and mixed with all the conservative ideas about governing he simply lost his mind.

In Hindsight
Here’s the sickest thing about the world you live in today. Stupid people often gain power and wealth and there’s little the intelligent and powerless can do about it. Well, there is one thing you can do about it– wait for a numbskull like Delauter to open his mouth. Palin Delauter 2016?
