Claiming that it’s all to make a point about frivolous lawsuits, Nebraska radical Ernie Chambers – who is not a member of any political party, but is a confirmed agnostic – filed a lawsuit against “God” last week, demanding the Almighty’s appearance and asking the court for a summary judgment for the L-rd’s failure to appear. His request is for the Divine Being to “cease certain harmful activities and the making of terroristic threats.”
The media, who always get behind a good G-d hater, are making him out to be some sort of free-speech hero. But this isn’t about freedom of speech, which he obviously enjoys and is making full use of.
This is simply about a politician being an ass. (So he better steer clear of Senator Larry Craig!)
The media’s favorite label for Chambers is, “the angriest black man in Nebraska,” but this has nothing to do with race, either. Just like recent outbursts by Sally Field and Barry Manilow (see my HollywoodIdiocy blog), it’s an attention-getting ploy. And he’s received what we wanted, from write-ups nationwide to enjoying a session of political paparazzi attention, to being approached by new admirers armed with digital cameras.
Enjoy it while it lasts, State Senator Chambers; there are many of us who see through the cheap publicity stunt.
