Well, Yes, That Is Special!The apparent source of inspiration for Dana Carvey's wonderful Saturday Night Live "Church Lady" character has been revealed, and she's even more horrible than he portrayed her.
Steven Farkas, Democratic candidate for mayor of Howell, NJ, is being gleefully vilified by the local Republican party for writing horror fiction. And Church Lady appears to be the leader of the holy pack.
Norine Kelly, chairwoman of the municipal GOP club, had her silver cross at the ready, her Bible firmly in hand when she stated in part: "Some people have said Stephen King has become popular with horror stories, but in my opinion Stephen King writes a lot of Satanic books."
Which, of course, is apropos of nothing.
Norine, Norine, Norine. Woman, you slay me.
Give 'em Hell, Steven.
