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."

Norine, Norine, Norine. Woman, you slay me.

Give 'em Hell, Steven.

Have you ever noticed that it is ALWAYS the bible-tottin-gospel-preachin' folks that like to talk about hell? This makes perfect sense to me since they bring a little piece of it to every person within their audible range.

It's obvious that Norine needs a good pokin'.
