Politicians have to be polite. It’s part of their job.

So, since they’re not supposed to say “fuck you” to their legislative adversaries, many politicos do it the democratic way – by pissing on their foes’ legislation. That’s what Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear did to his predecessor, Ernie Fletcher.

Fletcher, a Republican, used his power to strip gay and trans inclusion from state agencies’ non-discrimination policies. Democrat Beshear didn’t think that very fair, so he issued an executive order to restore said queer inclusion.

In your face, Fletcher!
