Kentucky clerk Kim Davis' release from jail Tuesday was a spectacle, no doubt.
TV cameras beamed images of the moment around the nation. The crowd in Grayson, Ky., roared and waved crosses outside the detention center as their champion — jailed for refusing to issue same-sex marriage licenses because of her religious beliefs — emerged after five nights behind bars.
“Would you please help me welcome to the stage — Kim Davis!” said the event's emcee, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, as the Rowan County clerk thrust her fists into air. Then a familiar anthem blasted: the opening to Survivor's “Eye of the Tiger.”
