Hurley and pet alien in dog house

In what is clearly and thankfully not a case of a pet owner looking like her pet, state. Rep. Julia Hurley, R-Lenoir City, and her butt-ugly dog were booted from the Roane County Courthouse.

WATE, Knoxville's version of the National Enquirer, has the story right smack here.
According to the report, Hurley, who has a propensity for carving her initials into desks, said she didn't know dogs weren't allowed in the courthouse. Whaaaaat????
Er, well, I guess she just explained her need for owning a service dog. Heh.
I can't do this absurdity justice. Just read the story. Freakin' hilarious.
Seriously, if you don't you'll miss out on this gem:
Hurley says the dog was already registered as a service dog when she adopted it, and it serves as a companion.
"That's why I got her was to be my companion. I mean if I wanted to take her, if I put on her little service sweater and took her to the hospital for cancer patients, then she would be a service dog, but she's my dog. She's my companion," Rep. Hurley explained.
Ha ha ha. Oh, man. If that dog really is a service dog, I hope it's a service dog for the seeing impaired folks (re: blind people), so they don't have to look at it.

(Yeah, I know, I'm not going to heaven when I leave this rock.)

you really had to explain the "seeing impaired folks" meant blind people?

Yeah, that was probably overkill. But I figured if I had to be politically correct I'd be incorrect, too.

The other day, someone "corrected" me when I said I have a "deaf" cousin. I was told she is hearing impaired. (Course my cousin will say she is deaf.)

If WATE is the National Enquirer for breaking this story... what is KNS for running it on the front page of their website most of the afternoon?

I was referring to some past stories WATE has done. Not this one.
