Over the last couple of months, if you live in Alabama, you've kinda watched the governor (Bently) go through some divorce situation.
Our governor, Robert J. Bentley, is a Republican and the 53rd governor of the state. He's 73 years old and probably was the least known guy to ever run and win the office of governor in the state (at least people say that).
What folks will say is that Bentley had some kind of affair with a political adviser. No one was sure about this deal....well....up until this week when some taped conversation between Bentley and the adviser took place, and Bentley spoke a fair bit to the gal about his passion.
When Alabama guys get all chatty with liaison gals.....there's not much Shakespearean in the words. It's the kind of conversation that would be in some trampy gal meeting up with doctor Steve on a train.....not some Robert Redford-Madonna romance movie.
How did the tape come to exist? The governor's wife apparently made it, but oddly....it doesn't become public until after the governor fired the head of the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency. Shortly after this guy was terminated....the tape came out.
The words from the tape?
"......I worry about loving you so much. When I stand behind you, and I put my arms around you, and I put my hands on your breasts, then just pull you real close. I love that, too."
Somewhere down the line, I suspect some guy from Alabama will write up some cheap novel piece...."The Governor's Lust" and a hundred thousand Alabama folks will buy the book to read at night to drive up their passion.
"There among the pines, with a soft wind from Jasper blowing, Governor Larry thought greatly of his new found passion....Ms Loretta. She wore a fine cotton bathrobe and lusty laced Redwing boots as she opened the trailer door. There was little left to imagine with her 240-pound frame pushed into a rather tight green bathrobe (purchased recently at Wal-Mart). She had prepared supper with a fancy upscale TV dinner from the Piggly Wiggly.....Salisbury Steak and mashed potatoes. Ms. Loretta handed Larry a Pabst Blue Ribbon (PBR) and blew smoke from a freshly lit Winston cigarette. Larry had little time for dinner, but he never turned down a Salisbury Steak. In the background was Ozark Mountain music, that made the heart throb, and brought tears to the governor's eyes."
