Craziest hobby ever

Apparently Michigan has a law protecting civil servants from being fired for their political views, even if those views lead to the assistant attorney general following the student body president of a local university around and creating an obsessive, childish blog about him.

I really can't wrap my head around this one - he agreed to be interviewed for this story to smugly defend his unreasonable actions, and I imagine when this interview ended, Andrew Shirvell thought he'd "won" the discussion.

This story gives everyone on the blogosphere something they want. Left wing bloggers can see a religious extremist stalking a gay college student, right wing bloggers can demonstrate the unreasonable level of job protection given to civil servants and non-political bloggers get a big dose of crazy.
