Mullinsiana: Joe Mullins, the Flagler County commissioner turned narc detective, has been inspiring all sorts of theories after almost single-handedly bringing drug dealing in Flagler to a halt earlier this week. Another reader writes: “He asks his real drug dealer to pick out a patsy the real dealer wants to put in a jam, perhaps a kid who couldn’t pay his bill, and set him up by telling him he can work of his debt, get high and avoid a permanent limp all by texting a certain # and delivering drugs the real dealer provides. Kid gets busted but doesn’t dare rat out the real dealer who set him up and has no way of being tied to Joe unless the real dealer rolls on Mullins. The rest is a story on FlaglerLive.”

A man who sets out to make himself up is taking on the Creator’s role, according to one way of seeing things; he’s unnatural, a blasphemer, an abomination of abominations. From another angle, you could see pathos in him, heroism in his struggle, in his willingness to risk: not all mutants survive. Or, consider him sociopolitically: most migrants learn, and can become disguises. Our own false descriptions to counter the falsehoods invented about us, concealing for reasons of security our secret selves. A man who invents himself needs someone to believe in him, to prove he’s managed it. Playing God again, you could say. Or you could come down a few notches, and think of Tinkerbell; fairies don’t exist if children don’t clap their hands. Or you might simply say: it’s just like being a man.
–From Salman Rushdie’s The Satanic Verses (1989).

Laughter is the best medicine in the world. Thanks Flaglerlive so much for sharing the cartoon, the St. John’s talk show and most of all for trying to make sure we all know what a wacko will do to get re-elected.
That radio skit is “Saturday Night Live” quality. Like OJ, Will Mullins spend the rest of his days looking for that dealer?

Once again, great laughs!! Joe Mullins turning himself inside out like a pretzel trying to look like a super hero?? Wow…this really really really (add about 20 more reallys) smells SO bad…not only for Mullins..but for the Flagler County Sheriff as well! We know Mullins is that stupid to think we will all fall for this bull sh*t, but really? No law enforcement officer worth their salt would EVER believe this BS. More reallys here….
