Al Franken is staying in the senate. John Conyers is staying in the House. Bill Clinton will die a free and wealthy man.
If anyone needs to rationalize a vote for Roy Moore, there it is.
“But what Roy Moore
did is accused of is so much worse than what Al Franken is accused of actually did.”
Fine then. Let us remember then that a Democrat Congressman sodomized a sixteen or seventeen year old House Page, was re-elected six times by his Democrat constituents, and had a Wildlife Sanctuary named for him by his Democrat colleagues. (He remains an LGBT hero.)
So, basically, the voters of Alabama have a choice between a guy who was possibly forty years ago a moral reprobate, and a guy who will vote in lockstep with Kamala Harris and Chuck Schumer on abortion, gun control, tax policy, and amnesty for illegal immigrants. for a lot of people, this is a sucky choice. But it is what it is.
When this story broke, I was sure Roy Moore was toast; and he probably would have been if the Al Franken story hadn’t broken on top of Gloria Allred getting involved and promoting an accuser with a forged yearbook and a story that fell apart like an IKEA entertainment center. He probably has a shot now that the Democrats have demonstrated it was always about power and never about women. He really should send Al and Gloria a nice thank you note for the lifeline they threw him.
I also don’t think it’s gone unnoticed that certain Republicans who were outspoken about Roy Moore have been conspicuously silent about Al Franke.
On an unrelated note, Colin Kaepenick is old enough to run for Senate against Dianne Feinstein. Wouldn’t that be fun to watch?
