Roy Moore story shows how desperate Democrats are

By all measures, Democrats had a pretty good week. They won a bunch of elections in places they should win elections in -- along the coasts -- and the Menendez trial looks like another case of over-reach by a federal prosecutor.

But along came the Washington Post to remind the world how little Democrats have today, and how worried they are about having even less tomorrow.

The Post tried to turn Judge Roy Moore -- the Republican nominee for the Alabama Senate seat -- into Harvey Weinstein with a woman in her 50s saying Moore propositioned her when she was 14.

I have already shown how little credibility the Washington Post has after falling for hoax, after hoax, after hoax regarding President Trump. ("Why should we believe the Washington Post?")

And at least one report shows that even among Republicans who don't like Moore in Alabama, people are not buying the report.

There is a hollowness to this claim by the Post. Alabamans have elected and unelected Judge Moore a couple of times to the state Supreme Court. In all that time -- through all the controversy -- the accuser remained silent?

That makes no sense.

However, she's also a partisan -- a political activist who worked on Hillary's campaign. Her political activities cast shade on the veracity of her claim.

But the Washington Post story is a throwback to a bygone era in which a national publication or news organization could kill a political career with a fabulist's accusation.

President Trump pretty much ended that last year by surviving the Billy Bush tape.

The usual suspects are making the usual noise. The Republican Senate bureaucracy cut off funds for Moore. And John McCain and his army of liberals pretending to be conservatives have self-righteously denounced Moore.

They think this case is Christine O'Donnell or Todd Akin all over again, when the Establishment Republicans could squash a Republican senatorial candidate.

But it is not 2010 or 2012. It is Year One of the Trump Era. The old kowtowing to liberals ended.

Democrats may steal the seat. Who knows? There is a month left till the election and Roy Moore's political career is more roller than coaster.

But going all in against him based on a telephone call nearly 40 years ago smacks of desperation. The state is solidly Republican now, ever since Democrats became the Party of Al Gore.

Democrats have to win 25 of the 33 Senate races next year just to keep from slipping further back.

About half those 33 races are in Trump states like Alabama. Good luck with that.

I don't think last-minute allegations from 40 years ago is the way to win the Senate back.

But we shall see.

    1. It gets to the point where your self-respect is involved. I expect everyone to bald faced lie about Moore. Thing is, there's no real difference between the rinos and dems. Socialism and Marxism go hand in hand. We'll see about Alabama. One thing is for certain.....the liars chorus is just tuning up.

  4. I say elect Roy Moore. Too many allegations have proven groundless. We can address the charges again if firm evidence is presented. No sense in strengthen the Democrat's socialist agenda based on a rumor.

    1. Yep.

      If the accusations are true - he can be evicted from office, but if he's forced out by such unverifiable 40-year-old "accusations", no honest politician will ever again have a chance.

      Accusers are easy to get: just drag a 100 dollar bill through a Trailer Park

  5. No pattern of behavior in Moore's life. However, the WashPoo has a gross pattern of behavior. Lying then and lying now.

  6. John McRINO also has a gross pattern of behavior. How about you Arizona? Does your conscience bother you electing this anti-Trump "Republican"? - GOC

    1. Republican voters in AZ hate McCain. He wins in spite of the voters, not because of them. He's got the local system rigged.

    2. It's the same with Lady Lindsey here in SC. The primaries are open so he pays Democrats to vote for him in the spring to kill off any real opposition, then he coasts to a win in November.

  7. The shills are out in force on the message boards over this race. They're not even concern-trolling ("Gee, guys- I really liked Moore, but these charges look bad. I don't think I can support him anymore.") They're just openly gloating, as if they've scored a victory. But it doesn't look like the Alabama voters have been fooled one little bit.
