I have to give Justice Roy Moore credit for his fighting spirit. Sadly, he really didn’t use the uppercuts when he really needed to, especially when women came out and made all those allegations against him. Being nice and saying that I would not date anyone unless my parents and their parents approved just don’t cut the mustard.
The only thing I don’t like about this whole thing is it gives the establishment GOP some credence and the right to talk down to constituents as Senator Mitch McConnell tried to do in the Rose Garden earlier this year. The likes of McConnell are going to tell you who they think are the best candidates and who they think can win. Moore had the name recognition and was heavily publicized for his stance on God’s Law and not removing the 10 Commandments from the halls of justice from which he served. Mo Brooks, while he might have been better than Moore, just was not a household name that Moore was.
Now the Democrats have some thin bragging rights with Doug Jones, and we shall keep an eye on this Senator for as long as he holds office. As for Moore, sadly my brother, the progressives have finally beaten you once and for all. It is time to fight as a private citizen like the rest of us.
And only Stephanie Douglas Forrester could have beaten Brooke Logan once and for all…but that is just a silly TV daytime drama. I still love Stephanie’s passion to fight for what she wants, and call Brooke “the slut of the valley.”
I debated writing this up because giving Roy Moore any more attention at this point seems about as counterproductive as a thing can be. But I think it’s turning into a very good object lesson for any conservative voters who are willing to learn it.
There were all kinds of signs throughout the campaign, even before the pedophilia allegations, that Moore has some problems with reality. When he sued to stop the certification of Doug Jones’s victory, claiming there surely had to be voter fraud in a state that has stringent voter ID requirements, even the Republican Secretary of State (who publicly acknowledged having voted for Moore) dismissed the claim as utterly ridiculous. Because it was.
