The new brand of Republican who will justify any conduct, excuse any behavior, rationalize any rhetoric, adopt any conspiracy theory and deny any evidence to protect the “tribe.” It’s nothing short of moral nihilism.

- writes Jennifer Rubin of the WaPo, its conservative columnist, regarding the continuing support of Moore by many GOP leaders.

Moore may well win Alabama. Anybody but a Democrat, no matter how depraved.

Yeah...kind of puts that looooooooooong time Democratic support of Robert 'KKK' Byrd to shame.

I suppose GOP now stands for Groping Orange Paedophiles?

Not that it is an exclusive club, the Ds had that "Dick Pic" guy from NY, name escapes me (OK, found him, Anthony Weiner, most appropriate surname), but he was dropped like a turd when that came out and is now doing time.

As for winning in Alabama, nothing would surprise me, for some to marry anyone more distant than third cousin would be like marrying a foreigner.

The test for the GOP is whether they will actively oppose Moore and withdraw his name. If they don't then they deserve the fallout.

The timing of this makes it a political hit job.
Maybe, but the real question is do you believe the women? At least one of them, I suspect most, voted Trump. Run for office and everybody will be looking for skeletons, regardless of party. Do you want to be represented by a scumbag that drags your party into the sewer?

This isn't some Breitbart news story, I am sure WaPo was very careful.

I think the Democrats are better than this, they wouldn't excuse this. There have been statements by Alabama GOP leaders they are going to vote for him anyway.

Those who continually spout off to everybody about how they are so enlightened and inclusive are usually the true bigots.

Well, I did say "some".

Yes I am bigoted, bigoted against ignorant, foul or injurious behaviour.

While I can, to some extent, understand someone who votes for a Bush, McCain or Romney, I have no sympathy for someone who fully understands who the likes of Trump or Moore are, but votes for them anyway. Trump, being the seasoned conman, fooled many, many people. Moore is the type who would make an Ayatollah blush in shame.

Yeah like the ones in DC who voted for Marion Barry after he was caught smoking crack with whores. He should have been run out of town but instead they are putting up a monument to hum.

Good point, I would be unlikely to vote for him or similar, but at least he was messing about with adults (I assume) not minors and poisoning himself.

Yeah but they elected him again a few years after he was caught. Now they want to build him a statue.

Moore can say it was 30 years ago and he's changed. There will be people who will buy that. Of course there were those who signed petitions for Polanski to be cleared too. There are always idiots.

Seriously, you make it sound as if there were a test, any test, which they could take and pass your moral compass. Let me spare you the reading, there clearly isn't one. You hate them. We get it. As foreign to you as a tooth brush and fluoridated water. -- jim

The National Republican Senatorial Committee has suddenly cut funding to Moore, so I regard that as going a long, long way to passing my test. I don't think they could do much more, since the Alabama Republicans seem to still back Moore, short of sending down a hitman. As for the Alabama Republicans who still support Moore .... Ugh, disgusting.

Do I hate many Republican policies? Yes, because I believe they are divisive and harm lower income people in favour of the rich and powerful, but I see that as just about being within the normal range of political discourse. The antics of Moore, Trump or Weiner are disgusting and should not be tolerated, ever. Even without the sexual stuff, Trump is clearly harming the US and threatening world peace and both Trump and Moore are a threat to your constitution and the integrity of US society. Trump has been called more than once The Divider In Chief and Moore is clearly the US version of an Iranian Ayatollah.

Here's a news flash for you, ALL POLITICS are divisive and only fools and idiots believe otherwise. You think any politician gives an actual fuck about you or me beyond the vote we cast to keep them in power? You think for a second rich and powerful people don't get favor from both sides of the aisle? Just because you happen to like your rich and powerful overlords more than the other side's rich and powerful overlords, don't think for a second they both aren't lining up to take a push into your bent over ass.

I despise Donald Trump as a human being more than just about any person here. I despised what my party has become more than just about anyone here. But nothing will drive me back to them more quickly than a sanctimonious, holier than though, know-it-all from the outside lecturing me on what I need to do. I don't care about America's position in the world. It isn't relevant to me any longer. I don't care about world peace. I don't care what anyone think's of American Integrity. If you think you can get a better deal from China, or Russia, or Brazil, or Korea, or Ireland, then go fucking make it and leave us out of it. How about you step up onto the worlds stage and lead for a while? How about you foot the bill for it for a while? It's easy to snipe from the sidelines, reading your books and smugly criticizing. -- jim
