Rethugs are destroying themselves by voting for Roy Moore. I'm OK with that.

This article is a bit long but it describes how Alabama will have such a hard time living this whole Roy Moore thing down and how it will put their party in such jeopardy if he wins. He is kind of like a virus that will make them all sick.

I'm really OK with all of it.

-----------------------------------------------------------

This is a man who has said that homosexuality should be a crime.

This is a man who has said that the state should use "the power of the sword" to keep gay parents from raising children.

This is a man who has said that Islam is not a religion and that the First Amendment does not apply to any religion but his brand of Christianity.

This is a man who has argued that a duly elected congressman should not be allowed to take office because he is a Muslim.

This is a man who's used his nonprofit to put money in his own pocket.

This is a man who said he is more akin than he might have known to Vladimir Putin.

And the list goes on, and gets longer with each passing day.

But one thing is certain: If elected to the the Senate, this is not a man who will disappear until this next election. He will use that new platform to preach his message every opportunity he gets. And cable TV news shows will be more than eager to give it to him, because every time he blathers something hateful or embarrassing, they'll then get to weaponize that and use it against other Republicans running for other offices.

Roy Moore would be poison for the national Republican Party, and I'm tempted to let them drink it.

1. If he wins the awful stories about him stalking young teens will be permantly

context for every rabid statement he makes in the Senate. And the republicans supported his election knowing who he was.

3. The Republicans will be known as the Party of the Child Molester.

Plus I think he will be removed from the Senate anyway and they will look horrible again. That's why McConnell and others have spoken out saying they he should drop out. They don't want him to win.

At this point, either way we win I believe.

7. I wish he would stay in and Doug Moore win. If he dropped out they could

create some quick write in republican and that would be bad.

11. Plenty of people don't care either.

If he is a Republican they will vote for him. People didn't care about the accusations against Trump that were backed by actual audio recordings. I doubt Moore will hurt the GOP with their base.

8. And they are. Look at how many seat the Democrats have picked up in the last couple of months!

Things are horrible with Trump. But everything alternates to its opposite. I am convinced we will end up with the presidency and the senate in 2018 because of Trump. Maybe even the house. And that is when we can do really great things.

We had the house, senate and presidency because of Bush. Think of how much bigger it will be this time.

10. You're assuming

that anyone will give a rat's patoot about Roy Moore in eleven months. My suspicion is that he will be old news by that point in time.

12. Actually they are taking the Dems down first!

Roy Moore is way up in all the polls. The Repubs are just sitting back watching the Dems burning each other at the stake, as the Dems have been unwittingly lured into a prejudgment trap set by Right-wing extremists who have weaponized the #MeToo movement for "fun and profit".

13. That's not true. Doug Jones had a good lead over Moore but now

they are virtually tied.

LeeAnn Tweeden has been discredited greatly. Just look at her pinned tweet about Al Franken and #metoo People are ripping her upside and down because of all the lies she has told.
