If Republicans can’t oppose Roy Moore, they’re headed for extinction

Alabama GOP Senate nominee Roy Moore serves as a convenient dividing line. If Republicans cannot oppose a former state supreme court justice ousted twice from the bench who espouses rabidly anti-Muslim views and believes homosexuality should be criminalized, the GOP is truly headed for the ash heap of history. So how are they doing?

In certainly the most cringe-worthy move of his career, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Tex.), a former Texas Supreme Court justice, declared that was “proud to offer my support to Judge Roy Moore for U.S. Senate. I look forward to working with him to pass legislation that will effect meaningful change for all Americans.”

However, a ray of sunshine peaked out from the gloom on the topic of Moore. Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) announced he wouldn’t support Moore. Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.), who has talked and written in eloquent, principled terms about our democratic creed and was one of the few senators not to endorse Trump, took a small step forward, breaking his sabbatical from moral leadership.

So the question remains: Where are the rest of the GOP senators and members of Congress on Moore? Can they bestir themselves to oppose a man surely as unfit for the Senate as Donald Trump is for the presidency? Listen, congressmen and women and senators move in packs. After a couple act, you might get a bunch more to stand up against Moore. And then another batch, and so on. As belated and comparatively mild as Sasse’s statement was, it should be welcomed. The more independent-minded Republicans are willing to push back against Trump, the better their party and our country will be.

The days of the DEM moles in the GOP are numbered.

Dimly in their walnut-sized brains, they begin to realize this.

Of course everything this tart spews is 180 degrees out! It’s amazing that I used to think it was all hyperbole, but these people really believe their own BS. Credit Rush for emphasizing how out of touch the beltway denizens are!

If I were Judge Moore I’d trumpet this trash from the Washington Post – he couldn’t receive a better endorsement than to have that rag oppose him!
