Pope I would have thought child molestation was THE line for what the GOP would refuse to tolerate. Guess I was wrong. November 10, 2017 7:45 AM Log in to Reply Dave Bearse It was consensual, plus it isn’t prohibited in the Bible, unlike government issuing marriage licenses to same sex couples is. November 10, 2017 8:01 AM Log in to Reply Andrew C. Pope Support health care for children = bad Oppose tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires = bad Molest kids = can’t talk right now, trying to pass tax cuts. Espouse abject racism, bigotry, and homophobia = look, we’re just trying to focus on tax cuts.

Mary was a teenager and Joseph was an adult carpenter. They became parents of Jesus.” If I think that statement is comical, moronic, and appalling as well as more than a little blasphemous, does that make me anti-Christian? Full disclosure, I say Happy Holidays and have for years. November 10, 2017 9:49 AM Log in to Reply David C I’ve said Happy Holidays for years, but it’s mostly because I’m a huge fan of alliteration. November 10, 2017 1:44 PM Log in to Reply xdog Alliteration’s alright. November 10, 2017 3:27 PM Log in to Reply Dave Bearse So does the Alabama State Auditor not believe in immaculate conception, or is he too stupid to comprehend that’s what he’s implying? You make the call. November 11, 2017 1:34 PM Log in to Reply Dave Bearse “A Democratic lawmaker walked out of a moment of silence for the Texas shooting victims on Monday night to protest a lack of action on gun safety after mass shootings in the United States.” Sarah Palin tweeted “What a disgrace. This Rep. should be ashamed of himself. You’re a member of Congress, for crying out loud.” The reply from Rep. Ted Lieu.: “Dear @SarahPalinUSA: Feel free to call me names because I’m cool like that. But I will keep fighting for gun safety. Unlike you I don’t quit.” November 10, 2017 8:04 AM Log in to Reply Dave Bearse At least 87 Republicans and 6 Democrats have checked out of the House or will check out at the end of this term. Perhaps the latest, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Goodlatte (VA) announced yesterday he’s calling it quits November 10, 2017 8:15 AM Log in to Reply John Vestal There are worse outcomes for the GOP than Roy Moore not getting elected to the Senate…. …like, for instance, Roy Moore getting elected to the Senate. November 10, 2017 9:02 AM Log in to Reply Benevolus It would almost be worth it hear Al Franken and Roy Moore debating Moore’s (hypothetical) bill “An Act to Provide and Install A Giant 10 Commandments Sculpture in the US Capitol”.

Source – Me, a person who has been in the Supreme Court building on numerous occasions. November 10, 2017 4:46 PM Log in to Reply Noway2016 Take a gander behind the nine justices. They’re there. From a person that’s been there. Touche! November 10, 2017 4:55 PM zedsmith Notorious child molester Muhammad (peace be unto him) is also depicted in the Supreme Court— so maybe Roy Moore is just playing the long game of a plum judicial appointment. November 10, 2017 9:44 PM Noway2016 Next time, do your homework. Ol’ Moses is also holding them on the outside of the building as well as their being carved on two interior doors. Your reflexive dislike for anything pertaining to the Christian religion is predictable and troubling. November 10, 2017 5:12 PM Andrew C. Pope The Ten Comandments are not inscribed anywhere in the Supreme Court. Yes, Moses is depicted in friezes on the exterior and interior of the building (along with other early Legal philosophers). However, the tablets he is holding refer to the 10 Amendments comprising the Bill of Rights. November 10, 2017 5:48 PM Will Durant Uh, Ten Commandments, Moses, The Exodus, 12 tribes… Weren’t those first Jewish things and grafted upon by Christians? LOL May I suggest a listen to Kinky Friedman’s They Ain’t Making Jews Like Jesus Anymore. November 10, 2017 5:34 PM Noway2016 LMAO! Yes, because Moses was famous for holding tablets depicting the (10) Bill of Rightsand nottttttt the Ten Commandments given to him by God!!! You secularists are truly pathetic . Please keep posting your typical revisionist tripe! November 10, 2017 6:42 PM Andrew C. Pope Bruh. For one, I think my admiration for Moses is a little greater than yours. The artist who carved the frieze said it is supposed to represent the Bill of Rights: https://www.supremecourt.gov/about/eastandwestwalls.pdf Your reflexive dislike for anything pertaining to fact is predictable and troubling. November 11, 2017 8:14 AM David C I’m not sure y’all want voters in 2018, 2020, and 2022 hearing Senator X voted 99% of the time with pedophile Roy Moore everytime they turn on the TV in October. November 10, 2017 1:47 PM Log in to Reply Nefarious You mean the man who said that being a homosexual should be illegal, Muslims should not hold office, and transgender people don’t have rights is not a good dude?

Pope Kudos to Mitt Romney: Innocent until proven guilty is for criminal convictions, not elections. I believe Leigh Corfman. Her account is too serious to ignore. Moore is unfit for office and should step aside.” He joints McCain as the only other prominent Republican to rebuke Roy Moore.* Like I said yesterday, I put the over-under at 2.5. *For the record, hedging your statement with “if the allegations are true” is a major cop-out. You have 4 accusers and 30 corroborating witnesses. What other evidence are you expecting to surface that will “prove” the allegations? This is just a way for Republican lawmakers to sound concerned without really taking a stand against a cretin like Moore. Like I said above, the present-day GOP is apparently cool with child molestation as long as you support a massive tax cut for corporations and billionaires. **As a second point, if you had 4 women and 30 witnesses telling you that your child’s babysitter engaged in inappropriate relationships with teenagers, would you say “well, let’s wait and see how the facts play out” or would you be looking for a different babysitter? November 10, 2017 1:48 PM Log in to Reply Nefarious From the National Review: “Oh, and by the way, I’d like someone to please give me some examples of women who have launched themselves to fame and fortune by falsely accusing men of sexual assault — because we all know that that’s not what happens. What does happen is their reputations are scrutinized harshly, and the allies of the powerful men they’ve accused comb through their pasts looking for evidence that they’re liars. People are afraid to employ them; men are afraid to speak to them; their lives are forever changed. Make no mistake: Speaking out publicly about your abuse is not a way to stardom; it’s a painful, harrowing experience and a sacrifice that so few are able to actually make given how brutal the consequences can be.” Read more at: http://www.nationalreview.com/article/453632/roy-moore-defenders-disgusting November 10, 2017 9:14 PM Log in to Reply Dave Bearse Thanks for sharing the link. A National Review column is unlikely to be something I’d have gone to on my own. My takeaway quote: “We also have Joel Pollak of Breitbart swooping in to say that, like, only one of Moore’s accusers was 14 and that we shouldn’t even be talking about the girls who were 16 and 18. First of all, if your defense of a pedophile is actually “But he only molested one kid!” then I’d say it’s pretty clear you need to take a long, hard look at yourself in the mirror and wonder why the sight of yourself doesn’t make you start throwing up.” November 11, 2017 1:48 PM Log in to Reply Noway2016 Can somebody explain the college football playoff scene now that GA got killed by Auburn? November 12, 2017 10:43 AM Log in to Reply Andrew C. Pope New top 4 will likely be: 1) Bama, 2) Miami, 3) Clemson, 4) Oklahoma. I would expect UGA to slot in at #6 (behind unbeaten Wisconsin) If UGA wins out, they’re in the playoff. If they lose the title game to Bama, they’ll need some lucky bounces (namely OU losing in its conference title game, OSU losing to Michigan, Wisconsin not winning Big Ten) November 12, 2017 2:38 PM Log in to Reply augusta52 Noway, in addition to your college playoff question above, perhaps someone can explain the game itself, that is, Georgia getting wiped out by Auburn. And from the “how low can they go?” category” Auburn Coach Guz Malzahn challenging a Georgia first down late in the fourth quarter when Auburn was up by 30 points……… November 13, 2017 8:45 AM Log in to Reply Add a Comment Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
