Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, November 12, 2017

Max Boot: You may have thought that Republicans had sunk as low as they could possibly go last year when they nominated for the presidency a man who was singularly unfit, morally and mentally, for that post. But, no, once you start racing to the bottom you never quite stop. There is always another level of degeneracy to be plumbed. Enter Roy Moore, the Republican Senate candidate in Alabama. He believes that "homosexual conduct should be illegal" and that Muslims should not be permitted to serve in Congress. Now the Washington Post reports that this fearless crusader for "traditional values" had a habit of propositioning underage girls.

In the final analysis, no indictment of their candidate will convince the faithful. As Trump once said, "I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn't lose voters." Or, more to the point, Roy Moore could molest a 14-year-old girl and not lose votes. Because for Republican partisans, their opponents are "the forces of evil," and anything is preferable to that. Even Donald Trump. Even Roy Moore. So in ostensibly fighting evil, Republicans have become complicit in it.

This is a party that does not deserve to survive.

What was that 14 year old girl wearing? If she was asking for it, what is a 30 year old guy supposed to do?
- asking for a GoP friend.

Well duh. It's been obvious for decades that party loyalists don't give a crap about the candidate. Bush re-election was a more glaring example and on the national level.

People are smashing their Keurig coffee makers because Keurig pulled its advertising from Hannity's show after he defended Moore's dating habits...

This is your Republican party.

Because they are exactly the same right?

One wants to protect workers, save the environment, make sure people have insurance. The other wants to cut taxes on rich people, cut benefits for the poor, deregulate and essentially screw everyone who isn't 1%.

Yes, Jeff, they are exactly the same.

Don't forget, one also wants to allow 32 year old men to molest 14 year old girls.

I didn't say they are exactly the same.

I said neither deserves to survive.

"I said neither deserves to survive."

Well, that is the correct Republican talking point to use when confronted with someone objecting to you saying "both parties are the same." Doesn't make it true though.

Meanwhile, the annual deficit grew steadily smaller under Obama.

When did the Democratic Party support Woody Allen and whoever is this "Romansky" person?

You know, the way all GOP members of the Alabama Congressional delegation to the US House are supporting Moore the child molester?

The reason why pfc. boaz likes Trump is that Trump is as stupid as pfc. boaz.

Are you referring to SENATOR woody allen or PRESIDENT Polanski?

Nope. Liberals dont vote for their pervs. They're ostracized. Those bible thumping repubs go ahead and vote for them again and again.

And a man who molests a girl is a senator.

But we gotta protect our girls from those transgender monsters! So we can hand them over to horny republican predators.

What a weird thing to say. Why would anyone waste their time trying to justify their lifestyles to mental midgets such as yourself?

Anyway...YOU are with the group of Deplorable's that voted for the "Groper".

Don't blame us.

Well,

There has been no evidence and you people have already convicted him.

I guess I could get five people to say Obama was born in Kenya because they used to play with him there as kids, would you believe them?

There's absolute proof President Obama was born in Hawaii.

Hans,

Then why did Obama get student aid as a foreign student as the rumors say?

Wow.

On this thread, a rumor (from a wacko website) is all you need.

On a neighboring thread, five women coming forward still isn't enough.
