Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, November 30, 2017

Let's suppose the accusations are mostly true. Then from a conservative moral perspective, Moore is guilty of lying, trying to have pre-marital sexual relations with girls half his age, and pressuring them to do so without first determining that they reciprocate. There is no sugar-coating what he did. Moore was a dirt bag and is currently lying about his actions rather than confessing the truth and asking for forgiveness.

If elected, Moore would join the ranks of other undignified politicians who have been liars and fornicators. I have a 14-year-old daughter. If I caught him doing what was alleged, for starters I would kick him where it counts. Hard. That being said, I don't think it's wrong to vote for Moore.

I'm sorry, but these two sentences don't go together. Anyone you're willing to harm physically should not ne representing you in government.

There's stupid, and there's being bloody-minded in your stupidity. Pay lip service to your own morals and wait for the thirty-year old man to come date your daughter. Then we'll see if you've got the guts to kick anyone, coward.

HAHA

never been to Alabama, have you. talk about illogical arguments.

remember when Beauregard had that woman arrested for laughing at him. I wonder what happens when they, (the Alabama "law") are "kicked" at.

"I'm sick to death of people imposing their own moral standards on people of the past, whether it's Thomas Jefferson, Robert E. Lee, George Armstrong Custer, Martin Luther King Jr, or Roy Moore."

What a crock of s**t! This was activity conducted a century ago, the morality of the time was not much different from what it is today. Moore is a predator, was a predator and will always be a predator.

Tully Borland would vote for a man who sexually abused a girl the same age as his daughter.

Ladies and gentlemen, this is your modern Republican Party. Anything goes -- no matter how immoral, criminal or depraved -- as long as you're not a Democrat.

It's perfectly fine for a 32 year old man to rape a 14 year old girl. But a woman who used to be a man must use the men's room.

That goes both ways lets look at your nominee this past cycle. Hillary went after the women Bill abused to keep them quite I would say that she committed a worse offense than Bill did yet you all love her.

Ahhh, the return of "But Jimmy did it first."

You'd think adults wouldn't be able to rely on a defense that became unusable around the age of 3.

You didn't answer though did you? I believe it was as much or more disgusting that Hillary did everything she could to silence the women her husband abused.

I believe they were both horrible. Now what've you got?

Nothing but support for the Alabama Child Predator and President Pussengrabben.

With the support of Trump and now Moore (unless the Senate votes to remove him if he wins) the Republicans lose all moral high ground when bringing up Clinton, Ted Kennedy, Barney Frank, etc.

But they can still count on your vote, so who cares? Obviously not you.

The are no worse than Dems when it comes to this stuff. Also I voted Johnson because Trump and Hillary were unfit. Also, spare me the self-righteousness. You vote Dem in spite of their covering for Minton, Kennedy and others.

Jesus Christ, Jeff.

Can you hold Moore accountable for his actions without bringing up Clinton? Ever??

That happened 20 years ago. I was in junior high school at the time.

And the Kennedys are extinct.

So... you helped elect Trump by throwing away your vote rather than vote for Clinton. Got it.

Yes, Jeff. Dems who kick Conyers out and demand ethics investigations in Franken....versus Republicans who elect them to office after news breaks.

Anything you say, Jeff.

Take it up with Snoofy, Clown.

I think Moore should drop out. If he wins I think the Senate should vote to remove him.

When was that? 30 years ago?

How is it even relevant to the Republican Party ushering in a pedophile?

Pedobama. The state where men can molest children and get elected to Congress.

No more need to go to Thailand for your pedophilic perversions. Just go to Pedobama, where you can rape children while shooting your guns.

And if you happen to get those 14 year old girls pregnant. They can't get an abortion.

Republican logic is absurd.

Moore is a sexual predator but he's not a pedophile. Pedophiles target pre-pubescent children.

Thanks for the technicalities.

I still consider 14 year olds to be children.

Not "pre pubescent". But children nonetheless.

Honest question. Would you be more outraged if the girls were 12?

Funny, from the guy who "votes his conscience."

Maybe you'd like to spare yourself your own -------- someday? Nah, just keep voting for lower taxes. Your conscience fits nicely into your wallet.

"Moore is a sexual predator but he's not a pedophile"

I'm not sure why you're calling him a sexual predator, can you point out the alleged predatory behavior?

"Hillary went after the women Bill abused."

You mean like, with a cloth?
What exactly did she do, when she "went after" them?
Stuff any defense lawyer would do, or was there more?

Snoofy was playing the self righteous card and I put it back on him.

Yes, Moore's actions would have been worse if he preyed on pre-pubescent children. That doesn't dampen what he did. I deliberately avoided the word "allegedly" because I believe his accusers.

Snoofy was playing the shame card and I held up a mirror. So naturally you only take umbrage with me.

My point, Jeff, is Republicans are completely party over country and they're not even hiding it.

They know their base loathes the Clintons. So. No matter how awful they are, and their actions are, they can simply say "Clinton" and all their deplorables look the other way.

Trump is accused of sexual assault and harassment. "But Clinton!"

Moore is accused or pedophila. "But Clinton!"

Net neutrality is being voted on. "But Clinton!"

The tax plan being voted on will destroy the Middle Class. "But Clinton!"

I wasn't a fan of Hillary's. But I don't hate her enough to justify giving the republicans free reign to do whatever they want.

If your conscience allows you to help Trump get elected, you should give it a good talking to.

I'm a registered Republican. Prior to ‘16 I voted: Dole, Bush, Bush, McCain, Romney.

If anything, my Johnson vote benefited Clinton.
