Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, December 12, 2017

Hannah Keyser, Deadspin: If you're a reasonable, decent, sentient person paying even half-assed attention to the credible and relentless news cycle regarding Roy Moore's predilection for preying on underage girls, you will not be voting for him in Alabama's special election for a senator today. The candidate arrived at the polls on horseback hoping to impress anyone and everyone else. But if you are one of those people whose moral standards could be swayed by a theatrical tableau of vintage Americana -- but, like, Western iconography, as opposed to Southern, for some reason -- allow me to point out that he seems to suck at riding a horse.

If Moore wins, Trump has someone to compare notes with.

On top of the raping and poor horse riding? The disregard for the constitution? The racism? The pedophilia?

There is a word limit to the posts or I could go on.

Child molestation should be all we need.

Why do you think a child molester belongs in the senate?

Well, Sniper, it wasn't us libs who kicked him off the Alabamistan Supreme Court, twice. It was his fellow right wing, wing ding judges, who are not libs.

So there's that.

Not sure if he's even been near a horse before let alone ridden one.

Generally horses are trained either using English or Western Style commands.

If the saddle has a pommel horn, it's western and you hold the reins with left hand (right hand can hold the slack, but control is done with left hand), move hand in direction you want the horse to go.

If the saddle has no pommel horn, it's English and you hold reins in both hands and pull with the hand that is the direction you want to go (left hand = left, right hand = right)

So basically he is riding a horse with a western saddle using English style commands and the horse is antsy because it has no idea what it's being told to do based on how it was trained.

Some people are impressed with publicity stunts to show he's a "Mans man", but when fail as badly as this because the person doing it doesn't have a clue, it's funny as hell.

Unfortunately.

The smart play would have been for the GOP in Alabama to figuratively kick Moore to the curb and start a write-in campaign. It'll be a shame if he gets elected as it sends the message that it's OK to diddle underage girls as long as you toe the party line.

The only thing you want to slam him with lives in your SansaBelts, and doesn't work very well anymore.

Kind of stupid criticism. Most people can't ride a horse well.

That horse may not be young enough for Roy.

well most people don't ride horses, and he tried to portray himself as an american cowboy riding into the polls to save the day.
maybe he should have just drove to the polls.

Take it from a real equestrian, that was a horrible display of horsemanship. Moore didn't have a clue what he was doing and neither did the poor horse. Moore was trying to show off but he looked like a damn fool out there. What an idiot.

Damn right, at least though, we don't make stuff up like REpublicans do.

BTW, last night Moore was DEFEATED! Margin too large to demand a recount. Alabama demands to be counted as a decent part of America and we applaud them!

Sassy may have something to say about all of this.

Find?

Roy Moore is the gift that keeps on giving.

Finding isn't necessary.

Poor Roy, he came in a little behind.
