Alabama US Senate candidate Roy Moore was unfit by the standards of the elite political class.
Undeniably, Judge Roy Moore is the guy who married a woman fourteen years his junior. She was 23, he was 37, and he has been married to her for 33 years.
That last part might well go under the radar, as the theme of the year is sexual predation. Under the current hysteria it is far easier to assign a label of ‘creeper,’ ‘pedophile,’ or ‘mall stalker’ than to look at the reality of the man’s life. It is apparently now far easier to accuse a public persona of violating the mob conscience than it is to defend such accusations made in the 11th hour of an important electoral milestone.
And in that last, even the #Nevertrump insanity found plausible means to lash out indirectly at a Trump agenda that has so far proven them not just wrong, but simply foolish.
#NeverTrumpers had their symbol of failure to rally about. They said Roy Moore was a pedophile, a dirtbag, a predator, and a creepy guy because he was committed to Trump’s agenda, even though Trump himself had originally rejected Moore in favor of a mainstream preferred Luther Strange.
