[Ed. – This time it’s a vast left-wing conspiracy.]
I’ll cut to the chase: I think Roy Moore did it. And I can predict what Moore supporters will say: “Of course you would believe that!”
After all, I called for conservatives to repudiate Moore, the Alabama Republican candidate for the Senate seat vacated by Jeff Sessions, before the Washington Post’s meticulously reported story alleging that Moore dated teenagers and, in one instance, molested a 14-year-old girl. So naturally I would exploit this politically timed “smear” to ruin a “good man.”
That’s the nature of the Moore defense I’m hearing, not just from folks on Twitter and via email, but from prominent politicos and pundits. It’s all just a hoax perpetrated by people who don’t want to Make America Great Again.
I would say it’s a terrible argument, but calling it an argument is too generous. Here’s Breitbart honcho Steven Bannon on Thursday:
“The Bezos Amazon Washington Post that dropped that dime on Donald Trump,” Bannon told a New Hampshire audience, “is the same Bezos Amazon Washington Post that dropped the dime this afternoon on Judge Roy Moore. Now is that a coincidence?”
