Life and Times of Judge Roy Moore

Jailbait allegations persist against Republican U.S. Senate candidate Judge Roy Moore of Alabama. They say he chased teenyboppers in his thirties. He’s now 70.

A then high school senior claims she was pulled out of trigonometry class to take a phone call from him asking for a date. Another woman says she got him banned from a mall for for making “unwanted” advances. And another accuser says he tried to rape her when she was 16. He denied even knowing her. So she held up a high school year book he signed for her.

Moore told Sean Hannity he “generally” did not date teens as an adult. The mall manager says he never banned Moore from the mall. And the judge’s lawyer implied the yearbook signature is a forgery.

By the way, Saudi women get to drive next year.

 

McCain Health Care Bill Kills

Senator McCain sided with Jimmy Kimmel in shooting down best bud Lindsey Graham on Friday. He announced he would vote “no” on the Graham Cassidy health care reform.

Two McCain Bill Kills

Those in the know think that pretty much kills the bill. And that would make two health bill kills for McCain.

Damn, should have drawn that on the fuselage.

Republican Leaders

Republican leaders told President Trump they had a plan to get things done in Congress. They didn’t. And the swamp remains.

So Trump made a deal with Chuck Schumer to raise the debt ceiling and free up billions for hurricane victims. Now he’s looking at Schumer for more deals.

Republican Leaders

Here’s what Rich Lowry has to say about that:

The idea that Trump, who has been too inept to help his own party in Congress, will team up with perhaps the most deviously shrewd Democrat in the country and come out on top is difficult to credit. Schumer will milk Trump for whatever he can get — every tactical advantage, every bit of new spending — so long as he doesn’t give away anything important and doesn’t materially boost Trump’s political standing.

National Review’s Jonathan Tobin thinks the Republican party means nothing to Trump. Maybe for good reason:

Trump is unbound by any loyalty to the party that nominated him or to men such as House speaker Paul Ryan and Senator Mitch McConnell. To the contrary, he regards them as foes in a cold war against a political establishment he neither likes nor trusts.

The Mooch Had A Very Bad Week

Anthony Scaramucci (a.k.a. The Mooch) had a very bad week. A short one too.

President Trump appointed him communications director over the objections of Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, and Press Secretary Sean Spicer.

Mooch’s Very Bad Week

Spicer got mad and quit, sort of. Mooch fired Priebus. His wife divorced him. Harvard Law School listed him as dead. He called Priebus a f-ing paranoid schizophrenic in a New Yorker interview. And then new White House chief of staff,  stand up straight shooter Marine Gen. John Kelly, fired him.

Kind of like Jack Ruby whacking Lee Harvey Oswald.

Oh, and his ex-wife gave birth.

It was a week with the makings of a country song.

A recent study of deceased NFL players found that 99% suffered brain damage. We think Congress can do better.
