Said the Carpenter to the Butterfly, "Wanna See My Joist?"

Bill Bramhall, New York Daily News
Alabama voters, at least until yesterday, considered Roy Moore a Christian soldier, and he has played the part with gusto. He published a book in 2009, "So Help Me God: The Ten Commandments, Judicial Tyranny, and the Battle for Religious Freedom," in which he's the hero and the Scourge of God, whipping the sexual misdeeds and perversions of other men according to the Holy Word of God, and pushing a couple of tons of Ten Commandments uphill against an American culture that has gone to the Devil.

Apparently in Alabama, good Christian soldiers are expected to indulge in a little pedofilia. That's at least the view of one high-ranking Alabama public official.

(We just got around to reading the Washington Post investigative piece that exposes Moore's past behavior with girls as young as 14. It's convincingly detailed. The main accuser, the at-the-time 14-year-old Leigh Corfman, was a Trump voter in 2016, so Moore's screaming it's all a Democratic Party plot rings a hollow gong.)

Alabama State Auditor Jim Ziegler heard about Moore showing off through white cotton undies his stiff dick to a prepubescent girl, and Ziegler shook if off as normal. He was quoted by the Washington Examiner: "Much ado about nothing," he said. “There is nothing to see here.” (He really said that!) “The allegations are that a man in his early 30s dated teenage girls. Even the Washington Post report says that he never had sexual intercourse with any of the girls and never attempted [?] sexual intercourse."

Then Ziegler actually turned to Scripture to defend Moore:

“Take the Bible. Zachariah and Elizabeth for instance. Zachariah was extremely old to marry Elizabeth and they became the parents of John the Baptist. Also take Joseph and Mary. Mary was a teenager and Joseph was an adult carpenter. They became parents of Jesus.”

“There’s just nothing immoral or illegal here,” Ziegler concluded. “Maybe just a little bit unusual.”

As Judge Judy would say, "Miss Alabama, you picked him! You pay!"

BREAKING NEWS: Mac Watson has announced his write-in candidacy for the Alabama Senate seat, running as an independent. (He's a Republican.) He self-describes as "a states-rights Constitutional conservative. I am a free-market capitalist who believes great things can happen if the federal government just gets out of the way. I am a Christian, but I will never use my religion as either a shield or a sword in politics."

And this: Moore turned to Breitbart News to try to get ahead of the WashPost expose: "Minutes before The Post published its report, Breitbart posted a preemptive response from Moore under one of its signature, all-caps headlines: AFTER ENDORSING DEMOCRAT IN ALABAMA, WASHINGTON POST PLANS TO HIT ROY MOORE WITH ALLEGATIONS OF INAPPROPRIATE RELATIONS WITH TEENAGERS; JUDGE FIRES BACK DENIAL.”

More: Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski has reportedly urged Luther Strange, the Republican that Roy Moore beat in the primary, to stage a write-in campaign himself. Murkowski herself won a write-in campaign in 2010 after being defeated in a Republican primary by an Alaskan striped mole.

Someone just pointed out on Facebook that State Auditor Ziegler needs to be told that Joseph and Mary did not have sex to produce Jesus. Good point. Nor did Joseph make Mary look at his erect member in his tight underwear -- so far as we know.

I am afraid that multiple write-in campaigns will put Moore into office.

Of course, the U.S. Senate could refuse to seat him. What are the odds of that? I think they might be pretty good, as there will be enough R's to go with the unanimous D's. These "R's with an occasional conscience" will not wish to be on the wrong side of this issue. They know too well the direction of the winds in 2018.
