(Chicago Tribune) -- Remember these words: “We don’t need a liberal person in there, a Democrat.”
They mark a moment of immorality from which the Republican Party may not return.
They were spoken, of course, by President Donald Trump, a man who long ago surrendered his own morality to make room for more ego. He was leaving the White House for a Thanksgiving vacation and was asked about Roy Moore, the Republican nominee for U.S. Senate in Alabama, a man who has now been repeatedly accused of hitting on, flirting with, attempting to date and sexually assaulting teenage girls when he was in his 30s.

The allegations against Moore are numerous and credible, and have now been backed up by extensive accounts from others who remember him as a mall-cruising weirdo young women knew to avoid. If you read the reporting done by newspapers in Alabama, it sounds like Moore’s predilection for young girls was common knowledge when he was an assistant district attorney in Etowah County.
