No Moore

Roy Moore, like the comparably repugnant Milo Yiannopoulos, has learned that enough people who are not offended by the desire to go back to the good old days before the New Deal and the 13th Amendment are repelled by sex with teenagers to make a difference. It would be churlish to point out that many of these people are willing to treat children far below the sexual age of consent as adults if they are accused of a sufficiently offensive crime, that two teens who are caught experimenting will be accused of molesting one another and perhaps forced to register as sexual predators for the rest of their lives, and that many of these voters are significantly less concerned with children not having enough to eat or a roof over their heads. Nevertheless, I have done so.
