Skip to comments.Two reporters are in Alabama trying to discredit Roy Moore’s accusers. They haven’t found much

Roy Moore is a Steve Bannon fantasy candidate. Hes an insurgent populist, a self-described renegade who shares Bannons arsonist attitude toward the Republican establishment and cares little for the proprieties of D.C. Or the basic standards of a civilized society, apparently, given that two women have accused Moore of criminal sexual assault and three more say he tried to date them when they were teenagers and he was in his thirties.
But to Bannon, who has returned to a leadership role at Breitbart since leaving the Trump administration, deviance is working alongside Mitch McConnell, not setting a conduct bar so low that even Anthony Weiner can clear it. Bannon wont let Moores odiousness stand in the way of his burn-it-down dreams: Hes a Leninist, a fire-starter, and hes got a trick up his sleeve.
Make that two, in the form of Aaron Klein and Matthew Boyle, the reporters who together constitute Breitbarts investigative team. Bannon has sent them down to Alabama on a mission to defend Moore and discredit the bombshell Post report from last week, and their work is already bearing fruit. Just yesterday they broke a whopping four stories, each headline beginning with a breathless EXCLUSIVE. Step aside, Bob and Carl two new gunslingers just rode in.
Many Alabama voters think that Moore brings enough good to the table that its worth overlooking the bad, even as the bad gets worse, and worse, and worse. Breitbart is doing its best to persuade them to remain entrenched, while the party leadership has refused to go along with Moore and his predations. If Bannon wins, the Republican party will resemble a more sinister version of the Democrats circa 96.
On second thought, maybe we should be thankful that he keeps Klein and Boyle around.

And he is an agent for the DEEP STATE SWAMP...IMHO, of course.
Did you know that I heard from a girl who knows a guy who has a friend that said that Ted Kupfer used to talk about going out with little boys back in 1976?
It’s true. I swear.
Isn’t it time for Ted to fess up, face the music and resign from public life now?
The last vestige of NRO’s conservatism finally falls. They are complete Uni-party and are happy to participate in the political assassination of a good man. They deserve to go under.
Until Bannon and conservatives learn how to play dirty too,
these GOPe dirty tricks will continue.
That is so serious we have to assume that Ted should withdraw from public life and National Review should cut him loose. Its the seriousness of the charge that mandates it.
Mo Brooks is arguably a better candidate to Get Ditch!, but the peeps of Ala. disagreed.
I’m guessing Bannon may be working on his bag of dirty tricks for McConnell right about now.
Fake news all the way!
Fails to mention a handwriting expert has declared the yearbook notes are forgeries. Fails to mention the accuser’s dates don’t match up with Moore’s days in law school, etc.
Well gosh, if the national review says so.
NRO’s “basic standards of a civilized society” is code for resisting the movement of the mighty American middle class toward communism.
Ted has said nothing to date to make me believe he didn’t do what he’s accused of- He should resign immediately- so that he doesn’t further tarnish NR
We need lie-detector tests for Moore and his accusers.
You would think he had been arrested for sexual misconduct the way this is being portrayed! All it takes is for someone to accuse you of a horrible deed and you must resign for some reason?!?!? This is crazy. Until the guy is arrested and brought to court, shove it!
“National Review Institute”
That’s says eGOP liberals like nothing else.
NR is a joke.
Isnt it amazing that, even were the story true - even IF it were true - the FACT that these things happened 40 YEARS AGO are of no consequence? Of no consequence to certain individuals?
Were right back to The Swamps tactics used against Trump, arent we?
A man changes, he finds The Lord, he turns his back to sinful ways, marries, grows in Faith, spends THE REST OF HIS LIFE doing The Lords work.
Not one trollop has come forth to say they were molested by Moore last week, or last year, or a few years ago.
Yet, we are told to judge him by sins of the past.
This makes him tainted goods? Unfit for the Senate?
Well, Ill admit, by the current standards of the Senate, a Godly man is certainly unfit. Thats why they are Hellbent (word chosen properly) to destroy him.
Did you hear about what Ted Kupfer does with underage female alpacas? Some say it’s pretty shocking!!!
The notion that one would find any "basic standards of a civilized society" in the U.S. Senate is a joke.
What makes the whole Roy Moore saga so pathetic is that he'd be more suited to a seat in Congress if the allegations against him were TRUE.
Or as Rush Limbaugh pointed out the car that would have allowed the driver to lock her in from his side did not exist in 1977.
