Skip to comments.Roy Moore's Alabama
Posted on 12/10/2017 2:42:14 PM PST by Rummyfan
ARLEY, Ala. I recently drove the back roads from Birmingham for over two hours before I finally found a sign for Roy Moore, the Republican candidate for the United States Senate, outside the Arley Coffee Shop. A retired coal miner who frequents what the cashier called the liars table put it to me in the familiar Winston County way. The women, he said of Mr. Moores accusers, were lying to make him look like a sexual predator. Groping, he added, used to be all right anyway.
The Free State of Winston is Alabamas most distinctive political culture, and now it may be the center of Americas current political convulsion. Winstonians tend to go to one side or another in a big way, and they dont care what the rest of the world thinks. According to one historical account, the residents voted 515 to 128 for an antebellum legislator who promised to oppose the Ordinance of Secession that took Alabama out of the Union in 1861. Today they believe President Trump is an untarnished Republican savior and are cheering his endorsement of Mr. Moore.

Biased much there Howell?
Wasn't Raines the editor when Jayson Blair was filing his phony news reports? From his apartment in Brooklyn?!
What did Dingy Ditch (he more and more reminds me of Hairy) do to get discharged early from the Army?
How does live with this level of hate in their hardened hearts???
willing now to send a plausibly accused pedophile to the Senate rather than a Democrat.
Remember when Howell said Bill Clintons character didnt matter? Yea, me too.
@$$hole. Did he “get his immunizations” before he came?
Translation: I got hopelessly lost.
Let's tell the truth...
“willing now to send a falsely accused pedophile to the Senate rather than a baby-killer.”
NYT is dreaming of a world where people see Republicans as “hateful bigots,” have Trump Remorse, and will overthrow the Republicans as soon as they can get to a voting booth.
They’ve been dreaming that for a couple of years now.
I understand Soros is giving away a week long cruise in the Caribbean to the news media puke who writes the most negative story about Moore.
This guy has a chance for the prize.
Yes, Howell Raines was/is one of the biggest turds in MSM history. He protected Jayson Blair until the scandal grew too large to resist. Howell Raines represents some of the worst of the liberal MSM.
With manufactured evidence, impossible timelines, and non-corroborated stories...
Whatever you say.
14 years old makes a “pedophile?” Puh-lease. Frank Luntz’ panel included women who said they themselves dated 30 year olds at age 15, and that two grandmas were married at 14. The Mexican age of consent is TWELVE and you don’t see the NYTimes wailing about it.
This guy is full of BS!!!
I grew up in Winston County (in the Haleyville/Lynn/Double Springs area), and this writer is nothing more than yet another liberal hack trying to “explain” how backwards the Rednecks in Alabama are if they elect Roy Moore.
According to my relatives back home (I no longer live there due to military duties), Moore will win in a landslide.
No one, other than the folks paid for by out of state Democrats, believe the crap published by the WAPO, etc.
I think it was Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton who said something like “No more trial by newspaper!”. MAGA, Go Moore, Go Trump!!!
Conservatives have long learned that only ‘Rats can advertise virtue signaling without receiving the violins of graffiti or worse.
Mad Mo’ “married” even younger I’m told...
And in Clinton's case, it was a little more concrete than "plausibly accused", e.g. forensic evidence in the form of a little blue dress.
I’ve heard some things, along the lines of people in Alabama are really frustrated that the media in the New York/Washington axis, are trying to tell Alabamans how to vote.
I’ve also heard lots of resentment in Alabama against circus performer Gloria Allred strutting in and stirring the pot.
It’s as if a key issue in this campaign has become the issue of outside liberals condescendingly trying to affect the outcome of this election.
Doug Jones ads are running every other commercial break now. I got so tired of them the Tab has been on AHC for the last week.
Massive over saturation with lie filled content is pushing Jones farther and farther behind.
Doug Jones ads are running every other commercial break now.
I hope they are spending millions on this.
