Judge Roy Moore Rides Again

Judge Roy Moore is running for his old seat on the Alabama Supreme Court and won the Republican nomination for that seat on Tuesday. And he had an interesting way of getting attention on election day.

Former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore is a step closer to getting his old job back after he received a little more that 50 percent of the vote to win the Republican nomination, according to unofficial results showed Wednesday.

After a night of uncertainty, Moore had 50.37 percent, more than the 50 percent plus one vote that he needed to avoid a runoff with either of his challengers, former Attorney General Charlie Graddick or current Chief Justice Chuck Malone.

He rode his horse to the polling place, which is appropriate to the 1840s, the decade to which he would like to return America. And he’s going to win in November, of course. Yes, Alabama just reelected a man who once wrote in a legal opinion that the state should put gay people to death. Which means they don’t have that far to go to return to the 1840s.

    Or even further back in time?

    Were the 1840’s really that bad? Did they really punish sodomy with death back then even?

    He is? Really?

    I guess on the good side so (now) will Barack Obama! ;-)

    Right?

    Posted too soon.

    I have to sadly agree with a part of the comment on that article by Lorreta Nall:

    This would all be one he!! of a lot funnier if I were not a resident of this unfortunate state. We deserve our reputation as ignorant, inbred, illiterate, bible thumpers. We earned the dam thing, wouldn’t you say?

    He was removed once for being a dickhead by the Alabama Court of the Judiciary, couldn’t they turn around and do it again?

    “No, we meant it. Really.”

    When I saw that teaser about what he’d done on election, I clicked on Read More and waited the .0003 seconds for the page to load with baited breath for his latest antic.

    That’s it? It was just him winning office. Unless you meant the horse, but that’s not really up to his usual standards of crazy and bigoted.

    So disappointed.

    With respect to Roy Moore’s opponent having been suspended from the bar – is this another “vote for the crook, it’s important” case?

  7. Aquaria says

    Dingo, dingo, dingo….

    Llewelly was referring to a famous election held in Louisiana for the governorship with known crook Edwin “I can’t lose unless I’m caught in bed with a dead girl or live boy” Edwards, vs KKK Grand Wizard David Duke.

    The bumper stickers that year were…fascinating, in a macabre sort of way. One of them was “Vote for the crook/It matters.” Another was “Better a lizard than a wizard.”

    Why is he eligible for that position at all? Which qualifications does Alabama require?
