#RoyMoore controversy highlights just how pathetic #Republicans really are

Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore is either a major league pervert, or a guy getting tooled by the feckless Republican Party.

Establishment Republicans expressed alarm. “If these allegations are true, he must step aside,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said in a formal statement on behalf of all Republican senators. A host of his members made similar comments, including Jeff Flake, David Perdue, John Thune, Cory Gardner and Pat Toomey. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., was unequivocal:

McCain tweeted: “The allegations against Roy Moore are deeply disturbing and disqualifying. He should immediately step aside and allow the people of Alabama to elect a candidate they can be proud of.”

Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, lost a Republican primary in 2010 but stayed in the Senate by waging a write-in campaign against the GOP nominee. She publicly urged appointed Sen. Luther Strange, who lost to Moore in the September primary, to try repeating that feat.

McCain, McConnell, and Murkowski…three people we’d never recommend you leave your children alone with.
