This from John Podhoretz is just one of many similar comments out there:
Similarly, if you believe America has rotted away morally, the idea you’d hand enormous political power to a morally rotted person like Roy Moore reveals your own spiritual and moral rot.
What is wrong with simply saying “I disagree with your decision to vote for Roy Moore?”
Alabama voters are between a rock and a hard place. It’s not entirely their fault since Moore’s peccadilloes weren’t known until it was too late to take him off the ballot. The “establishment” offering, Luther Strange, was scandal-tainted himself.
It is true that Moore’s refusal to step down does not speak well of his character either.
But if you vote for Roy Moore, do you become him? If you vote for Doug Jones, do you become an abortion-promoting leftist?
If character should always trump political considerations, what ‘s the right choice if it were Moore versus a scandal-free Nazi?
Alabama voters have a choice between a predator and a progressive. Please, cut them some slack.
