David French of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America cheer House Republicans for listening to the backlash and reinstating the adoption tax credit into their tax reform bill. They also discuss the allegations of sexual misconduct reported by the Washington Post about GOP Alabama U.S. Senate nominee Roy Moore, and while debate over the veracity of the accusations continues, they are appalled at the number of Republican officials in Alabama who don’t see a problem even if the stories are true. And they groan as Bowe Bergdahl may end up getting hundreds of thousands of dollars in back pay from his time in captivity after deserting his unit and misbehaving before the enemy.

    Now, boys, get your terms correct in the Moore story. It’s not pedophilia. It’s probably ephebophilia, although one might argue the most troublesome charges amount to hebephilia. Then again, those Southern girls develop early, so she might have seemed like bait for an ephebophiliac. Still bad news if true.

    I hope that is a joke.

    You got to understand this is a new thing for the GOP. When was the last time they had a sex scandal involving women?
