The Left-Cheek Ass Clown for November, 2017

It's time once again to skim the scum from the top of the swirling cesspool of ass-clownery!

There are, as usual, plenty of candidates, ranging from politicians to quasi-religious figures to jurists. And sometimes, a candidate straddles all of those groups, as our dishonoree does today.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Dear Readers, I give you

The Left-Cheek Ass Clown for November, 2017

Judge Roy Moore

Roy Moore was recently chosen as the Republican candidate to run for the Alabama Senate seat vacated by Jeff Sessions when Sessions was appointed Attorney General.  Moore was an odd choice, having been removed from his seat as Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court not once, but twice - in 2003 for refusing to remove a monument of the Ten Commandments he'd commissioned from the Alabama Judicial Building, despite orders to do so by a federal court, and again in 2016 (after being reelected to the position in 2013), for directing probate judges to continue to enforce the state's ban on same-sex marriage despite the fact that this had been deemed unconstitutional. He is known for his uncompromising anti-homosexual, anti-Muslim, and far-right positions, for his insistence that public policy should be based on Christian beliefs, and his ties to neo-Confederate and white nationalist groups.

As if all those things weren't enough, Moore has now been accused by numerous women of inappropriate sexual contact with them when they were teenagers and he was in his 30s. While none of the women said that Moore forced them into any sort of relationship or sexual contact, they all accused him of inappropriate conduct with them when they were minors*. One of the women said Moore had threatened her if she reported his actions, telling her "You're just a child ... I am the district attorney of Etowah County and if you tell anyone about this, no one will ever believe you."

We didn't have enough bizarre and useless people in Congress already.

For his extremist views, religious bigotry, willingness to ignore the Constitution, and inappropriate sexual behavior, Roy Moore is named as our Left-Cheek Ass Clown for November, 2017.

Have a good day. More thoughts tomorrow, when Cartoon Saturday returns.


* Even considering that this took place in Alabama, where the age of sexual consent is 16.
