GOOD NEWS: Roy Moore is no longer chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court. BAD NEWS: He resigned because A) he had been suspended for the rest of his term on the court anyway, and term limits prohibit him from running again, and also B) he is running for Jeff Sessions’s old Senate seat, which is currently occupied by a man named Luther Strange:

Suspended Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore today announced he is running for the United States Senate.

“I’ll stand for the rights and liberties of the people” if elected, Moore said to reporters gathered at the State Capitol.

“We can make America great again, we’ve got to make America good again,” Moore said.


You’ll remember Moore was suspended for a whole bunch of ethics violations relating to his deeply held religious belief that God Hates Fags. Back before the United States Supreme Court decided to throat-cram all of America with marriage equality, a nice federal judge in Alabama named Callie V.S. Granade ruled that Alabama’s gay marriage ban was unconstitutional. Moore, of course, was determined that her ruling would not stand, because what is she, a federal judge or something? Yes, she is!

Nonetheless, Moore ordered Alabama’s probate judges to ignore Granade’s ruling, and stated in no uncertain terms that if/when the Supreme Court ruled for marriage equality, he would appeal that ruling directly to God. Unfortunately God failed to grant cert. :(

Then, in January of 2016, months after the Supreme Court made its ruling, Moore wrote another little order that said SCOTUS’s ruling was causing “confusion and uncertainty” among Alabammy judges, because they weren’t sure whether they were supposed to obey SCOTUS or Roy Moore AKA “God.” He assured those judges that he was still the supreme boss of marriage, and that gays were still gross, so please do not issue gay marriage licenses.

So, as we noted, he got suspended, even though he was being persecuted by the heathen homosexuals and also the transgenders, which hurt his feelings very much. As notes, just last week the Alabama Supreme Court upheld his suspension, despite his insistence that he remains chief justice and and also God’s chosen son.

Moore, of course, is also the famous Ten Commandments judge, who first lost his position as chief justice way back in 2003 because God wouldn’t allow him to remove a giant Ten Commandments monument from state government property.

If he manages to get the Republican nomination and wins the seat, he will be very, very bad at Senate.

    “I’ll stand for the rights and liberties of the people” if elected, Moore said to reporters gathered at the State Capitol.

    But you’ve opposed the rights an the liberties of the people throughout your entire career; and fuck, you’re running as a far-right republican, part of the party that hates and wants to destroy human rights and civil liberties.

      Honestly, he barely won the vote for Chief Justice, and it was at the height of Tea Party mania with his opponent clearly a commie socialist pinko. Of course, we also have a woman named Twinkle who will be running for governor and in the last year the heads of our executive, legislative, and judicial branches have all been removed from office, so there’s just no telling.

      I have this bigoted Northern rationalist opinion of the Alabama electorate, I’ll admit it. Still, this guy is such a craven fuckwad, I find myself wondering if his occupancy of the Republican side of the ticket might possibly — just possibly — enable someone of the Democratic persuasion (as defined in Alabama, yes, yes, I know it would not be the kind of candidate who would get elected in, say, Massachusetts) to beat his sorry ignorant ass in a run for the Senate? Anyway, it’s pretty to think so.

    I smell the possibility of an objection to Moore’s taking the oath of office if he wins. He’s pretty much “God is in charge of the government,” so to swear (or affirm) that he will “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic” would be at odds with his view of the Big Guy in the Sky. Add in a history of telling state officials to ignore the Supreme Court and you’ve got yourself a popcorn-worthy dust-up when he shows up in the Senate chamber.

      Well, we live in a society where a lot of rich investment bankers can fuck up the entire planet’s economy, and not only do they not go to jail, but they get bail-outs and bonuses.

It all makes no sense at all.

There’s a socio-political statement in there somewhere, but it’s time for bed and I’m too tired to think it through.

          • Zyxomma

            My winter boots (shearling lined and waterproof) were made in Canada. They just got through their 12th winter, although to be fair, I did get them re-soled here in NY two years ago. They have no straps, just laces.

          • Angela Ruzzo

            Canada makes good stuff. I went out to buy a wood double bed frame 11 ago and discovered that no American bed manufacturer makes double bed frames anymore – they are all Queen or King. The only double bed frame I could get was made in Canada, and I had to order it from a catalog. It is an excellent bed and far better made than the ones I saw in local stores. And I’d like to know why there is a much greater range and variety of kitchen appliances in Canada and the UK and Europe than I can get in the US. This is bizarre, because they are all made by the same companies, yet the variety of styles available in the US is very limited. The best examples are refrigerators and cooktops. I needed a fridge to fit in a space that was 34″ wide and 69″ tall, and I could find exactly 4 styles to choose from in American stores that would fit. Then I looked on a UK site and found 15, but I can’t buy any of them. It’s insane. When I needed a 24″ gas cooktop, I had to buy one in Canada.

        Yes, I agree. Gay-hater? Weakling? The only “fear” they have is about their own masculinity, so it really should be Hominophobia (closely related to Humminaphobia, fear of the Honeymooners).

    Homophobic men make me sick to my stomach. Men are always telling me

    harassing them and making unwelcome advances to them for 10,000 years.
    And when we complain about it, they tell us it’s our own fault. They can dish it out, but they can’t take it.

    • CatCafe #ShePurrsisted

      That’s why they’re homophobic. That’s exactly why they’re homophobic. They are horrified at the idea of someone treating them the way they treat women. The other reason is when they’re suppressing their own gayness, i.e., making “a choice” to lead “a straight lifestyle”–that’s why they have the absurd nomenclature of calling gayness a choice, or a lifestyle. It’s all about fear and hate and weakness.

        This sounds contradictory, but I believe that gay sex is a naturally occurring desire among straight men. Worshipping each other’s masculinity is seen every day in professional sports. I am not talking about bisexuality where an emotional attraction of wanting to have a relationship with another man is involved. Quick, anonymous sex between straight men is WAY more common than most people think…or admit as the case may be. The problem is that due to society’s intolerance that desire scares the hell out of most guys.

        • Opalescent Riddles

          I don’t know if this is true. However, I also do not believe that there is one type of man that homosexual men would all find attractive any more than I believe that there is one type of man that heterosexual women would all find attractive.

          Of course it is. But you say “due to society’s intolerance” when it is “due to homophobes’ intolerance.” I’m fine with it, so are you, and so are most decent people. It’s not “society,” it’s the gay-haters. The gay-haters who are making a choice to suppress their natural inclinations, then become furious at those who don’t, or, are using gay-hate as a “cover,” are the ones who are the problem, not society. The only thing I will say is that there are gay-haters who have the misfortune to be raised in some vile church, absorb the teaching, and think themselves to be “abominations,” and I feel terribly sorry for them. Again, though, it is the church, which itself is led by gay-haters (who themselves are often closet gays), who is it at fault in those cases.

        that’s one heck of a litter box for an emu

        • Jerry Noneofyourbizz

          Actually, the whole park is a litter box for kangaroos. You haven’t lived till you’ve had to scrape kangaroo shit out of the tread of your shoes. And having a joey eat right of your hand is pretty cool, as well!

          • Goposaur

            sounds lovely. if you’re into dropbears, flying box jellyfish, poisonous snakes that go after your dingus, and lord knows what else that you cover up.

            I like them utes, and I figure I’m part Bogan, so, what the heck… let’s throw a party!

      • Goposaur

        meant to say, an Emu is gonna need a heck of a litterbox. I mean, I used to have a St.Bernard, and his litterbox was 5 acres of woods. 30, if you count my indignant neighbors.

  • Jukesgrrl

    Look at that face. Surely some kind of sex crime can be dug up against this guy. Judging from the exploits of their recently renounced governor, Alabamas aren’t quite as forgiving of pussy-grabbing as some other voters.

    • redblack

      sex crime, yeah. if not by him then certainly by his parents during his conception.

  • Jerry Noneofyourbizz

    Make America good again? Again? When was that exactly? I would like to know at what point in time America became no longer good. One more thing, why do you hate America?

  • pgjack

    “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.” That seems pretty unambiguous to me and ‘Bama dung spewer sure seems intent on restricting homosexuals’ right to pursue happiness. Conservative christians are America’s Taliban. All religion is individual interpretation. Everyone who reads any “holy” book interprets it differently than every other person who reads that same book.

    • Jerry Noneofyourbizz

      And the Bible was written by God so it is infallible. Which is why there are so many different versions of it?

  • miss_grundy

    And there are very stupid people in Alabama who would vote for this putz.

    • Jerry Noneofyourbizz

      Well, he’s running for Sessions old seat so nothing new here!

      • Mehmeisterjr

        Sessions? The Russian asset Sessions?

    • mrpuma2u

      Sadly, many southern voters are one issue voters, and since this guy is pro-life and pro-gunz, that will take care of most of the reactionary honkeys he needs to win.

  • Panika MCD

    maybe he would like to run for one of those openings at FOX instead! I hear there are a lot of those that recently became open. but he needs to be reminded about how there is a line between verbal sexual harassment and waking people up in the middle of the night about that falafel thing.

  • (((fka_donnie_d)))

    I hate to sound like an upper-class British twit, but last names like Sessions and Strange make me think that these people come from families that haven’t had last names for very long.

    • Zyxomma

      Tell that to Benedict Cumberbatch, who kept insisting that he was not Mr. Strange, but DOCTOR Strange. Horrible soundtrack ruined what could have been a fun movie.

      • (((fka_donnie_d)))

        I had no problem with the soundtrack, and I thought it was absolutely fucking hysterical, the best one next to ant man with the greatest ending of all time. Even the first avengers was not quite as good, I think. But, I am a massive cumberbatch fan, so there’s that.

        • Zyxomma

          I’m an unrepentant Cumberbitch; I adore him. I loved the look of the film, and since I’m also a fan of Mads Mikkelsen, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Tilda Swinton, I thought I’d really enjoy it. Would have, too, had it not been for the music and sound effects.

      • (((fka_donnie_d)))

        Unless you mean sfx, which were obviously intended for 5.1 surround.

        • Zyxomma

          Nope. I abhor having my eardrums pummeled, and by music that’s so bad it doesn’t even approach mediocrity. Awful. Then again, I don’t like being told what to feel with musical cues. It’s why I won’t go to a theatre to see Spielberg. My ears are not garbage cans. The worst offenders are John Williams and Danny Elfman, and the music for Dr. Strange was horribly Elfmanic.

    • Wellstone En Resistencia, Coño

      This is Alabama. There’s very little introduction of new last names into their family trees. We’re not joking when we call them sister-fucking rednecks: they actually are.

    • Dudleydidwrong

      All were named “Oog” until they discovered they needed different last names so they could get government benefits. Then it was whatever they could spell.

  • BrendaKay

    This. is. brilliant. “Unfortunately God failed to grant cert. :(“

  • thixotropic jerk

    When do all the stoopid people get to have their own planet to relocate to? Is there a dumbo-rapture coming for fine folks like Moore? These questions do not keep me up at night and neither do the crazy answers I come up with.

  • Wellstone En Resistencia, Coño

    Auburn University told Richard Spencer to go speak somewhere else. It’s not all bad in Alabama.

    • Mike Steele

      Just mostly bad. Moore or Strange? Howzabout hemlock? Are there ANY viable (D)s down there?

  • Incoming “/FFS” Ham

    Hows about we “Make America Not Be The Laughingstock Of The World?”

    • Too late.

      • Pierre_de_Fermat

        Yeah, I think that ship has sailed. Maybe we can recover some of what was lost by replacing as many of the nuts as we can in 2018 …

        • Pierre, you may not send them here. 🇦🇺

          I hear that we may be taking more refugees tho, they are much nicer than republicans or fascist nazi wannabes.

          Anyhoo, we’re still laughing 😂

          Not at Americans so much as the current administration.

          Most normal people here feel sorry for you guys. 🙁

  • Raan

    So, you know how Democrats and other assorted liberals (i.e. most of us) are really angry over The Evil One and the idiotic bullshit he’s doing? And how a lot of people oppose his policies and are channeling their anger into activism? And how President Baby probably isn’t going to stop doing and saying dumb shit in the, what, about a year and a half until the midterms?

    I guess what I’m saying is, this race might be fun.

  • Skaarphy

    Germany here. Wouldn’t that be a solution: Same-sex marriages by state is the universal law, same-sex marriages by church is up to the respective churches?

    That way the only people who would suffer were same-sex couples who want to get married by church but belong to one that doesn’t allow it. They would then have to either look for another church or not get married.
    Everybody else should be happy.

    Or is there something I’m missing?

    • rick

      America here, gays can be married wherever they damn well please…because America.

      • Magyar Has Had It With Trump

        We can’t, and most of us are OK with that. It matters little to me that I can’t get married in a Catholic church (my childhood denomination) or a conservative synagogue (my hubby’s). Most of us are not/never were seeking approval from religious organizations, we demanded equal treatment under the law.

    • Dudleydidwrong

      Basically, Skaarphy, that’s what the situation is: gay marriage is legal but individual denominations and clergy can choose not to perform such marriages. The issue with pseudo-judge/jury/executioner Roy Moore is that he decreed from Mt. Sinai that no marriages of gay-type folks would occur in his world.

    • Ah, but people like Moore believe that secular Law is secondary to the “Laws” of his particular twisted Christian sect, and that the religious tenets he follows should be imposed on the country (and world) at large, in a Christian-ruled Dominion.

      In their minds, if the State affirms marriages other than those *they* believe valid, then it somehow weakens the validity of *their* marriages.

  • rick

    With Trump and his Alt-Right posse in cabinet positions, idiots like Roy Moore think the Alt-Right are so in vague, there’s an actual mandate for their shit-way of thinking.

  • William Cook

    I try to keep an open mind about the American South, but Alabama conforms to stereotypes pretty closely doesn’t it?

    • Joseph Stans

      Why should I open my mind to accommodate nasty backward low dull people who begin closing their mind about five years old and continue until it snaps shut and locks. There are not many places in the world with fewer redeeming qualities than Alabama.

      • ThaagNasty

        Alabamans are like abuse victims who left strict but loving parents to run off with some asshole: they will keep going back to their abusers until they reach that breaking point when they overcome their fear of what their authority figures would do if they didn’t capitulate.

  • mardam422

    “We can make America great again, we’ve got to make America good again,” Moore said.
    Good AND great?? All at once????

    • Moore (and too many others) likely see that as an insightful comment, addressing two different things.

      “Greatness” has to do with secular dominance in the world — authoritarian power and success.

      The “good” is about imposing on the country and world the hateful Christian “morality” in which he believes.

  • Trish62

    I live a few miles away from Moore’s home town. I have seen him in local restaurants with his entourage. He is a repellent individual that if you shook his hand you would subconsciously wipe the karmic slime off your skin.

    He is creepy, totally in love with himself (I used to think it was a summer thing) and believes that the small little group of fanboi’s he has represent the desires of everyone in the state of Alabama.

    That’s not saying that he doesn’t have a following; Alabama seems to have large numbers of morons who will fall for anyone who makes just the right kind of noises that appeal to their intolerant dark hearts.

  • Roy Moore, as with others who agree with his twisted views, do and say evil in the name of God. What a coincidence that they are able to use the Bible to “justify” their hate.

  • Jack Rogue Tenhet

    Okay, this I can speak on with personal authority. Roy Moore is, in fact, an evil bastard. I’d dealt with his foul stink since 2002 when he issued the following ruling in February of that year (Citations follow actual ruling)

    “Homosexual behavior is a ground for divorce, an act of sexual misconduct punishable as a crime in Alabama, a crime against nature, an inherent evil, and an act so heinous that it defies one’s ability to describe it. That is enough under the law to allow a court to consider such activity harmful to a child. To declare that homosexuality is harmful is not to make new law but to reaffirm the old; to say that it is not harmful is to experiment with people’s lives, particularly the lives of children.”

    He issued this ruling as a reason for denying custody to a mother based on her sexuality alone, despite the allegations of abuse by her ex husband. He based his denial of custody based solely on the woman’s homosexuality.

    Later, he had a two and a half ton stone monument installed in the State Capitol rotunda, in violation of ever law and even common sense of reason.

    He is, in fact, evil. He is dangerous and cannot be taken lightly.

    • ThaagNasty

      I concur. I live in that city.

  • Foundryman

    He looks better with his white pointed hood on.

    • sgt. jmk of the résistance

      He does look uncomfortable without it.

  • Upright Ape

    There’s still room at that “farm upstate” for Ol’ Roy, along with O’Reilly, Ailes, hopefully Anthony Wiener, and now Jesse Watters, who recently fantasized on Fox about Ivanka Trump performing felatio upon him and is now “taking a vacation with his family”. I guess all those racist Water’s World segments didn’t count as much as the royal daughter.

  • Bitter Scribe

    I’m just amazed Judge Cracker has restrained himself from denouncing interracial marriage. You know he wants to.

  • Rex Thorne

    What would crazy bigot who tries to push his absurd superstitions on others know about making American great or good.

  • Ray in VT

    Come on guys. Give the man a break. Don’t you know how hard it was to be a white, male, conservative, anti-gay nutjob from January 2009 to January 2017? They were as persecuted by Obama as the rich people were.

  • sgt. jmk of the résistance

    Roy Moore is one of the things I point to when someone accuses me of only hating Alabama because of college football.

  • ThaagNasty

    He tried to run for governor about 11ish years ago. Didn’t make it past the primaries.

  • Joseph Stans

    I don’t think we should over think this. They are just stupid and and have no moral or ethical rudder. The philosophy they would use for guidance was shabby 2000 years ago and it has not any better today. The best among them are little more than junk yard dogs.
