Again, I am not making any claims that Moore is innocent, or guilty. I am observing these goings-on from afar and getting quite a kick out of it. A radio host is issuing an ultimatum to a senatorial candidate. That’s pretty ballsy.
In the closing segment of Tuesday evening’s ‘Hannity” show, the host played clips from his afternoon radio show in which he asked the Alabama Republican numerous times whether he had, as a man in his 30s, engaged in sexual misconduct against teenagers.
Mr. Moore gave several non-definitive denials, including that he dated no girl without her mother’s permission and that dating teens wasn’t his usual practice. Those vaguenesses caused Mr. Hannity to lower the boom Tuesday evening.
What’s vague about what Moore said? Is it that he’s talking about dating while Hannity is talking about sexual misconduct?
Maybe Moore is being Clintonesque and answering a question that’s never been asked?
“For me, the judge has 24 hours. You must immediately and fully come up with a satisfactory explanation for your inconsistencies… You must remove any doubt,” he said.
“If you can’t do this, then Judge Moore needs to get out of this race,” Mr. Hannity concluded.
Admittedly, I’m not going over this with a fine-tooth comb, so if someone can list the inconsistencies in Moore’s story that would be swell.
