      Never Negate Democrats.

    The former intel chiefs have better deception techniques than their former agents. I spy with my little eye a political hack.

      Conversely, when Robert Gates and Leon Panetta brutally criticised Pres. Obama in their books, they were roundly challenged by the media during their book promotions, and then were virtually absent from tv commentary until the advent of Pres. Trump.

      • Larry Kelly

        Obama really was a crappy President.

        • homemaker

          That’s putting it mildly!

      Good read. Thanks.

    • homemaker

      Thanks for the link. There’s some funny business with this whole story and it’s not just Moore’s funny/disgusting business.

  • FNC primetime shows were a bit down overall Monday night, but the drop from 9pm to 10pm was not good for Laura (and did no favors for Shannon at 11pm who had little chance of besting Lyin’ Brian with the anemic handoff from 10pm).

    • Minnesota Nice

      Drudge notes Maddow is back to #1. They did that the last time she was a few weeks ago from a Friday show. I wonder if there is some motive to encourage readers to watch Hannity or Fox?

      • Mitch Alan

        I think conservatives are tired of all this b.s. about Moore in Alabama, tuned out.

    • Mitch Alan

      It’s all Laura’s fault. Shandon Bream has the most electric personality in all of cable news!

    Hannity lowers the boom on Roy Moore. Credit to Sean…..he’s gonna get some blow back, but I think he did the right thing.

    Basically prove your innocence or drop out. The final straw for Hannity was the yearbook signing proving he knew the girl despite saying he did not.

    • Cecelia

      There’s much to question about Roy Moore, but not remembering that you had met someone 30-something years ago and had signed their yearbook is plausible.

      • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

        Fun fact: Roy Moore was a Democrat when all this was supposedly going on. Had he not changed parties, he’d be hailed as a statesman.

      • J.J.

        Respectfully disagree. How many yearbooks did you sign after high school? The number is zero for probably 99.9% of adults that aren’t school teachers. And why is a 32 yr old even signing the yearbook of a 16 yr old.

        • Cecelia

          How many autographs have I signed as a skyrocketing personality burgeoning on the national stage?

          How many locals event programs, restaurant menus, polaroids, etc?

          None. So yeah, I might…might…remember. A famous local pol. Probably not.

          • J.J.

            “To a sweeter more beautiful girl I could not say, ‘Merry Christmas.’ Love, Roy Moore”

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            Bill Clinton would’ve written, “I’d put some ice on that.”

          • Cecelia

            Sounds like every southern boy.

        • Mitch Alan

          So what? Is signing a teenage girl’s yearbook the same thing as having intercourse? What is the big deal?

  • Cecelia

    The MSM has to do conservative cable hosts exactly as they do with conservative politicians— get them out of the way via latching onto scandals, rather than demolishing them in ratings or elections.
