Grounds for insanity

November 13, 2017

Judge Roy Moore went on Sean Hannity’s radio show, where he adamantly denied ever knowing the woman who made the charge against him and denounced it as a false partisan hit job.

However, some of Moore’s defenders felt he made a mistake in agreeing to the interview because his lawyerly claim that he “generally” didn’t date teenagers in his 30s damaged his credibility. Hannity got praise even from his usual critics for his tough line of questioning.

However this eventually shakes out, it’s always a bad idea for commercial enterprises to take political stands. The coffee maker company Keurig pulled its ads from Sean Hannity’s show because he interviewed Roy Moore. Keurig’s actions inspired Moore supporters to post videos of them smashing their Keurig coffee makers.

What’s the upshot? Keurig lost a lot of customers for seemingly attacking due process and the practice of journalism, while thousands of Republicans now need to buy new coffeemakers. This is why mixing politics with business is generally considered grounds for insanity.

    Being a conservative, I was predisposed to side with Judge Roy Moore, but after listening to his poor resposes, his not remembering if he dated young girls when he was in his thirties, made me realize the truth about him. We do not forget when we do things outside the norm.

    Thank you for the news letter. It is refreshing to have a source of news I can trust as truth!! My question: I would like an App for members of the House and another for members on the Senate that I can refer to see how every member votes on legislation and their rationale for their vote. It is very difficult to know The Swamp members and I want to know more about the individuals and not the Party affiliation and stance. Thank You and may God continue his blessings on you , your daughter and family.
