Alabama GOP Senate candidate and former Judge Roy Moore has issued a response to an article in the Washington Post, accusing him of having sexual contact with a then-14-year-old girl, 38 years ago when he was 32. The woman never filed a police report or made any public accusations against Moore in any of his previous campaigns. The paper cited claims by other women that Moore asked them out or kissed them back in the 1970s when they were age 16 to 18, but the age of consent was 16. Moore flatly denies the Washington Post article, calling it “completely false and a desperate political attack.” If so, it would not be the first time WaPo has published false or misleading hit pieces on Moore.

McCain response ironic given...

By Mike Huckabee

While most leading Republicans were calling on Roy Moore to quit the Alabama Senate race if a 39-year-old underage sex allegation against him is true, there was a notable exception. Sen. John McCain didn’t accord Moore the presumption of innocence, and instead called for him to withdraw immediately. That’s ironic in light of the fact that during the 2008 GOP Presidential primaries, both the New York Times and Washington Post blindsided his campaign with pieces implying an improper relationship between McCain and a female lobbyist. His staff’s reaction was to blast the papers and their reporting as “gutter politics” and a “hit-and-run smear campaign” that “reads like a tabloid gossip sheet.” The papers faced a backlash over the stories, which blew over and McCain went on to win the nomination.

Also worth noting: How many Senate leaders of either party are calling on Robert Menendez to resign before the jury finishes deliberating on his current federal corruption trial?


A closer look at the poll data

By Mike Huckabee

The media love to trumpet President Trump’s low approval rating (37% in a new Reuters/IPSOS poll). And why not? They must think to themselves, “Mission accomplished!” But not so fast. You’d think they might have learned a lesson from the way they were fooled by 2016 polls that showed Hillary with a 11-point lead and a 92% chance of winning. But that would require humility and self-examination. So no wonder they’re also overlooking some key details of this poll.

For instance: Among likely voters, the only ones whose opinions count at reelection time, Trump’s approval rating is 44%. Still a bit low, but higher than Congress or most potential challengers. Among likely Republican voters, Trump’s approval is at 80%. And as former Clinton pollster Mark Penn noted last month, among issues voters say matter the most to them, Trump is doing fine. He’s at 53% approval for the economy and fighting terrorism and 60% for his hurricane response.


California NAACP attacking national anthem

By Mike Huckabee

Latest dispatch from the frontiers of Searching For Things To Be Offended By With A Microscope: The California NAACP is demanding that America change the National Anthem because the third verse contains a reference to slavery. The line is “no refuge could save the hireling and slave from the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave.” It’s not even clear what composer Francis Scott Key was referring to, but some interpret it to mean rejoicing over the deaths of slaves fighting against the Americans. Others say it refers to Americans striving to be free of the king, or to American sailors forced into servitude by the British. But that single negative, subjective interpretation of one phrase from a verse nobody ever sings is supposed to be reason enough to declare the National Anthem racist and change it.

Tell you what, let’s make a deal: we’ll agree to change the National Anthem if everyone who’s demanding it can, without looking at their notes, actually sing the third verse of the National Anthem. Almost makes me wish I were a betting man so I could lay down some cash on how far into the first line they’d be able to get.

Brian Williams is worried

By Mike Huckabee

Brian Williams is worried that President Trump’s speech warning Kim Jong Un against nuclear aggression might scare North Korean children. Because North Koreans get to see so much unfiltered TV from the outside world. If they saw Trump’s speech at all, chances are that CGI horns were painted on him to make him look scarier.


Senate tax plan

Senate Republicans released their version of a tax reform bill, and it’s getting criticized for doing far too little (although I assume Democratic leaders will claim it will bring about Armageddon.) Some of the details are at the link. Remember, though, that this is just their version that would have to be reconciled with the House’s. I’d warn them, though: they’d better come up with a compromise bill that actually has some teeth in it if they don’t want to have their own teeth knocked out by voters next November. This could be their last chance to show they’re capable of keeping any campaign promise, and their constituents’ patience is now as thin as the toilet paper at a one-star motel.
