    Sean Hannity ready to give up on Moore, issues 24-hour ultimatum

    To explain how he knows Beverly Young Nelson, who has proof in her yearbook that Moore, who has denied ever meeting her, sought a questionable relationship (she says he sexually assaulted her after days of flirtation with her at a restaurant while she was waiting tables).

    I actually will give a nod of respect to Hannity, he could've continued to dig in and, for one reason or another --- I suspect Hannity's own young teen daughter is a factor --- he has decided to do the right thing. I still think Hannity is a total hack, but he just showed he's not completely without principle.

    Anyway, Hannity says, if Moore continues to deny that he ever knew Nelson, or otherwise cannot explain her evidence, Hannity says Moore must quit.

    He seems like a decent guy, he just does his job for his audience.

    Same as all the others.

    Hard to say where this goes from here. Moore just gave a fiery speech at a rural Alabama revivalist church, basically anointing himself God's champion and showing his true colors --- "They've been making up 'rights' since 1965," he said.

    The ball would appear to be in the state party's court. They can disqualify him as the nominee, but that will hand the election to Jones unless a write-in effort gains serious steam. Even then, it would seem apparent that Moore would proceed to run his own write-in effort. If he doesn't give up, the Republicans are just screwed.

    I'd like to think Hannity had a pang of conscience but I have a feeling he had more to do with advertisers threatening to pull their ads given his stand with Moore despite the allegations.

    That's not the vibe I'm getting from Hannity. Perhaps it was a factor, and yes Hannity is good at the false outrage bit, but in tonight's broadcast he seemed genuinely put off that he had invited Moore onto his personal radio program on Friday --- as basically the only major broadcaster willing to talk to him as a friend --- only to be misled completely about Moore's past.

    To wit, Hannity was clearly not told about Mrs. Nelson. I suspect not even Moore's wife had been told about her, it's entirely possible that Moore has done what some pathological lairs do in telling himself so many times that he doesn't know her that he actually believes it to be true. That appears to have crossed a line with Hannity. He's still human.

    To bad the Evangelicals in Alabama will still come out and vote for Moore and push him over the finish line to win. Unless there is a write in candidate for the R's that splits the vote there is no way a Democrat will take that seat. Evangelicals accepted Trump and he wasn't even one of them, of course they will accept Moore, he is one of them=they are both perverts.

    Although Trump won 80 percent of the white evangelical vote in his presidential victory, his candidacy exposed and hardened rifts among conservative Christians about partisan politics, the personal character of government leaders and the Gospel. Surveys by the Public Religion Research Institute found that the percentage of white evangelicals who said they still trusted the leadership of a politician who commits an immoral act rose from 30 percent in 2011 to 72 percent last year.

    Anything can happen. It's as I said, the state party can decide to invalidate Moore, leaving it up to the rest of them to get a write-in campaign going for Strange or Sessions, though Sessions, determined to define his legacy as Attorney General, has shot them down.

    But if they do that, and are not completely successful, or if Moore refuses to accept defeat and mounts his own write-in bid, Jones comes out on top. For this reason, I suspect you are more or less right, they are just going to stop campaigning for him in the quiet hopes that a rudderless base just hits the "R" button with one eye closed. If that happens, they can come to an arrangement to either tolerate Moore or, if there are yet more shoes to drop, expel him and allow Gov. Kay Ivey to name another Republican.

    I don't think it was either. In this situation, you could defend Moore in the beginning because you were one of many. As the defenders drop off one by one, your continued defense means you stand out more. No one wants to be the last defender here. The last rat jumping off the S.S. Roy Moore. That's who everyone will remember most.
