Here Comes The Judge

CBS is reporting that Roy Moore, the Alabama Supreme Court justice who lost his job over the Ten Commandments, is exploring a run for the presidency.

The aide, Zachery Michael, said Moore’s platform will be focused on repealing the health care overhaul law, replacing the progressive income tax with a flat tax and bringing “commonsense solutions” on immigration and border control.

Michael said Moore is entering the fray because “we’re just seeing the same type of politicians run for president.” He said Moore is someone “who can connect with over 300 million Americans across the country, which is something we’ve been lacking with today’s leaders across society.”

Michael said Moore should not be thought of simply as a culture warrior, arguing that he has been a strong advocate for limited government.

“He not only stood up for his faith, he stood up against the tyranny of government,” he said.

It’s ironic that the more extreme the candidate, the more they like to talk about “commonsense” solutions… like massive deportations of brown people or taking over a woman’s body by the state the minute she gets pregnant.

Well, we’ve already got Bachmann, Palin, Cain, Gingrich, Huckabee and Trump, but there’s always room in the clown car for one Moore.
