What do you do when Michele Bachmann declares her desire to run for president, thus raising the bar on GOP Crazy to a whole new level? Well, Roy Moore, the rogue Alabama judge of the Ten Commandments controversy, has an idea:
Remember Judge Roy Moore? He was the Alabama Supreme Court chief justice removed from office over the Ten Commandments monument he erected outside the state courthouse. Now, he’s about to jump into the presidential election in Iowa, GOP officials say.
Eight years after a state panel removed him from the bench over the commandments spat, and five years after he lost in the Republican primary in the Alabama governor’s race, the 64-year-old judge is preparing to launch a presidential exploratory committee and enter the Iowa fray, according to multiple Iowa GOP officials.
The pack this time is likely to include former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann, Texas Rep. Ron Paul and former Godfather’s Pizza CEO Herman Cain. Judge Moore could bring the field to six, causing some analysts here to predict that the social conservative bloc could be splintered, opening the way for a more middle-of-the-road GOP contender, such as former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.
Here is what Roy Moore thinks about marriage equality:
“No society is prepared to deal with the problems arising out of same-sex marriages; child abuse, adoption, divorce, foster care, alimony and the list goes on and on,” Moore told a welcoming crowd.
Wait, wait, wait.
“No society is prepared to deal with the problems arising out of opposite-sex marriages; child abuse, adoption, divorce, foster care, alimony AND THE LIST GOES ON AND ON,” Hurst added with a smirk on his face.
