Today’s lesson in doing it wrong comes courtesy of Alabama GOP Senate hopeful Roy Moore:

This happened at a campaign speech yesterday:

“We were torn apart in the Civil War — brother against brother, North against South, party against party. What changed?” Moore asked in footage provided to The Hill by a Republican monitoring the race.

“Now we have blacks and whites fighting, reds and yellows fighting, Democrats and Republicans fighting, men and women fighting. What’s going to unite us? What’s going to bring us back together? A president? A Congress? No. It’s going to be God.”

Moore’s campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment about his language.


That’s certainly one explanation, yes.

Roy Moore seems like the kind of candidate who could benefit from a handler. Or a life coach. You know, someone who could convince him to take a few minutes to get his stuff together.

That is really good advice.
