The Constitution Party wants Roy Moore, the recently removed "Ten Commandments" judge from Alabama, to run for President. The Bush administration recently thumbed its nose at Moore by appointing Bill Pryor, the man who prosecuted the case that removed Moore from the bench, to a Federal Appeals Court.
Pryor is himself fairly detestable; not only has he generally pushed positions that are racist, sexist, classist/elitist, anti-Separation, and anti-Choice -- his comment on Roe v Wade: "I will never forget Jan. 22, 1973, the day seven members of our highest court ripped the Constitution and ripped out the life of millions of unborn children." -- he was apparently willing to sell out the principles he'd been consistently defending for years, and turned against Moore after having publicly offered to argue Moore's side of the case, presumably in an effort to make himself look slightly less extreme, so as to persuade Senate Dems to give him a pass; when that didn't work, Bush used a recess appointment to put him on the bench.
What say we give the man a little encouragement? I've been unable to find a direct email address. If any of you do, please let me know. Lacking that info, here's an email I just sent to his legal foundation:
Subject: Moore for President?
I cannot find a direct email address for Roy Moore, but would like to encourage him to sign on with the Constitution Party and run for President. George W Bush has just appointed, to the federal bench, the man who removed Moore from the Alabama Supreme Court. Surely this makes clear enough the fact that Judge Moore's point of view is not being taken seriously by the Republican party.
Update, 6:33pm. You can send Roy a personal letter of encouragement at this address:
