Pity Roy Moore’s Wife

As the shameful revelations of Roy Moore’s past continue to snowball, I can’t help feeling sorry for his wife, Kayla (pictured with her husband).

In fact, I feel sorry for all the wives and girlfriends of the myriad celebrities and politicians being shamed by women who accuse them of sexual assault.

Some of the men being shamed surprise me. Who would’ve suspected George H. W. Bush of being a groper?

Moore, of course, isn’t just a groper. He’s accused of being a pedophile. And that’s as low as anyone can sink.

But I bet Kayla didn’t know that when she said, “I do.”

We men can look so earnest and trustworthy. But looks, as I’m sure you know, can be deceptive.

What’s a girl to do when her guy pops the question? Demand an affidavit of some kind? Have him checked out by a detective agency?

You know she isn’t going to do that when she has stars in her eyes and he’s pouring honeyed words into her ear.

She can only hope that she’s getting one of the good guys.

And when she finds out she did not?

Kayla, for one, is choosing denial.

Not her Roy, she insists. He would never do anything like that. It’s a witch hunt. Obviously, his accusers were paid by those wicked liberals. Didn’t they malign President Trump, too?

Kayla has apparently convinced herself that her man is innocent. She is gathering evidence to prove it, she says.

And she asks the good people of Alabama to pray for him.

I think they should pray for Kayla. What could she possibly have done to deserve a husband like Roy Moore?

The blight is widespread
