Rush’s point seems to have less to do with how Moore’s political tastes might have informed his sexual tastes than that Democrats are supposedly more likely to maintain a conspiracy of silence around a predator. The idea, I think, is that the locals were more willing to keep his secrets before 1992, when he became a Republican because Democrats look out for other Democrats. So … the locals were also Democrats before ’92?
What about the fact that they’ve been keeping his secrets *since* 1992, throughout his legal battles over the Ten Commandments and gay marriage and a successful Republican primary run for Senate? What is he talking about here?
In the second clip below, you’ll find Rush musing that child locks weren’t standard in cars until the 1980s, years after Nelson claimed that Moore had locked her in the front seat during his alleged assault. But Nelson never claimed that Moore used a child lock on the driver’s door.
