Disgraced Alabama Jurist Roy Moore disgraces himself… again. This time, during UAH Professor Murderess Amy Bishop’s guilty plea.

Perhaps it was the Almighty calling him, eh?
I can hear the dialogue now:
“Roy… don’t run again, son. You’ve already embarrassed Me enough, and shown what an idiot you are. So do me a favor, go back home, and go fishing in the lake, instead.”

Roy Moore’s cell phone.
Judges typically frown on cell phones going off in their courtrooms.
“It was an accident,” said Rich Hobson, Moore’s campaign manager. “It was a family member calling but it was an accident.
“He apologized to the judge and was very sorry that the phone went off.”
Moore slipped into Mann’s courtroom just before the brief hearing began.
As the shrill ring of the phone echoed throughout the small courtroom, Moore quickly silenced it. The phone then rang again and Moore, with a grimace on his face, left the room.
It made for an odd moment as the courtroom — filled to capacity by media and courthouse employees just curious to watch the hearing — was eerily quiet when Bishop entered while escorted by seven Madison County sheriff’s deputies.
Before the hearing began, a smiling Moore stood against a wall behind the prosecution table.
Moore was in Huntsville today to speak to a lunchtime meeting of the Republican Women of Huntsville.
