Moore's Bedfellow? UPDATE: Townhall VP Defines 'Helps Run'

They say that politics makes strange bedfellows, but in Alan Moore’s case, perhaps it’s not so strange.

Moore, that rock-ribbed Republican, self-describes himself to Politico as “a strong conservative” who is apparently bitter over the loss of his pet candidate, liberal RINO Mike Castle. There is hell to be paid for the defeat of his pretty, and when Politico comes calling, he’s going to nuzzle the phone receiver between his ear and shoulder, kick back in his desk chair, prop his feet up on the desk, and the bile flow.

Politico describes him as someone “who worked on press releases and policy statements for two months during [Christine O’Donnell’s failed 2008 Senate] bid and now helps run the conservative site Townhall.com” in the article where he merrily trash talks O’Donnell after she won the Republican primary.

Politico has thus far taken a bat to O’Donnell with quotes from three of her former staffers–Kristin Murray, David Keegan and Alan Moore. Good reporters will include connections between sources in their articles and let the chips fall where they may. Reporters with a “narrative” to push aren’t going to let icky details muck up their stories.

Would it be surprising to learn that sources coming from the tiny overlap of set A (Republicans) and set B (Delaware campaign workers) would likely know one another? Hardly. It would be expected.

Would it flavor your reading of a story, however, if two of the three disgruntled sources are currently romantically involved? If a couple of sources are actually a couple?

Well, I can’t say for sure that there’s mutual romantic feelings going on, but it does seem that Moore has a big ol’ crush on Kristin Murray–Politico’s original O’Donnell trash-talker who popped up just in time to do an anti-Christine robo-call for the Delaware GOP on election day.

Let’s take a look at some of Moore’s sweet Twitterings:
