In just 14 seconds, this video of Alabama Rep. Mo Brooks fleeing down some stairs, dodging questions from ABC News's Tom Llamas, manages to sum up why there's still a fair chance Alabama will elect accused child molester Roy Moore to the US Senate. We have a feeling this may become an iconic image of the Age of Trump:
Llamas: Do you believe Roy Moore over the women?
Brooks: I believe that the Democrats will do great damage to our country.
Llamas: So you still believe Roy Moore?
Brooks: I believe that the Democrats will do great damage to our country on a myriad of issues.
Not even an "if the charges are true" there. Given a choice between a Democrat who convicted Klansmen who murdered four little girls in the 1963 Birmingham church bombing, or a guy who's probably a child molester and who (allegedly) attempted to rape a 16-year-old, Alabamans definitely want the accused child molester, because just think of all the damage a Democrat might do to our great nation.
Incidentally, no, "a myriad of issues" is not actually horrible usage -- while many folks condemn "a myriad of" as barbaric, The Experts say either way is OK. Just be ready to hear a lot of tiresome nitipicking if you use "a myriad of."
So no, you won't see Yr Wonkette insisting Brooks should have said "Democrats will do great damage to our country on myriad issues." You will see us insisting he should have said "Roy Moore is unfit to be in the Senate for myriad reasons."

You should definitely donate some money to this little mommyblog where he has finally found acceptance and cat pictures. He is on maternity leave until 2033. Here is his Twitter, also. His quest to avoid prolixity is not going so great.
