Politicians should realize by now: you can't get the best of Jimmy Kimmel. He will win the war of words every time. He's battled health care and gun control, and now he's battling sexual misconduct.

This time he sent Tony Barbieri, a comedian, to Alabama to give Roy Moore a hard time at one of his campaign rallies. It's interesting to note that the rally was being held in a church during a service.

Moore, of course, is running for Senator in a tight race there in Alabama despite being called out for trying to have sex with teenagers, with the youngest accuser having been 14 at the time. It was allegedly so much of a problem that he was banned from a local mall for preying on teens.

Moore grew upset by the interruption of Barbieri and spread his message on Twitter this time instead of the pulpit. He suggested that if the late-night host wants to "mock our Christian values," that he should "come down here to Alabama and do it man to man."

Kimmel tweeted his response, as only he can, "Great Roy — let me know when you get some Christian values, and I'll be there!"

First, the Senate candidate retweeted Fox News radio host Todd Sterns: "little @jimmykimmel sent one of his goons to Alabama to disrupt a church service where Roy Moore was speaking. I doubt Kimmel would ever disrupt a service at a mosque."

He then chose to extend his invitation once again, as he tweeted, "Despite D.C. and Hollywood Elites' bigotry towards southerners, Jimmy, we'll save you a seat on the front pew."

Kimmel accepted the offer this time, replying, "OK Roy, but I'm leaving my daughters at home! P.S. — wear that cute little leather vest."

Despite Moore no longer replying to him, Kimmel continued, "If Roy Moore @MooreSenate actually wants to fight, meet me at the Gadsden Mall - 1001 Rainbow Drive. I'll be the one in the Girl Scout uniform ..."

This, of course, is the mall the accused pedophile was alleged to have been banned from.

Moore may have had the right idea to abandon this war of words with Kimmel. It wasn't going to end up well for him.
