As a bit of a political anorak (having studied it...because I wasn't good at anything else!) I tuned into this Alabama special election on a CNN Stream on youtube last night all the way to 4am here after . Absolutely fascinating stuff and as ever great coverage by CNN who I've used devoutly since 2012 for these type of US election nights. Love that interactive wall map. The NYTimes interactive polling page was absolutely fantastic as well.

So for those well in tune, can the Democrats win the Senate next year? I hear they're eyeing the senate seats of Nevada and Arizona next year but are there any seats that are in danger of turning from blue to red?

It would be extremely difficult because almost every seat that is up for re-election in 2018 is a seat already occupied by a Democrat. With the DNC being a financial mess, my guess is they will use their resources to push for "vulnerable" House races more than they will anything with the Senate. They'll hope to take a bigger whack at the Senate on the coattails of a presidential candidate in 2020, even with the total uncertainty as to who that candidate would be and what their chances would look like.

We need an investigation into the investigation. And when that doesn't work, the only thing left to do is investigate.

That worked really well for BENGHAZI!!!! and EMAILS!!!!!

Those investigations didn't have the right GOP senators looking into things.

I think so many people mock Trey Gowdy's haircut because it's a rare time when that's not the lowest hanging fruit. Mocking him for being a simpleton seems almost cruel.

Exactly. Like stated, yay for Jones winning, but it's still unsettling that it was as close as it was at all.

I saw that clip on Colbert last night. That was...something else. Wow.

And then the guy who told the story about how, when he and Moore were in Vietnam, they wound up at a brothel with underage girls and Moore supposedly was like, "I'm leaving." Like, hi, dude, YOU ARE NOT HELPING MOORE ONE BIT WITH THIS STORY.

Does anyone else still flinch when someone says 'the president' and your brain quickly recalls that they're talking about the twat from The Apprentice?

I think it is extremely good to wish bad things upon people in positions of power who support fascist ideology, such as the violent expulsion of minority groups from the country.

i don't wish for any health crises removing him from office or killing him, simply because i don't want his followers to have the ammunition to turn him into a martyr or claim like everything was going great and he just had bad luck/a turn of fate.

i hope we get to see him take a massive and embarrassing loss either due to congress turning on him and dumping him, criminal charges landing him in a cell, or a historically massive landslide in 2020. the best ending to this would be to see his ego mortally wounded and watch him have to live out the rest of his days as the most humiliated and reviled president of all time.
