Important to remember that Alabama had Shelby County v Holder and that they've made a concerted effort to close polling places in black communities.

Hi trojanchick, what do you like best about Ms. Harris? You're a California resident, right?

This is an excellent read. It's what I've been saying for a long time. Enough with the naivete of "meeting these people halfway".

Roy Moore Rally Speakers from Steve Bannon to Louie Gohmert Bash Doug Jones Campaign

Quote:
You grow exhausted from the effort it takes to keep mockery at bay long enough to explain that what Moore and Bannon are selling is a dangerous blend of religious extremism and McCarthyite bombast, Roy Cohn in Torquemada drag. You grow exhausted by the effort it takes, over and over again, to remind yourself that there are good people in the crowd cheering this river of sludge and nonsense.

Finally, you give up. Roy Moore is a vehicle for collecting suckers, for liberating them from their responsibility as citizens in a self-governing republic, and anybody who thinks this waterheaded theocrat belongs in the United States Senate is a dupe and a fool. Finally, you don’t care if the people behind Roy Moore, and the people in the crowd in front of him, believe you are a member of the coastal elite or an agent of Lucifer. Finally, you grow weary of the smug condescension of religious bigots. Finally, you decide to put down the twin burdens of excusing deliberate ignorance and respecting the opinions of people who want to light the world on fire to kill their imaginary enemies. And you give up and tell the truth.

These people deserve what they get.

while that may be true, in this case unfortunately we all get what they deserve.

Keep in mind, too, Diemen did share that link earlier today about some sketchy ruling related to the ballots. I don't doubt that's affecting results to some degree, too.

Even then, though...come the fuck ON, Alabama. What the hell is wrong with you? This should not be a contest. At all.

I wondered about that. I just keep seeing things about it being too close to call right now.

But fingers crossed regardless.

I forget who I was arguing with... but this is why you invest in Alabama. Jones looks slated to win.

Jones getting ready to pull away and win...

And Trump will play it off that he wanted Luther strange the whole time.

Still technically behind by 0.2% but the remaining counties with votes are overwhelmingly Jones.

This is the point where they'd call it for Jones if they didn't want people to keep watching.
