"My Eyes Just Burning, Ain't Nobody Crying": Doug Jones Wins

Whew. That was way too close for comfort. And yeah, the country's in a sorry state to have come to this. But not only does Doug Jones become the first Democrat to win a Senate seat in Alabama in 25 years; his win is a blunt rejection of all the hate-mongering, gay-bashing, race-baiting, sexual-assaulting, serial lying crap of losers Moore and Trump and Bannon too. Forward. And cnce and for all, to Moore in all his evil: "Fuck you and the horse you (badly) rode in on."

To all Alabamans who voted for Doug Jones: Thank You! You did it! This is a great and highly symbolic step forward for your State and your country. Congratulations!!!

Good stuff. Though it is worrying that it was so close.


#4

It’s Alabama. My California District will be close too if we manage to kick out my Congressman. But I’m damn sure going to help make it happen close or not.


#5

21,000 votes isn’t real close. For a Democrat to win a major race in Alabama borders on the miraculous, even if it is close!


#6

Very true.

Jones was a great candidate. I watched one of his speeches, as well as a couple tv appearances, and was very impressed by his presence. A stark contrast to Moore.

That is definitely the optimistic side of looking at it. Hopefully this sends a precedent to other long time controlled R states.
