Yeah, it's basically an obsequious greeting.

ThinkProgress: Speaker at Moore event says he accidentally went with Moore to a brothel with child prostitutes

Oopsies! Our bad!

I love that this 'old friend' saw “Roy Moore accused of sexual misconduct with children” and thought, "Oh boy do I have the perfect story to defend him with!"

MotherJones: European Parliament Report Accuses Wilbur Ross of Insider Trading

Image

At any other time, the commerce secretary being accused of insider trading by a respected (okay, well, you know what I mean) foreign government would be a massive scandal. Today it's just another thing.

I love how Wilbur Ross looks exactly what you imagine a guy like that to look like.

I've only heard the name, but never put a face to- *click* -oh yeah, no kidding.

Also too, has anyone else heard about how Moore is apparently garbage at horse? I don't know how to ride and Twitter is so hysterical on the best of days, but that just looks wrong.

So Trump implied that Gillibrand offered him sexual favors for campaign contributions, right?

Man I wish that horse had fucking bucked him.

And then maybe kicked him in the skull, you know, not hard enough to kill, but maybe dent his brain a little, he could have a miraculous personality change and put himself in jail

Yeeeeep.

Actually the funniest part of that in my mind is the way Trump would normally donate to every possible candidate to cover his political bases. If anyone was prostituting themselves, it was Trump.

NYT Election Results tracker

As of 9:42 (Eastern Standard Time), The NYT is projecting a narrow - but not nailbitingly close - victory for... Doug Jones?!

Well, it's still close. Here's hoping anyway.

The last thing the MSM needs right now is an election predictor for this race but here we go anyway

What a relief.

And it's good news for next year, and for 2020, too, though don't read too much into it. The sad fact is that Moore only lost this race because he was revealed as a pedophile; if he'd only been a virulently anti-gay, anti-Muslim, racist, sexist scumbag who'd been twice removed from the bench for ethics violations, he would have won.

Still, between this and Virginia, things are looking up. I don't expect any more deep-red states like Alabama to flip like that, but slightly-red ones? Yes. Yes I do. There's every possibility I'll have a Democratic senator in thirteen months.

Of course this means that the Republicans are going to scramble to revise and pass their tax bill before Jones takes office. Might be time to start calling and faxing again.

Also, like... thank fucking god for black voters, and specifically black women. I don't think it is hyperbolic to say black women won this for the Dems.

Fuckin' A riley they did. Good on 'em.

Now if you don't mind, I'll engage in a little poor sportsmanship:

Shout-out to political mastermind Steve Bannon for losing Alabama to a pro-choice Democrat.

Well, for Alabama standards, it was a fucking landslide.

I'm hoping that the Democrats are done taking African-American voters for granted. Not everybody can bring the kind of black voter turnout that Obama did, obviously, but if black voters stay home then Democrats are sunk. Especially in the South.

Jones had to walk a pretty fine line to encourage black turnout without alienating conservative white voters. If Obama had agreed to campaign for him, that would have been huge for black voter turnout, but man, white Alabamans hate Obama. There's a part of me that's curious how things would have turned out if he'd taken that risk, but of course we'll never know, and clearly the outreach efforts he chose have been vindicated.

Yeah, the flipside of my "don't read too much into this" comments is, a Democrat winning in a state that Republicans usually win by 28 points is a pretty big fucking upset.

It's not clear how much of that is because of the trend against Trump, how much is because of the pedophilia revelations, and how much is because Moore was already a pretty shitty candidate before the pedophilia revelations. We'll have a clearer picture of what the trend line looks like a year from now. There are a lot of reasons for optimism here, but it's also a pretty unique election.
