The Trump endorsed knuckle-dragger loses Alabama

From BBC News:
Democrat defeats Roy Moore in Alabama race, dealing setback to Trump

Doug Jones has become the first Democrat in 25 years to win a US Senate seat for Alabama after a bitter campaign against Republican Roy Moore.

The 63-year-old former prosecutor's victory deals a blow to Republicans, narrowing their majority to 51-49 in the Senate.

This is the direct result of Mitch McConnell and the GOPe machine trying to annoint a man, the people of Alabama did not want to represent them in the US Senate, in the primary back in summer.

Same thing happened in the presidential primary as well......

ahahahahahahaaaaaaa!

BANNON'S GUY FAILS!

America is catching up again to the moves, -there was a HUGE VOTER SUPPRESSION campaign but it didn't work as the people managing it were busted in recordings talking about it and planning it.

Normal Republicans said F THIS and 20,000 others said screw it, I'll write someone else in.

So team red left with only a single seat advantage that's to Bannon's poker stars mindset.

So basically people won't fall for the Red-Team-Racist-Auto-Win formula any more. No matter how much Donny T, Steve B, Sean Hannity or any other caca smoker tries to manipulate it and pass over the tainted guys.

Looks like he's gonna pull a wheelie on that horse...

So, Alabama Republican Senator Shelby may have provided the straw that broke Moore's back........encouraging Republican voters to write in a candidate rather than vote for Moore......just days before the election. Somewhere in that news I thought I heard the Edwin Hawkins Singers belting out a tune.

and.. the write-ins were about 22 thousand.. The winning difference between Jones and Moore, about 21,000.. But, you've got to consider that Moore only got about half the votes Trump got last year meaning about 750,000 Alabama Republicans couldn't stomach Moore's antics. Jones has the seat until 2020 and will surely be unseated by another Republican... Contrary to the media pundits I don't think this predicts a Democratic "wave" election in 2018...

The election of Doug Jones in the Alabama election has now been officially certified.

From BBC News:
Democrat Doug Jones has been certified as the winner of the Alabama senate race despite a last-ditch legal case by the defeated Republican Roy Moore.

Republican state officials confirmed the 12 December special election result, one day after Mr Moore claimed election fraud and called for a re-run.

Mr Moore had been expected to win the conservative state but he was dogged by allegations of child sexual misconduct.

Mr Jones will be sworn in by Vice-President Mike Pence on 3 January.

The former Alabama supreme court judge's legal case, filed late on Wednesday, alleged that there were voting irregularities in 20 precincts, which amounted to "systemic election fraud".

The case, which was dismissed by a judge on Thursday, called for a fraud investigation and a new election.....

Additional context, both regarding the result and as an example of just one of the fake news stories on the Alabama election that flooded the internet, can be found in this analysis by Politifact (with links to its sources):

Yeah, seems like Moore never conceded his 2006 loss either, or the one before that.

Some say it's a poor trait of his, but I think he's doing it to display a type of FANATICISM to his constituency, which can be whipped up into intimidation tactics and even rioting to suppress opposition.

It's just that these days there's more federal law and order. But when things mostly ran through the State and Local, his brand of boss man could rule the roost through sheer audacity and unbending will power.

So don't count this guy out. He's gonna use this fanatical approach to take the Governorship over or some other form of office as soon as feasible. Politicians like this are like a super-virus, immune to any antidote.

BANNON is the only true loser here, and the only thing he lost was the platform to rail on stages in front of masses. He can still operate under the radar like he has before, -until his ego comes calling again to lure him to another public drubbing.

Meanwhile, we citizens press on.

Time to go put a banana peel on Lone Star's doorstep. :badteeth:
