Look at the photos. roy moore, 70, is on the left. He got tossed off the state supreme court twice and is an accused pedophile.
Doug Jones, 63, on the right, is a prosecutor who succeeded in prosecuting the people responsible for a heinous crime that killed 4 young black kids in the 60s.
A Republican, a Democrat.
This evening, December 12, Democrat Doug Jones won the hotly contested senate seat again against accused pedophile roy moore. No one expected this to happen. It’s the first time in 25 years that a democrat has won a senate seat in Alabama.
It’s also the 25th wedding anniversary of Doug Jones and his wife. Nice synchro for them!
This win comes in spite of trump’s robocalls for Moore, his and bannon’s appearances in Alabama during moore’s campaign, and in spite of the Republicans throwing millions in support of moore.
When Rob and I sat down to watch the results come in, we did a tarot reading on whether Doug Jones would win. Unfortunately, I didn’t take a photo of the cards we pulled. But I said, “Doug Jones is going to win.”
For awhile there as the results were coming in, the spread was 10 points, and I kept thinking that maybe I’d read the result I wanted into the cards. Then the lead narrowed. Then Jones was ahead.
This win of a democrat in Alabama suggests there’s hope for this country, that we still know right from wrong, that an accused pedophile has no place in politics.
Now it’s nearly midnight on December 12 and moore, not surprisingly, refuses to concede. So, stay tuned. The guy who rode in on a horse to cast his vote for himself – immolating Putin, perhaps? – probably will call for a recount. Good riddance, little man.
The onion has the right take!
Our blogging friend Darren from Australia, uncovered some great synchronicities between the Alabama election and Twin Peaks. Take a look.
