After all the media chaff/flare, all the “lack of enthusiasm in the black community” garbage hot takes, after all the normalizing of the most abnormal candidates since, well, the 2016 campaign – someone finally said “ENOUGH!” And that someone was the good people of Alabama, who outnumbered the slugs by enough to elect Doug Jones to the US Senate over tiny pistol-carrying, gigantic (empty) hat-wearing, incompetent horse-riding, R.Kelly wannabe Roy Moore:
Doug Jones pulled off a massive upset Tuesday night, turning a Senate seat blue in a solid red state.
Jones, a former federal prosecutor, defeated Republican Roy Moore Tuesday night in a hard-fought battle that included allegations that the GOP nominee had improper sexual contact with teenage girls in the 1970s. Moore has not conceded the race and said he will wait until final numbers to see if a recount is required.
Jones received 639,088 votes – or 50 percent – to Moore’s 629,749 votes, or 49 percent.
The horse appears relieved that his time in the spotlight is coming to an end:
Congratulations to Doug Jones on a hard fought victory. The write-in votes played a very big factor, but a win is a win. The people of Alabama are great, and the Republicans will have another shot at this seat in a very short period of time. It never ends!
On the heels of the DNC comes some encouraging news:
A federal appeals court decisively struck down North Carolina’s voter identification law on Friday, saying its provisions deliberately “target African-Americans with almost surgical precision” in an effort to depress black turnout at the polls.
The Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals panel unleashed a blistering 83-page can of “WTF were you THINKING” on the hapless dopes of the NCGOP, noting that the law “constitute inapt remedies for the problems assertedly justifying them and, in fact, impose cures for problems that did not exist.”
Particularly damning evidence was brought to light when it was revealed that the legislature took this action only after the Supreme Court struck down provisions of the Voting Rights Act pertaining to federal oversight of election policy, meticulously studying voting patterns and procedures favored by minorities, and then deliberately restricting or eliminating those (and only those) patterns and procedures.
Similarly restrictive provisions in Wisconsin’s voter ID law were also struck down.
North Carolina officials stated their intent to appeal, but with a 4-4 tie at the Supreme Court level (thanks for not doing your jobs, GOP senators!) it is likely that the rejection of the law will stand for this election cycle.
We’re DONE with all the nonsense. We have no more time for naysayers, pearl clutchers, Bernie-or-Busters, GOP ratfuckers, and courtesan “liberal” media (and yes, at least three of these are redundant). The time for foolishness and naivete is OVER. Time to get down to business, time for the ADULTS to take the stage.
