I find this disgusting but not all shocking

Well the good news is that these are the same folks that walk around with their pocket Constitution in their pocket. Given their voting history it is obviously there to present to any literate person who happens to ask for one as they clearly haven't read or understood the important parts...or the unimportant parts.

Not a bit of diffrence between Strange and Moore and how they'll vote if elected.
This is a bit of diffrence with Moore as the candidate, because the democrat has a 'fighting chance' against Moore in the general. He wouldn't have a chance against Strange.

The one consolation is this loss for Trump will cut him deep. His stupid ass rally for Strange did nothing.

He will be demoralized by it.

Donald Trump campaigns for Strange, and appeals to white supremacy when he does it.  Steve Bannon campaigns for Moore and against the candidate Trump supports by appealing to white supremacy and insisting that a vote against Trump's favored candidate is a vote for Trump.  Alabama Republicans decide to vote for the candidate Trump told them not to vote for because they know what Trump really meant was to vote for him.

I don't think the Democrat will ultimately win, so anything that further fractures the Republican party is a consolation prize I'll accept at this point.

/the "fark you" to Trump is the real prize

I voted in the Democratic primary and so couldn't vote in the runoff, and I'll be voting for Doug Jones in the general. That said, neither of the two GOP candidates was a good choice, to be honest, and even before the runoff, the top candidates for the GOP nomination was an utter shiatshow. Even Republican voters are turned off right now. It's anyone's guess as to how much so.

The top four candidates were:

Moore (who you already know)
Strange - a former lobbyist turned AG who might have dropped the ball on the investigation into Gov. Bentley in exchange for a Senate seat.
Mo Brooks - Oh, just Google the idiot. There's a string of reasons to not like him, not the least of which was his stating that good people don't have pre-existing conditions
Trip Pittman - A real gem who was fresh from his battle against autistic kids. I'm convinced that he was never a good person. He also directed BP oil money toward his personal business.

There were a couple of okay-ish ones in the mix, but nobody had ever heard of any of them.

All that in mind, Moore was (and yeah, I'm throwing up in my mouth a little bit saying this) the best choice of the top four, and only because I think he'd be the least effective out of all of them. (The others aren't as crazy, but they'd get more accomplished.) McConnell hates him, and Moore hates McConnell right back, so it should be interesting to watch them try not to tear each other apart. The dude makes Ted Cruz seem likable. He'd also be one senator in a sea of other senators, which makes him a hell of a lot less powerful than if he ran for state office again. Yes, I'm okay with him being there and taking the hit on him being an embarrassment as long as he's politically neutered. At worst, you'll have a Republican replacing a Republican in a seat that wasn't going to swing anyway, and he'll vote about the same as Strange would have anyway.

Now, the good news... Moore has the more passionate supporters, but they really are a minority, even among Republicans. A lot of Republican voters have already said that they'd vote for Doug Jones if Moore won the primary. But Jones has a glimmer of a chance. I'm not holding my breath, of course. This is Alabama, and it's not even remotely a swing state. But there's a chance. I'll vote for Jones and won't mind being pleasantly surprised if he happens to win. He's a strong candidate, which is unusual for the Alabama Dems. And last I checked, he was polling pretty close to Roy Moore. That said, I think the national party needs to stay far, far away from this one. It'd hurt Jones more than help him.

The real trick is going to be getting the Dem voters and Republican crossovers to vote. Moore will have no problems getting his voters out. Even though he has a minority, it's a passionate minority that will show up. And even with some crossover voters, most Republicans are likely to hold their nose and vote for the candidate with the "R" next to his name. And again... They show up to vote. I do think that at the very least this is going to be a very close race, and that in and of itself says a lot-- particularly in a state like Alabama.

From Jones on this point (this was prior to knowing it was Moore that won):

McConnell's super PAC has already poured $8 million into the Republican primary and can be expected to spend even more on the run-off and general election. Do you think the Democratic Party should devote equal resources to this race?


I don't know. We're going to run our race and we're going to see how things go. I don't think that this is necessarily a national party race. We're going to focus on Alabama and we're going to let the chips fall where they're going to fall. I believe that we're going to get a significant bit of attention from across the country - this is after all the first Senate race in the Trump era. I don't think that either of the Republican nominees are going to be very strong.

No he won't. He said both guys were great, so it didn't matter who won. And Bannon labeled Moore the "true Trump candidate." Trump wins again, and we all lose. Again.

I can't even joke about this.  Moore is INCREDIBLY dangerous to anyone who isn't christian.  he's made it clear he intends to change the laws to strip legal rights away from as many non christians as possible.   I cannot overstate enough just how dangerous it would be to put Moore into the US senate.

In all seriousness, I know that you're right.  Hell, most of my family lives down in Alabama, and I'm confident that they'll all vote against him.  Still, it's not like Strange or Sessions were significantly better than Moore.

It's like if Freddy Kruger convinced Jason Voorhees to endorse Predator in an election between Alien and Predator, and you want to be happy because Allen winning is an embarrassment to Jason Voorhees.

Suddenly, Norman Bates is who we're all waiting to save us all.

I believe that we're going to get a significant bit of attention from across the country - this is after all the first Senate race in the Trump era. I don't think that either of the Republican nominees are going to be very strong.


I mean, of course I'm voting for Doug Jones. He's not only the only sane candidate in this race, he's actually a GOOD candidate all on his own. And this is in a state where the Democratic Party is so caught up in its own drama that it can't be bothered to worry about little things like putting up a decent candidate for election. (I mean, Parker Griffith? Really?) In Jones, we have a guy who's just plain ol' likeable and moderate enough that even Republicans won't have much to argue with him on, he seems to genuinely want to help people in this state, and for crying out loud... He made a name for himself by prosecuting Civil Rights villains! If he accidentally gets himself elected in Alabama, it'd be a huge deal.

That said, even though he's polling really close to Moore, I'm well aware of what state I live in, and I don't see where national party pouring tons of money and attention into this will help him out much if any. All it will do is drain coffers that could be used elsewhere and associate Jones with the likes of Pelosi, who isn't very popular down here. It'd hurt him. It'd hurt the national party. It's lose-lose, if they get involved. Rather, I think they could just let him do his thing and play his calm and well-reasoned sanity against Moore's sideshow crap, and he'll naturally give Moore a good fight just from all the people who hate Moore. Jones doesn't need any snappy one-liners or gimmicks. He's done practically nothing so far, and he's already just shy of being tied with Moore. In Alabama.

Again... I don't think he'll win, but I think he's going to come very close with very little effort, and he might just squeak out a win regardless.

Meanwhile, I've been pitching it to Republicans that they really have nothing to lose by voting for Doug Jones and everything to gain. The GOP has no reason to pander at all to Alabama or the state's needs because we're a guarantee. What incentive does the GOP have to put any effort into the state? It's obvious that they'll bend over backwards for other states that are a little more iffy. Send them a Democrat, and we'll get their attention. Meanwhile, Trump still has a majority, so they haven't exactly swung the Senate, and if they end up not liking Jones, well they can vote him out in the next election anyway. Meanwhile, they don't have to vote for someone they dislike just because of a letter next to his name. It's not a hard sell, even to Republican voters.

Let me offer the converse argument against the conventional wisdom that the national Democratic Party should not "waste" many resources in this Alabama Senate race: Imagine what might happen if the party WOULD pour a grown-up amount of expertise and resources into the contest --- treat Alabama with a little respect, in other words. And then Mr. Jones WINS.

Think what that would do to spark national fundraising efforts everywhere else. You point to Alabama as a model and say See what your money did there! Now give more!

They poured money into my district for Jon Ossoff and it gave the Republicans their best talking point to rally stupid hicks: "Look at the elitist liberals pouring in money to help Jon Ossoff". And in response  they dragged their fat asses to the polls because "city folks just don't get it".
