Hey guys, did you know that there was an election last night? It’s true, not FAKE NEWS!!1!
Let’s see how the primary to replace Jefferson Beauregard ‘Stonewall’ Sessions III went down in Alabama!
As you may recall Luther Strange was appointed when Sessions became the AG. He was being challenged by noted dip Rep. Mo Brooks and by dark-horse (hahaha, see what I did there?) twice-removed-from-office Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore.
The Alabama GOP Senate race is headed to a September runoff, with incumbent Sen. Luther Strange — who had the backing of both President Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell — set to face-off against conservative favorite Roy Moore.
With about two-thirds of the vote in, the AP reported that the contest was going to a runoff. Moore, a controversial former state Supreme Court chief justice, finished first in Tuesday’s balloting, getting 41% of the vote to Strange’s 32%. Rep. Mo Brooks was a distant third with almost 20%.
Oh, Sweet Jeebus (literally), Y’all Qaeda’s Roy ’10 Commandments’ Moore is fundamentalist xristian theocrat, the kind that scares the Debbil outta me. He’s not an Elmer Gantry wannabe, he’s like Pence: a true believer, who really does believe that the end (meaning the Rapture) justifies the means, praise Jeebus:
That anti-establishment strain is how Moore gained national notoriety in the first place. After refusing to remove a monument of the Ten Commandments from a state judicial building despite a federal court order, Moore was removed from his position atop the state’s court in 2003. In 2012, he was elected to the same post again but was suspended after he ordered judges to enforce Alabama’s ban on same-sex marriage despite the Supreme Court’s 2015 decision legalizing it nationwide. He resigned earlier this year to challenge Strange.
On the positive side if he wins: there’s no way amply be-chinned Mitch McConnell will be able to craft a deal of any kind. Even Comrade Preznint Stupid realized that Luther Strange was essential to having any kind of legislation come through the Senate and very publicly endorsed him. McConnell was funneling millions of Ameros to Luther Strange’s campaign, so Luther Strange coming in second is a YUGE loss to both the turtle and the shitgibbon. Sad!
