    Democrat Doug Jones just beat the red dragon, Roy Moore. In Alabama. The very heart of Trump's base. This is like the Devil being voted out of Hell.

    This is jaw-dropping.

    I think even the Republicans are celebrating. They won't have to deal with Senator Moore being worn around their neck like a vote-repelling garlic necklace.

The backlash against Trump has been happening all year with Democrats winning the majority of special elections in the United States. The more Trump tweets and riles up liberals/progressives, the more likely Congress will return to the Democrats in 2018. And this election is a relief, but that a credibly accused child molester came within about 1% of winning a Senate seat is still pretty scary. That the President and part of the Republican Party came around to backing Moore is just as troubling. This is an excellent piece by conservative Charlie Sykes as he analyzes his post-truth, post-ethics, post-shame Republican Party in the context of Roy Moore's defeat:
