Subj: The Eve of the Moore-acalypse

Excuse this minor political rant.
I don't have high hopes for the Alabama election. Moore believes that 9/11 was punishment from God, doesn't believe that women should serve in politics, doesn't believe in freedom of religion, thinks gays should be outlawed, and thinks America attained moral perfection during slavery. He says that he has more in common with Putin than he does with most Americans, because Putin authorizes beat-downs of gays in Russia.
I watched a CNN special recently where 'conservative tech workers' were feeling discriminated against because they couldn't express support for this brand of conservatism in the workplace.
The implication was that this is a valid ideological viewpoint, on par with other mainstream ideologies. And I guess now it is. Or maybe it always was and we were just fooling ourselves otherwise.
What's the saying?
'Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.'
