Congratulations to the slightly more than half of the Alabama voting public who came to a sensible decision (perhaps against their more comfortable voting preferences). Shame on the other half who voted for a monster.

    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.

I don't see this as a rejection of Trump. I think the pedophilia issue made it impossible for some to vote for Moore. I think if anything, a lot of died-in-the-wool Republicans probably just stayed home this election, whereas the anti-Moore contingent were highly motivated to get to the polls.

I've read articles that say this is more of a rebuke to Steve Bannon and his attempts to reinvent the Republican party to be more in line with his own brand of politics. I hope Bannon and Breitbart fade away forever after this.

    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.

Yes. He should never have been allowed to run. And having been chosen, and self-respecting President should never have stumped for him. But then, Moore and Trump have similar accusations facing them, and you know what they say about birds of a feather.

I'm always suspicious of political stories in my Facebook feed, but I saw a chart that showed black men and women overwhelmingly voted for Jones, while white men and women voted in favor of Moore (around the 70% range). That's very telling, and says a lot about the state of Alabama.

And a lean, silent figure slowly fades into the gathering darkness, aware at last that in this world, with great power there must also come -- great responsibility!
