Whoa, what an upset. Alabama hasn’t clutched a democratic senator to its timeless bosom since 1992. That’s a long time. However, in the equally timeless but in a different way Trump era, Mr. Doug Jones becomes so much more. Immediately after defeating anti-establishment puppet/child molester Roy Moore, Doug Jones is seen as the Angel from Alabama that will save Congress from its corrupt ways. HOLD ON JUST A SECOND! Before you dismiss me as just another crazy blogger, let me explain. I don’t necessarily agree with that perspective. Sure, I was a happy little camper when it seemed clear Doug Jones would become Alabama’s next senator, but I’m not sure he will be the “Savior of Washington” (wow, so many titles bestowed already in such a small amount of time).
Do I think Jones will become Washington’s savior? Not really. It’s a good upset, though. White-knuckled religious maniac, bigot, and molester Roy Moore is probably digging his grave even if he chooses in the end not to lie in it. Bannon is crying into an American flag. Trump? Well, I’ve not a clue. Probably drinking a diet coke or watching Fox & Friends. He’ll have to re-orient something that substitutes for a moral compass. This should be a time of reflection for the flat-headed bastard, aka POTUS. Don’t count on it.
Congratulations, Doug Jones. You’ve made history. Now go take a nap.
