Couldn't the "establishment" have found a better candidate???

Or is it just all about the "establishment" winning, damn the best candidtate???

Tough luck Alabama, next time get your S# together!! Look what happened here in Colorado!!!

I guess I'm short on sympathy with the "establishment" these days.

On a positive Al Franken is disappointed too. Of course Franken won't actually resign until trump resigns, those will be the new terms. Atleast Republicans won't get beat up with Moore anymore, that distraction will be gone.

Folks are complaining now, just wait until 2018 when the Dems take back the Senate and wreck that majority in the House. One sign of a government's instability its the polar shift by the electorate each election and that trend will only continue.

It is a trying time for America. Social media is impacting a lot of decisions that will come back and haunt us all later on. The stock market is so oversold it is pathetic. Sheep America doesn't understand much. When the economy goes belly up... sheep America will point fingers in the blame game at the govt.When actually the rich who control it will be part of the problem. Pay Attention banks will close and folks won't get a dime, but most of sheep America don't have much anyway. They are protesting, pointing fingers at their govt now for that very reason.. no future.

I think Alabama Republican Senator Richard Shelby thrust the final dagger into Moore's back from behind , it looks to be that he's a leading member of the swamp......Damn them all ! . To the loss I say it's the Republican leaderships fault/plan, there's cheering going on in the Red section now

There's enough finger pointing to go around, but Kay Ivey, the lieutenant governor who took over after Bentley resigned last year, called for the special Senate election instead of letting Luther Strange remain as Senator until the regular election.

In reflection, she cost the state and the nation a lot more than just money.

Thanks Mitch?

Mitch supported Strange who would have won in a landslide. Thanks go to the idiots in Alabama who picked the one Republican on the planet who could lose in Alabama.

You fellers can’t pass the buck on this one. Picking and sticking with Moore cost Trump a sure vote in a very closely held Senate. Congrats.

...this coming from a Trump "hater"?....Strange was worse than having the Dem Jones!....so calling me an idiot makes you famous?..I would rather have Jones than Strange...the Republican party will die in this state!..You know nothing about me are my state..but I know you for being a smart azz that thinks he is smart...





The 'idiot' comment was not targeted to any one individual, pwillie, and even if it was, I sincerely doubt that labeling anyone on this board an idiot would contribute to fame in any way.

Moore was controversial to begin with, and absent the allegations of chasing little girls, probably would have won. The fact remains, however, that somewhere he was not properly vetted, and his response to the allegations is what sunk him as much as the allegations themselves.

While you are correct in stating that I don't know Alabama, I do know that whining that you thought she was '19 years old' when you plied her with drink, and stating that you never 'dated a girl without her mother's permission' went a long way toward convincing people there was a real possibility at least some of the allegations had merit.

You may be right about Jones as well. Good chance he will vote against the $ 170 billion addition to the deficit that Trump is proposing in his DOD request.

I didn't think there was any way he would win.

Just too much bad press and too many accusations that were not answered.

They should have never held a special election.

Every GOP candidate in the future better be ready for accusations of sexual harassment. Democrats have come up with a winning strategy.

He was accused of being a pedophile.

The dems are eating each other over sexual harassment.

Piss on the post election blues and Winter.

This makes me smile and look to Summer. Democrats may steal my election, but they won't steal my sunshine.

I find it rather comical that this is all somehow seen (by anyone, but particularly the left) as some huge swing victory for Democrats. The D candidate won by a pretty slim victory considering how successfully his opponent was painted as a pedophile.

How many elections for offices other than judicial has he lost ?

This makes three.

How many times has he been removed from judicial office ?

Twice.

Vetting ???

I think you mean 'overbought' since oversold would mean the RSI was showing bargains available everywhere.

Just got off the phone with individual in Alabama. Much of the elderly population was not allowed to vote since they did not have a photo ID. Was told the republicans in the legislature made this requirement and the the old folks don't intend to change their habits.

Was also told Roy Moore spent the weekend out of state when he should have been visiting some counties.

The Democrats executed Politics 101 - no doubt they knew about Moore and his issues, guilty or not, and waited until after the R primary to go public. And I've no doubt Moore knew what was to come. If there was genuine concern on his part of keeping the seat in the "R" column he'd have not even tossed his hat into the ring.

This race was unusual in that I suppose neither party wanted their guy to win. The Jones (who will no doubt be gone in 2020) victory robs Democrats of a target rich Moore and Republican Party in 2018, Moore losing means the Republicans aren't saddled with the "pedophile party" moniker during those same mid-terms.

Something I wonder about, because Moore seemed to be a "drain the swamp" choice much better than Strange- did the Trump White House know of Moore's issues and that's what them to support Strange during the primary? I think it's something worth knowing because it goes to Washington politics always being an inside game. We really never know the many ulterior motives, schemes and manipulations that occur. We're on the wrong side of the looking glass.
