Doug Jones Edges Out Homophobic Child Molester to Win Alabama Senate Seat

The Washington Post reports:

Democrat Doug Jones has won the special election to fill a Senate seat in Alabama, according to exit polls and returns – a shocking upset in a solidly Republican state, in which massive turnout among African American voters helped defeat a candidate enthusiastically backed by President Trump [Roy Moore].

The Associated Press called the race at 10:23 p.m. Eastern time. 

Jones becomes the first Democrat elected to the Senate from Alabama since 1992. The Senate seat came open when Trump chose former Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) to become attorney general earlier this year.

Well, sheet-fahr!

Wouldn've been a LOT more helpful to god, party and country ("in reverse order") i'n he'd'a won.

Nothing much like hanging a big ol' "poster child" for racism, sexism, homophobibia, xenophobia, christian dominiosm, repeal of post-tenth amendmets, homosexual executions [Thank YOU! 88!], et al, ad nauseum.

Now if all y'all queers, freaques, gays, dykes, queers and homoZexuals would'a done gone and voted for the "former future" senator from the great state of alabama, we'd have a better chance of regaining both capital hill and some state houses come '18.

Now we're just gonna have to camppaingn.

Well, sheeet!
