"My Eyes Just Burning, Ain't Nobody Crying": Doug Jones Wins

Whew. That was way too close for comfort. And yeah, the country's in a damn dismal state to have come to this. But not only does Doug Jones become the first Democrat to win a Senate seat in Alabama in 25 years; his win in the name of dignity is a take-no-prisoners rejection of all the hate-mongering, gay-bashing, race-baiting, sexual-assaulting, serial lying crap of losers Moore and Trump and Bannon too, as well as a victory for all the women, African-Americans and formerly disenfranchised people of Alabama who joyfully, defiantly stepped up to make their voices heard. Forward to the mid-terms, and hopefully beyond. And once and for all, to Moore in all his evil: "Fuck you and the horse you (badly) rode in on."
