I have never been so disappointed in an election. They are both scum.
It's really quite sad. I've already abandoned choosing a candidate for the primary. I'm going to throw my vote away and vote for Doug Jones (the Democratic candidate) in the general election because I refuse to vote for Moore or Strange.
I can't vote in the runoff because I voted in the Democratic primary, and I'll be voting for Doug Jones in the election.
At the end of the day, the Republicans have failed to keep almost every promise they've made over the last 20 years. Gingrich & co. had a good run when they were first elected in 96, but since then no matter how much power they've held, nothing has improved. They get to Washington and want to be part of the in crowd instead of doing what we voted them in to do. That's the swamp we need draining and the only way I can see it fixing itself is if the Republicans get destroyed in national elections. I don't think the Democrats have all the answers, but I want to destroy the Republican party as we know it and start over and for that to happen we need to first vote them all out.
The good news is if we elect enough Democrats they'll tick enough people off there will be a chance to get them back out of the way, but the Republicans better not give us retreads or I'll vote against them again.
There was a good al.com article (I think it was yesterday or today) asking if Doug Jones could be the Democratic Guy Hunt. I'd love to see that happen.
I'd be shocked, but you never know.
The Bill Bubba Bussey edorsement commercial for Strange made me want to gag.
The thing that bothers me the most about that commercial is Bubba doesn't even sound like he means what he's saying... the lack of enthusiasm and emotion in his voice is overwhelming.
I just assumed he was trying to sound less "Bubba"
The Luther and Moore commercials are embarrassing to watch. Makes me cringe when they come on, but I guess that is the substance the Alabama electorate wants to hear.
This guy is not only a lunatic, he's human garbage. He's basically every bad thing about the state of Alabama rolled up and put into human form. I'd like to think this would be enough to eliminate him from having a prayer of winning, but I also grew up in Alabama, so I sadly realize this won't hurt him a bit.
