I expect Roy Moore to win Alabama’s Senate election this Tuesday by six or seven points. His “Evangelical Christian” supporters, a rock solid 35% of the electorate, will have it no other way. They will bring him home to victory.
I suspect Roy Moore could be caught having sex with an Alabama billy goat high on meth (both of them) and still come out victorious. He could shoot a black man (or a Mexican) on Jackson Street in Birmingham and still vanquish his opponent.
Tuesday evening his supporters will be celebrating his triumph over Doug Jones. But not only that. Together they will have vanquished the mainstream media, pointy headed academics, the LGBT community, Muslims and women complaining of childhood harassment, not to mention atheists and bedeviled Roman Catholics.
If all of this renders Moore’s candidacy a clarifying event we have the Almighty to thank. On December 12 when Hanukkah begins and the Virgin of Guadalupe is venerated, Alabamans will go naked into polling booths for all to see.
