Alabama, I owe you an apology. I just assumed you were going to send a child molester to the United States senate. I didn’t even pay much attention to all the analysis and debate. I figured it was pointless because the race was already decided. But you surprised me.
I’m sorry I thought so poorly of you.
Sure, Doug Jones’s victory is a win for Democrats, but way more importantly it’s a win for decency. Thanks, Alabama, for taking off the partisan blinders and doing the right thing.
