There are a lot of takes on this election in Alabama, and why a Democrat won this time around. Conservative Review’s Chris Pandolfo who normally presents highlights of the “Great One” Mark Levin (hey he is the boss after all) give us six “dead-wrong takes.” I agree with most of what Pandolfo says, with the biggest one being character. I guess when it comes to certain candidates character does matter.
Maybe Alabama has always stuck with that rule, but the rest of the country chose to ignore that more/less when they were upset with George H.W. Bush’s betrayal on “no new taxes,” and give Bill Clinton a try and two terms. Granted the elder Bush like any of them deserve to be humbled, even if they never honestly repent. As with Hoover, the Bushes (father and one of his sons) ushered in very radical progressive Democrats that did more damage to America than any Republican could. The Republicans just micromanage the chaos the Dems create.
Wednesday morning, following the upset victory of Democrat Doug Jones in the Alabama special election for U.S. Senate, political pundits and Twitter election “experts” are professing to know everything about why Republican candidate Roy Moore lost. The election takes are hotter than the sun, and everyone has begun prognosticating what the election results mean for President Trump, Congress, and the country at large as we head into the 2018 midterm elections.
Some takes are insightful. Some inciting. And some are dead wrong. Don’t look for any single person to have a comprehensive understanding of what happened Tuesday night. But guard yourself against some preconceptions that were proven misguided and some election reactions and predictions that are missing the point.
