Instead of being a smug turd. What does partly born mean? It should be obvious to anyone with a brain that I wasn't talking about literal birthplace.

You were either (a) factually mistaken, or (b) communicating badly. Just move on, bro. Instead you're going to bat for this terrible sentence that looks like drunk posting.

Forums aren't a place I usually proofread every post I make. Sometimes I leave out words. It's cute you of all people are nitting me and telling me to move on.

Idk what fotm is (flavor of the month? I've been here over a year) but I'm happy with my posting here. I can't post longform nearly as often as I did during the election because of work, but I'm proud of things like this thread I started, where I'm learning a lot, and probably others are as well.

Paul D gets benefit of the doubt as one of the Sklansky 7. Although, he was the first one subbed out for an up-and-comer.

re: Alabama Special Election (Roy Moore diddles, GOP thumbs up, Mr. Jones goes to Washington)

Quote:
The Facebook page belonging to Roy Moore, the Republican nominee for US Senate in Alabama, in February included a shared image of a group of black men standing on a destroyed police car during the 2015 Baltimore riots.

Overlaying the image was text that read, "Want to stop riots? Play the National Anthem. They'll all sit down."

The post -- originally shared by Moore's wife with the caption "I doubt it with these people-but worth a try?" -- is one of many inflammatory posts shared on the Republican nominee's Facebook, which is now used to promote his Senate campaign. Moore is facing Democrat Doug Jones in a special election set for December 12
Quote:
Moore's Facebook page also shared an article from the religious conservative website BarbWire.com in July 2015 with the headline, "Conservative Russians Give Moral Lesson to Facebook's Homosexual Propaganda." The article highlighted efforts by some Russians to counter a feature on Facebook that allowed users to overlay a rainbow over their profile picture.

"The strongest reaction came from conservative Russians who overlaid an image of the colors of their country's flag — white, blue and red — over their profile picture," the article read, adding that users also "countered the homosexual #LoveWins hashtag with #pridetobestraight and #pridetoberussian."

The article also described Russia's efforts to crack down on the LGBT community, including the country's so-called "gay propaganda law," as a "strong stance in defense of traditional family values."

Moore's Facebook page also shared a video that falsely alleged former President Barack Obama was a Muslim and shared several posts critical of the LGBT community.
No one ever lost a race in Alabama because they were accused of being racist or homophobic

Typical of an Alabaman to show such disrespect for Boston.

re: Alabama Special Election (Roy Moore diddles, GOP thumbs up, Mr. Jones goes to Washington)

Quote:
Former Alabama judge Roy Moore, a Republican candidate for U.S. Senate, once said publicly that he did not take a “regular salary” from the small charity he founded to promote Christian values because he did not want to be a financial burden.

But privately, Moore had arranged to receive a salary of $180,000 a year for part-time work at the Foundation for Moral Law, internal charity documents show. He collected more than $1 million as president from 2007 to 2012, compensation that far surpassed what the group disclosed in its public tax filings most of those years.
Quote:
The charity has employed at least two of Moore’s children, although their compensation is not reflected in tax filings. Moore’s wife, Kayla, who is now president, was paid a total of $195,000 over three years through 2015.

Came to post that. It will cost him exactly 0 votes even if an indictment is handed down.

Alabama is so ****ed

Not sure if I should get my hopes up or really just take my head out of the oven, but
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017...l-tied-up.html

I always vote, but have never canvassed or given money, so Doug Jones gets some of my money, whoever runs against Darrell Issa gets some of my money, Emily's List? Swing Left? Suggestions?

Don't worry, getting elected in Alabama is a loss for everyone involved.

Roy Moore is a genuine loony. The guy has been removed from the Alabama Supreme Court twice. No general inferences can be drawn from his case.
