Interesting opinion floating around: Republicans in Congress are hoping like Hell Roy loses. Because if he wins they either have to expel him (and piss off all the Trump fans and Alabama voters) or not and get to wear him like a stinking dead albatross around their necks in future elections.

A Real Live Senator Moore could be the greatest thing ever for a Democratic sweep and subsequent impeachment. And you think everybody in the Senate hates Ted Cruz...

They already have so many stinking dead albatross' around their necks they can barely stand. It hasn't slowed them down a bit and I don't expect Senator Moore will either.

Seems the stinking albatross lei had some effect here. Assuming the proposed recount does not serve to further fowl the atmosphere..

If this character Moore is indeed disposed from the scene it will be a great day. But if that proves to be true I also fear it’s just for a moment. These people are not going away--and they are not going away without a fight to the Finish.

Seems #MeToo is evolving into something permanent and dangerous to the scumbags:

Hollywood Heroines Launch Initiative To Fight Sexual Harassment And Inequality

Quote:
Over 300 women who work in television, film and theater launched a far-reaching campaign Monday that includes the creation of a legal defense fund to help less-privileged women come forward about sexual misconduct they’ve experienced.

The Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund, backed by $13 million in donations from over 200 donors, is spearheaded by high-profile attorneys Roberta Kaplan and Tina Tchen, who previously worked as former first lady Michelle Obama’s chief of staff.

Tchen pointed to the #MeToo movement as a major catalyst for the initiative.

Donnie: They're coming for you...
