    Speaking of the Hizzonor Judge Moore:

    Did anyone else notice that that the horse he rode in on (heh, heh) to the polling station was named Sassy, as was a magazine marketed to teen-aged girls?

    Just askin'.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sassy_(magazine)

    Edit - Seriously, er , or at least somewhat seriously though, consider the idea that the GOPoT&M actually won because they will not have a live albatross named Moore hanging around the neck of every candidate in 2018, while the Dems won very little; one vote in the Senate and a few fleeting moments of feel-good.
    Keep your stinkin' government hands off my Medicare.

    Shades of former POTUS candidate Gary Hart cheating on his wife on a yacht called "Monkey Business".

    No, the tax bill will take care of the Republican's screwing themselves over. That's a pretty big albatross.
    And with a super-slim majority every seat becomes that much more important.

    The tweets from Dolt45 this AM should be epic. I’m sure he will make us all proud to be Americans!

    I am pleasantly surprised. Even better, the Rs are fighting amongst themselves as to who to blame. Gotta like it!

    When you put a crappy candidate forward expect to lose. Just ask the Dems and Hillary.

    The Onion had a headline something like "Roy Moore to Retire From Politics; Plans to Spend Free time With Someone Else's Daughter."

    George, this was the narrative on at least two right wing fascist radio programs today. “Thank God Roy Moore didn’t win because it would have hurt the Republican brand... “

    While somewhat true these same fascists were getting out the vote for him on Monday and Tuesday. Hilarious.

    I wouldn’t have not voted for him because of the allegations. Allegations that are almost as old as I am. If we’re going to let unprovable allegations shape our future elections, due process be damned, then we’re in trouble. I wouldn’t have voted for him because he has serious issues separating church and state, and he’s a pretend cowboy. Pretend cowboys are f-ing weird.

    Don't forget that Moore was removed, twice, from the Alabama Supreme Court. Once for commissioning a 10 Commandments Monument, and once for telling "until further decision by the Alabama Supreme Court, the existing orders of the Alabama Supreme Court that Alabama probate judges have a ministerial duty not to issue any marriage license contrary to the Alabama Sanctity of Marriage Amendment or the Alabama Marriage Protection Act remain in full force and effect."

    THANK YOU.

    Having known (a very few) real cowboys, there is nothing worse than the faux cowpoke. Cool buckle. You must be a software engineer.

    Even if Jones hadn't molested a 14 year old girl (that he picked up at a custody hearing, no less) and hadn't disregarded numerous federal court orders, the cowboy hat and the horse would have forced me to vote for the lib.

    Alabama. Cattle Country, USA!

    Well, Alabama is ranked 25th in cattle population.

    If a hipster from Seattle can play a banjo, I can wear a cowboy hat as I tend my 15 head. ;)

    I will murder anyone and their entire bloodline to prevent the wearing of cowboy boots by lawyers in court.
  • Shawn C.Shawn C. Senior Member Posts: 5,298 Senior Member
    My in-laws now wear cowboy boots. They live in suburban SLC. It is disturbing af.
  • MikeAMikeA Senior Member Posts: 2,462 Senior Member
    Almost as bad is the hipsters with the beards... Yea, I went there.
  • Shawn C.Shawn C. Senior Member Posts: 5,298 Senior Member
    They are both abhorrent but at least the hipster thing is somewhat unique. The K-Mart cowboys are trying to emulate something. I mean, how many people do you see dressing up like astronauts or steel workers?
