Winners and Losers


Who would have thought that we'd be sitting and tracking every granular detail about one race in Alabama! Congratulations to the people in that state who had the courage to cast votes unbound by past tradition, the fortitude to get out to the voting booths, and the insight to select the far better candidate. Let's hope this is a roadmap of strategy to pursue in 2018 and 2020.

Keep in mind, however, that the national map is still daunting for progressives. There remains a lot to overcome in congressional and state elections nationwide. And Trump still remains in office.

Yet it does feel that a new door has been cracked open tonight. This is partly because of the special election and also because Trump has not only reached a new low (for him) of behavior but has also revealed his political uselessness.

The Alabama result makes Trump a double loser, having failed to back the right person twice in this state election. His pal, toxic Steve Bannon didn't do much better either.

Moreover, USA Today has written this about the President in its current editorial:

With his latest tweet, clearly implying that a United States senator would trade sexual favors for campaign cash, President Trump has shown he is not fit for office.

A president who would all but call Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand a whore is not fit to clean the toilets in the Barack Obama Presidential Library or to shine the shoes of George W. Bush.

The time has come for leading politicians to demand Trump's resignation and, failing that, to call for impeachment. Can any sitting Senator abide a president who has called his or her colleague a prostitute?

The man has no political value to anyone and no moral value by any measure in a decent society. It is nice that Roy Moore is leaving the political scene. Donald Trump must be the next to go.
