What a wonderful evening last night was in watching the returns come in in real time and seeing the early lead of the republican candidate slowly dwindle down toward the end of the vote count until at the very end Doug Jones surged ahead to a fairly comfortable margin. The republican as of yet has not conceded but the inevitability of the large gap in votes between the two should make his resignation speech come sooner than later. But like his character and behavior in the past this republican candidate cannot seem to do the right thing when the right thing needs doing. However he exits this election though he will not be the victor, that belongs to the vote winner Doug Jones.
Going forward now we have one less senator in the majority for the republican party and their lead in the senate is now down to 51-49, as soon as Doug Jones is sworn in. However that will probably not be until after the senate takes up voting on the horrendous tax bill. Regardless though, republicans will also find that passing that tax bill by the end of this month will be more than they can accomplish even with their current 52 votes in the senate. As last night should have been clear to them but we know it wasn't is that the American electorate is not on their side and the further they push to go against the will of the people the further they will find themselves being unceremoniously dumped into the trash bin of history. If you don't believe me just ask Roy Moore.
