Great that Moore lost but shitty that Jones was the guy to beat him. His victory really reinforces the democratic party of courting big out of state money, shifting right, and giving minorities only token support without any meaningful promises. Once again we had an election were democrats put up the shittiest candidate that they thought could win and in this case the bet payed off and he just barely squeaked by.

How is Jones the shittiest candidate? I'm ignorant of him other than what's trotted out in articles from the last month or two.

And are you attributing his "barely squeaking by" to his shittiness as a candidate? To me, he barely squeaked by because he's a Democrat in the one the most thoroughly Republican states in the Union.
