Roy Moore was thrashed in the Republican primary for governor of Alabama, as expected. With 97% of the precincts reporting, Bob Riley was leading 67-33. Here’s my favorite quote, from an MSNBC article:
Riley said voters saw state government has changed while he has been in office. “People appreciated the difference in the level of corruption we had in the past and the corruption we don’t have today,” he said. His challenger, Moore, said: “God’s will has been done.”
If I were you, Roy, I’d be a little pissed off about this. I mean, you stood up for the Big Guy for years, and it’s his will that you get a Jerry Quarry-level beating like this? You put up His commandments in your courtroom, you even lost your job for this guy, and this is how he treats you? I don’t know how to tell you this, Roy, but I think you’re in an abusive relationship. Is there somewhere you can go, maybe a relative’s house or something?
