Moore is too ignorant to realize his god is trying to teach him HOW TO LOSE GRACEFULLY AND WITH HONOR.

Alabama has certified the result of Doug Jones’s upset Senate victory, clearing the Democrat’s path to Washington just hours after his Republican rival filed a lawsuit asking for a new election.

On Thursday afternoon, Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey, Attorney General Steve Marshall and Secretary of State John Merrill – all Republicans – signed off on election results from all 67 counties. After late-counted provisional and military ballots were added to the total, Jones defeated Republican nominee Roy Moore by 21,924 votes out of more than 1.3 million cast.

Moore, the first Republican to lose a Senate race in Alabama since 1992, had attempted to stop that vote from being counted. Late Wednesday night, the former state judge filed a legal complaint alleging “election fraud,” and asked the state to consider holding a new election. But shortly before the official certification, Montgomery Circuit Judge Johnny Hardwick denied Moore’s request to stop the process.

Blimey -- this is Roy Moore's spokesperson, after the election result was certified. She appears somewhat unhinged.

https://www.mediaite.com/tv/cnn-inte...ou-having-fun/

She suggests that Moore is considering running against Gov. Kay Ivey in the next gubernatorial election, in retaliation for Gov Ivey's having "fraudulently certified this election," so maybe Alabama will have a Democrat as their governor before too long.

I think we need to fund a kickstarter to get Steven Bannon on board.

Well, see, Moore thinks it's his god-given responsibility to vote -against- women running for office, and I guess that extends to running against them.

It would be nice but it would be an Alabama DINO. The Democrat that beat Moore is probably going to be more like an R once sworn in but it is a symbol that any D won there.

Depends on how you are defining republican - if you mean old school, pre-lets-use-civil-rights-and-religion-to-gain-power republicans, then maybe. Doug Jones is fairly moderate, but to the best of my knowledge, he has been involved in civil rights, legally at least, and I've yet to hear he is all that sexist or racist.

Jones prosecuted both Eric Rudolph (who bombed an abortion clinic and Centennial Park in Atlanta) and KKK members who bombed the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, which was a rallying point for the civil rights movement. I think his credentials are good on civil rights.

A lawyer who once worked for former Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore (R) said in a new interview that he’s friends with Moore's former opponent, Sen.-elect Doug Jones (D), and raised money for Jones's campaign.

The Moores obviously never consulted that lawyer about this, they just used him as a prop without asking for his permission, which is just as telling as if they had called him an ethnic slur.

On the ethnic slur bit, its hard to classify that when it comes to Jewish people because there is a particular group of people who effectively use "Jew" as an ethnic slur. Like in 100% the same context that someone would use "nigger".

Which is why it's handy that there are other tells, such as them treating people like inanimate objects.

How much will it cost to prop him up through the end of 2018?

Too bad it doesn't matter what's part of the annual physical because he is going to throw it in a fireplace and tell the world he is the healthiest human who has ever existed and all the doctors in the world agree, the best doctors.

I believe the results of his annual physical at Walter Reid are public record. He can't throw it in the fire place and say, "I'm in perfect health...."

This came up on Reddit, so take that at what it is.

Its apparently not public record, its just become sort of a standing practice in politeness or transparency or whatever to release it to the public.

Similar to, say, releasing one's tax records?

This is what someone said on Quora:https://www.quora.com/Is-the-preside...-physical-exam (nope, it's just a convention that the results are released to the public).

That having been said, Sarah Sanders was saying last week that "Dr. Jackson, the President's doctor, will give a readout of the exam after it's completed" (it's scheduled for January 12). Nothing to stop him changing his mind, I guess.

There's an interesting, and rather worrying, article in The Atlantic speculating about the problems that would arise were Trump to be diagnosed with a neurological disease but he didn't want to accept the diagnosis: https://www.theatlantic.com/health/a...ecline/548759/

It's not without precedent, of course, for a president to continue in office despite being seriously ill -- it was painfully clear throughout much of Ronald Regan's second term that he was suffering from the early stages of Alzheimer's, at least to me. But given the two men's very different characters, I doubt that were Donald Trump in a similar condition he'd be quite so tractable as his predecessor.

Update on the lawyer thing:
Apparently Jaffe isn't the one they were referring to.
What I had originally read on Twitter, but couldn't find a link to at the time, was correct.
Mr Wishnatsky is a "Messianic Jew".

I tried to quote from the article but my tablet, the site, or both, wasn't cooperating.
