Wacky write-in votes from Alabama special election really aren't that funny

Against all odds, Democrat Doug Jones was elected to the U.S. Senate near the beginning of this month, beating Republican candidate and alleged pedophile Roy Moore.

After narrowly winning the recent Alabama senatorial special election against still-ranting sore loser, overt racist, and accused child molester Roy Moore, Senator-elect Doug Jones appeared on Late Night With Seth Meyers on Thursday, and was the very picture of “not-insane, creepy, and horrible” that the good people…

After black voters in Alabama voted for Democrat Doug Jones and against bigot and accused child molester Republican Roy Moore to the tune of 98 per cent, Late Night With Seth Meyers’ writer, performer, future sitcom star, and general force of charm and delight in the world Amber Ruffin took to the stage for an Alabama…

After beating Roy Moore, Doug Jones walked off to "Teach Me How To Dougie"

If we’re all being honest, a lot of people didn’t really expect Doug Jones—a Democrat—to beat Republican Roy Moore—an accused pedophile—in Alabama’s special election this week to fill Jeff Sessions’ Senate seat.

We take our moments of joy where we can get them these days, whether it’s an occasional bout of presidential mush-mouth, or an Alabama Republican going slack-jawed with horror at a concept that’s so clearly, painfully outside his worldview that it appears to be breaking his brain.

With the special election for an Alabama senate seat coming down to the for-some difficult choice between an alleged child molester, outspoken bigot, and twice-fired disgraced judge on the one hand, and someone who is none of those things (and who, among other accomplishments, successfully prosecuted the KKK) on the…

When the news broke earlier in the day that U.S. Senate candidate from Alabama, sexual assaulter of underage girls (allegedly), and noted bigot (empirically) Roy Moore had taken umbrage at a satirical stunt by Jimmy Kimmel Live! writer Tony Barbieri (as his Sacha Baron Cohen-style provocateur character, Jake Byrd),…

Man’s man Roy Moore just picked a fight with Jimmy Kimmel on Twitter

Roy Moore is a bigoted, homophobic birther who’s been twice-fired from being Chief Justice Of The Alabama Supreme Court and is now accused of being a serial pedophile by eight different women.

Trump: "Women are very special," but not so special that he won't continue to support Roy Moore

Dear women of America: Good news! Donald Trump thinks you’re special, and not just in a “happens to be his daughter Ivanka” kind of way.
