A true glutton for punishment.

Alabama Republican Roy Moore is mulling another run for Senate, potentially seeking to rebound from his 2017 campaign that spiraled into disaster after he was hit with sexual misconduct allegations.
Moore hinted at the possibility on Friday during an interview with American Family Radio’s “Focal Point” show, an evangelical broadcast during which conservative host Bryan Fischer spoke supportively of the failed candidate.
“I’m seriously considering it,” Moore said of another campaign, claiming he faced an unfair playing field against Democrat Doug Jones when the two faced off for the empty seat left by Jeff Sessions when he became President Donald Trump’s attorney general. Moore continued:
I think that [the 2017 race] was stolen. I think that’s been pronounced in the national newspapers ― The New York Times, The Washington Post even has recognized that there was a disinformation campaign going on in September of 2017 by forces outside of Alabama that spent a lot of money not regulated by the [Federal Election Commission] in trying to dissuade Republicans from voting and encourage and enrage Democrats.
Actually, it was all of those stories about Roy Moore trying to bang underage girls that probably sabotaged his 2017 campaign.
However, I would like to say on behalf of all progressives in America that we totally welcome Roy Moore’s attempt to win the Senate seat in 2020.
We really like nothing more than watching a politically damaged Republican loser gearing up to lose all over again.
What can I say, it just warms the cockles of my heart?
