I knew that Sessions lost the Alabama Republican Senate primary runoff, but I was curious to see the figures. Turns out that 39.3 percent of Alabama Republicans exercised the franchise for Sessions, which the remaining 60.7 percent picked Tuberville, whose three qualifications are
- he’s Trump’s lap dog,
- he’s a good football coach, and
- he’s good at conning people out of their money.
As to Sessions, well, it couldn’t happen to a nicer guy, and we can all enjoy a good belly laugh at his expense.
But my question is: what motivated almost 40 percent of Alabama Republicans to vote for a person that Orange Man was daily castigating and humiliating?
Could it be that a strong minority of Alabama’s white folks have decided this would be a good time to get off the Trump Train?
Could it be that they were sending Orange Man a message?
