Two relative political newcomers were sworn into the nation’s most elite deliberative body Wednesday, with both Democrats vowing to work toward bipartisanship in a deeply divided U.S. Senate.

Tina Smith, who resigned at midnight as Minnesota’s lieutenant governor, becomes the state’s junior senator. She takes office a day after Democratic Sen. Al Franken resigned amid sexual misconduct claims. She becomes the 22nd woman in this Senate, a record number

Doug jones got there on voter fraud and interfering with an election using lying political whores . He will be defeated in 3 years like a whipped dog by judge Moore.

Bipartisanship: (democrat style)

We hope to work together as you capitulate on everything to implement our agenda.

Work with us. Come on over to our side. Everything will be swell.

If Moore runs again in three years he'll lose again in three years. Mo Brooks would win in a landslide.

And Backstabbing Republicans like Richard Shelby who urged Alabama voters not to vote for Moore.

He will be defeated in 3 years like a whipped dog by judge Moore.

I would like to believe that this could be true, but I very much doubt that Judge Moore will be able to overcome the smears that have been put on him. I see far too many people deliberately repeating lies about what happened in Alabama, and there are a great many people who simply want to believe things that are not true.

I hate to say it, but I think Roy Moore is effectively done as a potential candidate. The only possibility of reversing this is discovering proof that those two women are liars and getting that proof out to the public.

I think we agree on something.

I was wondering if the following scenario could have been possible.

Sessions resign as Attorney General since he appears to be useless there and retake his senate seat. What could have been the latest he could have done this?

Jones had Biden as his escort today as opposed to the traditional other Senator from the state.

So Jones reaches across the aisle and slapped the shit out of Shelby. Serves the old fool right.

I think Judge Moore is finished.

He was already teetering near too old.

Isn’t it ironic?

Jones defeated a guy who was falsely accused of fondling a teen.

Then Jones picked Biden to escort him, a man we have hours of unedited video on which he fondles little girls repeatedly.

That’s just a big FU from Doug Jones to every decent (and even not so decent) person in the great state of Alabama.

I just hope Moore pursues legal action against his accusers and puts to shame those in the GOP who supported their claims.
