Republicans in Alabama voted their consciences Tuesday, and the result is that, for the first time in 25 years, Alabama has a Democrat in a Republican Senate seat that should have been the safest safe space this side of UC-Berkeley.

Despite the crowing from the media and the national party, this doesn’t represent any great realignment or rising wave support for liberal policies in Alabama. If Luther Strange or Mo Brooks had been the candidate, this would’ve been a rubber-stamp footnote of a story. Instead, it represented a “bridge too far” uneasiness with a particular candidate that caused many Republicans to stay home and just enough (nearly 23,000, or 1.7% of the vote) to write in a different candidate, and hand a squeaker victory to Doug Jones over Roy Moore by 49.9% to 48.4%. Even with an Obama-level turnout of black voters for Jones in urban areas, he was unable to top 50% and would have lost handily if so many Republicans hadn’t rejected their own candidate and stayed home.

Texting on the job

By Mike Huckabee

Are you starting to suspect that the investigation of Russian collusion by the Trump campaign is cratering into a corrupt, money-squandering waste of time ($7 million and counting, and the only collusion it’s turned up so far is between Hillary’s campaign and Russia, and its own investigators colluding to defeat Trump)?  Well, never fear: Washington is a bottomless pit of endless, expensive investigations, which are a heck of a lot more fun than actually getting anything done.  Here’s the investigation news round-up so far this week (and it’s only Thursday):

Some of the texts exchanged between two FBI agents who were formerly on Robert Mueller’s investigation team have been released.  Peter Strzok and Lisa Page wrote them throughout the election and were allegedly having an affair (is that now called “colluding” in Washington?)  As expected, they prove both agents despised Trump and called him “idiot,” “loathsome” and other nasty names. Interesting twist for liberals: They also hated Bernie Sanders. Page was apparently such a Hillary Clinton partisan that she texted that she’d just seen her first “Bernie for President” bumper sticker and it “made me want to key the car.”  Strzok texted back that Bernie is an idiot, too.  You know, all this might lead a cynic to suspect that they were biased and perhaps didn’t belong on an impartial investigation of a political figure they openly despised. 


Investigating the special investigator

By Mike Huckabee

Along with all the previous revelations of bias, leaks and cover-ups by Mueller’s team, Trump attorney Jay Sekulow is calling for a special counsel to investigate the special counsel.  When I predicted that very thing a while back, it was sort of a joke, but this shows how difficult it is to make a joke these days that won’t immediately become a real news item.  Sticklers argue that a DOJ inspector general is the official who investigates a special counsel.  Fine, but don’t be surprised when there’s a special counsel to investigate the inspector general who’s investigating the special counsel (I give that joke six weeks before it comes true.)


New line of attack

By Mike Huckabee

Next, as if to tacitly signal that the “Russia collusion” hunters have got nuthin’, Brave New Films, a “documentary” film company associated with Media Matters and George Soros, is promoting three women who accused Donald Trump of sexual harassment during the campaign.  They are repeating their charges and demanding that he resign.  More than 50 female Congress members immediately demanded an investigation into alleged sexual misconduct by Trump, all of which he has denied.

Word of the year

By Mike Huckabee

The Merriam-Webster Dictionary has been leaning more and more PC in recent years, so it’s no surprise that they just declared “feminism” to be the “word of the year” for 2017.  Okay, I can see that.  But here’s a challenge for them: now define it in a way that everyone agrees with.


The moral high ground

By Mike Huckabee

One lesson that I seriously doubt the media will absorb is that it shatters the ridiculous narrative currently being peddled by the Democrats that they are suddenly the “moral high ground” party and it's Republicans who will abandon their moral principles for expediency.  If conservative Christians in Alabama really were hypocrites who practiced DC-style situational ethics, they would’ve pulled the lever for Moore without a second thought.  As for their support of Trump despite sexual harassment allegations against him, perhaps they forgot voters had two choices; and the Democrats were offering up the Clintons, the poster children for sexual misconduct and smearing the victims.  And that was after 25 years of the party telling us that character doesn’t count and sexual behavior is personal and irrelevant for office, specifically to protect the Clintons!
