After looking at last week’s rowdy “Get Bloomberg” debate, Alabama Liberal looks at one race that has gotten even nastier than the Democratic primary: the Alabama Senate race. He does a deep dive into the first ever Alabama senate race to receive national attention, and why each of the “candidates” (which seems more like a… Read More »
AL explains how choosing Doug Jones over Roy Moore has already created jobs for Alabama, and how North Carolina’s homophobic laws have cost them jobs. Plus, how bigotry now scares away business and makes it harder for red-state based companies to recruit top talent…
Why Trump didn’t REALLY want Roy Moore either–albeit for very different reasons. Did Trump recognize his own narcissism, meglomania, and refusal to take orders in a much more ideologically-credible politician?
In a special reunion episode of “A Year Long Conversation,” we dive deep into Doug Jones upset of Roy Moore, what this means for Alabama (and the South), Trump’s first year in office, Russian meddling, predictions for 2018 and 2020, and the paradox of Trump’s Russia-sponsored nationalism, at a time when fascism is having a moment what… Read More »

Many loyal readers have been wondering why I’ve been oddly silent on Alabama’s special-election senate race, only commenting occasionally back when Mo Brooks was still in the race, and before it was officially a two-man race earning the hilariously appropriate moniker “Moore/Strange.” To be sure, both men suck—a corrupt Attorney General quid-pro-quo’d into a senate… Read More »
