Unbelievably, after what feels like a years-long Senate campaign, Doug Jones has vanquished the pedophile, Roy Moore, in the Alabama Senate race, costing the Senate another Republican Senator. This is huge, folks. It’s huge not just for Alabama, but a huge bellwether for Democrats in 2018. Wow. Just wow. There was a huge turnout among Democrats — particularly black voters — and as Dustin noted on Twitter, this country does not deserve for black people to save its ass again (but also, thank you!).
The one downside is that Mitch McConnell has already stated that he won’t swear Jones in until the New Year, so if the Republicans force a vote on the tax plan before 2018, Luther Strange will still hold the seat.

In a year of so much WTF perhaps a cookie sporting the Me Too hashtag combined with The Weinstein Company logo is the perfect December treat? But probably not.

In other WTFery that was discussed yesterday, The Hollywood Foreign Press Association failed to nominate The Big Sick, Jordan Peele, or anyone (Tiffany Hilarious Haddish) from Girls Trip for the Golden Globes. Jada has some things. to. say. about. that. - (Buzzfeed)
The garbage fire that is the Alabama special election is happening tonight (or happened already, depending on when you read this). Now it’s just a waiting game. While you’re waiting, watch some videos of Alabamians who’ve had their voting rights restored getting to vote again. - (Think Progress)
So Meghan’s going to have to curtsy to Duchess Kate. As an American with a cunty sister-in-law, that would be awkward as hell. Don’t know if it will be for Meg and Kate or not. Life is different for them. - (Celebitchy)
There are some less than stellar looks that Kate Hudson is sporting here, but yeah, the shiny purple scrubs look is my least favorite, and that’s saying something. - (GFY)
Kristy said, “The Runner-Up for word of the year was Hugbox.” Dustin replied, “GET OUT. That’s hilarious.
Oh. You were making a joke! It was a good one.” I think he was seriously bummed.
Ingres77 has been an integral part of CBR9 - he has compiled an enormous stats round-up every month, and he has been a prolific reviewer. He wonders though, why more Cannonballers haven’t read and reviewed one of his favorites, Dennis E. Taylor’s We Are Legion (We Are Bob). It’s a Scalzi-esque cross between the hard science of The Martian and the nerdy pop culture of Ready Player One. Have you heard about this book? (Cannonball Read 9)
