    not even sure why this thread got bumped but just a heads up there is no such thing as a republican that’s a “great person” (or even mediocre person) in the year 2022

    Somehow every political issue relates to the border.

    Really brave of residents of states that don’t share a border with Mexico (Gulf of).

    Lost in all of this she could have easily run as independent and fight the shift of the Republican Party into outright fascism and instead doubled down

    We have to border Florida and I would like to put up a wall until we figure out what the hell is going on

    Why would it matter how much money/weaponry we send to Ukraine? We don't pay for the wall I thought.

    Forget that, she could've just run as an only slightly RWNJ well to the center of Mo Brooks. But instead, she chose to try to out-RWNJ one of the biggest RWNJ's in congress.

    Being the most RWNJ just means more around here.

    It's impossible to be a bigger RWNJ than Mo Brooks.

    Breitbart cultivated him in a petri dish.

    It was definitely a risk, but Brooks is historically a pretty poor campaigner. She was going to have to pander; that was a fact of life. No anti-Trumper or even Trump neutral can win here, but she's gone beyond that.

    I don't watch much TV, but the guy we are live in caretaker for watches all the game shows through out the day, and the other day in rapid succession the commercials were 4 political ads back to back. I was cooking in the kitchen, and may have contemplated stabbing my ear drums with a knife. It was a Kay Ivey then Mike Durant then Britt then Brooks :drunk::drunk::killme:

    I'll hold out hope that this campaign was the low part and maybe she'll do like her boss and just funnel us lots of money and solid federal judges.

    I get it. We're talking degrees of awful here.

    I'm just hoping she'd join up with somebody more like Tom Cotton than Cruz/Hawley.

    I'll just relatively miss Shelby.

    Alabama politics? Completely incapable. We have the dumbest senator in America. We have who I would say is arguably the most anti-democratic representative in America. It's beyond depressing.

    Sassy does plenty of things. They’re just the same bad things Cotton, Cruz, and Hawley actually do, but with a different public-facing persona. This concept of degrees applies more to personalities than actions/inactions. Also why Rs are so effective at minority rule. Lock-step.

    Yeah, I know. He at least voted for impeachment though. In this state you’d fare worse than Tom Rice if you did. Alas, at least my representative is a Dem.

    Not if you can read/comprehend.

    We’re talking about what is actually achievable for Alabama because of how bad our options are. Would I take Sasse over Tuberville or Britt/Brooks? Absolutely

    I can’t imagine Sasse would have a political career in Alabama these days. He might not have one in Nebraska much longer.

    Shelby basically hand-picked our district court judges and did an excellent job. We have a really good federal bench, as shocking as it may be.
