The Alabama Special Election

I woke up on Wednesday morning to a chorus of exuberance over Doug Jones' victory in the Alabama special election. The results were heartening, don't get me wrong, but there seemed to be something disingenuous about the revelry, especially in light of the fact that almost half of Alabamians had voted for a man facing multiple accusations of sexual assault. Here's my short rant on the subject.

Edit: Ezra Klein said it better here.
