Scary, nasty and armed: the Roy Moore I knew

In the restaurant, Moore was brusque and charmless, regarding me as he might a stain.

It certainly would have. "There is a new pressure for institutions to finally get this right". And America is more progressive, optimistic, generous, welcoming, innovative, inclusive, young and female than Trump and the minority that currently have the say in Washington.

"We already made that choice", he said. "I don't know what the margin will be after that", Merrill said. "The numbers that we saw tonight are going to change".

As Jones closed his remarks he quoted Dr. King, "The moral arc of the universe is long but it bends towards justice". Even as the special prosecutor's noose appears to close around the president's inner circle, party leaders mimic Mr. Trump's denunciations of the investigation.

"The fact that we're having these conversations now, in such an audible way, means there are great changes in our future", Nessel said. There are dissenting voices, who are quickly hustled offstage, but they leave behind haunting warnings. "It's time for Democrats to get of their asses ... this is a wake-up call for Democrats to do better for black people and poor white people". His victory in deep red Alabama, a state where 48% of voters approve of Donald Trump, should warn lawmakers of just how toxic the president's political brand is becoming.

The leader of the Alabama Republican party has declared the state's Senate race over, contradicting the claims of his party's own candidate.

Moore, of course, was quite wrong in his belief that America has always been an entirely Christian country: the founding fathers - lawyers themselves and contemporaries of Blackstone - specifically excluded it. They believed more in John Locke and the Enlightenment. Mike Huckabee, the former Governor of Arkansas and a fellow staunch Christian, urged Mr Moore to bow out. The number of people of working age who were classified as economically inactive also increased by 115,000. Moore joined President Donald Trump in harshly criticizing NFL players who chose to kneel on the field during the pre-game national anthem to protest racial injustice.

Moore's defeat at the hands of Democrat Doug Jones on Tuesday night is a damaging setback to President Trump and the GOP's agenda for 2018 and beyond, but it is Bannon, the former White House chief strategist, who could suffer most immediately. Don Siegelman and Republican challenger Bob Riley. Luther Strange against Roy Moore in Alabama's Senate election, saying in a predawn tweet that "Roy worked hard but the deck was stacked against him". "No vote, no majority is worth losing our honor, our integrity". He and his allies continue to insist that all the women who have accused him are politically motivated liars, and that their claims were litigated in the 2016 election.

"All it does is pour gasoline on top of it". Step by step, Republicans embraced a politics that was post-truth and post-ethics.

But, if the conference committee doesn't deliver a compromise bill on time-and so far, this rushed tax bill has missed deadlines as negotiations have broken down-that could delay the vote until Jones arrives. Victory for Moore might have been enough to draft in new recruits and sway some Republican pragmatists to, at the least, make a show of bending to his instincts.
