William Kristol, whom I have hated for years [a hatred he inherited from his father and mother] made the following very interesting observation on an MSNBC talk show regarding the Alabama election. As anyone knows who was watching the vote tallies, there were more write-in votes than Doug Jones' margin of victory -- somewhat more than 20,000 in all. But there were no other races on the ballot. That means that more than twenty thousand people went to the trouble of going to the polls simply in order not to vote for either Moore or Jones Pretty clearly these were Republicans. So they were so deeply opposed to Moore that, while unable to vote for a Democrat, they felt compelled to go out and not vote for Moore rather than just staying home.
