The most important lesson from Judge Roy Moore’s U.S. Senate loss to Doug Jones in Alabama is that the reliable red state is dead.

It died a slow, bloody death.  And its murderers were Republicans.

“Voter fraud!”

“The media!”

“Mitch McConnell!” 

Jones is a NeverTrump ally

Unlike a good bourbon, these rationalizations haven’t aged well.  Perhaps they played some part, and yes, Moore was a terrible candidate.  At least Republicans didn’t attribute Jones’s victory to Vlad Putin or libelous dossiers chock-full of details akin more to pornography than to politics.
