The right is falling apart online over Roy Moore’s loss

A Republican managed to lose in deeply red Alabama on Tuesday and… well…

That’s literally the horse Roy Moore rode in on—Sassy—getting Crying Jordan’d on its way out the door.

Moore’s loss to Democrat Doug Jones was momentous for numerous reasons. While Jones in the Senate could possibly grind the Republican agenda to a halt, the win came as cathartic at the end of an abjectly awful 2017. During his race, Moore was revealed to be a racist, retrograde xenophobe who was accused of molesting numerous teenage girls. And because of our twisted politics, Republicans still supported him, a literal vote against human decency.

The win by Jones—who prosecuted Klan members—felt something like righting an America that had gone off the rails.

After Roy Moore said in a speech that the vote count was too close to concede—despite having clearly lost—people lept on that irony with glee.

But for all the joy on the left, it was the right that was melting down online, rife with excuses and blame. Former White House counselor Steve Bannon got his share of it.

Some thought Moore lost because he didn’t turn this into a referendum on the non-existent nefarious parts of government.

The right wasn’t taking it well at all. Bill Mitchell was in fact surprised people came out to vote against an accused pedophile, diving into a Louise Mensch-style conspiracy theory about turnout.

President Donald Trump, for his part, wanted people to know that he always thought Roy Moore was going to lose.

This election turned things around so much that somehow Mike Huckabee was the conservative voice of reason.

But perhaps the real loser of the evening was conservative agitator Mike Cernovich, owned by his own call to screengrab a prediction.

You’ll be seeing that one a lot today.
