A small step back from the Room of Untruth and Illogic

Don Shearn over at Don's Basement ran across this clip from the Twilight Zone, the television series created by Rod Sterling that ran on CBS from 1959-1963.
You walk into this room at your own risk, . . . the room where logic is an enemy and truth is a menace.

It is not a new world, it is simply an extension of what began in the old one. 
The voter turn-out in Alabama's special Senate election for the seat vacated by Jeff Sessions was higher than expected: 38 percent of registered voters came out to choose Doug Jones over Roy Moore.  Not impressive, but considerably more than expected for this special election.

Something for the Democratic Party in Alabama to build on.

Donald Trump walked through that door described by Rod Sterling the day he decided to start campaigning with his ludicrous birther untruth. Sixty-three million voters followed him through that door. Trump's illogic, the GOP Congressional majority's illogic and untruths, . . . they continue to stalk and menace the country.

Tonight, the voters of Alabama took one small step, backing away from this new world of untruth and illogic.

It's a small step away from the New World, back towards the Old; its a small step for the country to build on . . .
