Some Good News from Alabama

While it's early yet, and things could and will change from now through the June 6 primary, incumbent (and sane) Republican governor Bob Riley of Alabama is currently managing to hold off an intra-party challenge by ousted former state supreme court justice Roy Moore (he of giant Ten Commandments rock notoriety). A new Mobile Register-University of Alabama poll of likely GOP primary voters showed Riley with a 56-28% lead over the demagogic theocrat Moore.

Riley is also walloping Moore in the fundraising department; he currently has raised more than eight times as much money.

We can hope this trend continues, and that Moore gets the drubbing he deserves at the polls in June. His fifteen minutes were up a long time ago.

If he loses the primary, do you think he'll try and run as an Independent spoiler?

Not sure, Stygius. But I certainly wouldn't put it past him!
