Big Media (BM) are full of stories these past few days about how the Jones triumph is reigniting hope for a floundering Democratic Party. Yessiree, first Dem victory in 'Bama in a quarter century and all that.
That's not where I'm seeing the hope.
No, the hope lies in the fact that in the most-hyped election in recent memory, a mere 40% of the eligible voters bothered showing up at the ballot booth.
That means, in spite of all the cartoonish hype generated by the Democentric media, a substantial majority of Alabamians refused to dignify this spectacle with their participation!
This tells me that most voters are wide open to a third party initiative that addresses their real needs and concerns.
There is hope for America!
