Roy Moore continues to defy reality

After losing the Alabama special senate election two days ago, Roy Moore remains stuck in the Denial stage of the Kubler-Ross Model of Grief. In a cartoonishly self-important video statement released this morning, Moore's eyes unwaveringly tracked a teleprompter while he recited, "We are indeed in a struggle to preserve our republic, our civilization, and our religion, and to set free a suffering humanity. In this race, we have not received the final count​ to include ​military and provisional ballots. This has been a very close race and we are awaiting certification by the secretary of state."

Is it really that surprising that a man who was banned from a shopping mall to stop him from pursuing teenage girls would refuse to bow out gracefully from an election he lost?

Alabama's Secretary of State winner said the election winner Doug Jones' chances of not being certified were "highly unlikely."
