K          “Moore is less.”

J          “And let’s hope that more of us try to keep up with the Jones.”

. . . 

K          “Doug Jones was drawing to an inside straight.  So much had to line up perfectly and fortuitously to produce a victory in ruby-red Alabama.”

J          “Turnout, it turns out, is the key.” 

K          “Although he remains one of America’s greatest political, economic and social commentators, Professor George Carlin’s contention that a citizen should not vote is fundamentally wrong.  There are times when votes are counted and when votes count.”

. . .

J          “Senator Shelby’s statement that he wrote in the name of another Republican on his general election absentee ballot may be the most moral and one of the most consequential actions in his career.”

K          “There may be some semblance of shame and decency in America.”

. . .

K          “The result will lead to the redoubling of efforts to suppress voting and to gerrymander districts.”

. . .

J          “Turnout.”
