Shortly after the Alabama Senate special election, Roy Moore was allegedly seen standing outside waiting for Doug Jones’ victory tour bus. When Jones emerged, a battered and desperate Moore began singing to the senator-elect and his entourage.

Yes, Moore is still trying to convince the lawn-chair-sitting, mud-truck-racing, Budweiser-drinking folks of Alabama that he’s still got it. Moore has vowed to fight the good fight, and he doesn’t care that the election is over and his better days are behind him; he ain’t conceding.

And, get this, Moore is out here begging for money for an “Election Integrity Program” that would look into alleged “reports of potential voter fraud.”

“The integrity of this election—and future elections—is hanging in the balance,” reads an email that Moore’s campaign team sent to HuffPost.

Here’s how the news site reports Moore’s unwillingness to get his Frozen on and let it go:

In the days since Jones’ surprising election win, Moore has repeatedly insisted to his supporters that the “battle rages on.”

“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,” Moore said in a video released last Wednesday.

Officials have said that it was very unlikely those final votes would change the outcome of the election.

But why would Moore let facts stop him?

After his historic win, Jones said: “Alabama has spoken. It was a close election, there’s no question about that, but elections can be close sometimes. But now it’s time to heal. Now it’s time to move on and go to the next thing.”

Moore was reportedly last seen crying on the doorsteps of Alabama voters vowing to make it work if they would just take him back.

It’s amazing how much stupid shit one person can say in a paragraph, but let me try to break this down.

“We have stopped prayer in our schools,” Moore said in his statement. “We have killed over 60 million of our unborn children. We have redefined marriage and destroyed the basis of family, which is the building block of our country. Our borders are not secure. Our economy is faltering under an enormous national debt. We have a huge drug problem. We have even begun to recognize the right of a man to claim to be a woman, and vice versa. We have allowed judges and justices to rule over our Constitution, and we have become slaves to their tyranny. Immorality sweeps over our land.”

“We have stopped prayer in our schools,”

Prayer in school was stopped because it was unconstitutional. Let me repeat that because it’s important...forcing children to worship your god in a public school is a violation of their constitutional rights. Basically you’re shitting on the Constitution.

“We have killed over 60 million of our unborn children.”

There’s no such thing as unborn child. A child does not exist until it is born. The word you’re looking for is fetus. F-E-T-U-S

We have redefined marriage and destroyed the basis of family, which is the building block of our country.

Marriage has always been about two consenting adults agreeing to share their lives and responsibilities with each other. Nothing changed.

Our borders are not secure.

You live in Alabama, the closest national border is Cuba. More terrorists have come into the US from Canada than from Mexico so why is the focus on national security about the southern border?

Our economy is faltering under an enormous national debt.

Suddenly national debt is a big deal not 1 day after republicans voted to increase it by 1.5 trillion dollars?

We have a huge drug problem.

I agree, we do have a huge drug problem. The problem is that people like you have made non-addictive substances illegal just so you could arrest more minorities, but made it completely legal for billion dollar pharmaceutical companies to flood the market with lethal and addictive pain killers.

We have even begun to recognize the right of a man to claim to be a woman, and vice versa

So allowing people to live their own lives however they see fit (as long as they’re not harming anyone else) is a problem for you? Why?

We have allowed judges and justices to rule over our Constitution, and we have become slaves to their tyranny.

The irony and hypocrisy displayed here burn with the fire of a thousand suns. You were TWICE removed from the bench for failure to uphold the fucking Constitution because you thought you knew better than the Supreme Court.

If there was any justice in the world, Roy Moore would be getting fucked with pineapple 8 hours a day instead of still trying to hold public office.
