Breitbart: Blows Fall in Alabama

Breitbart news, in-house journal of the alt-right and home of former Trump insider Steve Bannon, has quoted Evelyn Waugh in a story gloating about the results of the Alabama primary earlier this week:

In his 1945 novel Brideshead Revisited, author Evelyn Waugh describes a main character’s latest crisis as “a blow, expected, repeated, falling upon a bruise, with no smart or shock of surprise, only a dull and sickening pain and the doubt whether another like it could be borne.”… “A dull and sickening pain” is exactly what McConnell and his allies in the GOP establishment and donor class must have felt Tuesday night as they watched their chosen candidate, former D.C. lobbyist Luther Strange, get crushed underfoot by Moore, despite outspending Moore by as much as 10-1.
