Roy Moore And Francisco Franco

You might recall–if you are of a certain age–a funny continuing event on Saturday Night Live.

“Generalissimo Francisco Franco is still dead” was a catchphrase that originated in 1975 during the first season of NBC’s Saturday Night Live. It was a mockery of the weeks-long media reports of his impending death.

Now we may have to resort to a new such phrase in the light of Roy Moore failing to concede the election he lost on Tuesday.

Moore, who lost by 20,715 votes, is not in a position to ask for a recount. Alabama law does not trigger a recount unless the margin between two candidates is less than 0.5 percent; according to the latest count by the Associated Press, the margin between Jones and Moore is 1.5 percent.

“Roy Moore still just a diddler” might be a new line for contemporary viewers to laugh at each weekend until he stops his antics.
