    (CNN)–Roy Moore, the former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice made famous by a Ten Commandments monument, is one step closer to getting his old job back. Moore won 50.14% of the vote on Tuesday in the Republican primary for the Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court.

    "We need leadership in the legal branch," Moore told CNN by phone after fielding congratulatory calls from local officials.

    This isn't the "rise" of anything.

    1) It's Alabama. This isn't especially alarming in Alabama.
    2) The Ten Commandments used to be on public display everywhere... The same way In God We Trust is an empty cultural gesture.
    3) He got a razor thin majority in a Republican primary. To say this is some increase in religiosity is to have no sense of history, especially Southern history.
