    not that i'm a fan of the TP.. but they are less "dangerous" than the establishment Republicans... especially those massive spenders like Thad.

    if runaway spending is something you support, the mainstream GOP is the place to be... and Thad tops that particular chart.

    True. I find it extremely troubling that there is a worse candidate for MS senate than Cochran.

    Then I would offer that you have a minimal understanding of the American political system. However, nothing pleases me more that watching those on the Right attack each other, so go for it!

    And let's not forget Sen. Trent Lott, who was certainly no TEA-partier.
    South of the 40th parallel these days, you can't tell the difference between Mississippi, Illinois or Missouri--just to name a few .
    Which is one more reason why I never venture south of the 40th parallel, unless it's to some civilized, non right wing place.

    Did you notice the timing a day after the "Cochran Democrats" won out--Boehner trying to soothe TEA-feelings by suing Obama.

    As for the 40th, on my way home from OKC in March, I took US-60 from W>E across lower MO--awesome ride.
    The South has many places where I still want to go .

    And if Democrats actually knew what they were doing, they would have voted for him.
    1. What will the 84,000 DEM voters do that voted the first time, so not yesterday?
    2. Will McDaniel's voters come out in big numbers for Cochran?
    3. Can Childers capitalize on Cochran bragging about being a part of the total accumulated debt?
    4. Will Dems who voted for Cochran yesterday switch back to Childers? ?

    I guess you don't realize that earmarks are a fraction of 1% of federal spending. Moreover, the period of time when Republicans controlled the White House, the House and the Senate was the highest period of earmark spending, debunking the idea that liberals are big spenders as a myth.

    Where exactly is this "massive runaway spending?"



    I am sure you were silent about spending during the previous administration:

    I don't exactly understand what you're trying to say here. Could you rephrase it?

    2. Will McDaniel's voters come out in big numbers for Cochran?
    Not likely, since there won't be enthusiasm among Tea Party voters about Cochran.

    3. Can Childers capitalize on Cochran bragging about being a part of the total accumulated debt?
    Yes, I'd say so. He should, but it doesn't guarantee anything.

    4. Will Dems who voted for Cochran yesterday switch back to Childers? ?
    Ah, yes, the conservative southern Democrats. Childers is a blue dog, so most democrats will likely support him in the general.

    Re: Cochran wins

    I like the heading - "Cochran Campaign Illegally robocalls black democrats..."

    'Illegal,' in an open primary state.....

    Maybe instead of complaining about how the other guy legally got more votes, the sore losers might want to think about how the plan to send poll watchers motivated those black democratic voters to show up?
