    Sounds like Dems across the country are disappointed that TEAs didn't win, especially in your CO,
    which would have dragged Rep. Gardner's campaign down for the Senate .

    I'm wondering, Democrats... why do you refer to every person to the right of you as "far right" or "ultra far right loons"... etc..it's evident in nearly everyone of your posts.

    We learned it from you righties in the early 1980's, after righties started the cultural war against far lefties.

    i don't think the republican base is going to forgive Cochran for appealing to African american voters to to vote for him. i heard that mcdanials might consider a write-in campagin to get on the november ballot. if that happens... then Childers has a shot at winning.

    The RINOs and Liberals can rest easy now.
    All it takes is one vote over 50%. That's called democracy.

    Only problem is, not enough independents know this so they can keep the kooks from winning.
    thank you for expressing this sane observation
    scary when folks with whom i am normally aligned become outraged because dems voted to prevent the biggest kook in the campaign to run for office in the general election

    mah, he's not my congrescritter, so it doesn't really matter.
    It does matter. But that's for another thread.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    careful what you wish for. mississippi - and the nation - could have ended up with a kkkook in office

    Hopefully this is a wake up call for Cochran. He's not going to win in November without the folks that voted for McDaniel.

    When you're the GOP winner, and hard leftist are happy you won, the country loses.
