    Probably the same reason that many on the right think Obama is a liberal.... when you are out on the wing, the fuselage looks far to the left (or far to the right, when sitting on the left wing)...

    Wait...you're stating Obama's what.... a moderate liberal because he's moved to the center?
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Here's the deal. Cochran can thank McDaniel for the heavy African American turnout that put him over the top. The strategy was a long shot, but McDaniel fueled the fire when he announced that he was sending poll watchers into only black areas of Mississippi. Blacks saw that as intimidation, and remembering what Mississippi used to be like, came out in force. Had McDaniel not done this, he probably would have won. The strategy of sending poll watchers only to black areas, even though the State of Mississippi denied access to those poll watchers, backfired on McDaniel in a major way.

    Cochran out flanked McDaniel fair and square.

    The big story today is that McDaniel is refusing to concede and plans to take this to court. Talk about butthurt, or should I call that bodyhurt?..... Since your whole body is gonna hurt if you are an asshole.

    I don't think we have heard the last of McDaniel.

That said, I don't pretend to really no Mississippi politics..... its one of a few states that I have never even been to (nor do I have any desire to go).... so, I acknowledge my Mississippi ignorance.
    I'm two doors over from Mississippi and not much news gets from Mississippi to Georgia. At least political inside news. In the latest polls from Mississippi before the runoff Cochran was beating Childers by 17 and McDaniel was ahead of Childers by 12.

    Here is what one Mississippi republican insider said, Im not surprised by the result. I believed all the time that Sen. McDaniel got all the votes he was going to get in the first primary."

    For the pro-Cochran alliance, the race came down to a huge strategic gamble: That the universe of Mississippians who wanted to see Cochran back in the Senate was substantially larger than the group that voted in the primary - and that rather than serving as a death knell for Cochran, the June 3 ballot would serve instead as a wake-up call for apathetic Mississippians.

    Most controversially - and perhaps most importantly - the Mississippi super PAC formed to support Cochran's reelection shifted its resources dramatically from television advertising to get-out-the-vote operations.

    But this time, the Mississippi Conservative PAC didn't spend a dime on television or radio. Instead, the group - headed by Republican National Committeeman Henry Barbour -spent untold sums identifying and turning out longer-shot voters, including non-Republicans and African-Americans who were unlikely to have participated in the first vote.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    McDaniel should have know better than to try and beat the establishment at its own game. Tea Party needs to stop supporting the GOP, period.

    And, if that happens, the Tea Party will never win any election, they are topped out at a certain percentage, more importantly is the percentage of people who do not like the Tea Party, if they try to run as 3rd party, it will be an enormous failure.
