You guys been watching the goings on in Mississippi? Cochran beat McDaniel narrowly in a very close Republican primary. Cochran is the old dyed in the wool politician, the guy that has been there for a hundred years, embedded in greed and cronyism, dead wood, the kind of guy that term limits were designed for. McDaniel was the young, energetic, Tea Party guy, the guy that recognizes the disease DC is infected with, the guy that still has his eye on the prize, some young blood that would inject some enthusiasm and some due diligence into the mix. Long story short, Cochran went democrat commando, signed his soul over to the devil, abandoned every principal known to man, and laid down with dogs.
Listen to some of the ads they ran;
What a scumbag ,”If you want to keep your free shit, vote for me, the other guy won’t be bought so easily”.
What is worse, legitimizing the lies about the Tea Party, or courting dems to do your dirty work because you suspect that those of your own party, your constituents, would prefer someone more in line with their values?
So what do you do in November if you live in Mississippi? Do you vote for this creep and reward him for going dirty, or sit out, and risk a Dem taking that seat, a very valuable and coveted seat in the Senate, a place we need if we want any hope of derailing the emperor?
This is one reason why people hate politicians, and why folks turn Independent.
