Back Scratching Politics of Mississippi
Brett Favre, a man who did not know when to quit, has cut an ad for Senator Thad Cochran, a man who has has himself stayed in his job too long. The pattern does not end there. Jenn Sterger claimed Brett Favre sent her indecent pictures and Thad Cochran has admitted to doing, in his words, “all sorts of indecent things with animals.” But the | Read More »
Democrats Join the Fight to Get Thad Cochran Re-Elected
It is not just out of state liberals flooding Mississippi with money for Thad Cochran, it is the Mississippi Democrats too. James “Scooby Doo” Warren said he has put together a get-out-the-vote (GOTV) plan and is “putting it in place across the whole state.” Warren said he is not working with the Cochran campaign itself but for the PAC and Bishop Ronnie Crudup Sr. Crudup | Read More »
Principle Over Profits
Yesterday at the New York Meeting, a gathering of conservatives in New York, Haley Barbour said the GOP’s goal should not be purity. He also praised Eric Cantor. There is a great disconnect in the political press and among politicians like Haley Barbour over the endgame of conservatives in America. It is not actually about purity for the sake of purity. It never has been. | Read More »
Gun Grabber Michael Bloomberg Spends $250,000.00 to Get Thad Cochran Re-Elected
Hey Mississippi. You know Michael Bloomberg right? He’s the guy who wants to take your guns away. He’s the guy who created a non-profit group to agitate against the second amendment. He’s the guy spreading lies about the number of school shootings in the country. Michael Bloomberg is also the guy who just gave a pro-Thad Cochran Super PAC $250,000.00. Gun grabbing Michael Bloomberg is | Read More »
Doddering Old Man Thad Cochran Uses Angry Words Against Chris McDaniel
Someone must have slipped Thad Cochran some geritol and metamucil. He’s decided to throw some rhetorical punches at state senator Chris McDaniel. Cochran calls McDaniel an “extremist” and “dangerous.” Mind you, Cochran has previously admitted he only knows about the tea party from what he reads in the paper. Perhaps Cochran is only reading the Democrat run Clarion-Ledger in Mississippi. Actually, considering he does not | Read More »
Wholesale Disenfranchisement in MS Election Due to New Voter ID Law

The New York Times rounds up the “usual suspects” in Mississippi.
The NY Times printed the “usual suspects” response to the McDaniel win in Mississippi, and it is worth examination to understand what is really going on in the Senate elections this year. Yes, I said the McDaniel WIN. What the leftists at the NY Times deny is that there is a conservative resurgence in this country. That resurgence, in order to gain the light of | Read More »
Thad Cochran is Wasting GOP Resources by not Conceding
Conventional wisdom is descending on the McDaniel vs. Cochran run-off that was kicked off last night when neither candidate pulled in over 50% of the votes in the Mississippi primary. The wisdom goes something like this: Cochran is a safe bet with high name ID in Mississippi and therefore will be able to spend his energy and resources fighting back against a lesser known Democrat | Read More »
What Do Last Night’s Primaries Mean for the GOP?
On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson is joined by David Harsanyi to discuss last night’s primary elections in Mississippi and Iowa, what these battles mean for the GOP and if Republicans will settle on Marco Rubio as the middle ground guy for 2016.

The best shot the establishment had at beating Chris McDaniel was a primary. But now they find themselves in a runoff where the most energized supporters show up. When their candidate lacks energy, it is hard for any of their voters to have energy. But Chris McDaniel has energy headed into a three week runoff. The only caveat is if overnight some mystery votes from | Read More »
Sen Wicker (MS) & County Republican Leader Appeal for Democrat Votes in Senate Primary?
In an appeal via email to the party faithful of rural Tippah County, Jerry Windham, Ex-Officio writes that: “the Tea Party, and I suspect the Democratic party, is trying to unseat Senator Thad Cochran because he will be the Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, should the Republican Party prevail as projected. That means that he will hold the purse strings of the United States Government. I suggest | Read More »
‘She Gets Everything She Wants’
“She gets everything she wants,” Jack Abramoff said in an email. He was referring to Ann Copland who spent 29 years working for Thad Cochran, working her way into the position of his Executive Assistant. An Abramoff associate was complaining that Ms. Copland wanted to see Paul McCartney, Green Day, and others. She was demanding. But she got everything she wanted because she delivered Thad | Read More »
Thad Cochran Hosts Fundraisers for Liberal Democrats
The Washington Examiner reports that Thad Cochran hosts fundraisers for Democrats in his home. Well . . . they report it slightly differently. The Washington Examiner reports that Cochran’s executive assistant, Kay Webber, hosts fundraisers in her home and Thad Cochran rents a basement apartment there. But there is no basement apartment in Kay Webber’s home available for rent. That’s according to the District of | Read More »
Abortionist Willie Parker commits the unpardonable sin
“Doctor” Willie Parker is a disgrace as a physician, and he has definitely got God’s attention. Parker is an abortionist. He flies from his home in Chicago to Jackson, Mississippi, to kill babies at that state’s last death factory.
There are so many reprehensible and evil things about abortion, but Parker’s latest statement has to be the “evilest” I’ve heard.
