Will There Be a Consequence?
It was the Republicans in Washington and their allies in Mississippi who distributed fliers to Democrats in Mississippi calling conservatives racists, klansmen, Nazis, etc. It was a concerted effort by the GOP to beat their own base at any cost. And here’s the kicker — there will be no consequence if they have their way. That begs the question of whether there should be. Should | Read More »
Random Thoughts About The Mississippi Senate Race
A lot is swirling through all of our heads now and I am going to post some of mine. — “We must, indeed, all hang together, or most assuredly we shall all hang separately.”-Ben Franklin So where were Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, and Mike Lee in this race? Oh yeah, they don’t endorse against incumbents. Even though incumbents are the troublemakers in Washington. Look, I | Read More »
The Marionettes Remain Uncut
“At some point there will be more people with knives out to cut the strings than there will be puppeteers with checkbooks.” Having been an elected Republican and someone who routinely takes the position of supporting conservatives in primaries and Republicans in general elections, the Mississippi race does crystalize for me the desires of many to start a third party. In essence, tea party activists | Read More »
Why Runoffs Tend to be Nasty, Messy Affairs
Today is runoff day in Mississippi. We should not underestimate the ability of Haley Barbour to turn out voters for Thad Cochran. It will be a case of motivation of the voters. And that is exactly why runoffs tend to be nasty, horrible affairs. Runoffs are not about voter mobilization. They are about voter suppression. I say this as someone who has consulted on and | Read More »
New York Times Sends Obama Campaign Worker Theodore Schleifer to Cover Chris McDaniel
The incestuous relationship between the mainstream media and Democratic Party has headed down to Mississippi. Theodore Scheifer is covering the campaign. He has written a few stories.

Scheifer was a speechwriting intern for Obama for America and also for Obama’s U.S. | Read More »
The National Republican Senatorial Committee’s Incumbent Protection Plan Pours Money in Mississippi
The NRSC is pouring more money into Mississippi’s Republican Runoff to defeat Republican Chris McDaniel. It looks like they just dropped $175,000.00 on phone calls. Just remember all you people annoyed with robocalls that it is the NRSC doing it. Wonder how much the consultants are going to make on this. No one has a real idea of what is going to happen tomorrow between | Read More »

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.

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 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 »

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 »
