It would be best if Thad Cochran is defeated in the general election. Make an example of him for using the tactic of appealing to our political enemies for support.

He thinks that after winning the Republican primary with Democrat votes [because he is not really an opponent of the Democrats, and he openly wooed them], that somehow those Republican votes he depends on for the General election will be there. Funny thing. Whenever a TEA Party candidate wins a primary, the Institutional Republicans either don't vote, or vote Democrat.

Sauce. Goose. Gander.

Not gonna happen considering a large number of these voters have said out loud that they intend to vote for Cochran's Democrate opponent this fall. Honestly, I'm done with the GOP at this point. When they have to stoop so low as to get Democrats to help them, this party just doesn't represent anything anymore. Whether you vote Democrat or RINO, nothing changes.

I have to wonder about all of this.

First, those who favor closed primaries got a big piece of evidence backing their cause.

Second, although I live far away from Mississippi and may not know the lay of the land, I would think the Democrats would find McDaniel the more beatable candidate. If I was living down there I would have voted for McDaniel.

Third, the reason I can't support the Democrats any more is because they constantly sold out their far left supporters like me. The theory is that people like me were going to vote for them anyway so we could be ignored at best and stabbed in the back at worst. Four years of Obama didn't close Gitmo and brought in a healthcare plan Mitt Romney could love. Thad Cochran feels that Tea Party supporters will hold their noses and vote for him. Just a note for Republicans who feel that way. Eventually you have to hold your nose so hard it breaks.

Well, are all you anti-Tea Party gop faithful proud of your party today? Later, when Cochran continues to vote with the marxist dems on everything that comes up before congress, are you gonna say "well, he was duly elected by his constituents...."?

Probably just as proud as you were a couple weeks ago when Cantor lost, perhaps largely due to a orchestrated VA Dem campaign for cross-over votes in his primary. I don't recall hearing any of the TPers bewailing Dem crossover votes then ... but two weeks must be a lifetime ago, Dude!

Sauce for the goose, sauce for the gander, etc.

So again, you're happy that you've retained a guy in office who will continue to do his part to turn our posterity into debt slaves? What exactly are you celebrating this morning?

Not celebrating ... just noting the typical hypocrisy of the typical "principles-based" tea partier ... what was a yawner of a non-issue two weeks ago suddenly becomes a call to arms today.

TPers are grand practitioners of "situational based principles". Nothing is a principle unless it supports your political cause.

Your slavish devotion to The Party is admirable in a pathetic abused-wife sort of way....

No - simply devoted to putting Harry Reid out to pasture ... you TPers seem far more motivated to defeat Republicans than you are to defeat Democrats.

The converse could be said of you gop PURISTS. The Mississippi race proves it.

I wonder what the going rate in that part of Mississippi is for a black "minister" to pimp out his congregation.

Probably not real high.

Thad Cochran is an aging clueless moron and will be nothing but a tool for the status quo fat butted lobbyiists who want amnesty and big spending. To hell with all of these insiders because their day is coming.

It is a gross exaggeration to say a Republican like Thad Cochran is worse than a Democrat. The odds he remain minimally 40% more conservative than his Democratic Party opponent. Some people need to start behaving like grownups. I preferred the Tea Party candidate---but I can still easily support Cochran.

Funny you should say. Thad Cochrane has a lifetime American Conservative Union ranking of 79%, compared to the Senate GOP average rating of 77%. ACU rates the Senate Dems an average of 7%. Meaning Cochrane is slightly more conservative than the average Senate Republican, and is 70% better than the average Dem.

Woe is us.

So you are for the Democrats getting their whole agenda, just only 75% as fast as they want to?

Or only 7% ... read the numbers above.

The Establishment GOP are every bit the unprincipled power-lusting tools as the Democrats. Let them burn.

As much as I am dismayed by Cochran's win, perhaps all these new black Republican voters will consider trying it a second time? Maybe the next time they'll be swayed to vote for a Republican with their interests in mind who isn't senile?

"What is Thad Cochran thinking about now?"

That it is 2004 and he just won reelection in New York?

I would urge otherwise, because this an opportunity to lose a Senate seat nominally in rightist hands...except McDaniel beat Cochrane in the first primary, and Cochrane self-evidently beat McDaniel in the run off by going to the other side. The better thing, in this narrow case, seems to me to defeat Cochrane in the General, if possible.

Pour encourage les autres.
