McDaniel beat Cochran in the primary about two weeks ago, getting 1,300 more votes. The poll was conducted June 9 to June 10 and has a margin of error of 4.4 percent. Now, heading into the runoff, WPA Opinion

I wonder if Cochran sends out newsletters, questionnaires and invitations to coffees? If so, I am sure he will win in a landslide, right?

Considering Cochran´s recent incoherent utterances, will he even realize he has been defeated? Or will he have to wait till the moving vans show up at his office?

#1, I am pretty sure he does all of that. Most incumbent senators do, if they care about getting reelected. But, Cochran´s doomed.

First Virginia, perhaps Mississippi. The citizens are opening eyes and throwing off the shackles? What´s happening here will be old man Cochran´s first question, to which he will answer ´Where´s here?

A high school student in Connecticut has asked the Board of Education to look into the blocking of conservative and Chrstian websites by his school. Eighteen year old Adam Lampart found that he could access pro-gun control sites but not the NRA. He also discovered that the state GOP website was blocked while the Democratic party page was available. The censorship also included blocking Christian sites but not Muslim ones.(snip) “And I went over on sites such as Moms Demand Action or Newtown Action Alliance, and I could get on these websites but not the others.”

Hillary´s Jugger-Not?

“I’m ready for Hillary,” read the bumper stickers in fashionable Georgetown, the swankIest part of Washington, D.C. These messages are juxtaposed with many a tattered “2012” bumper sticker with the fading Obama logo. Are these plugged-in liberals telling us their dream has faded, too? The never-quite-retiring Barbara Walters spoke to their disillusion when she wistfully sighed: “We thought he was going to be the new Messiah.” So, buoyed by public opinion polls showing her the most popular politician in America, Hillary Clinton launched her latest “listening tour” with a new book. It was supposed to be a non-campaign rollout.

Isis is not al-Qaida. And if this American president wants to avoid rushing into another disaster fueled by misinformation, he´ll seek authorization from politicians - and you. In his Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech four-and-half years ago, when the United States was still fighting George W Bush´s battles against al-Qaida, Barack Obama spoke not so much about peace as the necessity of sometimes going to war. "Evil does exist in the world," Obama remarked. "A nonviolent movement could not have halted Hitler´s armies. Negotiations cannot convince al-Qaida´s leaders to lay down their arms."

President Obama announced on Monday evening that US ground troops ´equipped for combat´ are being sent to Iraq – just days after claiming that no American soldiers would be deployed to the war-torn country. In a letter to Congress, the president said American troops will be returning to Iraq only three years after they left and their deployment began on Sunday. Obama said that their only purpose will be to protect U.S. personnel and the embassy in Baghdad – and not to join in the fierce fighting raging outside the Iraqi capital. The president did tell Congress, however, that American

President Obama was "being deceitful" when he told the American people in 2011 that the U.S. border is secure, Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.) told "Fox News Sunday." "The American people understand and appreciate, given the events over the past couple of weeks, that the president was being deceitful with the American people on this. There´s a human tragedy going on the Southern border right now, and the president´s doing nothing. What did he do this weekend to correct that? He gave a hyper-partisan commencement speech and then went and played golf.

Donna Brazile, the Democrat strategist who ran Al Gore´s campaign, said Republican candidates who ignore the Tea Party do so at their peril, as House Majority Leader Eric Cantor´s (R-VA) shocking ouster proved. "The Tea Party is still highly caffeinated," she said on ABC´s This Week, acknowledging that the "Tea Party is the energy inside the Republican Party." Brazile said that Cantor ignored Tea Party conservatives who also rose up in part to protest George W. Bush´s expansion of the federal government, and he paid for it with his political career.

Hillary Clinton snapped at radio host Terry Gross of NPR during a Thursday interview on the air about same-sex marriage. Gross persistently prodded the former First Lady, U.S. Senator, and Secretary of State on the issue, repeatedly asking her to clarify her position about when and why she decided to support same-sex marriage. “I’m pretty sure you didn’t answer my question about whether you evolved or it was the American public that changed,” Gross said finally. “You know I really, I have to say, I think you being very persistent, but you are playing with my words and playing with

As expected, the Common Core standards have become a significant electoral issue - one that is separating Washington establishment politicians from grassroots conservative candidates. While Dave Brat’s (R-VA) stunning victory over House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) was largely focused on the immigration debate, Brat’s opposition to the Common Core standards and such “top down approaches by the Federal Government” was spelled out on his website. “I will support efforts to place Virginia’s teachers, parents, and local officials, who best understand the needs of the community, in control of our education system,” Brat said.

A new survey suggests President Obama is just as unpopular as former President George W. Bush. Just over half of those polled, 51 percent, have an unfavorable view of Obama, and 51 percent currently feel the same about Bush, according to a CNN/ORC International poll released Thursday. Forty-seven percent of the public has a favorable rating of Obama, which CNN said is a new low for him, and roughly identical to Bush’s favorable rating of 46 percent. Days before leaving the White House in January 2009, Bush had a favorable rating of 35 percent. After the 2008 election, Obama had

At the end of the Civil War, but before the pernicious reach of Jim Crow undermined the Union Army’s battlefield victory, former slaves and free blacks found themselves in possession of a most precious right -- the right to vote. It didn’t matter if a man had been a war hero in the famed, all-black 54th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry Regiment or a house servant in a Southern plantation. All that mattered was that he was a man. To say that this development didn’t sit well with the progressive-minded women of this country is an understatement.

By 10 p.m. on Sept. 11, 2012, when Hillary Clinton received a call from President Obama, she was one of the most thoroughly briefed officials in Washington on the unfolding disaster in Benghazi, Libya. (Snip) She had no doubt that a terrorist attack had been launched against America on the anniversary of 9/11. However, when Hillary picked up the phone and heard Obama’s voice, she learned the president had other ideas in mind. With less than two months before Election Day, he was still boasting that he had al?Qaeda on the run. If the truth about Benghazi became known, it would blow that argument out of the water.

I still think President Barack Obama was born in Hawaii, even though for 14 years he allowed his literary agent to circulate a bio blurb stating he was born in Kenya, and even though for many years he attended a church where his pastor friend shouted such things as “God damn America!” I still think that he just pretended to be Kenyan to be cool, to sell books and, perhaps, to get a foreign student scholarship at those colleges from which he refuses to release his transcripts. He’s probably not actually Kenyan. But as I speculated

Hillary Clinton´s multimillion dollar fortune has caused some negative headlines during the media tour for the release of her new book "Hard Choices," which is widely seen as a prelude to a potential 2016 presidential campaign. Clinton responded to criticism of her wealth in an interview with the Guardian newspaper published Saturday night by suggesting Americans won´t be concerned about the more than $100 million her family has reportedly earned in recent years because they´re not "truly well off."

There are times that I have senior moments and forget certain names and events but after the recent Obama Iraq war implosion, I´m convinced most political pundits are suffering from them as well. What is unusual is that this revision of history is being committed by conservatives who should know better. Recent commentary by Glenn Beck, George Will and Charles Krauthammer indicate that they have significant memory lapses about why we went to war in Iraq. They now suggest that it was a wrong decision whereas my complaint is that we took too long to invade and oust Saddam Hussein.

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) cancelled its longtime relationship with an email-storage contractor just weeks after ex-IRS official Lois Lerner’s computer crashed and shortly before other IRS officials’ computers allegedly crashed. The IRS signed a contract with Sonasoft, an email-archiving company based in San Jose, California, each year from 2005 to 2010. The company, which partners with Microsoft and counts The New York Times among its clients, claims in its company slogans that it provides “Email Archiving Done Right” and “Point-Click Recovery.” Sonasoft in 2009 tweeted, “If the IRS uses Sonasoft products to backup their servers why wouldn’t you choose

All the time I was growing up in Atlanta, the face of Robert E. Lee was taking shape on the side of an enormous granite mountain just outside town. He loomed like a god above us, as much a presence as any deity, and God knows he was accepted as such. It was only much later that I began to question his sanctity, and then to hate what he stood for. When I was in elementary school, the face of Lee on Stone Mountain was a rough-cut thing, weathering and wasting as the generation that began it in 1912—a generation

The decision this past week by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to rescind federal trademark protections for the Redskins may ultimately tip the balance in the controversy over the 80-year-old name of Washington’s football team. If so, that would be a shame. Not because there’s insufficient reason to consider the name “disparaging to Native Americans,” as the patent office determined. Many of us recoil at the reference to skin color as a team identity. The problem is that the Redskins case is just the latest example of a federal agency going beyond its brief to inappropriately insert itself in

US Secretary of State John Kerry has arrived in Iraq´s capital, Baghdad as Sunni insurgents expand their control of towns across north-western Iraq. In Egypt on Sunday, Mr Kerry warned that Sunni militants Isis´ "ideology of violence and repression is a threat not only to Iraq but to the entire region". On Sunday rebels--spearheaded by Isis militants--captured border crossings to Syria and Jordan. The strategically important airport in the northern Tal Afar has also fallen. The town controls the main road from the Syrian border to Mosul, Iraq´s second biggest city, which was captured by the rebels two weeks ago.

In remarks to a GLIFAA (formerly Gays and Lesbians in Foreign Affairs Agencies) Pride event in the Ben Franklin Room at the State Department, the secretary ran through a litany of accomplishments by the Obama administration that benefit the "LGBT/gay community."

A hundred years ago next week, in the small Balkan city of Sarajevo, Serbian nationalists murdered the heir to the throne of Austria-Hungary and his wife. People were shocked but not particularly worried. Sadly, there had been many political assassinations in previous years—the king of Italy, two Spanish prime ministers, the Russian czar, President William McKinley. None had led to a major crisis. Yet just as a pebble can start a landslide, this killing set off a series of events that, in five weeks, led Europe into a general war.The U.S. under President Woodrow Wilson intended to stay out of

The least loved institution in America today is the U.S. Senate, and one of the reasons it is reviled is a zero-sum approach to women´s medical care. It´s time we changed that and adopt modern policies that make sense instead of using women´s medical issues as an election-year power play. One of the most rational ways for Washington to break this gridlock is to approve oral contraception for over-the-counter purchases by adults. Since "the pill" was first approved 44 years ago, it´s been one of the most proven and tested pharmaceuticals of our time. It is safe, reliable, effective, and presents
