Chris McDaniel Confirms the
Worst GOP Stereotypes

Daily Beast, by Stuart Stevens

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 7/8/2014 10:11:04 AM

How an obscure Mississippi state senator became the poster boy for all that’s wrong with the right. There is an odd sort of political bubble emanating from my home state of Mississippi. And like most bubbles, it has more to do with wish fulfillment than reality. As Carmen Reinhart and Kenneth Rogoff observed in their classic This Time Is Different, “there are usually remarkable similarities of past experience” linking manias that, in retrospect, seem so obviously unhinged. Believing that tulips are the most valuable commodities in international commerce or betting that house prices can only go up requires a suspension of critical

No, Cochran is the worst stereotypical southern politician. The. worst.

And that the GOP backs him looks really, really bad. Who chooses Thaddy´s votes?

This article is brought to you by the same mentality that thinks Tony Lee of Brietbart is the Anti-Christ in journalistic form.

Well done!

It doesn´t matter who McDaniel is. It was the tactics used against him that are the disgrace. Smearing McDaniel and his supporters as racists was over the line.

A view from a Cochran loving native Mississippian who will have some serious egg on his face after putting his name to this article.

There are some serious allegations of FRAUD in this MS race, such as:

"Cochran campaign staffer Amanda Shook was illegally reimbursed for over $40,000 cash in walking around money during the Republican primary, according to Federal Election Commission (FEC) filings. The payments are described as "Reimbursed Expenses - Campaign Walkers." She as well as Sims a staffer of Wicker´s on loan to Cochran were the ones mentioned by the black preacher in the vote buying.

Radio ads against McDaniel were found to be paid for by NRSC by funneling through an unregistered PAC which has refused to make the required reports to the FEC. That´s McConnell´s Moran the head of NRSC...a Cornyn fellow traveler.

Apparently, mistakes were made by NRSC as well by sticking the funds into a Primary when NRSC said it had learned it lesson with Charlie Crist in Florida......they lied! Remember Cornyn was back then the one behind sending one million dollars to Crist and when Crist saw he was losing the primary, he jumped ship to be an Independent which didn´t help him........now a full fledge Democrat. RINOs beware as this will come back to bite you where you sit. This applies to RINO lovers as well.

Nothing more than Alinsky´s rule #12 being used by the msm demonize all conservatives. RULE 12: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions. (This is cruel, but very effective. Direct, personalized criticism and ridicule works.)

Thanks, OP for posting this whitewash of the Stevens-McDaniel primary. This signals the new strategy of the GOPe against Conservatives in MS: simply refuse to acknowledge the dirty tricks employed by the Kochran Kamp and feed the Conservatives to the lions and wolves of the LSM and the Lib/Prog/Dems.

Shameful.

A bald faced lie, how many more are there? I will vote for a R house and a dem senate. "Establishment" R´s are worse then dems as they insult the base, insuring the base stays home. Reagan Democrats will never vote for CoC Establishment candidates.

This guy, Stevens needs to get out of his pajamas, and GO SEE the "shreds of evidence".
His guy refused to have a single debate, and short answers to reporters´ questions were off the wall. Cochran does not have the mental ability to be a Senator any longer.
Using dirty democrat tactics to coax and cajole black democrats to violate the law and vote for Cochran was the last straw.
McConnell and MCCain needed their sock puppet to do as they say, they don´t want a Senator from Mississippi who would ask "WHY".

The snark was so thick that I was compelled to respond. Defense IS a small part of the budget because government is doing so much that is not specifically authorized by the Constitution. Social Security is 24%. Medicaid, Medicare & CHIP are 22%. Defense is only 19%. The Safety Net programs and Interest combined are about the same as Defense. The Cochran campaign, and the establishment GOP in general, loves to brag about its support for the military and ignores the bloated spending of the remaining 80% of spending.

The Daily Beast interviews Cochran operatives and finds bad things to say about the man who exposed the establishment GOP in MS. What a shocker.

No credibility whatsoever. None for Stuart Stevens, none for the OP, none for The Daily Beast and certainly none for Cochran and his handlers with the establishment.

With National Security Emerging as

The shifting politics of foreign policy has scrambled the calculations for both parties ahead of the November elections. It has put some Senate candidates, unaccustomed to talking about national security issues, in an uncomfortable position, while elevated others with military experience and foreign policy bona fides. Candidates´ past votes, comments and even their biographies are emerging as huge opportunity in key Senate races, while emerging as glaring vulnerabilities in others. And in Arkansas, where Democrats hoped to exploit war-weariness among the public against hawkish GOP Senate nominee Tom Cotton, the terrorist attacks from ISIS have suddenly changed the mood in the

ISIS is once again urging Muslims to ´kill disbelievers´ and attacking Secretary of State John Kerry and President Barack Obama for recent statements they have made about the terrorist group in a new audio recording. Islamic State spokesman Abu Mohammad al-Adnani refers to Sec. of State Kerry as ´the old uncircumcised geezer´ and calls Pres. Obama ´the mule of the Jews´ on the recording, which is roughly 42-minutes long. He then asks Muslims to do whatever they can to kill those who do not share their faith. ´If you can kill a disbelieving American or European - especially the spiteful

So was it a glorious triumph for democracy or wasn’t it? Before we get sucked into the next constitutional adventure on which the Prime Minister has launched us, it is really important to spend a few moments meditating at the graveside of the Yes campaign. Understanding what just happened in Scotland is absolutely critical to what is being planned, it would seem, for the rest of the Union. There certainly was an important lesson in the nature of democratic politics to be learnt from the Scottish referendum, but it is not the one that so many people – for whom the

Rape is a vicious crime, one that disproportionately affects poor women and incarcerated men, but Barack Obama knows his voters, and so his recent remarks on the subject were focused not on penitentiaries, broken families, or Indian reservations but on college campuses, where the despicable crime is bound up in a broader feminist Kulturkampf only tangentially related to the very real problem of sexual violence against women. The subject is a maddening one. President Obama repeated the endlessly reiterated but thoroughly debunked claim that one in five women will be sexually assaulted in her college years.

Close races mean possibility
Senate control will be decided

A handful of tight races in states with quirky election laws make for the possibility that Election Day will come and go without deciding which party controls the Senate. If that happens, brace for a fierce runoff election and possible recounts that could make for an ugly holiday season in politics and government. The main reason for uncertainty: Louisiana´s election laws. Strategists in both parties say a Dec. 6 runoff is likely because Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu and top Republican challenger Bill Cassidy will struggle to exceed 50 percent on the crowded Nov. 4 ballot. In Louisiana´s "jungle primary," all candidates -- regardless

Someone in the Obama White House clearly has a good book to write one day: "How Not to Do Rollouts." With one hapless episode after another, the rollout of the President´s plan to destroy ISIS is beginning to rival the less-than-splendid debut of the Obamacare website. President Barack Obama´s critics may take some glee from the recent missteps, but they shouldn´t. Going to war is serious business, especially when the conflict promises to be long and messy. For the nation´s sake, our dysfunctional politics needs to become functional on this one or we put too much at risk, starting with the lives of

UNITED NATIONS -- As world leaders gather at the U.N. this week, the U.S. and its European allies are consumed by efforts to blunt the savage advance of the Islamic State group, to end the raging Ebola epidemic and to make progress in nuclear negotiations with Iran. That´s likely just fine with Vladimir Putin, since these issues distract from Russia´s presence in neighboring Ukraine. While attention focuses elsewhere, the Russians are consolidating their annexation of the Crimean Peninsula. They are also deeply involved in turmoil in Ukraine´s east and south, hoping to prevent the country from moving out of the Kremlin´s

Four of the five inmates who escaped from a California county jail have been recaptured, authorities said. Madera County sheriff´s spokeswoman Erica Stuart said late Saturday that the escapees had been recaptured, but did not immediately provide further details of their arrests. Stuart identified 29-year-old Roel Soliz of Chowchilla, Calif. as the inmate still at large. The other four inmates were identified at the time of the escape as Juan Lopez, 33; Abel Ramos, 25; Ricardo Cendejas, 19; and Jorge Lopez-Diaz, 26. Lopez had been imprisoned on armed robbery and attempted murder charges. Ramos and Cendejas were in jail for attempted murder

Senate Republicans are planning aggressive action to intensify oversight of the Obama administration and move conservative legislation long stymied by the Democrats if they win control of the upper chamber in the midterm elections. Republican leaders are promising a complete makeover of the chamber that goes beyond changes in legislative priorities, according to knowledgeable GOP sources. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, expected to become the next majority leader as long as he wins re-election on Nov. 4, plans to return power to the committees and promote a freewheeling debate process that allows members to shape legislation through a vigorous

The subject line reads, “Dear Friends: More Speech, Not Hate Speech.” The email reveals that by “hate speech,” the writers mean what the Left usually means when they use that term: “opinions we don’t agree with.” Thirty-two student organizations signed the email under the leadership of Yale’s Muslim Student Association (MSA). That’s a revised number after the MSA was forced to reveal that its original list of 36 organizations was falsified. So,

It was once said, “religion is designed to comfort the afflicted and to afflict the comfortable.” Jesus’ parables – short stories with moral lessons – were likewise designed to afflict, to draw us in but leave us uncomfortable. These teachings can be read as being about divine love and salvation, sure. But, their first listeners – first century Jews in Galilee and Judea – heard much more challenging messages. Only when we hear the parables as Jesus’ own audience did can we fully experience their power and find ourselves surprised and challenged today. Here are four examples of Jesus’ teachings that everybody gets wrong: 1.

I know a lot of people are giddy at the prospect of Republicans taking the Senate this November, but that’s becoming less and less likely. It’s not because Democrats are rallying around a particular mission or set of candidates; it’s because Republicans and conservatives aren’t. It seems like I’m always writing on issues no one wants to hear are mistakes, such as messaging or social issues. But I don’t care. These things have to be said. If these columns are received like a gaseous cousin on a long car trip through the desert, so be it. Crack a window… If things continue on their current course, the GOP will not retake the Senate.

Three and a half months have come and gone and the Pentagon has offered no clarity on what happened to alleged Army deserter and Taliban collaborator Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Fellow soldiers and other critics fear the military’s now-delayed investigation is shaping up to be a whitewash. The case has become a political powder keg for President Obama. Since he traded five imprisoned Taliban leaders for Bergdahl, the US Government Accountability Office has declared the swap illegal, and nearly two dozen House Democrats have joined Republicans in officially condemning the move for making “Americans less safe.”

When Anthony Weiner’s mayoral campaign imploded last year amid new sexting revelations, the fallout buffeted his wife, longtime Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin. Clinton’s inner circle was furious with Weiner, and Abedin’s role with Hillary was said to be in doubt. “Huma has a choice to make,” New York magazine quoted a “close associate” of Abedin’s as saying. “Does she go with Anthony, or does she go with Hillary?” The magazine described Abedin as “traumatized” by the prospect of leaving the inner sanctum. One year later, Abedin’s marriage to Weiner appears intact, and her role in Hillary’s camp is secure. As Clinton’s personal chief

SALEM, N.H. — Voters have soured on President Obama. National and statewide trends favor Republicans. And here in his new home state, Scott Brown’s truck is gaining speed. Analysts and recent polls have found Brown closing in on US Senator Jeanne Shaheen, the Democratic incumbent he is vying to unseat, in a race that has become increasingly nasty and expensive. Once largely dismissed by critics as an unlikely second act in a state he moved to only last year, Brown’s Senate bid is increasingly seen as a plausible path back to the US Capitol. Observers see a race that may be largely determined
