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.

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.

In his fourth-floor lab at Harvard University, Michael Desai has created hundreds of identical worlds in order to watch evolution at work. Each of his meticulously controlled environments is home to a separate strain of baker’s yeast. Every 12 hours, Desai’s robot assistants pluck out the fastest-growing yeast in each world — selecting the fittest to live on — and discard the rest. Desai then monitors the strains as they evolve over the course of 500 generations. His experiment, which other scientists say is unprecedented in scale, seeks to gain insight into a question that has long bedeviled biologists: If

With a number of prominent conservative politicians raising fears that the Ebola outbreak could spread to the U.S. via the country’s porous borders with Mexico and Canada, Customs and Border Protection and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention sought to reassure a worried public that they are doing everything they can to monitor people entering the U.S. – whether legally or illegally – for the virus. “CBP and the CDC have closely coordinated to develop policies, procedures, and protocols to identify travelers that are known by U.S. public health officials to have a communicable disease and to handle in a

MIAMI -- Hillary Clinton covered all her bases in Miami on Thursday: She padded her wallet with a paid speech, pitched her memoir with a book signing and fundraised for a Democrat in a critical presidential state. This is becoming a familiar formula for Clinton. In October alone Clinton has four trips planned -- to Miami, Chicago, Las Vegas and San Francisco -- where she will combine a paid speech with either a book event or a fundraiser for a Democratic candidate or group. The strategy is part logistical, part practical for Clinton. But as she considers a presidential run in 2016,

HONG KONG -- Friction between pro-democracy protesters and opponents of their weeklong occupation of major Hong Kong streets persisted Saturday as police denied any connection to criminal gangs suspected of inciting attacks on largely peaceful demonstrators. Police arrested 19 people during a night of running brawls in which at least 12 people and six officers were injured. Eight men were believed to have backgrounds linked to triads, or organized crime, said Senior Superintendent Patrick Kwok Pak-chung. Officials vehemently denied rumors they might have coordinated with the gangs to clear the streets. "Such rumors linking us to `black societies,´ are utterly unfair," visibly agitated

The 11 members of the all-Democratic Massachusetts congressional delegation have been asked to pony up at least $25,000 each from their political funds for the party’s financially struggling gubernatorial nominee, Martha Coakley. At least three of them have initially balked at the idea, however, exposing some of the problems Coakley faces in getting full support from the Democratic establishment as she and the party struggle to close a fund-raising gap with GOP rival Charlie Baker and the state Republican Party. On Wednesday, the senior Democrat in the Massachusetts House delegation, Representative Richard E. Neal of Springfield, called his colleagues to

Its sister organization, Crossroads GPS, has raised $75 million. Mr. Lindsay didn’t disclose how much of that amount was raised in

I have written frequently that I estimate that one-third of the mortgage foreclosures in the 2007-10 period were of Hispanic homebuyers. Very many had been granted mortgages, despite bad or dubious credit, by lenders who then fobbed them off on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac or other mortgage securitizers, in the meantime gaining brownie points with regulators for lending to “minorities.” Evidence supporting this comes, inadvertently, from an Urban Institute report spotlighted by the industrious and provocative blogger Steve Sailer. You can see that there was a huge increase in the number of mortgages granted to Hispanics in the years

CLEVELAND - It is shocking that just three percent of rapists in America ever serve time. CBS News reported five years ago that investigators often ignore DNA evidence collected from victims in what is known as a "rape kit." Thousands of these rape kits have gathered dust for years. Stories such as ours persuaded some police departments to begin testing them. Charles Steele raped at least four Cleveland women in the mid-´90s. One was at a gas station when he walked up.

In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow.

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered.

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control.

I’m always sceptical when I hear scare-mongering claims about diseases. From bird flu to SARS, we’re repeatedly told it’s going to be the new Plague that will wipe everyone out and then…it doesn’t.
