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.

Very strange that the author of this article did NOT disclose that he is an ADVISER to the Thad Cochran Senate Campaign of 2014.

Is this truly considered an alternative view from a Native Mississippian or perhaps just a paid Adviser.

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Former Mayor Buddy Cianci´s face beams from the label of his Mayor´s Own Marinara Sauce, which also promises that sales are "Benefiting Providence School Children" and have helped hundreds of students attend college.

Demonstrators and police were locked in a confrontation late Monday as tear gas was fired at crowds who reportedly refused to disperse from the streets of Ferguson, Missouri. Tactical units and armored vehicles began to move in as the situation deteriorated. Sheriff´s deputies in body armor and state troopers carrying wooden bats and gas masks stood watch over the group. The streets of Ferguson remained crowded and active with few incidents through the day on Monday. By sundown, more protests began to take place and larger crowds began to gather, attracting more police presence. As midnight closed in a scene of

Then out of the darkness emerged seven more armed men in fatigues. Agents assumed the camouflaged crew that joined in pulling the immigrants from the canal´s milky green waters was a tactical unit from the Texas Department of Public Safety.

The man who turned over control of the U.S. Senate to Democrats by abandoning the GOP in 2001 died today at age 80. Former senator Jim Jeffords entered Vermont politics in the 1950s when it was the most rock-ribbed Republican state in the country. New residents gradually made it so liberal it now sends socialist Bernie Sanders to the Senate. But Jeffords himself didn’t change. He was always a liberal Republican who backed federal education spending and environmental regulation. When serving in the House, he was the only Republican to vote against President Ronald Reagan’s tax cuts in 1981.

Who are President Obama and the Democrats most afraid of? That’s easy to see: Just find the Republicans they target with phony scandals. Like Virginia Gov. Robert McDonnell. Or New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. Or Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker. Or, now, Texas Gov. Rick Perry. Let’s take them in order. Mr. McDonnell had been steadily rising on the radar, running Virginia with a steady hand and making a name in the GOP. He crushed his Democratic opponent by 17 points in the 2009 election, a year after Mr. Obama surprisingly took the state. Unemployment dropped from 7.4 percent to 5.2 percent

President Obama took a break from his summer vacation to return to Washington early Monday for series of high-level, but unspecified, White House meetings. Obama left his first family vacation on Martha’s Vineyard and will meet with Vice President Joe Biden and other top-ranking officials later Monday, according to White House staffers. But they have not disclosed what officials will discuss -- amid a list of international problems that include fighting in Iraq, Israel and Ukraine and the humanitarian-immigration crisis along the U.S.-Mexico border. Obama’s decision to return to Washington appears to be in part a response to criticism about him spending

NAACP President Cornell Brooks said it is "critically important" that a special prosecutor be appointed to investigate the death of Michael Brown, the unarmed black teenager who was shot by a white police officer last week. Browns´ death has resulted in a week of clashes between protesters and police in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson, Mo., even as Gov. Jay Nixon attempted to restore the peace by instituting a curfew over the weekend. Nixon said in a separate interview on "Face the Nation" Sunday that the local prosecutor assigned to the case "has a real opportunity to step up" in

Gov.

The Peace Corps’ inspector general says she can’t oversee the agency properly without access to sex-assault records it refuses to hand over. Why won’t the Peace Corps comply? The Peace Corps’ internal watchdog is publicly criticizing the agency for not releasing sexual assault records, which they say is disrupting oversight of an agency that has struggled in the past to protect its volunteers. It’s a worrisome charge, leveled at one of America’s most storied programs by its own inspector general, and is just the latest episode for an organization roiled by exposés about the deaths of its volunteers abroad and the inadequacy

Military veterans of the Iraq War told The Daily Signal that they were heartened that President Obama ordered airstrikes against the Islamic State. But, most said, they remain unsettled by the president’s decision to withdraw — and are concerned that the sacrifices and gains they made for Iraqi freedom were, in one soldier’s words, “for naught.” Besides a series of airstrikes to kill and scatter fighters of the Islamic State — formerly

Violence continues in Ferguson, Missouri. It began on August 9 with the death of Michael Brown, an unarmed African-American teenager cut down by a white cop’s bullets. Peaceful demonstrations turned into looting, the local police went in with rubber bullets and tear gas, all hell broke loose and, eventually, Missouri’s governor pulled out the local police and sent in state officers instead. But the rioting only paused; it didn’t cease.

Ousted “Meet the Press” anchor David Gregory was paid $4 million to leave NBC and signed a contract not to speak out against the network, sources told Page Six. Gregory, 43, who moderated the show for six years, was unceremoniously dumped from the political program on Thursday after dismal ratings and months of speculation about his departure. He has been replaced by NBC White House correspondent Chuck Todd. A source said Gregory’s contract extended into next year, so NBC had to pay him for the rest of the term, plus an extra fee to ensure his silence. In return, he was asked to sign
