There were so many to choose from, but this one is my favorite.

    And the AP just called the race for Cochran. The Dems may write this off, but I have to wonder if the Teabaggers will vote for Cochran in November, given how nasty this race became.

    • It will be interesting to see the exit polling, to get an idea of just how much of an effect the black and/or Democratic vote had. At least one knowledgable observer says it was more about GOP increases that Democratic outreach.

      Another thing to consider is that something like 43% of Mississippi’s entire economy is based on federal funding, e.g., military, etc. Maybe voters realized that Cochran has been successful in bringing badly needed federal investment to the state, whereas McDaniel pretty much objects to any kind of federal spending, and therefore, pretty much objects to helping his own state.


    Tea party favorite and Mississippi state Sen. Chris McDaniel (R) did not concede defeat to Sen. Thad Corchan (R-MS) after the runoff election was called for Cochran in the race for U.S. Senate in Mississippi.

    Instead, McDaniel, in his election night speech to supporters on Tuesday, suggested that he would fight the election results. McDaniel said “there is something a bit strange, there is something a bit unusual about a Republican primary that’s decided by liberal Democrats.”

    McDaniel’s comments are a clear reference to the Cochran campaign seeking out the support of African-Americans and Democratic voters in the state to bringing him over the finish line in the runoff. Even though McDaniel won in the runoff it was by a slim margin. When the race was called late on Tuesdaywith 98 percent reporting Cochran led McDaniel 50.6 percent to 49.4 percent.

    “As you know there were literally dozens of irregularities reported across this state. And you know why. You read the stories. You’re familiar, you’re familiar with the problems that we had,” McDaniel said.

    “Now it’s our job to make sure that sanctity of the vote is upheld. Before this race ends we have to be absolutely certain that the Republican primary was won by Republican voters,” he continued. “And so we will stand with courage, we will stand with judgement, we will stand with integrity and we will stand for dedication.”

      Shorter Chris McDaniel: “Nobody told me black people could vote! WTF?!?”

      Speaking of “sanctity of the vote,” Republicans have finally, at long, long last, found an actual, factual case of voter fraud! Unfortunately for them, it’s a Republican (and big Scott Walker fan) in Wisconsin. By conservative logic, this means Scott Walker’s win is illegitimate, as it is clearly the result of massive voter fraud.
