Thad Cochran loves him some porků in a Biblical kind of way
redstate.com ^ | 6/12/14

Any doubt that doddering, semi-somnolent Thad Cochran was a true lover of pork was put to rest yesterday. According to the Hattiesburg (MS) American, Cochran said:

he grew up playing in the country, picking pecans and doing “all kinds of indecent things with animals” in the area.

That is one helluva an admission, even in this day and age. Assuming, arguendo, that Cochran was being facetious, though with his mental faculties very much an open question he may have simply been fondly reminiscing over lost love, it demonstrates that the man is not really on the ball. He has been on a gravy train fueled by corporate cash and a good ol’ boy network and never really received a challenge nor faced scrutiny until this year.

Many signs point to Cochran’s days at the trough with his belle du jour being over. Three recent polls show Chris McDaniel building a lead over Cochran’s foundering campaign:

◾Polling conducted by WPA Research indicates that McDaniel is in a strong position to win the Republican primary runoff election, leading Cochran 49-41 among likely runoff voters, an eight point lead.

◾The memo highlights polling completed by Strategic National, which shows McDaniel with a majority of support, with 52% of the primary electorate and a six point lead over Cochran.

◾In addition, it covers public polling performed by Chism Strategies which shows McDaniel with a majority of support at 51% and a three point lead over Cochran.

The runoff should see Cochran retired so he can spend more time with his “executive assistant” and whatever livestock he can fit in the backyard.

That shows you how out of touch the old codger is with the 21st Century. Back in the ‘50s that might have just been laughed off as a good ol’ country boy joke. But, he has to be stupid to not know that in this “information age” and cyber space technology, that saying something like that would be the death knell to his campaign.

I think it reflects the contempt he holds for the people in his former state know that he’s a Washingtonian.

Did he really do that when he was young, or did his K-Street advisers just put that on his teleprompter because they figure that's the type of thing that Mississippi voters like (being that Cochran has long forgotten Mississippi in his old age and near terminal Potomac Fever)?

I doubt he picked pecans. Maybe he picked them up off the ground after shaking the branches. As for what he did with the farm animals, who knows. Lol.

Actually, in the 50’s this would have been considered a tasteless attempt at a bad joke.

This days it would be considered a lifestyle choice and basic human rights issue waiting for recognition right after the North American Man-Boy Love Association (NAMBLA) gets it's proper mainstream recognition and legitimization

Reminds me of 2 country brothers at the country store talking about all the animals they had had sex with. A city slicker sales man asked the younger one if had ever had sex with a zebra, He thought for a minute then asked his brother “ I don’t know Did daddy have one of them”?
