I think it really it is Alzeheimers. The GOP was going to just pull a Byrd with him and wheel him out to vote.

They are even more evil than even I thought.

I’d say there’s gonna be an avalanche of Chamber of Commerce, and RNC ‘walkin around money’ on the street for Democrat ‘faux Republicans’ to go vote for Thad.

They’re aren’t gonna be caught flat footed again.

I certainly hope all that money the Tea Party Express and all the attention they say they’ve been devoting to MS is really happening. I sure do hope Jenny Beth Martin’s $15K/month consulting fee pays off.

I won’t make fun of Thad nor degrade him. It is obvious he is suffering from dementia and receive our empathy. Having said that - I blame the GOPe for trying to keep this man in office when it is evident he isn’t mentally capable of doing his job any more. Sad!

The GOPe would probably fare better in other races and in November if they eased Cocharan out before the primary and accept gracefully that they lost this one.

This man needs some medical attention, not another term in Congress. His demeanor suggests that he isn’t even into it anyway. Gives a clear message of what type of person the GOP establishment would like in office.

Yesterday I still thought he was still just a regular RINO being a regular foot in mouth RINO, but this finishes it for me. There is no way he is of sound mind. It just is not possible. No one would be that blind to Cantor in his position. He is definitely not a well man.

It depends on a couple of things. It depends on whether these Tea Party organizations are really doing what they tell media sound-bite interviews they are, and whether the media outlets that interview them actually check it out to see if they’re telling the truth and report it wholesale, truthfully.

I fear that most all of them are just waiting for MS election night when they can trumpet that the phenomenon that happened in VA 7th was just a fluke.

IOW, if the MS voters don’t already have their ground game and funded support in place now, they won’t get anything substantive to make a difference. None of the media in this country really wants ‘Tea Party sentiment’ to succeed.

If ever there were any doubts that Cochran is suffering from dementia then they should all be put to rest now. Still won’t stop the GOPe from doing everything they can to get him re-elected.

Hadn't thought of that. He really is the perfect Rovian candidate, isn't he?

I catch hell for harping on the GOP but I mean come on. this is what they have become? Yes it is. They say the Dems wheel Byrd out drooling and decided that rather than have a non-puppet in the seat, they would use an old man with issues to keep getting their way. And they can see what his state is. They knew before we did. the process of Alzheimers is well known. Alz people do not do well in crowds or places of confusion/activity. It upsets them more and more as time passes. They were going to literally use him to death rather than have a conservative on the team.

That is as evil as it gets, especially when the Right are supposed to be the ones with the moral high ground.

There are actually quite a few Cochran supporters on FR. They are being very quiet at the moment. In their defense, they probably did not know any more than we did about the health of their candidate and right now they are probably more concerned about their friend than about the political circus. The real villains in this case are the manipulators who talked him into running again.

It is truly evil. What’s worse is they’re probably hoping Chris will say something about it so they can get the sympathy vote.

What I find incredible is that he’s still so close in the polls.

The power of people willing to bury heads in the sand combined with the manipulative skills of a party is an amazing thing.

I think they mostly want the status quo, but I doubt they know the reality of this. If they find out, it will change.

I agree and relatively speaking .....I know its hard for Freepers to grasp..Cochran was fairly decent till Lott took off

He was pretty much under Lotts wing which hate him or not was more conservative than First....or apparently Thad too whose ACU rating has collapsed to 69 in the Obama years

Unacceptable for a state where nearly 90% of woods vote GOP...boy the irony there

Anyhow

Thad should a left last cycle....something is obviously amiss

Poor man

Stick a fork in Thad, he’s done. He couldn’t beat Chris McDaniel in the primary and turnout will be much lower for the runoff. McDaniel is a formidable candidate and his supporters are energized. Look for a “Brat-sized” thumping of Cochran in the run-off.

On the positive side, Thad will have much more time to spend with is good friend/landlord, Kay Webber. Better yet, they can do all of their traveling on their own dime, and not the taxpayer’s.

The decline in his ACU rating might match his mental decline and the ‘vote here’ agenda of his staff.

I wonder who miss Kay voted for in ‘08...

His statement that either mccain or obama would make a fine president struck me as wonky. Likely the dementia had set in prior to that.

Not from this here fellow harpster you won't.

I was on the phone this morning to our congressman, who is hoping to become our new senator, and advised him once again that if they simply slide back to the same-ol' same-ol' then the letter-writing, phone-calling, door-knocking campaign begins to send him straight back to his good daddy's house-building business.

Yes, I know it's blaspheme too but with the likes of Corker, McCarthy, Cochrane ad nauseum we may as well turn it over the Reid, Pelosi and Elizabeth Warren right now.

I think Mc Daniel should run ads of this done in a tasteful way. Something along the lines of: "Thank you for all your years of service. It is time for Thad Cochran to retire and enjoy the rest of his life. And shame on all the back room politicians who are using this man for their own gain. Vote McDaniel, and let Thad Cochran have the retirement he deserves." Then show one of these clips.

Make it so people are doing the right thing for Thad by voting for Chris.

There is no difference. People scream bloody murder but at the end of the day the RINOs side with dems on all the big issues. Votes are manipulated, speeches are made, arms are twisted and by miracle, the Dems get their way when it matters most. With just enough GOP help to matter.

Odd that.

The other day another lesser evil fan tried cornering me on the Dems are worse thing. I asked him to show me a quantifiable difference.

I am still waiting. In fact, not one answer ever has been given with proof to back it up in all the time I’ve been here.

Not one.

This is sad.

But it now shows that Cochran could well lose the general election. If the NRSC is serious about winning the Senate, it will now shift its support to McDaniel.

Also, this was an unforced error. No one can say that McDaniel violated Reagan's eleventh commandment on this.

Yes. You understand the right approach. Turn the sympathy angle our way. (And, besides, it is the most honorable way for all concerned to actually address the reality.)

Mocking is neither fair to anyone afflicted with an age caused decline; and it certainly is not the way to motivate anyone else to work for the alternative candidate. While one can claim the mantle of realism, we should not forget that a sizable section of the electorate vote purely on emotion.

“LOL first the animals deal and now this!”

You left out the $250,000 given to Thad’s PAC in late May from bloomberg. The NRA apparently forgave Thad for his 1991 vote to ban “assault” weapons, will they forgive him for accepting money from the anti Second Amendment crowd?
