Thad Cochran: 'I Don't Remember Ever Saying' I Did 'Indecent Things With Animals' As A Child
Breitbart ^ | 13 Jun 2014 | by MATTHEW BOYLE

Posted on 06/13/2014 2:31:57 PM PDT by kingattax

When asked by a local television reporter to respond to his bizarre comments about unsavory acts he said he committed with animals as a child, Cochran said he doesn’t remember.

“I think maybe I was misunderstood,” Cochran said. “I don’t remember ever saying [that].”

He’s not doing himself any favors, that’s for sure.

Time to go back to the pre-election strategy. Keeping Thad in a locked room and letting fatass Barbour do all the campaigning

It certainly sounds more and more like senile dementia.

But McConnel and a fairly long list of senate Repubs are working to keep old Thad in the fold for six more years. Sending more big money to Mississippi.

The only other theory that is remotely possible is that Cochran is tired, or having a twinge of conscience and is deliberately trying to throw the runoff to McDaniel.

And this is very sad. He is old and is being exploited by others. He was a good servant of the state of a Mississippi for many years. It is time for someone else to serve Mississippi and the nation.

He just told a reporter he did not know Cantor lost... Days after the fact. How can you NOT know that? The guy is senile and needs to retire. McCain too, we need a term limit and age limit amendment to the Constitution.

Doesn’t everyone bash in the heads of excess puppies and kittens with rocks? And sex. How is a farm boy supposed to learn about sex other than watching animals? And having sex with animals?

For all we know he meant that he and the other kids tormented or killed the animals. The word “indecent” has typically held a wider connotation in tradition Southern vernacular. Nonetheless, whatever he did or didn’t do, the man is bat-sh*t crazy and needs to be put in a rocking chair in front of a TV somewhere warm and cozy, not serving in the United States Senate.

He failed to remember Brat’s win over Cantor, now he fails to remember indecent comments. This joker is in the same class as war hero McCain. He should check himself in.

Shame on Boss Hogg for using this sick old man. He should be in a nursing home with his wife, not running for senate.

He apparently has problems, those who have kept him from retiring and kept him isolated and in this race should urge him to retire effective immediately and in the spirit of “unity” of all Mississippi Republicans Governor Bryant should appoint Senator McDaniel to serve the balance of Thad’s term.

It’s on tape. I read the transcript, & the comments sounded dead serious. Others watched the tape, & concluded Cochran might have been trying to make a weird/bizarre joke.

It’s at the 1.08 mark:

This last minute melt down has happened before, and for much higher stakes!! Remember when Herman Cain stunned every Tea Partyer by his sweeping ignorance on world affairs and geography? Sometimes, you have to see what is before you and be thankful you dodged that bullet in spite of yourself. When Cain let me down like that, all of a sudden that ‘lady’ Ginger White sounded belivable.

Posted earlier...applies here

I catch hell for harping on the GOP but I mean come on. this is what they have become? Yes it is. They saw 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.

Thad Cochran beats Chucky Schummer or Dick Durbin or Barbara Boxer by a mile. However his time is up. He is the proverbial old white guy from GOP establishment. We need new blood in senate to augment Cruz, Lee & Paul.

Reagan was a good President but he suffered Alzheimer’s soon after retirement. Had he been healthy I doubt that he would keep running for political offices into his 80’s or even 90’s as some politicians these days try to do. Whatever happened to retiring with dignity? When the Constitution was written, 50 years old was considered an old man. He has been a Senator since 1978! Needs to be replaced with a young conservative.

With proper honor, those whose memory was failing would realize it’s time to pursue a different stage in their life. I’m sad to hear this, I guess his memory really is failing. Well with the goldplated medical plans that Congressmen get, he doesn’t have any excuse not to get checked out pronto.

Power structure would probably need Thad to win then step down due to illness. That sets up a pro-immigration Senator of their choice. Section (2) of their law allows appointment until the seat is filled by election.

§ 23-15-855

What is Bryants stand on illegal immigration?

If so, he could do that in a debate.

He won't debate, and says that America "is not a debating society."

That's not the words of someone with regrets, who is trying to throw the election after the fact.

The election for a successor must take place in 90 days, or in the same year if there is a general election. That resignation/temporary appointment is pretty fancy tap-dancing for one additional vote, which probably wouldn’t even be ‘additional’.
