McCain is helping his colleague. McCain is very collegial. To those who belong to the club.

McCain will really help him rally those worried that Cochran’s too old to know what’s going on or that he too often compromises conservative principles in the name of senate comity.

This is a problem. If I was a Mississippian I would be offended that anyone from outside my state, especially an elected official from another, came to try and influence voting in my state. Incumbent politicians should not be allowed to “endorse” anyone from a state they cannot vote in.

Surely MI conservatives aren’t fooled by this liar, who has a 41% conservative rating based on his votes. He hasn’t lived in MI for years, so his down home blitzkrieg in the days before the runoff should not fool anyone.

For example, Nancy the evil is in a safe district, therefore she forwards more money out of her coffers to other candidates than any other member of Congress. That screams cronyism. I know I am idealistic, but I am sick of back door peddling and deal making to prolong the ruling classes tenure.

We need the contrast between the useless, compromising, self-serving, old guard, and the renewal of the foundational principles this country was built upon.

I wonder ... will McCain campaigning for Cochran really help Cochran ... or will it really help McDaniel? Like Obama being asked *not* to campaign for democrats for fear of damaging their chances, has McCain reached that poison pill level yet? I've begun to think so.

McStain and Cochran, fellow sewer RATs. I sure hope McDaniel wins, it will send a bigger shockwave through the RAT/RINO cabal than Brat did, and we sure do need a shockwave at this juncture.

Thanks for the ping Black Agnes. This will be very interesting. The Tea Party Express will have their bus in Biloxi on Sunday at a rally for McDaniel. I wonder if both rallies will be equally covered by the media.

I don’t follow her that closely, but I wouldn’t dismiss her yet.

There are things I like about her, and there are some things that trouble me about her.

I don’t spend much time praising her, because she gets praised here non-stop, over the top IMO. There’s simply no reason for me to add to that.

I think she could turn out to have a great impact on the nation. It remains to be seen where her final impact will be.

The poll you cite to was one of two that came out on the same date:

Chism Strategies (D) 6/13 - 6/13 821 LV 47 48 Cochran +1

The Polling Company (R) 6/12 - 6/13 501 LV 52 40 McDaniel +12.

So, Chism Strategies had Cochran up by 1 and The Polling Company had McDaniel up by 12. Chism sampled 821 likely voters; TPC only 501. I am not sure about the demographic breakdown of the two polls. My understanding is that generally a poll spread over more than one day is more reliable. The TPC poll was held over two days, Chism’s over one.

The headline is misleading:

According to the article, McDaniel’s guest at his rally is Chuck Woolery, not Palin.

When McKook had taken bribes from the Keating Five, Cochran was there for him. So, its the honorable thing for McKook to do. He owes one.

From the article>> McCain’s running mate on his presidential ticket, Sarah Palin, has endorsed Cochran’s opponent Chris McDaniel. McDaniel will have a rally at Hobby Lobby in Biloxi that same day featuring game show host Chuck Woolery.

I have been told by Arizona residents that Democrats can vote in the Republican Primary. This helps McCain beat off challengers. I can accept that.

What bothers me is the people who actually come out and endorse the guy. Beats anything I’ve ever seen. And then folks defend the person(s) for doing it.

Then everyone carps for another six years, rinse and repeat.

it’s as if we had a death wish as a party, even a nation.

What also bothers me is that he runs as a Republican. He totally almost single-handedly destroys the brand.

This is what I found when I looked the guy up in 2010, trying to talk sense into people. You wouldn’t believe the push-back I got even here.

Folks just idolize the guy. They’ll be quiet right now, but if he runs again, you can bet the farm there will be a contingent running around the forum with McCain pooper scoopers.

In his own book he states he started fights during recess in grade-school for the fun of it. He enjoyed hurting other kids on the playground.

Then you follow his record throught flight school where he was just a big a screw-up as he was at Annapolis, where he graduated close to 894th in a class if 899. (Numbers not exact, but this was his record in real terms)

Then his military service...

Once he returned from Vietnam he started it all over again.

Soon he was in Congress and then the Senate. He was party of the Keating Five, got the most money from Keating and didn’t report it until seven years after the fact when he was being investigated. He made restitution and received nothing so much as a reprimand for it.

Since then he left a s—t crumb trail from many Leftist efforts along the way, teaming up with the likes of Kennedy, Kerry, Feingold... He has joined in to help gun control measure pass. He has backed candidates that supported abortion. He’s had his fingers in global warming... you name it, this guy has sold us out more times than Obama. No, I’m not kidding.

It was his demand that the Libyan rebels be armed. I demanded the Syrian rebels be armed. He stands with terrorists to get his picture taken.

I have a hard time believing this man has done just about anything honorable in his life. My take on it, is we haven’t heard the half of this one’s evil deeds.

And have wondered why many FReeper's seem to like him.

I never did....despite his "service"...He always stuck me as wrong.

No different than Kerry, IMO......

The difference, is not that he is different than Kerry, but Kerry takes up a liberal slot in the Democrat side. McCain takes up a slot that should be a Conservative’s.

He defeats our cause just by being there.

McCain’s family is from MS. The Navy base in Meridian is named for his father, Admiral McCain.

I don’t know what to make of this development. I don’t know many who like McCain.

I think his campaigning for Cochran is a stretch.

The one thing I absolutely love about her is that she has great political instincts.

Her track record beats Rove’s, and that’s good enough for me.
