Chris McDaniel Said Something So Offensive, Thad Cochranís Campaign Canít Even Spell It
Slate ^ | JUNE 17 2014 | David Weigel

Nearly a month ago, I defended then-struggling U.S. Senate candidate Chris McDaniel from one of the dumber charges lobbed his way. As a radio host, McDaniel had once joked about a candidate "using her boobies" to run for office. Allies of Sen. Thad Cochran found this potentially offensive enough to move votes; I pedantically pointed out that the candidate in question, 2006 Alabama Libertarian Party hopeful Loretta Nall, literally did talk about her endowments on the trail and in earned media.

One lost primary later, one week before the decisive runoff, Thad Cochran's campaign is returning to the well. After blasting mailboxes with a speak-and-spell mailer that played McDaniel's quotes, the campaign is up with an ad that "censors" them, bleeping out words like "boobies" to make the quotes sound even worse. (It's a bleeping technique that has been used elsewhere for high comedy.)

Wow, the desperation is getting thick. Couldn't Cochran just get President Obama sign an executive order reelecting him?

Cochran’s just offended because he is a boob.

Desperation and flop sweat fear.

It’s amazing and mind boggling that Cochran is bringing up the use of the term “bobbies” after Cochran’s own use of the term “farm animals”.

What were they thinking

Maybe Harry Reid could just deem him reelected.

Oh and by the way, Loretta Nell, the Libertarian Party candidate for Gov and the founder of the United States Marijuana Party (USMJP) which calls for the legalization of cannabis did actively advertise her “boobies” during her write in campaign for gov so McDaniel was talking straight truth on that one.

Why not? Stranger and stupider things unimaginable have happened non-stop in the last five years.

McDaniel said “boobies”, holy crap, that’s even worse than “mamacitas”.

Why don’t you tell us what “inappropriate things” you did with animals, Thad?

And how do you feel about your supporter, Brent Fav-re, sending out pictures of his junk?

I hope Sen. Cochran wasn't watching Lost in Space in the Mid-60s. Dr. Smith (a great stand-in for the GOP-E) repeatedly uses the phrase "Bubble headed booby". (example at 19 seconds in on this link.)
