Mark Levin opened his show talking about the Cochran/McDaniel election last night, saying that after what happened in this race he wouldnt vote for Thad Cochran because hed be betraying himself to do so:
If I lived in Mississippi, I would not vote for Thad Cochran, because Thad Cochran has besmirched me.
Thad Cochran has told Democrats, minorities, liberals, anybody who would listen that Im a racist and that I want to stop black people from voting.
People assigned to him, people associated with him Cochran hasnt denounced any of this. Mitch McConnell hasnt denounced any of this. John McCain hasnt denounced any of this. Haley Barbour hasnt denounced any of this.
Theyre having a party! They won!
They won, and why? Theyre so desperate to keep a constitutional conservative out of the Senate? Theyre so desperate to protect a man in the early stages of dementia, because hell vote the way they want him to vote, because they can control him?
And thats what weve become? Thats what the party of Lincoln has become? The party of Abraham Lincoln has become the party of race-baiting and food stamps? The party of Ronald Reagan has become the party of race-baiting and food stamps?
This is what happens when you have no principles. This is what happens when youve lost your moorings.
Reagan appealed to conservative Democrats on a cultural level. He appealed to their highest aspirations, not fear mongering, not race baiting, not by promoting big government programs.
No, theres no way Thad Cochran would get my vote. Id be betraying myself.

That’s a great idea. I’ll do that if I get any but I haven’t gotten any in quite some time. And the envelopes always seem to require a stamp, so I don’t bother.
But if I get one of those postage paid ones, I’ll definitely do that.
What the national republican leadership did in your state was reprehensible. It is clear that a substantial majority of republican voters wanted a change and under the existing election law were denied that change by crossover democrat voters. I understand your frustration and anger but would respectfully suggest a different course in response.
Since your side is clearly a majority of the republican party, rather than electing a democrat to a six year term, it would be more productive to mobilize your majority to change the election law to eliminate the open primary system. The state representatives and governor would find it very difficult to resist this needed reform if faced with a determined majority of their voter base. With a closed primary system in place, future primary elections could not be hijacked by crossing party lines.
I am not as close to this issue as you, but it would seem to me that the people who perpetrated this injustice would love to see those of you who oppose their control withdraw from the process. I would rather take away their power to manipulate the system than to let them have their way. Your group clearly are a majority of the party; don’t let the rascals run you out of your own party.
Cotton, let’s find out who these other State politicians are who supported
Cochran and these despicable dirty tricks before we send them out to vote
in other MS State races.
They deserve to be voted out, as well.
All these MS hack politicians who supported Cochran need to be voted out, as well.
If you want to end the corruption and lies in DC, you have to vote for the less corrupt and more truthful candidate. The corrupt Oligarchy always gives them selves away by the dirty attack style campaigns they run, especially in their primaries.
In 2008, Thad Cochran won with 62% if the vote. This is with heavy Democrat turnout for Obama. If McDaniels runs as write-in, he could win with plurality.
They need to lose this seat and SEE that it was because Conservatives would not forgive what Cochran did to McDaniel.
As for your game board metaphor: We lined up for a game of chess against the GOP-E, and they poured gasoline on the board and on us, and set both on fire. Then they declared themselves the winners and popped the champagne corks because technically, they “won.”
There is nothing I want more right now from the November elections than to see Thad Cochran lose, and I will drive to Mississippi and help with a Third-Party or Write-In campaign if there is one.
“People assigned to him, people associated with him Cochran hasnt denounced any of this.”
I don’t think Cochran can remember who helped him dress this morning either. Cochran is a senile stage prop. The Republican machine is who this should be directed to.
I will never forget.
We will beat the evil GOPe by getting people to vote for Childers.
Do you not understand the evil the GOPe used by accusing the Tea Party of racism???? That is absolutely unforgivable.
I live next to MS. I will encourage ALL I know in MS to vote for Childers.
First and foremost, the evil GOPe RINO scum must be politically destroyed.
I guess the voters didn’t think that way in Oklahoma ... :-) ...
I think you need to educate yourself.
The GOP establishment is truly at war with us and will use the most vile Democrat tactics like race baiting and fraud to beat conservatives in their own party yet folks like yourself still argue to be pragmatic and appease these whores who detest us.
We lost in 2012 by supporting their MOR crap which enthused no one.
McConnell is in trouble in normally GOP Kentucky for being uninspiring at home even though he is a chieftain in DC
Continuing to support these people only gives us 1970s era Sam Nunn or Scoop Jackson style Democrats with GOP monikers....which anyone here old enough knows this is what these folks are.
What Barbour did in Mississippi with liberal Yankee money....Union money...environmentalist cash....the funds of our enemies
Is my Rubicon...I’m done.
I was where you are now during Bush’s largesse.....
You really should inform yourself what they did in Mississippi
They may be more educated than you think ... and not merely “thinking your way” ... :-) ...
This is exactly what Obama, Reid, and Pelosi are hoping for. A republican senate with a couple of RINO’s is much better than a democratic senate with a thoroughly conservative (and ineffective) minority. Too much is at stake in the country at large to pass up the chance for a republican congress. If there truly were enough conservative/ libertarian voters to carry the state of Mississippi in the general election, why couldn’t they easily outnumber Cochran’s supporters (including the democratic crossovers)in the primary? Please hold your nose and save the country!
BE SURE TO DUCT TAPE A CINDER BLOCK or OTHER VERY HEAVY ITEMS TO THE LETTER BEFORE RETURNING IT!
Lol I forgot to say flame away. Conservatives should be able toface the hard truth. They lost this one. You never heard of a dirty campaign flyer before? You don’t like crossover votes? Then change the rules or win by more votes, like McDaniels was supposed to do.
I got a contribution call from the RNC. I cut the guy off and said I’m not going to give anything and please make a note the reason was they are not conservative enough. Then I hung up.
But I ain’t voting for any Democrats or letting them win elections or control the Senate and those of you who would are the reason I have to live under Barack Hussein Obama.
I guess you’ll just have to vote in Oklahoma to tell Oklahoma what to do ... :-) ...
This will go down as a Pyrrhic victory for GOPe. They lost far more than they won on Tuesday night.
That’s the nice thing about states ... each state gets the representatives that it wants for its people.
Agreed! TC has to go!
Now, let Cochran get those same Democrat votes to win the Senate seat.
The RINO’s are earning their demise. They are pathetic.
Sadly, MS doesn’t allow write-in candidates.
Yes I agree entirely but those were the rules. If they violated it and voted twice then M should challenge it.
