‘Absolutely unbelievable’: Glenn sounds off on Thad Cochran’s slim victory in Mississippi

40-year incumbent Senator Thad Cochran (R-MS) pulled out an eleventh-hour victory over Mississippi State Senator Chris McDaniel (R) in Tuesday’s runoff election. Returns showed Cochran with a lead of about 3,800 votes – holding 50.5% of the vote to McDaniel’s 49.5% – with 98% of precincts reporting. Earlier this month, McDaniel actually won the popular vote against Cochran in the Republican primary, but he failed to reach the 50% threshold needed to avoid a runoff by just tenths of a percent.

On radio this morning, a fired up Glenn explained why he is “really, really pissed off” about the Mississippi results given the questionable tactics used by the Cochran campaign to secure victory.

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

“I’m just sick to my stomach,” Glenn said. “I thought I was living in the country where liberty had a chance, where fair play had a chance, where we weren’t talking about a GOP – a Grand Old Party, emphasis on old, outdated, dusty, irrelevant, and never ever going to see a dime from people like me ever again. I really thought that we had a chance of some common sense. But no, no, no.”

Most polling leading up to Tuesday’s election showed McDaniel enjoying a lead within or slightly above the margin of error, and yet he came up short. So what happened? According to reports, the GOP set up a ground game to court black Democrats who did not participate in the state’s Democratic primary. By law, Democrats who did not cast a vote in the Democratic primary can vote in the Republican primary/runoff and vice versa.

The Washington Post reports:

Cochran relied heavily on boosting voter turnout in the runoff among not only mainstream Republicans but also black Democrats, whom his campaign and its allies aggressively courted in the final days of the campaign.

[…]

In nearly every Mississippi county, voter turnout was up over the inconclusive June 3 primary. But precinct totals show it was substantially higher in heavily African American areas. In the 24 counties with a majority black population, turnout increased by 39.4 percent, giving Cochran a big edge.

For example, in densely populated Hinds County, which includes the capital of Jackson, turnout was up nearly 50 percent over the June 3 primary and Cochran beat McDaniel by nearly 11,000 votes.

“Now, I have a question for every black Democrat in Mississippi. What the hell has this 90-year-old fart – a white Republican, the same white Republican that for years the Democrats had been telling you are nothing but old racists – you tell me exactly what Thad Cochran did for you,” Glenn asked exasperatedly. “What the GOP did is they reached out to the black Democrats and got the black Democrats to vote… So they’re much more comfortable with having Democrats come out and vote than having their base come out and vote.”

As Stu explained, many several establishment Republicans gave both their endorsement and money to the Cochran campaign. Breitbart reports Cochran’s Mississppi colleague Sen. Roger Wicker (R-MS) along with Sens. Lisa Murkowski (R-AL), Rob Portman (R-OH), Lamar Alexander (R-TN), Orrin Hatch (R-UT), Chuck Grassley (R-IA), John Barrasso (R-WY), John Thune (R-SD), John Cornyn (R-TX), Bob Corker (R-TN), Susan Collins (R-ME), Kelly Ayotte (R-NH), Dean Heller (R-NV), Richard Shelby (R-AL), and Mitch McConnell (R-KY) all lined up to support the entrenched politician.

“Absolutely unbelievable,” Glenn said. “[But] let’s look at the good news. This means… King Obama has done it. Race relations are healed. Because when you can get an old white southern Republican lighting a fire under people – 40% increase in African-American voting – we have been healed. Everybody go to the ocean and look because the sea level is going to start going down at any moment.”

“Amazing thing: Not only has it been healed, it’s been healed in the last few weeks because none of these people decided to vote for Thad Cochran initially,” Stu added. “They just all decided in the last few weeks how important he was for the state of Mississippi, [and] they had to turn out yesterday.”

    Unfortunately we are living the nightmare of a dumbed down, uninformed voter pool. Add to that all the people who don’t even bother to vote and this is how we got where we are today. There is also rampant fraud, particularly in the presidential election, which goes unchecked. These career trough feeders are not what our Founders had in mind. If there is one thing I would add to the Constitution it would be mandatory term limits.

  • Anonymous

    I may be wrong, but I really think that this is a positive sign. It took the establishment pulling out all of the stops and running a “no holds barred” campaign to barely (and perhaps not even that if McDaniel challenges the vote) win. This is the same as Goliath barely winning against David. It tells me that David is a lot stronger than he looks and Goliath is a lot weaker than we’ve been told. The difference is that David has a lot of room to grow and Goliath is pretty topped out.

    Were the results this time ideal? Perhaps not, but the more important question is what did we learn from this that will help us be successful in the future?

  • Joe Kaminski

    A-Freakin-men. Anyone with a functioning brain in their head knew Romney was going to lose as soon as he was the nominee. Glenn supported him, I’m guessing because they belong to the same church. And had Glenn just came out and said as much, I wouldn’t have been pissed at him for it because hell, at least then he would be honest with everyone. Instead he tried to make it sound like Romney was going to be so much better than Obama and I’m sorry, but all of us knew back in 2008 that an establishment republican is no better than a democrat because the establishment party has been corrupted to the core. WE KNEW. And WE are becoming a much larger voting block than THEY ever imagined. That’s why THEY had all the Ron Paul delegates locked out of the convention, and that’s why people like rove and cheney dump millions into establishment campaigns because they are terrified of losing their stranglehold on the country. Unfortunately for them I don’t think their millions of dollars can buy voters anymore, though we may want to look at who manufactures the machines and who tallies up the vote count. Just remember the Battle of Athens because the more crap the GOP pulls, the closer we are coming to a repeat of history.

    Lets make this a little more inclusive..it is the establishment of both parties against the everyday people of America. That includes people who may not associate with the Tea Party.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…if you’ve been in Congress since before widespread internet use, you need to go. It’s Congress, not a retirement home.

    I’d also add no vote for people on government assistance. It’s a conflict of interest.

    Maybe there should be a write-in campaign. Those who are Democrats and voted in the Republican primary should have to vote Republican in the regular election. The law should be changed. In this case, however, it won’t make much difference. Cochran is as corrupt as a Democrat.

    Yes, Glenn, it is reprehensible that Cochran played dirty in this run-off, and it is unfortunate that so many other GOP members supported him, including my Senator- Richard Shelby. But politics is dog eat dog, so Cochran did what “ALL” politicans do and that is whatever is necessary to win. Do we dare encourage McDaniel supporters to vote Democrat this fall, or hold our nose and get behind Mr. Beastiality to help throw Dirty Harry Reid from power? It’s the old “lesser of two evils.”

    This is not as bad as it seems. Not good surely but not bad. It exposes how fragile the GOP/RINO/republican situation is. The TEA Party IS undermining the Establishment Republicans and stiffening the backbones of many of the ones that haven’t been pushed aside. The TEA Party vetted candidates have done and are doing a STUPENDOUS job.

    We will NOT “win” every fight. We WILL “lose” often. The Dem/Lib/Prog/Socialists have been working assiduously for 60 years to get us to this point. We will not solve the entire problem over night.

    MY ONLY REAL QUESTION HERE IS … Since when can somebody vote in a “Primary” who IS NOT a member of that “Party”? I thought I knew a lot but … I never heard of people not of the “Party” being Primaried getting a say in the voting.

    Maybe the rules are different in different states? Or is this just one more aspect of changing the rules to “fit the situation”?

    No, democrats didn’t vote for Cochran because they thought he was the better candidate. They did it because they knew he wasn’t. I used to have relatives who always VOTED democrat, but were registered republican just so they screw up primaries. I even stayed a registered democrat after I became a republican voter (Reagan) because I thought I could do the same thing. I could only stay a registered democrat for just a couple of years though. Once the scales fall from your eyes you see that ALL democrats are a POS! Now it looks like a lot of republicans are too!

    Then if those on government assistance shouldn’t be allowed to vote, neither should those with business interests because there are pro-business politicians, that would be a conflict of interest too…and no, I am not suggesting this, just trying to show how absurd that would be. Then what’s next…people of different races than you not allowed to vote, those not of the same religion, or maybe those not of the same gender? That is exactly what the progressives want..if someone doesn’t agree with them they have no voice, is that how those not of the progressives want to be too? As long as someone is a legal resident and citizen of the US, and of age, they should be allowed to vote. I do agree with term limits, and not allowing those of one party to vote in another party’s primaries. As far as poundsand’s comment of “dumbed down and uniformed” voters…it’s more like continually lied to and confused on what the truth is anymore from both parties.

    What is so sad is that the GOP is so mired in their own deceit that they had to rely on Democrats in order to win. Well, come November Cochran has to go up against Childers who will probably be the winner. It’ll backfire on the GOP.

    Cochran was a self proclaimed corrupt politician. That proclamation came when he crossed into liberal territory to win this republican election. Clearly he is a demented old man who, like John McCain has outstayed his usefulness [to the voters] in DC. And like McCain, he is a hanger-on. Like McCain, he disgusts me. He freely admitted doing “unspeakable things with animals” yet the Mississippi electorate is OK with that?????? His liberal daughter is a reflection, and a poor one at that, of this old man. No doubt, Cochran did not think it up himself to go into liberal black neighborhoods and court their votes. The GOP is a well organized of self serving old geezers who will stop at nothing to keep power. The black voters who allowed themselves to be used by a very corrupt republican politician machine should be ashamed. Ignorance is bliss I’ve heard and those communities must be blissful today! I will not send another dime to the GOP. I can’t tell the long term GOP congressmen and senators from the democrats. If it doesn’t matter who wins, why should I waste my money? Likely, at age 76, Cochran won’t live to finish his 6 year term and then what stupidity will Mississippi thrust upon us? At least we won’t have to pay his retirement for many years like Obama is poised to get. A bit of a silver lining.

    Why do you have to see a slipper slope in the proposal that those receiving welfare, almost exclusively to actual earned income, to lose their voting rights while they are on welfare. That would be another great incentive for them to get off the dole. An acquaintance argued with me about how MS would lose all that seniority in the Senate if Cochran lost, therefore making the argument of always voting for the incumbent. Have you applied your same slippery slope argument to gay marriage? Just another step in allowing adults to marry minors irregardless of the wishes of the parents, Marriage being extended to include human/animal combinations, etc. If you say that is ludicrous, then why isn’t it ludicrous for your point?

    They are allowing cross-over voters. We also allow cross-over voting in California. This is a quick way of sabotaging an election. So you don’t even have to re-register to vote for the opposite party. (that will be their next trick, if these cross-over votes are thrown out, which they won’t be) So remember the next time you vote in a state that allows cross-over voting, everyone do a write in candidate of Micky mouse for the Democrat candidate, so this way the Dems candidate will be Micky Mouse against a real republican or Libertarian candidate. I think Mark Lavine has the best idea, everyone in Mississippi do a write in Candidate of Chris McDaniel in the General election.
    They have learned how to cheat. Cross-over voting is the easiest way to cheat.

  • dylanfan1962

    I don’t think I – in good conscience – can vote for a Republican anymore just because they are “my team”. From now on, they have to earn it – even the Tea Party Republicans. I will not divulge the state in which I live, but in our last gubernatorial election the two main candidates were a big-government Republican versus a borderline-socialist Democrat. Obviously, the big-government Republican would have been the lesser of two eveils, but you know what? I voted for the Libertarian candidate.

    Did I agree with every single thing he stood for? No, but we’re talking maybe 2 issues I disagreed versus the other 18 I wholeheartedly supported. Did I know/think he could win? Not a chance! Was he truly the better candidate of the three? YES!!!!

    Unless someone like Rand Paul runs as the GOP candidate for the upcoming Presidential Election, I will NOT vote Republican. I just barely voted for Romney the last time around. If that means I “throw my vote away” by voting for a third party, then so be it. At least I can sleep at night.

  • mojo1633

    I’ll be honest, I’m failing to understand what Glenn is so “pissed off” about. He’s mad b/c Cochran successfully courted otherwise indifferent black voters who didn’t vote in the Democratic primary? Why would that piss you off so much? If McDaniel was my guy, I’d be pissed off b/c he didn’t think of the same thing first! I don’t find anything here that smells of dirty politics, just successful grassroots campaign work by making the most of a second chance to win in a runoff. Sounds to me like Glenn is just upset about his guy losing the primary in a runoff. These aren’t new rules. If you don’t like them, push for change.

    BTW, I don’t meant to be snooty in my previous comment. I’m just trying to point out that while you may not like the fact that Democratic voters can vote in the Republican primary if they didn’t vote in their own (and vice-versa it’s important to note), exploiting those potential votes is far from dirty politics, much less being reason to go on the tirade that Glenn did, questioning whether we live in a free society and such. There are many, way worse things going on to get that upset about.

    I am from MS and I hate to say this, but I believe that this is about giving more government assistance. I am not talking about race, I am talking about ignorant people that want to remain ignorant and keep getting free food, cellphone, healthcare, rent or whatever else is free. These people are truly ignorant and don’t realize what a drain on society their situation causing. By the way, the definition of ignorance means not knowing something. I love MS and am a teacher in the school system, but I see a lot of this type of indoctrination in the school system. These kids are so used to not having to be accountable for anything and getting everything free. Most kids get free breakfast and lunch. Some parents even believe the school system is responsible for buying them school supplies. It is sad.

  • Keith Daugherty

    First of all jim, do you even know the definition of ludicrous? “so foolish, unreasonable, or out of place as to be amusing; ridiculous”…my point was that taking away voting rights of those who have them merely because they were on assistance was just as ridiculous as saying those who worked or had business affiliations shouldn’t be allowed to vote because there would also be a conflict of interest there also, then I went on to say I wouldn’t propose that either. To bring in “gay marriage” about a voting issue is ludicrous, since you were the one that brought it up, not me…that was ludicrous as it was so out of place as to be amusing and ridiculous. Know your definitions of words before using them or someone may think you are one of those progressives that try to change the meanings of words to fit one’s own agenda.

    No, I think you missed the point. We (Mississippians) didn’t want another obstinate blowhard in the Senate. McDaniel was just a bunch of rhetoric with no clue what the real problems are.

    It wasn’t out of support for Thad that some people voted for Thad, it’s because Chris McDaniel is not who we need in a position of power. He blusters about restoring the Constitution, but I’ve yet to see where it’s been lost. The Tea Party is no more in touch with this country’s actual woes than are the establishment GOP, but they’re a lot more unhinged. I’ll stick with the devil I know.

    PS – Although from MS, I didn’t vote in the primary, although I fault no Democrat that did. It’s an open primary, hence not illegal to do.

    Actually Mike…you need to get out your basic business economics book. Businesses will charge higher prices in order to absorb taxes, protect their profits, and pass that tax cost onto the consumer. Who is a consumer? Anyone who consumes services or goods, including those on assistance who have to use their assistance to pay the higher prices passed on to them by the businesses that instead of taking less profit to pay their taxes pass on that cost to ALL consumers. The biggest suicide for democracy are those who don’t understand they are using an elitist communistic philosophy to wage a war between classes thereby separating the peoples from each other and allowing the elite political to begin making the decisions for the whole. If these businesses are so interested in those on assistance getting off assistance for the betterment of the country they would be creating jobs instead of trying to find ways to eliminate jobs in order to boost their profit ratio…and would also stop hiring illegal immigrants to do the work on other jobs, stop shipping jobs to other countries, and would lower prices to take the load off ALL consumers during a time of economic instability. Something that in the past (history) was done, that many in business don’t want to do today. Your comment ” If you’re not contributing it’s preposterous that you should have a say” sounds much like those of fascism that said if one is unable to contribute one has no right to exist.”

    Not voting while on welfare is a great idea, but…The low information voters have already sold their votes for social programs (free goodies). There is no question in my mind the majority would just sign away their voting privilege to continue receiving them. Most wouldn’t care a bit. There would be no great migration off public assistance to get voting privilege back.

    I stopped donating my already stretched retirement income when the best that the GOP could front for a Presidential front runner was John McCain in 2008 and Mitt Romney in 2012. (although either would have been much better than the P.O.S. that is the current occupant of the White House.
    Another factor is the GOP’s failure to block both far left/liberal/progressive’s Sotomaeyer and Kagen as Supreme Court Justices.
    ‘Baby’ Ruth Ginsberg has stated she will retire before the end of Obama’s term, to allow him the nomination of an additional liberal to the SCOTUS.
    That my friends, unless blocked by the GOP, will set the stage for a far left/liberal/progressive Supreme Court majority far into the future of this country.

    The reason blacks voted for CockRan is because he created a race baiting robo-call campaign targeted at black communities that made them think the other “Tea Party” guy was going to put them back in chains. Did anyone hear the phone call audio? Mark Levin played it on his radio show and it was despicable. GOP RINOs need to be punished HARD for this travesty. It would also help if these states with idiotic election law that allows opposing parties to vote in the other parties primary put an end to that practice.

  • Alex Clawson

    This is nearly the answer. A single primary without party division, followed by a single run-off with two candidates. This is how we run elections in countries we occupy. It allows third party candidates, as well as hard to win states, whether it be red, or blue state, to run without hurting parties they may closely affiliate. If the 2nd place republican primary candidate had more votes than the 1st place demacrat primary candidate, why should the demacrat candidate be in the final election? The current answer is simply because they are democarat. Vice versa as well.

  • Alex Clawson

    Check to see if there is a Libertarian candidate running, That has got to be better than either Cochran or the Demacrat.

  • Mr. Black

    I don’t see a problem with people having a say in who potentially goes to the Senate in their own state. As I said, it is not illegal.

    The main point is, my state is not going to contribute to increasing the crazy in Washington. That’s all I care about. You want to do an investigation to see if anyone who voted in the Democratic primary voted in this one? Have at it. I know people who worked the polls. The names of those people clearly marked. I know of one friend who personally turned away an Episcopal priest because he voted for the Dem in the primary. My friend is a Democrat.

    Got any evidence of that happening? Let’s see it. Otherwise, there is no basis for saying what went on today was “wrong”. And in case it escaped your notice, this tactic is equally available to Republicans. The way Republicans have gerrymandered the districts in this state, I’ll not begrudge any Democrat who engages in a little cross-party voting, as long as they follow the law.

    If the republicans don’t understand their voting base they are doing it to themselves. It’s not demacrat vs republican anymore. Its statist vs libertarian. And by libertarian i mean what liberalism used to be before the CPUSA took over it. It’s more like demacrat vs demacrat light as far as the party lines. Communist vs fascist.

    Originally we didn’t even need term limits because Congressmen only were paid a moderate hourly wage and only for the hours they actually sat in session. It was far too little to provide a complete living for them and they were expected to have their own careers while they sat in session. We only have the problems we have now thanks to Andrew Jackson changing the system and creating a salaried system. It used to be that we had no career politicians because it really just wasn’t worth it. Public servants back then really were public SERVANTS.

    If you think this was bad wait until Cochran runs against a democrat and see what the democrat uses to sway the ignorant fools against him.
    Republican’s (generally) are the worst strategists I’ve ever seen, and I’ve watched them screw up a sure thing over and over, especially the 2012 Presidential election, so much ammo, to nicey nice to use it. Look how sickening McCain was during the 2008 Pres. election not wanting to offend Obama, no wonder he lost, and he was more than happy to make it look like it was Palin’s fault.

    Cochran betrayed all Mississippi Republicans by selling out to the likes of Michael Bloomberg ($250,000) and his anti-gun advocacy and selling out to Black Democrats.

    Matt Boyle reports that McDaniel has vowed to investigate the

But seeing as how Thud Cockran is older than dirt, I’m guessing he won’t be around long enough to exorcise. If we don’t rid ourselves of the OLD, entrenched, establishment, DEPENDS wearing old farts…our entire way of life and country ARE doomed!
    The father of our country ( George Washington for you recent public school grads ) was right again.

    WHY COCHRAN’S PAY-FOR-EACH-VOTE VICTORY STINKS ON ICE

    Our friend Matthew Boyle of Breitbart reports that, “There
    were 24,889 votes cast in Hinds County in the runoff—17,927 were for Cochran and 6,962 were for McDaniel—but only 20,567 Republican voters are listed in Hinds County, according to the well-known Labels and Lists Voter Data Base. The extraordinarily high turnout in Hinds County is much more than what happened in Hinds County in the primary just a few weeks ago, when 16,640 total votes were cast—10,928 for Cochran and 5,621 for McDaniel.”

    Hinds County, is a predominantly Democratic area of inner-city
    Jackson where a key Cochran ally already accused of engaging in
    suspicious activity on Cochran’s behalf. “I’ve never seen a Republican
    primary with that many voters in it in Hinds County,” said Democratic
    State Chairman Rickey Cole in an interview with Boyle.

    Then Glenn was wrong. Any Democrat who voted in the Dem primary is not allowed to vote in the Repub primary. Dems who didn’t vote in their own primary CAN vote in the Repub primary. But the electioneers didn’t CHECK. I’m sure McDaniels people will be checking now.

  • Calohan

    You bet. Coulter: “Mitch McConnell is the best minority leader I have seen in my lifetime”.
    Coulter is vigorously opposed to Amnesty? Well her buddy Mooch McConnell, who actively supports socialist Thad is hell bent upon passing Amnesty and he will have plenty of help from Thad.

    Talk about being disoriented.

    Down with Cochran! Down with McConnell!

  • docgearhart

    McDaniel lost because he didn’t explain his supposedly poor attendance and poor voting record while in the Mississippi State Legislature. Also, he spammed and robo-called the living hell out of everyone I know. I got between 5 and 10 robo-calls every single day and it drove me to the point of insanity.

    Abdolutely. The leaches who are latched onto the treasury would have to know the candidates. They will never do that. Without the Ds and Rs to guide them, they would never know who to vote for. Their votes would be random and of no consequence to an election’s outcome. We would hear them cry, “disenfranchisement.”

    THE ULTIMATE SOLUTION

    Tea party leader: Chris McDaniel should run as write-in
    candidate in November election

    By Seth McLaughlin
    The Washington Times
    Wednesday, June 25, 2014

    The head of tea party group said Wednesday that state Sen.
    Chris McDaniel should wage a write-in campaign in the November election after
    losing to Sen. Thad Cochran in a nasty Mississippi primary race.

    Judson Phillips, the vocal leader of Tea Party Nation, an
    online group that backed Mr. McDaniel in the race, said that Mr. Cochran and
    his allies made it abundantly clear in the contest that the “RINO wing” of the
    Republican party will do whatever it can to stay in power — in this case by
    reaching out to Democrats.

    “When the Republican Establishment acts like Democrats, what
    is the point of supporting them?” Mr. Phillips said in an early morning email
    blast. “The answer is, we don’t have to.

    “Every McDaniel supporter in Mississippi from DeSoto County
    in the North to Biloxi in the South should stand up today and tell Chris
    McDaniel that if he runs as a write-in candidate in November, they will support
    him,” he said.

    As it stands, Mr. McDaniel refused to concede the race,
    saying he wants to make sure the “sanctity” of the vote is upheld and that the
    race was decided by Republican voters.

    But Mr. Phillips said those sorts of legal challenges rarely
    pan out and said Mr. McDaniel would have a better shot of taking out Mr.
    Cochran in the general election.

    “The Republican Establishment thinks they have fought back
    an insurrection from conservatives and now we will meekly fall in line in
    November and support a RINO who needs Democrats to win? Never,” said Mr.
    Phillips, who also writes a column in The Washington Times. “If Chris McDaniel
    loses his challenges to this election, then he needs to be a write-in candidate
    this fall.”

  • docgearhart

    Cochran ran ads saying that McDaniel had the worst attendance record and missed more votes than anyone in the state legislature. I contacted the McDaniel campaign office several times to get their side of the story and they never responded. I lean toward the Tea Party ideals. I wish all the incumbents were ousted, but I’m not going to vote for someone who can’t be relied on to show up for work. Therefore, myself and many people I know didn’t vote. Also, next time, I suggest all the candidates perfect their robo-calling systems. I don’t need to be called 50 times with the same message. Once they reach someone, take their number out of the system.

    I thought it was a runoff to chose the Republican to run against a Democrat in Nov. If that’s true how do Democrats gets yo vote in this election? I’m a registered Rep and they sure dont let me vote in a Dem runoff??? So what the heck did I miss in this race. Was voter fraud the hanging chads in this election? Whatever, it appears Thad won for 40 damn yrs now >> so our goals must be to get TERM LIMITS on the ballot the very next damn election cycle. Of course Congress will never pass such bill so We the People must collect needed signatures in every state to get term limits on the ballot. This will surely get all the nursing home prospects .. out of Congress, and into the nursing home where they belong.

  • Calohan

    Think so?

    http://www.redstate.com/2014/06/13/democrats-give-brat-winning-edge-cantor/

    “While Republican primary turnout spiked by 28 percent over
    2012, according to the State Board of Elections, Cantor received nearly 8,500
    fewer votes this year than he did in the 2012 Republican primary, a drop that
    was larger than Brat’s 7,200-vote margin of victory. Regardless of how many
    Democrats turned out to oppose Cantor, he still would have prevailed had he
    maintained the same level of support as in his 2012 landslide.”

    Robo-calls are extremely irritating. I get them all the time from RINOS and Rove. On the otherhand I would take the word of Vladimir Putin before I would take the word of Thad Cochran or anybody linked to him. They lied through their teeth this time around just like the Dems. And for that, let me assure you Cochran will never survive the upcoming general. The grass roots will can him.

    man glen just when i think you can get no worse you prove me wrong, again. THERE IS NO REAL VOTE IN THIS COUNTRY! there has no been for a few years now. how do i know? look at the 30 year people in office, look at the current pres. WE DID NOT VOTE THESE GUYS IN, they were hired!!!
    do you own poll, wake up and prove it to yourself already and stop making yourself look foolish…

  • Calohan

    Cochran supporters worked to turn out Democratic voters, placing an ad in a Jackson-based newspaper with a largely African-American readership. (That strategy is limited in the next three weeks because Mississippi election law forbids anybody who voted in Tuesday’s Democratic primary from voting in the runoff election of the opposite party.)

  • Mike Nelson

    You cannot possibly have missed the significant difference between those who are being paid by the gov’t to live, juxtaposed with those who are paying the taxes that the gov’t sends to those on gov’t assistance.

    I’ve read your other comments as well, and I don’t see how you can assert that one who fails to pay into the system should have a say in how the assets of the system are used, when their clear priority is one of self interest.

    People with business interests typically are tax payers, and when they are not, they are typically able to avoid taxes through proper use of the system itself. I know people call these loopholes, but the only thing rules consistently do is create loopholes – that’s why they change from admin to admin, and when control of the governing bodies shift. I accept that some taxes are necessary, but how can it be fair/right/responsible for someone who is paying to have the same voice as someone who is only taking?

    It’s not that it’s a cold-hearted or vengeful feeling, or an attempt to disenfranchise anyone, it’s that the current system by which the growing poverty class disenfranchises the contributors is in chemotherapy, and it’s failing. It’s that any other practice is suicidal.

    It seems that you put no credence to the fact that a taxpayer putting in $10M can still buy only 1 vote with their entire $10M… which is the same vote that each recipient of $20k of that $10M has. How is this fair in your perception?

    At what point does pure democracy (i.e., weight of numbers) become immoral? If 500 dudes want to rape a woman, is that the same thing? Because that’s what the math works out as: $10M / $20k = 500.

    Should you choose to respond, please, don’t cite faults in my math based on actual payments – address the root of the issue: some people pay a heck of a lot for their 1 vote… while others take the money they pay, and still have the same 1 vote.

  • Calohan

    With the voter ID laws in place in MS that should be more than easy to investigate and check out. And it will be.

  • Mr. Black

    Where is the evidence? Using all caps using making your case, it just makes you look “special”.

  • Calohan

    At that point Thad has been had.

  • Mr. Black

    Well, that’s not true, because in MS, you don’t register for a party. They don’t know who’s Republican and who’s Democrat, which is the reason for the open primary.

    The law says you may not vote in the runoff of a different party for whom you voted in the primary. So, if you didn’t vote in the primary, you can vote in the Republican runoff no matter which party you affiliate yourself with, as long as you also vote for that party in November.

    Their investigation will prove only that McDaniel is a sore loser. We have more reason to suspect McDaniel of impropriety than we do Cochran. It wasn’t Cochran’s people who were caught locked up in the courthouse the night of the primary with all those ballots.

  • Mr. Black

    Those are the words of any politician. I live in Mississippi, keep up with current events, and I haven’t heard of “literally dozens of irregularities.” His people may be telling him that, but there’s been no formal charges of misconduct aligned against Cochran. Keep dreaming.

  • Tony

    It is doubtful wheather or not Thad Cochran wil serve out another term. If he steps down before his term is up it will give the governor an oppertunity to appoint another establishment politician until an ellection can be held. That would give the appointee incumbent status almost gurranteeing the seat since incumbents don’t loose in Ms

  • Sharon Bingham

    You make it sound like Cochran barely qualified for the runoff. The initial primary was close. Open primaries are the law in Mississippi. It is not unusual to have more votes in a runoff than in the original primary (check me on that). The increase in voter turnout did not all go for Cochran or you would have seen a landslide.

  • Calohan

    Mr. Black from the left. Take a flying leap at a rolling donut. I have
    had about enough of your lies. Mississippi election law forbids anybody
    who voted in Tuesday’s Democratic primary from voting in the runoff
    election of the opposite party.

    It will be easy to show that Thad
    Cochran instigated the breaking of that law. In addition, I don’t know
    of a true Conservative in that entire state who will vote for your
    senile fossil Cochran-Roach in the general.

    Therefore at the end
    of the day, Cochran loses…. whether by McDaniel write-in,
    conservatives sitting this one out or having every right to vote for
    Cochran’s opponent. Put that in your dreams and smoke
    it……………..loser.

    Actually, I’m a Bible believing Christian who knows the Bible says to take care of those in need and to defend the poor (yes, I actually read my Bible). I am also a Conservative. I am an Independent voter, and see where both parties have failed this country immensely. But I also research things…yes, I have researched Fascism, Socialism, and Communism…you know the saying, “know your enemies”. What we are seeing today is an infiltration of the Progressive movement in both parties. To deny there is any fault in either party is blinding oneself to the truth. I hear so often those in business stating those who need assistance shouldn’t be helped, but when business is failing they want bailouts…hate to tell you this, but that is assistance on a larger scale, not conforming to free-market, nor is it in any way helpful to an economy where competition is meant to keep prices lower. You want to see an economy turn around? You create meaningful jobs so people can get back to work…not just complain because people aren’t working. Even when businesses were given the tax breaks and incentives to create jobs, they were shipping them overseas and across the border. By doing so, they also were defaulting on paying taxes in this country, but were also gutting the very economic base of this country. We also failed to keep the kind of jobs that would allow this country, if need be, to subsist on it’s own resources…manufacturing, agricultural, etc. Instead we went to a service base, and then information based economy…well, when times get hard that won’t feed, clothe, or provide what is needed to subsist as a healthy economy, and we are seeing the foolishness of those type business movements in our time.

  • Keith Daugherty

    seriously, how soon you seemed to forget the insurance company bailouts, the automobile industry bailouts, and the banking bailouts…I suppose no business entities voted themselves those payments?

You just go vote however you want depending on how you feel that year. We just got a law in that you have to show ID to vote. Before I could go in and say I am Susie Q and they would say “OK here you go”. People were told that McDaniel was going to get rid of food stamps so that is why a lot of demarcates decided to go vote.
    This state is almost sickening. No one has work ethic. Tons have jobs or places ARE hiring but everyone is to lazy to go do something about it. They would rather get stamps and a free phone. When I moved here I found a job in 3 days and started. I am from Florida coast and its seasonal down there and I actually had a job only 4 months out of the year.

    Well I hate to tell you this, but It wasn’t big business that killed Michigan, it was the unions (the socalled average people), they had good jobs in the auto plants but they kept demanding more and more money and benefits, they were getting more than those that went to college. So, yes, the auto industry sent their plants overseas, they could no longer compete with other countries, GMs cars cost too much. People go into business to make money and if they don’t make it, they go out of business, I have seen first hand what happens when you have union protection, people work as little as possible, look what has happened to our education system, you can’t fire bad teachers. You blame big business, you should run a business and see what the owners go through, people are spoiled today, they don’t want to work hard and want a lot for what they do. It is easy just to blame big business, but they are the ones taking the chances, it is hard today with all the gov. regulations.

    I feel the same about your comparison of payers vs non-payers, interests notwithstanding (lack of credibility). We, as a sovereign nation, could make it based on businesses and business interests, and we could do it without the vote of the welfare population and unemployed; however, it’s becoming evident that we can’t make it the other way around.

    I acknowledge your point that biz has a self interest, but that interest is in their prosperity and survival, just like you and me. Do you acknowledge that a vote that costs millions of dollars has equal weight in an election, as the one that is given for free? Do you acknowledge that paying people to vote based on promises of higher benefits from one party, who are seeking the ever growing voice of the destitute, to the detriment of the People, is immoral? The history of populist movements is one of despotic failure, because any time something is “free” it has to come from somewhere, be taken from someone, or cause someone else to go without.

    If numbers matter, why don’t they matter all the time?

    We are told constantly that we “rape” the land taken from indigenous people (false, imo; war is war, and back then people fought like it mattered, and WON or LOST big). The illegals have come here to take from the gov’t for free, and against the will of We, the People, because they’ve seen that others are already doing it, and then get to vote, as well. It’s a rape of America’s middle- and poverty-classes facilitated from the administration on down.

    I’m good with the comparison to rape, the result of which is an unwanted, humiliating, and violent intrusion forced upon us at great detriment to ourselves… and this one results in literally tens of thousands of unwanted offspring annually, because people are being paid well enough to keep having them, rather than find a way to contribute to their own welfare.

    We’ve already been slipped the “roofie colada” and half of us either don’t care/aren’t objecting anymore.

    Those who are Democrats and voted in the Republican primary should have to vote Republican in the regular election.
    The party issue only decides what primary you vote in. Any general election, a democrat could vote republican or vice versa.

    Do you mean to say that in the general election (i.e. the democratic vs the republican candidate) you must for a democrat if your registered as such?

    Sick to see some people have been mass brainwashed over the years, keep drinking the same old tired kool-aid which keeps them in the same old predicament along with those that follow with no hope in sight. Can it be that easy, to continue in the same path, to be blissfully and ignorantly pliant? Or is the fear of the shock that would follow once they realize what they will see, once the fuzzy curtain, someone else is holding in front of them is lifted?

    It was indeed a brilliant strategy and Conservatives are either going to learn the lesson or see it repeated as the divide weighing down the right grows ever-more wide. It is INSANE that Conservatism has allowed itself to become the Bogeyman used to frighten those who fundamentally share the same types of values. People aren’t won over by insulting them – they’re won over by showing them how voting Right is in their best interest – which means it must be DEMONSTRABLE for people to see. What has the Right been able to demonstrate to the Center and Center Left that would inspire hundreds of thousands – even millions – of people to move to the right with trust and confidence? Problem is that the Right is so busy attacking and creating enemies out of thin air that there’s no time to change hearts and minds. Hearts and minds – that’s where the revolution has to be fought. Newt used to be really good at communicating the ‘why’s, but that art has become lost among Republicans, neglected among Libertarians, and thoroughly unfathomable to the Tea Party.

    “Amazing thing: Not only has it been healed, it’s been healed in the
    last few weeks because none of these people decided to vote for Thad
    Cochran initially,” Stu added. “They just all decided in the last few
    weeks how important he was for the state of Mississippi, [and] they had
    to turn out yesterday.”

    uh ..no … this is a cover story for what I believe is the huge VOTER FRAUD perpetrated in Hinds County, MS

    May the TRUTH that SETS FREE be revealed

    Wonder how many mirrors your ugly face has cracked, Commie? Compared to you, your pudgy soul-mates Carl Rove and turkey-neck Mitch McConnell are Adonises.

    So why don’t you just creep back into that crack in the wall you call home at Media Matters with the other of liberal parasites that have a new found love for Thad Cochran.

    He can’t

    Love your use of capitalization!

  • Caribou “PAYCUT” Barbie™

    You are so indoctrinated by simple minded propaganda that I almost feel sorry for you.
    I don’t blame you. I blame to propaganda artists that take advantage of your simple mind

  • amy clark

    I am a mississippian and just SICK with this election. What I want to know is why Thad Cochran turned around on his retirement and pushed so hard for the position. WHY? Why was it so important?

  • Michael in McAllen

    OK you Troll. You got to use the freedom of speech that we are fighting for you to keep, now be gone with your asinine comments!

  • Calohan

    Says who?

  • Mr. Black

    LMAO! Are you still here? Man, I must have really gotten under your skin.

    “So why don’t you just creep back into that crack in the wall”

    Why don’t you make me? :)

    Here’s the scoop on Mississippi law on elections:

    So, can McDaniel make a run for the Senate seat in November as a third-party candidate or through a write-in campaign?

    Nope, and here’s why.

    McDaniel could run as an independent by collecting the requisite number of signatures and filing with the Secretary of State’s office. However, the deadline was January 31, 2014. Period.

    The only way someone gets on the ballot after that deadline is to replace someone who has died or is somehow deemed ineligible to run.

    Write-in votes are limited:

    While you can write-in votes in Mississippi, they don’t really count. The only instance in which they would count is if someone on the ballot died.

    So mounting a write-in campaign is a non-starter in Mississippi.

    The Washington Times is um, not that good.

  • Calohan

    Simple mind, Caribou woman?

    Exodus simply said “I believe is the huge VOTER FRAUD perpetrated in Hinds County, MS.”

    So do I. What of it, “PAYCUT”?

  • Caribou “PAYCUT” Barbie™

    I wish you luck.
    Elections are RARELY reversed. In fact, can you name one?

  • Calohan

    what’s with the :), Dem?

  • Calohan

    The Washington Times is just fine from where I sit lady.

    Then we will go with Litigation and I encourage all of my grass roots colleagues to vote for the opponent of Thad Cochran in the general. And if you think Cochran has a chance in the general election, you got rocks in your head.

  • Caribou “PAYCUT” Barbie™

    Excellent.

  • Calohan

    Don’t look now “Barbie”, but your Thad Cochran is about to lose his next election. We will see to that.

  • Calohan

    OK Barbie. Looks like we are on the same page.

    The goal here is to change Cochran’s primary cheers to his “general” tears…………fight fire with fire……….no matter what it takes.

  • Mr. Black

    I am trying to speak to you in the language of your people. You see, I can tell you are a closeted homosexual. Anyone with that much anger is lying to themselves about something, and being gay is a pretty safe bet. I thought it would put you more at ease.

    It’s OK to come out, bro.

  • Calohan

    Now why would a gay liberal activist like yourself, on a conservative site, want to call a man who has been through more woman in a week than you have in your entire lifetime?

    Don’t ask, don’t tell, Obama parasite?

  • Calohan

    BTW. Nice picture. Problem is, I only see men in it.

  • Ken Overstreet

    If the RepliCRUD RINOs want to keep tampering with the Republican primaries; The Disenfranchised TeaParty Republicans will come back to haunt them in the General Election with write in votes. First we will witness a massive election challenge with the 100s of irregularities and then an unpresedented residency challenge; the the Write In Campaign. Long Story Short … PayBacks will be HELL !!!

  • Lisa

    I agree with Dr. Carson and you. If that can’t be done then the primaries should only be open to those who are registered in that particular party and that should be the same for EVERY state and territory.

    I’m going to tell you why the votes came in from Jackson MS.. I just got off the Phone with Greg a long time friend of mines, and he belongs to the General Mississippi Baptist Church..

    He said that McDaniel’s was seen as a clear threat to the Presidency of Obama.. I then asked him how did you find out they needed your vote? He said it was all over the phones from calls from a message and that several people met with the leadership…

    The mere mention of certain people names also pulling for McDaniel’s was enough to get a lot to go along. ie Rush Limbaugh ect, ect, ect,… My conclusion was this after the conversation. They played the old Tribalism Card and most people dont know how powerful it is with people over 55… To them its the Devil they Know Vs The Devil they don’t know.

    Basically I don’t even think Thad came up with the idea; I would bet money it was Mitch McConnell who came up with it and funneled some of those billions in Kick Back he just got….

  • Anonymous

    Wow we need not be discouraged because of this rino…I’m still going to vote and do my responsibility for my children and grandchildren…I am disappointed in the other so called republicans that supported this leach…all Thad cockran wanted was to be reelected…so he would say anything…to bad for Mississippi !!! you were controlled and manipulated !!! wake up people!!! brett farve should be ashamed along with rino McCain…Thune is a real disappointment:( Its to bad that Sarah Palin was associated with McCain running for VP… I’m so disappointed in them:(…but the people shall speak:)

  • DILLIGAF

    Keith, you totally missed the point. I personally believe those that can legally vote MUST meet the following criteria: Pay into the government more than they receive, be of the age of 25 or greater and own their home or be current on their home-ownership payments. You are right, business owners have a stake in who gets elected and how they conduct business, but at the same time so do the average American home owner. As for the age of 25….. there are literally 100′s of thousands of kids out there, ages 18 – 24 who have never worked a day in their lives and don’t know crap about the country they live in much less ever had to actually think for themselves. There are many above the age of the age of 25 also who fit into that category but the curve starts at 25, not 18. To own land and pay taxes is owning a piece of this country regardless of what business you are in or how you make your money. These are the people who have vested interest in America and these are the ones who should be deciding her fate.

  • greg

    I have the solution for this problem.

    Republican voters in Mississippi should vote in Thad Cochran, and then immediately start filling out petitions to have him recalled.

    That would send a statement
