Poor little whiners couldn't quite steal it this time, but ya gotta give ém credit for trying like hell;;;

By nearly all accounts, they should have had their victory. Conventional wisdom had left Sen. Thad Cochran for dead after a close June 3 primary sent him into Tuesday’s runoff against former conservative radio host Chris McDaniel. The challenger was supposed to have an easy lift after winning more votes than Cochran in Round 1. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s surprise defeat by conservative upstart Dave Brat days later only reinforced that perception.

But Cochran, unbowed, expanded the electorate, bringing in Democratic voters and defeating McDaniel to almost certainly secure a seventh term in office. The results left establishment Republicans celebrating, having also beaten back Tea Party challengers in Oklahoma and upstate New York. As McDaniel refused to concede in a fiery speech decrying that “the conservative movement took a backseat to liberal Democrats in the state of Mississippi,” conservatives and Tea Party activists were left wondering where they went wrong—and seething at their defeat. The results show the success of a sweeping tide of establishment push-back following high profile upsets in Republican primaries in 2010 and 2012.

Yup...they're beside themselves with anger and stupidity. Is it wrong that Im smiling?

Some conservatives aren’t happy that their preferred candidate, state Sen. Chris McDaniel lost to Sen. Thad Cochran. Take Rush Limbaugh, who wondered if Cochran’s campaign slogan in Mississippi over the last few days was “Uncle Toms for Thad.”

Glenn Beck got so frustrated with Republicans over Mississippi state Sen. Chris McDaniel's (R) loss
 to incumbent Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS) in the primary runoff election for U.S. Senate that he got up in the middle of his radio program and walked outside to shoot a rifle.

Sarah Palin thinks there should be an investigation into whether there was any kind of illegal activity in the runoff election between Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS) and challenger state Sen. Chris McDaniel (R) in the race for U.S. Senate.

Well, you know, as for the primary, and perhaps if it’s true, some shenanigans going on there, nothing should surprise you, but that’s old-school politics where it’s a bit of the status quo and that’s got to go.

It’s very rare in a Republican primary that the candidate who promises to bring home the bacon, promising bigger government, which is requiring higher taxes and more burdensome government actually pulls it off in the primary? That’s a rare thing. 

So it’s — it will be surprising, and yet perhaps not, to find out what that cross-over of Democrat voters, how that does impact the general.  Well, if Republicans are going to act like Democrats, then what’s the use in getting all gung ho about getting Republicans in there?  So yeah, if Republicans aren’t going to stand strong on the planks in our platform, then it does no good to get all enthused about them anymore.

It proves you usually can't be a racist and ignore or denigrate sizable sections of your electorate, even in Mississippi...

she continuously talks in circles and yet says absolutely nothing. She's an ignorant dunce. Reminds me of a certain poster that we have on the board.
