I really hope this doesn't lead to a flame-out that ultimately ends up giving the seat to a democrat.

This is my fear... However, since Ron Paul is supporting McDaniel, I'm going with Cochran..

McDaniel will win the general election in MS.  These are the kinds of seats that whatever it is calling themselves the "Tea Party" should go after in primaries.

 He will because of the wave.  But McDaniel's right on the edge of being another Christine O'Donnell.

That doesn't matter in Mississippi.  It's like running a far left kook in New York for Senate.  Short of literally imploding physically, it's a safe seat.

Running O'Donnell in Delaware was such a blunder, on the other hand.

According to all reports, Childers is a moderate dim, and he polls close to McDaniels. Cochran would be a shoo-in to win against Childers, but McDaniel has an awful lot of baggage for Childers to exploit. Mamacitas??? 

Nominating McDaniels is a pretty risky proposition, and this really isn't the best year to take a chance on losing what could have been a safe GOP seat.

McDaniels is going to easily win, just as Cochran will easily win if he wins the run-off.

Do you really think that all of the McDaniels radio shows, with his comments about libertarians, homosexuals, mamacitas, etc. won't have an effect? And even if he isn't connected to the business about taking pictures of Cochran's wife and the mystery of his supporters being in the courthouse building at night, his choices of friends and allies leaves something to be desired. There's an awful lot of material there. And the dims will use every bit of it, because they need every seat they can get, and this one is gettable.

McDaniels might still win, but it isn't going to be easy, and he will need an awful lot of money that could have been spent elsewhere.

Quote
Paul joins several other critics of the mainstream GOP and Washington backing McDaniel, including Sarah Palin, the Tea Party Express, Tea Party Patriots, FreedomWorks, former Sen. Rick Santorum, conservative leaders Gary Bauer and Phyllis Schlafly and media personalities Mark Levin, Laura Ingraham and Glenn Beck.

"This really is the beginning of the big tent here in Mississippi," said a McDaniel associate.

Wow!  That really is an inclusive tent.  Running the spectrum of conservative politics from far right to extreme right.  That's coalition building.

No matter the color of our skin, we all live under the same laws, we all salute the same great flag, and we are all made by the same almighty God.  We must love each other, show affection for each other, and unite together in condemnation of hatred, bigotry, and violence.  We must rediscover the bonds of love and loyalty that bring us together as Americans.

Racism is evil.  And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans

Libertarians are natural allies of conservatives. The sooner conservatives learn that, the better.

Conservatives are quite content to have the government support their issues with regulations and laws and taxes.

That's correct of True Libertarians but beware of those Faux Libertarians like the one in Virginia that ran for governor. He's actually a rat.

Is there such a thing as a Republican who has been in Washington too long?  Or does it matter, so long as he calls himself a Republican?

We criticize Democrats for their dinosaurs, but turn a blind eye to ours?  Cochran should not even be there.  It's time for the people of Mississippi to enforce term limits.

PS:  I thought the Tea Party was all about religious fanaticism.  Ron Paul is a religious fanatic now?

Well, it may be because all the Libertarians effectively do is drain away conservative votes in elections.
Again, take a look at the Virginia race for governor.

Naw...

It's about curing homos and bringing them back into the fold.

Just ask the Texas GOP.
