The Republican Party primary election for the next US Senator from Mississippi (a contest between the incumbent Thad Cochran and his challenger Chris McDaniel) took a very strange turn this year.

From Wonkette:

Team McDaniel is pretty darn sure Cochran only won because he received more votes, which is usually how elections are decided unless those votes come from black people, in which case, it’s VERY suspicious and suggests that Democrats voter-frauded the election by voting.

And now, after all this time, Team McDaniel claims it has “evidence” to justify being a sore loser whiny crybaby, and it will see you in Elections Are For White People Court:

Neshoba County Fair William Winter

The Neshoba County Fair has been held each year since 1889 in Neshoba, Mississippi, northeast of Jackson, southeast of and close to Philadelphia, MS.

More on the fair here.

In addition to entertainment, a midway, a watermelon-eating contest, and horse and mule races, there are political speeches. I videotaped several this year, including the speech of William Winter, former governor of Mississippi.

Senator Cochran's opponent in the general election this November will be former Congressman Travis Childers. Here's a link to his speech which was given directly before Senator Cochran's: Travis Childers at the Neshoba CF.

Tea Party Determined to Champion McDaniel in Mississippi

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

oops he's doing it again
Persistence, stubbornness, the ability to out-wait and out-dumb all competition … these are the pachyderm compatible qualities that have made the Lipton Brigadiers so easily swallowed by the GOP.

In the race we have loved to watch in Mississippi, Thad Cochran was declared the victor in his hopeful clamber back to another six years in the Senate seat he has done little to distinguish … but ever-so-much of late to remark upon.

Juiceyness speaking. Refresh yourself on the race, the astonishing recall and all things McDaniel and Mississippi here, the Carnival has covered its eccentricities deeply and well.

As has The Rachel Maddow Show, no exception with Steve Kornacki filling in for Ms. Maddow this week. It has the trademark raised Maddow eyebrow of witty pithiness.

Hah! Tea Party Legend In His Own Mind McDaniel just won't give up the fight … even though it's been officially called. Even on Fvx Non News Network. By a cadre of blondes.

… and I still maintain that it's more than a shade possible Rachel was a Ghost Goddess at Laffy, Nicole and Amy's In-Person Gathering of Goddesses Sisterhood L.A. Session! Not to be missed. In fact I'd have a re-listen as well, if you want to indulge now, of Nicole's earlier show Live From Amy's House in Los Angeles … Radio Or Not, that was funny right there, and powerful. I can link you to the podcast here for ease.

Wasn't that The Best?!? From the sweet sounds of The Mamas and the Papas right on through to the amazing dynamics of Nicole Sandler and Amy Simon Live from Cali! That's not just my Air America withdrawal talking, either.

The discussion of hedge fund and Silicon Valley high dollar funding in education is not something you hear a lot about in liberal circles these days … tip of the hat to Nicole's segment with David Dayen - pre-goddesses - for going there.
