Primarily Liberally Fun Tuesday: Mississippi Tea Party #fail#fail#fail

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

Chris McDaniel, it couldn't have happened to a lousier Tea Party guy. It is time to surrender.

You Lost, Dude.

The reaction from Mississippi was priceless. Even liberals were celebrating Old School GOP Dinosaur Thad Cochran's win. "Hallelujah" as the subject header. "Talk about close - Cochran 50.8%, McDaniel 49.2%," first paragraph of the email that flew in shortly after the AP called the nail-biter of a Senate primary, at 11:21 p.m. VT time.  [From our very own lwdgrfx.] Maddow was no disappointment either.

The words 'defied conventional wisdom' are happening again about the un-compassionate conservative Tea Party asshattery.  Happy Dance.  Let that door hit you in the posterior as you scamper back to your home under a bridge, McDaniel.

It was a night perhaps even more satisfying than Eric Cantor's epic topple of (was it an entire two weeks ago that Laffy beat the New York Times to the punch in reporting that headline?!) last Tuesday, because this time the Tea Party Idjit went Down.

Image 88

Rather than Ann Coulter and (gag with me) Laura Ingraham doing Lipton Brigadier Vicious Victory Laps, this week we can visualize Teabaggers enjoying the possible reactions of:  confusion; anxiety; xenophobic tremors; nausea associated with the thought of African Americans holding public office; overt thirst for cheap domestic beer;  inability to sleep without Fvx Noise on at all times; an unsafe drop in White Supremacist hopes; unusual intolerance of  contraception or Women's Rights; and an urge to grab a long gun and see what's on sale at Target. Esquire had their Redneck Number.

For a wrap-up that offers just the right amount of Scarborough Crow, enjoy the opening block of Morning Mika and Schmoe's reaction.  Joe sported a fleece to be pithy in. "Cochran Wins" … it was a hum-dinger!

40,000 or so more voters went to the polls in a run-off in Mississippi than crawled out for the actual primary. That's cool, I don't care where you live - Democrats, we need to meet and beat those numbers!!

McDaniel neglected to concede in his speech … holding an imaginary door open? Morning Mika and punditry of the hour?

It's bloody great news for American politics that voters showed up in droves to ditch the Tea Party, which may seem a Phyrric victory, but it means less Ted Cruz in our ears  …  and there was another deep loss for the Teabaggers in the great state of Oklahoma, where the hopes of Palin and Cruz-endorsed Sooner T.W. Shannon were dashed to the plains.

For some fine background on McDaniel's Fail, follow this link that Lucian posted earlier this month, A Mississippi Tea Party Chat, from the Jackson Free Press.

The distilled message, as always: VOTE!! Campaigns matter but not without VOTES. Until we can do it on Facebook or the Twitterz, make the effort.

We have one per citizen, and it is our only real voice. So GOTV, Rock the Vote, Vote #VOTE Vote.
