Conservative Thad Cochran is a Kenyan Usurper

Filed in National by on July 10, 2014

If you are a political party that runs on bile and deranged toxicity, attracting voters isn’t easy. It is an uphill slog. As we know when the GOP’s angry hate-filled rants couldn’t attract enough voters to beat President Obama, the hate didn’t go away after the election. It grew. It turned from trying to beat the President at the ballot box to trying to beat him by mounting a prolonged campaign of delegitimization.

I’d say that the campaign has had some mixed success, and the GOP base must agree – because delegitimization and jury nullification appears to be the GOP playbook now.

Thad Cochran (first elected to the Senate in 1978, the third most-senior Senator and the second most-senior Republican Senator) is the current target of a GOP jury nullification campaign. But why? Cochran is a partisan conservative.

The teaparty has won the war. From a policy perspective, the GOP is the teaparty now. But because the malice dial in the brains of conservatives only turns in one direction, the revolution must continue. Like the terror following the French Revolution, there are always people with questionable sympathies to root out. They can’t stop themselves. And now, it appears to be only a matter of time until Ted Cruz himself is accused of illegitimacy.

Chris McDaniel’s plans to legally challenge the results of the Republican Senate run-off in Mississippi have a supporter in Washington: Sen. Ted Cruz.

“Chris McDaniel won a sizable majority of the votes from Republicans who voted in the run-off,” Cruz said in a Monday interview with conservative radio host Mark Levin. “The DC machine spent hundreds of thousands of dollars urging some 30,000-40,000 partisan Democrats to vote in the run-off which changed the outcome.”

    This is so easily fixed…

    Cut the TEA Party loose… The Tea Party only matters because they control the Republicans…

    If today, Boehner brought all the suppressed votes on the floor, Unemployment comes to mind, Immigration comes to mind, they get passed… The Tea Party revolts, and Republicans become the good people, and the Tea Party is bad…

    It is scary to cut the Tea Party off which is why they haven’t done so yet. But moderate Republicans today are like an abused wife… Sometimes taking action against an abuser IS the best policy… But to do so, you have to split officially.

    If the Tea Party were cut loose, they would be the Conservatives…. minority. There would be a battle for the middle, Democrat or Republican, and the Progressives would either take over the Democratic Party thereby giving new life to the Republican, OR… The Republican Party withers as its moderates stay Democratic, and the Progressives split off…

    If it weren’t for the Tea Party, this nation would be more Republican. The Tea Party in its extremism is chasing conservative women, conservative Hispanics, and even conservative young people, all who would normally be Republicans, into voting Democratic…. They are the gift that keeps on giving…

    The nation is not Conservative… Don’t take my word for it… Just ask Romney and the Republican Senators in swing states…

    kavips, that sounds reasonable, except the Tea Party is the Republican Party.

    Though the idea makes sense, it doesn’t make dollars, as the same people who fund the teabaggers fund the Republican Party. The two cannot be separated.

    In addition, Nixon’s odious southern strategy has come full circle–the bigots and racists that Nixon thought he could use are now the base. The hate is no longer just a tactic; it is the essence. If Mitt Romney and Thad Cochran are what pass for “moderate,” there are no moderates left in the Republican Party. The split is merely between persons who know how to behave in public and persons who don’t.

    Thanks, Jason.

    I’m a Southern boy. I know bigots when I see them.

    I once had a history professor who was fond of pointing out that history is full of ironies. Here’s one: The “party that freed the slaves” is now the party of the Secesh.
