The polls have been closed for less than an hour in Mississippi, and early returns are starting to come in. Both candidates have made their last minute pitches to the voting public, and there is nothing left to do but count the votes.
The story on the radio today spoke of higher than normal turnout, and higher turnouts in normally Democratic areas of the state. No doubt, the result of Boss Haley Barbour’s GOTV effort in the Black churches. Win or lose, the tactics of the establishment Republicans, including both the current and former Governor, have left a lasting and bitter taste with conservative Mississippians. Perhaps the most repugnant tactic used by the Barbour Gang was the Anti-Tea Party Robo-call, urging Democrats to vote in the Republican Primary to re-elect Cochran and stop the RACIST Tea Party.
Sumbich. It’s bad enough to hear that kind of rhetorical arson from the Leftists, but when our own Party uses it against us? I don’t know about anyone else, but if Cochran wins because of those Democrat votes, THIS Racist Tea-Party Bastid will follow the time honored practice by taking a fishing trip the first week of November.
And you, Thad Cochran, will have no one to blame but yourself.
We will be posting updates throuout the night as the results come in. Meanwhile, grab some popcorn, and feel free to join in the discussion. Admission is free. BYOB.
