  •  "welfare state"=very loud dog whistle (6+ / 0-)

    Even if you agree with those quotes from Cruz, none of it proves any illegality or wrongdoing by Cochran.

    To all dumbshit racist white Mississippi conservatives:
    Your state doesn't have party registration or closed primaries, deal with it!  Maybe, just maybe, all black people in your state aren't a bunch of liberal deadbeats like you claim, and maybe they're willing to support a white Republican who doesn't believe in treating them like shit 100% of the time, and who provides them with some help and benefits if only in an indirect way.  

    •  To paraphrase Menken, today's republicans (7+ / 0-)

      are motivated by the suspicion that somewhere, some black guy is getting away with something.  

      maybe they're willing to support a white Republican who doesn't believe in treating them like shit 100% of the time
      You know the first step in getting someone's vote?  Ask for it.  Don't treat it like a disease you'd only wish on your opponent.

      It couldn't possibly have been our ideas/behavior that led to defeat.
      Never mind that existing laws allowed for crossover votes.
      It must have been fraud, because everything's fraudulent unless we win.
