Senate candidate Chris McDaniel; campaign image
Mississippi Republican Chris McDaniel, who is challenging Sen. Thad Cochran in the GOP primary because the Republican Party has lost its mind, continues to sound like a real piece of work. More tape has surfaced of his old radio talk show (yes, of course he had a radio talk show, every Republican who wants to run for anything has to have had a talk show) and yep, he's quite the ass.
– Discussing whether to pay the descendants of slaves, Mr. McDaniel said, “If they pass reparations, and my taxes are going up, I ain’t paying taxes.”

– On Mexico: “Why don’t we all immigrate south, let’s go to Mexico…You know, a dollar bill can buy a mansion in Mexico. And I think we all get together, go down there, build us a studio for like 26 pesos, uh and you know, put on a radio show right there in Mexico. Live the rest of our lives there.” [...]

– Mr. McDaniel then asked someone to translate, “Do you have a sister?” “What about mamacita?” he offered. “Mamacita works….I’m an English-speaking Anglo. I have no idea what it means, actually, but I’ve said it a few times, just for, you know, fun. And I think it basically means, ‘Hey, hot mama.’ Or, you know, ‘You’re a fine looking young thing.’”

Add this to an increasingly large pile of other incendiary statements.

McDaniel, for his part, is unconcerned about people paying attention to all the things he's said. No, really:

Interesting: McDaniel camp isn't disputing audio/context. Rather, it's disputing that an Akin-Mourdock situation can happen in MS

"It is metaphysically impossible for a Democrat to win in Mississippi," the McDaniel camp tells NBC News
@mmurraypolitics
So McDaniel thinks he can win regardless because, essentially, the good people of Mississippi would vote for a sandwich bag full of dog droppings so long as it had a Republican pin on it. It looks like we'll be testing that theory, too.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
