With the Teabaggers in Mississippi foaming at the mouth slightly more than usual after Thad Cochran won the run-off with Democratic help, trying anything their lawyers can bill for to overturn the outcome, it is incumbent on us to help our more
insane brethren out.

Mississippi Republicans reliably cast about 55% of all votes in Misssissippi; evenly split between Cochran and McDaniel would yield about 28% each, where Democrats can fairly easily muster 40%.

Most Kossacks don't live in or near Mississippi, but that doesn't mean they can't play...

Due to its shape and location a LOT of folks will cross some part of Mississippi between now and November. I'm inviting them all to exercise their creativity and create one or more "WRITE IN CHRIS!" campaign signs to post when they pass through (or give to somebody else going that way). Sparkly, shiny, plain, it doesn't matter. If your exclamation point looks a bit like a "T"...

Be mindful of where you post your signs, don't want to block views of traffic; I'd just look for other campaign signs and join in.

If we try we can help Mississippi Teabaggers win a moral victory by getting more votes than Thad Cochran in November; it's merely incidental that the Senate seat would be won by a Democrat.

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.
