It was truly a race between stereotypes. The Mississippi Senate race between an admitted animal abuser who “did all kinds of indecent things with animals” as a kid and a confederate apologist who wants to purge the GOP of anyone who calls others racists truly got heated–and you know what, it was all the blacks’ fault according to one of the contenders in this cesspool of dixieland dumbf*ckery.
Senator Thad Cochran won the runoff by 7,667 votes–over half of which came from predominantly African American–or “Democratic”–precincts. Chris McDaniel, however, has a few issues with these black *ahem* Democrats who participated in the democratic process.
In fact, McDaniel claims he really won by 25,000 votes–damn the actual figures! “Chris McDaniel clearly, clearly won the Republican vote in the runoff,” McDaniel attorney Mitch Tyner said at a Monday press conference. “I say that very assuredly because that’s what the mathematics show. It’s not what I’m arguing. After the election, we did some post-election polling. We determined that of the Democrats that did cross over, 71 percent of them admitted they will not support the Republican in the general election. When you take those polling numbers and you go in and do the mathematical regressions, you can see that Chris McDaniel clearly won the runoff by 25,000 votes.”
McDaniel is serious enough about his claim that it’s all
black people’s Democrats’ fault that he has launched a legal challenge to the election results. McDaniel will call upon the court to recognize him as the true victor in this epic showdown between possible animal f*cker and total not-racist.
“The short answer is we’re not asking for a new election,” Tyner continued. “We’re simply asking that the Republican Party recognize the person who won the runoff election.”
Cochran responded that McDaniel has “made repeated and baseless allegations of fraud and misconduct” since the election. “We look forward to holding the McDaniel campaign to the burden of proof that the law requires – and, we are dedicated to the defense of the votes of those Mississippians who voted on June 24 for Thad Cochran as their United States Senator, an election which has been as thoroughly reviewed and examined as any in modern Mississippi history,” said Cochran attorney Mark Garriga.
“We know that the conservative movement is passionate about this issue,” McDaniel said. “We know right now that the conservative movement is very angry about what’s occurred. We all witnessed what a segment of our party did leading up to the 24th. We saw despicable acts of race-baiting. We saw despicable allegations from those who are supposed to be leaders in our party. There is no place in the Republican Party for those that would race bait. There is no place in the Republican Party for racism of any kind, and that’s exactly what we saw on those evenings and mornings leading up to the 24th. That has to end. We watched it. We witnessed it. We saw the dirty money coming in from D.C., whether it was from Bloomberg or other Republican United States senators. We saw what they did here in Mississippi.”
“They asked us to put up or shut up. Here we are. Here we are with the evidence,” McDaniel said.
Even if his euphemism for black people, “Democrats,” did swing the victory for Thad Cochran, Mississippi state law does not prohibit Democrats from voting in Republican primaries. This should be entertaining…
