Cochran Campaign Stoops to a New Low

Thad Cochran is unfortunately a microcosm of the sorry state of the GOP establishment and career politicians in both parties.  In a perfect world, a 42-year incumbent facing a tough reelection campaign would have a list of endless accomplishments to advertise as his closing argument.  Sadly, Cochran’s campaign is out of ideas, out of excuses, and out of votes.  Their last ditch effort to buy another vacuous term in the Senate now completely revolves around turning out Democrat voters.

What’s worse is that the call targets black Democrat voters by directly calling the Tea Party racist:

In the automated message appearing to target black Democrat voters in Mississippi, the female voice on the line claims that tea party challenger Chris McDaniel would lead to more obstruction in Washington and create more “disrespectful treatment” to the nation’s first African-American president.

“The time has come to take a stand and say NO to the tea party,” the message says. “NO to their obstruction. NO to their disrespectful treatment of the first African-American president.”

The robocall goes on to urge listeners to go to the next polls Tuesday and vote against McDaniel. The only option in voting against McDaniel is to vote for incumbent Sen. Thad Cochran as they will be the only two names on the ballot.

“If we do nothing, tea party candidate Chris McDaniel wins and causes even more problems for President Obama,” the message continues. “With your help we can stop this. Please commit to voting against tea party candidate Chris McDaniel next Tuesday and say NO to the tea party!” [Daily Caller]

Folks, this is what we are up against.  It’s funny how the media and our opponents call us “purists” for referring to these people as “Republicans-in-name-only.”  Their behavior has shown that not only are they faux Republicans, they lack any sense of decency.
