Correct, will_ethan. That's why I prefer to call them pro-birth. It fits most conservatives better than pro-life. They want women to have children, but they don't give a damn about them after.

Hillary's Empathy Problem

I personally do not believe that most politicians understand what the middle class experiences. How could they? For most, they are far removed from poverty or middle class existence even if they were there previously in life. I don't understand rich people problems either. Or third world problems. I understand middle class, single parent balancing a full time job and motherhood problems. It's impossible to fully understand what you haven't experienced. That doesn't mean that some politicians do not care about what others experience. However, for most, it's a game. It's not even a job. It's a game. It's about bringing in the most money that you can by saying what you have to say. It's about winning votes by saying what you have to say. And then each term is about voting the way that you have to vote to get re-elected or governing how your base wants you to.

Exactly. Ann Coulter knows her audience, and she plays them with every single column. She appears to be an idiot, but she is actually quite smart. Most of her columns really make me mad. But then I remind myself - she's just playing to her base, and they are going to keep making her rich.

Cochran didn't steal the election. He just ran a better campaign. He appealed to more voters - the ones that McDaniel didn't even attempt to reach.

YES. A Mississippi native. Too often the people writing and commenting aren't from Mississippi.

I can't believe that I am saying this - I actually agree with Ann Coulter.
You know him personally? Or just assuming that this is true?
Except there was no crime. There is no actual proof that anyone was paid for votes. Cochran won by appealing to ALL Mississippi voters. This is something that he has done before. And it's something that McDaniel didn't even attempt.
You do know that Ted Cruz won't be running against President Obama in 2016, right?
Voter fraud? But wait...the new voter ID laws went in to effect in Mississippi with this election. And the GOP has been shouting about how voter ID will stop voter fraud. McDaniel & the Tea Party are being sore losers. Cochran appealed to all voters of Mississippi instead of the narrow tea party voters that McDaniels did. And he won. There was nothing wrong or illegal about it. Everyone in Mississippi knows that a republican is going to win overall. So, why shouldn't democratic voters get to help decide which republican they will eventually have represent them?
