Take the censure and stripping of committee slots up with McConnell, who -- when the Reps capture the Senate -- will be majority leader. Unless, of course, the divisions exhibited here for the last several months produce the unlikely --- snatching defeat from the "jaws of victory."

From a strategic point of view, it was within the rules of the party/state. Why didn't the McDaniel team anticipate it? What kind of campaign team did he have? A campaign team is paid ... well paid ... to study the rules of the game and plan accordingly. Premature hubris? Many think it is abhorrent and unethical. Fine. But that is electoral politics ... from the time the Republic was established until today. If folks are looking for ethics and principle in electoral politics, look elsewhere. It is seldom found in the electoral arena. It is not confined to one party. Hell, there were stalwart Republicans .... true Republicans in their day ... condemning that RINO Teddy Roosevelt for what he did to Taft in 1912. Different scenario but again, by the rules of the game. Don't like the rules? Change them or plan accordingly. Electoral Politics 101.
Nice to see you have a total lock on the truth ... if a professed conservative happens to agree with you. Thanks for the "heads up." I can smoke now since that was a liberal initiative ... I'll take your word for it ... .smoking is NOT a health risk .. it is a LIBERAL lie. Other examples will come to mind. I'm think asbestos. Thoughts on that (tongue-in-cheek ... hope you can sense that).
And the answer to the left is ... that's the market. Buyers and sellers. Same applies here.

Then, follow up. Who counts the votes in Mississippi?
So you denigrate someone who studies western civilization? The classics? Philosophy? The great books? The history of the U.S. constitution? Last time I checked, those fall within the general category of liberal arts.
To follow up, given the percentage of women that voted Democrat since 1980 ... Given the percentage of women that supported Obama in 2008 and 2012 .... Are you contending that they were all women dependent on government? Are you contending that women are more easily fooled than men? Especially white men? Is that your position? Just wondering? Anxious for your answer. With respect, PH
That is edifying. Not! Quit trafficking in stereotypes.
58-20 ... after the election of 2012 .. House of Reps ... 58 Dem Women ... 20 Reps. 16-4 ... as of the Senate elections of 2012 ... 16 Dems, 4 Reps. Check CAWP ... Center for American Women and Politics ... a treasure trove ... all verified ... the gap is similar at the state legislative level. More women run as Dems, more women are nominated as Dems, more women win as Dems. Facts. Women have voted more Dem than men since 1980. Why? What is going on? Why the advantage?
Not a stereotype. Look at the science of male and female development. Sheesh. It has been there for years. Women mature ... intellectually ... earlier than men.
