Was there an apology there? I missed it. To date, Vespa has touted Cochran's brilliant get-out-the-vote strategy with blacks in one column, and now a column on how any effort by McDaniel to prove voter fraud is pie-in-the-sky and suspect. On this Independence Day, shouldn't all Americans of every political stripe celebrate those who are attempting to keep the ballot box inviolate --- even against the odds?
Abuse by regulatory agencies and civil "servants" are the symptom, not the cause. Why do we continue to elect the very people --- in both political parties --- who created the mess we find ourselves in?

Victim Mentality

My dad used to call men who choose not to work bums; we call them victims and recipients. Surely it is a sin to strip these people of all responsibility for their actions.
Conservatives, sit down, shut up, and don't hold anyone accountable for this reprehensible primary. Whatever you do, don't make a fuss. Oh, and by the way, we expect you to vote for our candidates.

What's even more shocking than the race-baiting, hate-mongering campaign run by Cochran and the Barbours and bankrolled by McConnell and Rove is the number of "conservatives" who are telling us to sit down and shut up while giving the perpetrators a pass.
Tell you what, let's not hold anyone accountable for this abhorrent campaign. Let's not put the perpetrators, like Haley and his son on the hot seat for their despicable actions. Let's not call out McConnell and McCain and Rove for bankrolling this travesty. Let's just remain silent and let bygones be bygones with not even a demand of a mea culpa. If Cochran had one ounce of integrity, he would resign. If McConnell and McCain had one ounce of integrity they would be apologizing to McDaniel and to Republican voters instead of patting themselves on the back and crowing about their great win.
I was in such a snit over the berating of McDaniel that I entirely missed that --- thanks.
I guess I am more than a little stunned by this column. Had I not known better, I would have thought Parker was dissecting a well-thought-out strategy for a well-run campaign rather than a filthy race-baiting appeal to pork and hatred.
The dirty tricks were played by the GOP.

Given the shockingly huge number in the "conservative" media who never wrote about the the race baiting campaign by Cochran and Barbour (and presumably condoned by McConnell, McCain, Rove, etc), should we criticize those who do?
