Surely, you are not referring to Romney, who ran the filthiest, vicious, most dishonest GOP primary in recent history.

We were so blessed to have men like Lou grace us with his presence. RIP
It is beyond despicable to use the CBO report to bolster support for de facto open borders. The CBO arrived at its stunning conclusion that adding 46 million mostly unskilled, poorly educated immigrants in 20 years would bolster GDP by ignoring the huge costs of public services and welfare that would be born by state and local taxpayers and by counting the payroll taxes paid but not subtracting the ultimate payout. Nor is opposing an unnatural increase in the population (through immigration rather than birth) artificially keeping the wages high. Even the CBO admits that American wages will fall in the face of mass immigration and that American unemployment will increase. Yet, business profits will increase, because of the cheaper labor. And then there is the entire political cultural aspect of huge immigration that the CBO does not address: The added crime. Over 50 percent out of wedlock births. The highest dropout rate in the nation. The lack of belief in capitalism, representative democracy, and rule of law. A guaranteed and permanent shift to a one-party system. You ought to be ashamed for your intellectual dishonesty and moral bankruptcy that would allow you to support any policy that would enrich some at the expense of those least able to bear the economic and social burden.
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.

Thad Cochran's Voting-Rights Victory

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.
