I refer, of course, to the actions of Rove, the Chamber of Commerce, Haley Barbour, et. al. in tarring U.S. Senate candidate Chris McDaniel as a virulent racist. In doing so, they not only attacked their own base, they not only stole a primary election using illegal tactics, but they also abandoned any semblance of principle.
WAR: THE MURKOWSKI PLAYBOOKTruly disgusted, I thought to myself: why not use their own tactics against them? After incumbent Beltway RINO Lisa Murkowski lost her GOP primary in 2010 to Joe Miller, she ran in the general election as a write-in candidate. She won, becoming the first to win as a Senate write-in in 50 years.
I don't believe in sitting out elections. There are fairly conservative Senate candidates running in several states, and it would be a mistake to abandon them on the battlefield.
That said, Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Thad Cochran (R-MS) must both be made to pay a heavy price for their unconscionable actions.
WRITE IN CHRIS McDANIEL, CRUSH THAD COCHRANChris McDaniel has a viable legal challenge against Cochran's outrageous victory. Had only Republicans voted in the, er, Republican primary, McDaniel would have won in a crushing landslide, by approximately 25,000 votes. As it turns out, however, more than 30,000 Democrats voted in the GOP primary, many of them illegally. Those Democrats who voted in the primary several weeks ago and voted again in the Republican primary broke state law.
Chris McDaniel is said to be considering a write-in candidacy.
Please contact Chris by calling his campaign office at 601-283-2156 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org and urge him to run.
He deserves to win -- and he can win.
WRITE-IN MATT BEVIN, CRUSH MITCH McCONNELLMitch McConnell needs to go. It is his hidden hand that is behind a range of attacks on conservatives, both overt and covert.
I urge you to contact Matt Bevin and ask him to file as a write-in candidate in Kentucky (he has until 24 October to do so, but obviously the sooner the better). I've already done so, asking him on Twitter.
IF THE GOP WANTS WAR, IT IS WAR THEY WILL GETMcConnell and Cochran must be defeated. I urge you, rather than sitting it out, to support their write-in opponents.
