Chris McDaniel, that teahadist in Mississippi whose minions harassed Thad Cochran’s wife, is doing pretty well in the polls and probably has a real chance to become a Senator. A poll a few weeks ago showed him gaining ground (17 points back isn’t bad for a challenger with little name recognition) and a poll today — albeit one of the crazy right-wing variety — shows McDaniel up by seven points.
The Official Media narrative of this year is/will be that the Republican Establishment is back! Jebmentum! Adults in charge again! GOP Daddies 4evah! We need at least one true whack job to win a Republican Senatorial primary.
McDaniel sounds like a major-league asshole (big time), but the enemy of Ron Fournier is my friend.
