The War on the Tea Party Continues—
After years of smears and attacks the Democrat-media complex is hoping the end of the Tea Party is near.
These small government conservatives who believe in accountability and responsible government need to shut up and go away.
Today the Washington Post reports on “the last stand” of the Tea Party.
After a string of humiliating defeats in Republican primaries this spring, the tea party’s last best hope to oust an incumbent lawmaker is in Mississippi.
At first glance, the deeply conservative state’s Senate primary race seems ripe for an upset. Sen. Thad Cochran has served in Washington for as long as his 41-year-old challenger, state senator Chris McDaniel, has been alive. A proud and prolific earmarker when senators were freer to send pork to their states, Cochran personifies the kind of free-spending Beltway broker that grassroots conservative voters have often revolted against.
Yet McDaniel has failed to put the contest away, even as Tea Party-aligned groups are pouring money into Mississippi to deny Cochran a seventh term. The insurgent has made a series of tactical errors, while Cochran and his establishment allies — well-funded and prepared for combat — have been eviscerating McDaniel on the airwaves.
The race has also been roiled over the past week by a bizarre incident in which a pro-McDaniel blogger was arrested for taking an illicit photo of Cochran’s bedridden wife, Rose, who has dementia and lives in a nursing home.
Hmm. Didn’t a Tea Party candidate just win in Nebraska?… Like, a week ago?
