Their goal is power, and they will do anything to hang on to power.
Thad Cochran’s campaign was a sleazy, dishonest effort that ultimately relied on Democrats to cross over and vote for him, giving him a narrow 6,000 vote majority.
The Haley Barbour machine behind Cochran blatantly asked Democrats to vote in the Republican runoff and distributed materials calling the tea party racist.
They scorched the Earth; they shall now reap the fire. “Cry ‘havoc!’ said he who fought chaos with chaos, ‘and let slip the dogs of war!’”
If this is how the Republican establishment is going to be, two can play that game.
Ordinarily, when the conservative candidate loses in a primary, conservatives pull up their socks, hold their noses and vote for the RINO.
Party unity? Forget about it.
