The Republican primary election in Mississippi showed that no matter how far-right a candidate is, there is always a crazier one. Thad Cochran was about to get his ass handed to him by a *Tea Partier, but at the last second Democrats crossed over to vote for him. Mississippi is already messed up, but at least Cochran brought some money back to the state. With him out of there, Mississippi would be messed up even more. So to all the Republicans in Mississippi, you owe Democrats a "thank you" for rescuing you, but I don't think that will ever come.
*I've decided to stop using the term "teabagger." While I think the Tea Party deserves to be called that and they don't deserve to be called the "Tea Party", I think the name is stuck and there's nothing we can do about it. But I will say "Tea Party" ironically.
