Yes, but the Citizens' Grand Jury assembled at the Skeeter Holler Grange has already appointed McDaniel as SenaRepreGovernor, and also ordered Obama to be taken from the White House, placed in stocks and paddled by Sarah Palin dressed as Betsy Ross, because Constitution.

The time to question your state's perhaps flawed voting rules is not after you lose, you mean-spirited little twit.

Dear Mr. McDaniel:
Nobody likes you. You're an asshole. Piss off.

Sincerely,
Everyone

McDaniel himself also released a statement: "A candidate for office in Mississippi should not have to raise $100,000 to verify an election was carried out legally in every single one of Mississippi's eighty-two counties "

They don't, fool.  You just lost.

FTA:

"Today's decision was not made by the entire Supreme Court, so our legal team will request that the entire Supreme Court panel rehear our petition for the original election records to be released to the McDaniel campaign," Chris McDaniel's lead attorney Mitch Tyner said in a statement. "In addition to asking for our case to be heard by the entire Court, we will also ask for the opportunity to present oral arguments. The integrity of every future statewide and district wide election hinges on this decision."

Meanwhile, in the decision:

"Before the Court en banc is the Emergency Petition for Writ of Mandamus and Petitioner's Supplement to Emergency Petition for Writ of Mandamus filed by Chris McDaniel, the Response to Emergency Petition for Writ of Mandamus filed by Gayle K. Parker, Harrison County Circuit Clerk, and the State of Mississippi's Response to Emergency Petition for Writ of Mandamus filed by the Mississippi Attorney General."

The definition of "en banc" is:

"French for "in the bench," it signifies a decision by the full court of all the appeals judges in jurisdictions where there is more than one three- or four-judge panel. The larger number sit in judgment when the court feels there is a particularly significant issue at stake or when requested by one or both parties to the case and agreed to by the court. "

Which leads me to the question:

Who is a bigger idiot, Chris McDaniel or his attorney?

The longer Chris McDaniel continues this charade, the more likely his political career is completely over. But hey, at least he'll have a good and long career with the **cough non-political cough** organization True the Vote!

Ah, I see. McDaniel's lawyer is talking about the fact that two judges declined to participate (I'm guessing they recused themselves for some reason).

I highly doubt he's going to get the outcome he was hoping for even if he gets everybody.

FTFA: The campaign has yet to file a formal challenge to the election results, but has filed lawsuits demanding access to poll records.

Without filing a formal challenge to the election results, I don't understand why they think they are entitled to access to anything.

He does seem to have hit the point of diminishing returns straight on with his sour face.  Maybe he's planning a book like Akin.

But it is somewhat of a relief that Teabaggers have no talent for strategy.

According to the decision, they also didn't file any evidence in their petition, either. 3 of the Mississippi Supreme Court Justice made a statement saying that it's impossible to grant relief or deny relief because the McDaniels didn't present any evidence to justify granting or denying relief.

When local reporter Scott Simmons asked them if they have enough evidence to file a legal challenge of the election, Tyner replied: "Yes. There's already enough evidence to file the challenge."

If they already have enough evidence, then why do they need to look at voter registration rolls and why haven't they filed the challenge?

2014-07-18 10:07:54 AM  
Perhaps I'm wrong, but I see this as the next logical step in the Tea Party tactic of tantrum-throwing.  They've been remarkably successful with it so far, managing to hold hostage (or force defeat of) several important pieces of legislation in Congress. The GOP seems to be getting tired of their shiat and is now shutting them out quietly, not backing them to primary the mainstream candidates out... but tantrum-throwers do not go quietly.  Now, they're going to throw tantrums against their own party, to force them to do what they want.  Just like they've done with the Congressional Caucus.

Good luck with that.

That's actually grammatically correct - in verb form, true means "to make even, symmetrical, level, etc."

You know... to unskew.
 
2014-07-18 10:10:46 AM  
Oh - I forgot to say, the reason they think they can win is that they actually believe their own rhetoric about being a movement of the people.  They honestly seem to believe that the voters put them in office, not the party machinery.  So, in their universe, throwing a public tantrum will win - because it will rally the people to their cause.  What they don't know is, their base thinks what the Party and Fox News tell them to think.

So again - good luck with that.

"A candidate for office in Mississippi should not have to raise $100,000 to verify an election was carried out legally in every single one of Mississippi's eighty-two counties."

Most candidates don't carry around this tremendous level of butthurt when they lose.

Just let it go, because, man, it's gone.

Do you know who's super excited about this? Travis Childers. He's the Former Congressman who is running as a  "Democrat" who voted against Obamacare, is opposed to gay marriage and gun control.

Now, I have no use for Blue Dogs in general, but I would lol and lol if Mississippi Coakley'd their Senate election.

I think I read that as a losing candidate in a party runoff, under the MS constitution he cannot subsequently run for the same seat as an independent. Someone will know for sure.
