"They asked us to put up or shut up. Here we are. Here we are with the evidence," McDaniel said at a news conference in Jackson.

  9. ThinkAgain - Don't like Congress? Get rid the repub/tea bag majority.

    I guess in Mississippi you don't have the freedom to change your mind and vote for the candidate of your choice.

    Nothing like yet another gop/tea bag "freedom-lover" working day and night to take away the very thing they proclaim to hold so dear ...

    Bring out your dead! Hopefully it won't matter, neither is a good choice, even the old timers have to play by the new rules, he with the most money wins, can't wait for the Koch brothers to make a cool hundred billion off the land they bought, once the keystone pipeline goes through. That will be a hard lesson for us, its not if, but when, the effects of this stuff spilling makes crud oil seem like koolaid.

    [SARCASM ALERT]

    He's going about this completely wrong. He should shutdown the November election, instead. Setup picket lines at every polling station across the state, and prevent anyone from voting.
