On a scale of 1 to Super Maxi Hunka-Hunka Burning Cross Grand Kleagle of the KKK, how racist do you have to be to maybe be unelectable in Mississippi?
If you answered ‘Chris McDaniel’ you would be correct. [We would also have accepted 'Editor at Breitbart.com.']
Mississippi state senator McDaniel is hoping to supplant long-time Republican U.S. Senator Thad Cochran, who has held his seat since 1978, because Thad has gone soft in his old age and doesn’t hate on the gubmint and Obammer enuf.
Unfortunately for McDaniel he was born with the gift of gab, yet not with the foresight to know that words you say with your mouth can return to bite you on the ass. Metaphorically, of course. So when the Wall Street Journal reported that McDaniel was, let’s say ‘indelicate,’ when discussing race in 2006 not-post-racial America, he got a little hot and panicky under his 300 thread-count percale evening wear collar.
First off Chris McDaniel wants you to know that, despite sharing an alimentary canal and banging that guy’s wife, he doesn’t even know this v.2006 Chris McDaniel poseur, who sounds like a total dick.
In a phone interview with THE WEEKLY STANDARD, McDaniel distanced himself from his past comments.
Good enough for me. What’s for dinner? Let’s vote!
Oh, wait. There’s more.
2006 Chris McDaniel said he wouldn’t pay taxes if they were just going into the pockets of shiftless no-account lazy children-of-slaves blahs because, hey, haven’t his ancestors done enough for them by losing a war over them? 2006 Chris:
“If they pass reparations and my taxes go up, I ain’t paying taxes,” McDaniel says. “How you going to make me pay for something I had nothing to do with? How you going to do that to me?”
Also, too speaking about a video game featuring a white wrestler holding down a black wrestler that some said was racially charged, 2006 Chris said:
“There’s a white woman, and she’s holding down a black woman. The world’s gone nuts. Listen to this. Minority groups in California screaming that the image is racist. ‘San Francisco politician Tom LeLand says ‘It’s racially charged, unnecessary and clearly offensive to our community.’”
“Well, she wasn’t holding down a gay guy.”
Well , at least he wasn’t racist about the gays.
What does 2o14 Chris have to say now?
Given some of his racially-tinged remarks, how would he be able to reach out to African-American voters? ”I reach out to them because they are fellow Mississippians. I love them,” McDaniel told me. “They’re my friends. They’re my neighbors. They’re who I went to school with. They’re who I played basketball with. They’re wonderful human beings.” People shouldn’t be treated as “racial collectives” but rather as “individuals,” McDaniel said, adding: “I reject racism in all its forms.”
His acknowledgment that he has played basketball with ‘them’ can only be taken to mean that he shares a deep spiritual bond with them as old as I’m Gwin’ Up To Heab’n Anyhow , so slap my hand, black soul man!
Also, too too. About that thing where 2006 Chris called those Mexican sleepy senoritas with the eyes on fire a bunch of ‘hot tamales?’
Why don’t we all immigrate south, let’s go to Mexico. You know, a dollar bill can buy a mansion in Mexico.” he continues, then asking his co-host to translate, “Do you have a sister?”
“What about mamacita?” McDaniel asks. “I think it basically means — and again, I’m an English-speaking Anglo, I have no idea what it means actually. But I’ve said it a few times, just for fun. And I think it basically means, ‘Hey, hot mama. You’re a fine looking young thing.’”
2014 Chris don’ know nuffin’ bout mamacita-ing no ladies:
McDaniel said that he was unable to comment on his “mamacita” remarks because he doesn’t recall the context of the conversation. “I don’t remember, it was almost ten years ago,” McDaniel said. “I was a conservative talk radio host. We talked about dozens and dozens and dozens of issues.”
Weekly Standard writer John McCormack noted that, after his interview with the New Improved Totally Not Racist 2014 Chris McClintock, word got out about his boobie fixation, which is a shame because I’d would have liked to read about 2014 Chris disavowing boobs.

December in Louisiana – sultry and damp as a Fox News blonde. I was working late, signing a stack of letters to district voters to go out in the morning mail. The usual song and dance.

However it looks like yesterday someone left a computer at…
