PAUL HAMPTON: Truth, justice and the American why

What’s next?

But I’ve strayed from the Big Top. I should be looking for McDaniel’s endgame.

There are three possibilities talked about.

1. McDaniel is setting himself up to be a cable news/talk radio gabber. Maybe there’s a reality show there — although it would be a stroke of marketing genius to sell this mess as reality.

2. He makes peace with the GOP and returns to the state Senate. Wait. I said possibilities. Scratch that.

3. He forms a third party and challenges Gov. Phil Bryant for his treason against the Tea Party. He should ask the Democrats for some seed money.
