Chris McDaniel posted this meme on his Facebook page Sunday night, attacking the daughter of his primary opponent, Sen. Thad Cochran. It featured the hashtag “#Who’sYaDaddy.”
The meme was created in response to this line from a Facebook note on McDaniel by Cochran’s daughter, Kate. Kate Cochran is an English professor at the University of Souther Mississippi.
“I think this is the reason that so many seem swayed by my father’s opponent: he is valued for his lack. Lack of experience (he is not a “career politician.”) Lack of wisdom (he relies solely on Jesus, the Constitution, and common sense*—combined in the veneer of “goodness”). Lack of judgment (he vows to refuse federal monies and to try to impede legislation). Lack of specificity (what are “Mississippi values”?). Lack of perspective (how does he believe for one moment that a junior Senator from the poorest state will have any influence in Washington? How can he believe that he will not want his family to live with him in the D.C. area?).”
