We interrupt our coverage to bring you this special report.
You just thought he went away, but in the words of George Constanza, “I’m back BABY! I’m back!”
The #MCGOP wing of the Republican party spent the better part of the last 713 days or so since our last update lamenting over the rise and fall of Ted Cruz (who has now TOTALLY sold out to the man he swore to fight to the end – and most people still hate him).
Not ready to be fully consigned to the junk bin of political obscurity, McDaniel kicked the ant hill hard. Pissing off “liberal” Democrats was not nearly as ambitious for the political boy wonder. He has always thought big and over the weekend, he goofed on the Women’s March last Saturday and set his sights on disparaging all women with ink, metal, and/or birth control in their purse, which is generally approaching about half the adult voting population of the US these days.
Suffice it to say, that didn’t go over too well.
With over 18,000 Facebook shares and hundreds of angry comments from women around the country, McDaniel’s highly advanced vote counting operation probably started to get the inkling that his idea of irritating and insulting anything with a uterus may not have been such an awesome idea for future political aspirations. And people noticed including the Independent, Huffington Post , the Week, and of course local outlets like WJTV and Crawdaddy. You know they say that any press is good press, but the women in McDaniel’s life have to at some level wince over this.
Thinking he could emulate Donald Trump, he doubled down again hard calling the “radicals” “cute”. That’s the functional equivalent of telling your wife to “calm down”.
Not to be discouraged, McDaniel ally-for-life Ryan Walters over at Mississippi/Texas Conservative Monthly got more comment traffic than he’s ever had trying to stand up for his bestest buddy. Suffice it to say, it didn’t go well.
But for all the schadenfreude that 99% of the world feels for McDaniel having willingly stuck his balls in this particular bear trap, there’s one dude who’s not quite as cool with it. It’s (you guessed it) State Senator Chris McDaniel . . . of Kentucky. They even look alike which is kinda creepy.
Yep. You got it. There’s another Senator McDaniel. Seems like he’s been getting an ass-chewing as well over just having the same misfortune of being called Senator Chris McDaniel. And it’s no longer cool with him.
Thx to all who filled my social media with comments like these today. Wrong Chris McDaniel, though. And they say civil discourse is dead! pic.twitter.com/j91q1KoppR

You can’t make it up. But maybe McDaniel will answer the bell and run for something bigger so we can have more fun.
That’s the way it was – Day 945 (never say never) of the McDaniel Hostage Crisis.
Good day Mississippi – and good luck.
