Good day, Senator Thad Cochran. You are up for re-election in 2014.

You are from a state (Mississippi) that is exceptionally safe for the GOP, no matter who is running. And clearly, yesterday’s epic failure by Chuck Hagel to sell himself to skeptical Senators – or, indeed, Hagel’s epic failure to avoid embarrassing his new Democratic masters – has already made you decide to reassess your support of him for Secretary of Defense.  So no doubt this post is unnecessary.

No doubt.

PS: The grassroots Republican base is developing a taste for primary challenges in the Senate.  It’s also getting fairly proficient in carrying those off.  So nobody assume that Cochran is bulletproof – particularly since every GOP partisan in the country will, by the end of the week, have seen Ted Cruz’s evisceration of Chuck Hagel.
