Sen. Saxby Chambliss won’t run for re-election in 2014; Joe Scarborough has a case of the sads

Sen. Saxby Chambliss is reportedly scrapping plans to run for a third term in 2014.

The Georgia Republican was expected to face a tough primary battle.

Aww. Joe Scarborough is taking the news hard.

And the speculation begins:

Paging Tom Price:


If a Gingrich run means the return of Newt Judges You, we may have to issue an endorsement!


Erick Erickson says he won’t be one of the candidates.


Chambliss releases a statement:

    Scarborough obviously does not know the meaning of “Bedrock”

    • JoeMusgo

      Maybe Morning Schmo means Chambliss represents the Fred Flintstone wing of the Republican party.

      Or conservative.

    Just in time to vote in a real Conservative Republican. 2014 – I have dreams of hope and change! We must keep the house and take the senate. BO will be powerless for at least his last two years. I know it’s not easy, since they control the media and the narrative, but if we can just get valid voter ID in place before then, we have a real shot at it! I will never give up and this could be our last chance. Get motivated and give it all you’ve got. Stick together, defend our candidates of choice and don’t back down or buy into the lies when they start the attacks. *VICTORY in 2014*

    Cheer up, Morning Joe.
    Maybe do something nice for a youngster. Take Donny Deutsch to lunch at Chuck E. Cheese.

    Herman Cain getting elected to that seat would be awesome, if for nothing else, liberals heads would explode at the thought “a black man got elected as a Republican from Georgia?!?!”. That and it would expose Democrat’s innate racism, as they called him all sorts of vile racist names.

    • Noah Lee

      that would be 2 black republicans in senate to 0 for the dems. but, were really just voting for them to cover our racism. /sarcasm

    • JoeMusgo

  • Booker

    It’s Tea Party Time!!!!

  • lainer51

    How can THAT make him sad when he works with Mika everyday…now that is a real reason for the “blues”

  • Randi Starr

    It’s good for a man to recognize his limitations……..bye Chambliss

    Unfortunately it means he can vote for anything Obama and Reid want passed until 2014, w/o worry.
