Shockwaves were sent across District 4 in Mississippi’s Republican primary on Tuesday when Steven Palazzo’s grip on the district seemed to be slipping away.

Swept into office in 2010 in the Tea Party revolution that vowed to drain the swamp and end the world of career politicians, Palazzo has shown time and time  again that he has become a creature of that swamp. He is a career politician who banks on wrapping himself in the American flag, all while spouting hollow platitudes about fighting for the people of Mississippi. If he is emblematic of a fighter for Mississippi, he is little more than a political punching bag — a tomato can, in boxing parlance. He fights for his own re-election.
