Even in defeat, Lugar — attacking Mourdock’s “partisan mindset” — sounds as if he believes that Senate seat belongs to him.
Tonight he was reminded that it doesn’t. The accolades rolling in from Kerry and President Obama (whose press shop released a statement on Lugar’s “retirement) are an example of why Republicans voted against him. The quote of the night belongs to Hoosier conservative activist Greg Fettig: “The message to the establishment is, ‘You’re our servants. We’re the masters. Do what you’re supposed to do, adhere to the Constitution or we’ll fire you.’”
I have no idea what drives these people, surely everyone knows it doesn’t bloody well work! OK, I understand that the lefties and Obama want to bring down the US because they don’t like it but don’t they have an inkling that they’ll finish up on the pointy end of the totalitairan’s spear. Are they really that stupid? Beats me.
