The backstory for this post, that is.
Dick Lugar (or one of his toadies) has dropped by our corner of Hoosierland to let the world know that the Lugarites are still really ticked off about losing the GOP primary. Read the comments from “Guest,” it would appear that Obama’s favorite GOP Senator thought Indiana owed him a job for life. (Nevermind he had already outlived most tools his age and nevermind he had been in the Senate longer than 95% of most Senators.) Dick’s apologist appearing here under Guest seems like the kind of person who would sneak in your house and leave a bunch of dead bunnies in her/her wake.
Speaking of bunnies, Linda Zimmerman is the Everready Bunny of profamily causes in NE Indiana. Linda and her hubby Max are recent award winners (from Cathie Humbarger’s Right to Life) for their decades of local activism, and the Zimmermans have the inside track on the replacement of Dick Lugar.
Here is what Linda wants you to know about the fall of Obama’s favorite RINO Senator:
I would like you to know these FACTS: #1: More than 1/2 of the Indiana Republican Central Committee members ASKED Mr. Mourdock to run for the U.S. Senate AGAINST Lugar in the Republican Primary without conferring without each other. Lugar was ASKED to retire and he would not. #2: The Republican party was so sick of Lugar’s voting record and not coming back to Indiana (He has not lived here since 1977) that over 70% of the Indiana Republican Party County Chairman PUBLICLY endorsed Mourdock on the day he announced he was running AND more than that backed him behind the scenes. #3. In the Indiana REPUBLICAN Primary Richard MOURDOCK received more than 61% of the votes while Lugar got a little under 39%. There is plenty of reason Lugar was rejected FINALLY. He USED to be a good, conservative, REPUBLICAN Senator, but has not been for years. Mr. Mourdock IS a grassroots Conservative REPUBLICAN who did not NEED to be a Senator, but felt he was qualified and even though he was ready to retire after working 30 years in private industry as a geologist, serving two terms of county commissioner (refusing to run for a 3rd term because he DOES believe in term limits, and serving in his second term as our State Treasurer, being 61 years of age, was set for life…but he cares enough for his country and his state to serve WHEN ASKED! So, Mr. guest, if you want to retain the Senate in the Democrats hands and KEEP Harry Reid as the Senate boss, go ahead and vote for anyone else OTHER than Mr. Mourdock. But if you like the idea of firing Harry Reid, and if you trust the REPUBLICANS in the State of Indiana, you should put aside your sour grapes and support Mourdock with your vote. What do you care about most?
