Especially humourous or telling passages:

“We’re asking for independents. We’re asking for Democrats. We’re asking for unknowns. All of the above, everybody,” he implored, tacitly acknowledging victory among an overwhelmingly Republican electorate was elusive.

“You need to be prepared to decapitate someone as soon as possible. Follow the John McCain model, not the Bob Bennett model,” said the Senate race strategist.

Pendleton town President Don Henderson, a longtime supporter who worked on Lugar’s failed 1996 presidential campaign, recalled that advisers could never persuade the senator to attack President Bill Clinton directly.

Lugar also said he was counting on certain ethnic groups — Syrian and Burmese voters who had recently expressed their support — to help cut into Mourdock’s advantage among hard-core conservatives.

Unusual for Lugar to actually go to Indiana. He must be desperate.

Just so all the RINO’s go to where they all retire forever.

That seat BELONGS to Dick.

He should sue somebody.

Dana Milbank was pimping Lugar in the paper yesterday.

Obviously, quite telling in itself.

I glanced at a couple of random paragraphs just to confirm my opinions of both of them.

Lugar is one particularly arrogant RINO. I think Dickie's going to go down in flames. You know you're desperate when Peggy Noonan stumps for you and your asking for Donkey and Independent support.

Next on the list: Orin Hatch. Time for that dinosaur to be sent to the La Brea tar pits.

I'm seeing very few Lugar signs; most of those I've talked to will not be voting for Lugar.

People here [Anderson, IN] seem much more interested in local races - even for Precinct Committeemen than they are for the Senate race. [There has been a very active push by tea party adherents to replace the old guard, and the old guard is very unhappy about it.]

It appears he listened to his GOP handlers about as much as he’s listened to his constituents. Thankfully, his sheer arrogance has worked in our favor for once! :)

“...Certain ethnic groups-Syrian and Burmese voters...” In Indiana? What the hell is THAT all about? Can there be THAT many? Guess I must be out of the loop or something.
