I hope that this works out as well as Delaware and Nevada did for the Republicans for the Senate in 2010. However, this is Indiana we're talking about. It's a state that seems to be dead set on pretending it's right between Alabama and Mississippi. I'm going to guess the anti-intellectual, reactionary, social Darwinian candidate will win. Well, at least the candidate leaning the most in that direction. Indiana Democrats aren't usually products of progressive enlightenment either.

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: I don't really follow politics... Is this a big deal? Is the dude who lost his seat really powerful or something?


If these people are happy, be concerned.
 
2012-05-08 08:11:20 PM
Lugar doesn't even live in Indiana.
 
2012-05-08 08:11:35 PM

Rex_Everything: Does this put the seat in play for the Dems? That'd be hilarious



I'd rather have a conservative loose than have a RINO win. Everyone talks about the republicans that drove the car in the ditch. this is the process of removing them.

saintstryfe: These farkers are gonna lose the republicans the senate.


They'll just blame ACORN and push harder to disenfranchise even more voters.

Scroll up.

Based on the headline I thought a teabagger had killed someone.

These comments are hysterical, both definitions.

Aarontology: Gergesa: Ok now let's all place wagers on what the Republican establishment is thinking regarding this.

It means a full retard vp pick


They did that once with Sarah Palin, they wouldn't be dumb enough to do that ag...

wow, I made it almost to the end of that sentence before cracking up.

mainstreet62: Did anyone else think for a split second that Dick Cheney was assassinated by a Jared Loughner type idiot?

I did.


I really was hoping TFA was about handing Cheney his prosthetic ass in an epic debate or tirade.

You can't kill him anyway. He'd probably survive a nuclear carpetbombing--with Keith Richards.

Donnelly, a conservative Democrat, supports gun rights and the Keystone pipeline and opposes abortion rights and climate change legislation.

You know what I love about American elections? I love that we have real choices in contrast to places like the former Soviet Union where the joke elections involved one party and one candidate for each office.

With Dick Luger out, he can only be replaced by Peter Shotgun or Uzi Schlong.
 
2012-05-08 08:13:10 PM
Looks like Obama found himself a new cabinet member

Dear Mr. Rove.
You made this Golem, now you have to deal with it.
Best Wishes,

Another coward got primaried - good. If the tea baggers have done nothing right it isn't getting rid of douchebags like Lugar. He didn't have the balls to stand up for everyone else in Indiana...fark him if he caved to tea baggers. Once people see what a cocksucker the new guy is they'll learn. Too bad it has to be that way.
 
2012-05-08 08:14:24 PM
They do know that Dick's seniority wont pass to his replacement don't they?
 
2012-05-08 08:14:27 PM

Lord of Allusions: Uzi Schlong.


now that would be a terrible porn star name.
 
2012-05-08 08:14:27 PM
You reap what you sow.
 
2012-05-08 08:14:49 PM
Any word on the NC vote?
 
2012-05-08 08:15:02 PM

Doktor_Zhivago: Newsflash. Really? Teatard beats repubtard. Who gives a shiat.


Right, just like Lisa Murkowski in Alaska. It is doable, if he has as many favors to call in as she did.
 
2012-05-08 08:15:12 PM
36 years in the Senate is too long for anyone.
 
2012-05-08 08:15:18 PM

* raises hand *

But this is almost as entertaining...

Or Remington Johnson.

its all good. if nothing else, the teabaggers just thwacked someone who had seniority in the US senate. even if they put a rabidly insane idiot into that senate seat, he'll be low man on the totem pole for at least a decade. everyone else who was below Lugar in Senate committee assignments just got an instant promotion.
 
2012-05-08 08:15:49 PM
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa..........!

**GAAAAAAAAAASP**

And I'm spent.
 
2012-05-08 08:16:05 PM
LMAO. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy. As much as having a nutjob potentially for a Senator sucks, at least he will be a junior nutjob instead of a senor one.

This is the best thing that could happen for the Democrats.

Thank you, teabaggers for taking a safe win and practically handing it to the Democrats.
 
2012-05-08 08:16:44 PM
I look forward to the day indepents out number both parties combined and they need to abandon their bases to seek the true middle. But I will be satisfied with republicans being unelectable because they abandoned the same independents in search of the religious right. Faustian bargains are delicious.
 
2012-05-08 08:16:52 PM

bulldg4life: HE WORKED WITH OBAMA ON ISSUES?!?!?!?!?

How DARE he. That's not what congressmen should do.


I honestly think the revelation that he hasn't even pretended to live in Indiana for 20 plus years did him in as much as his RINOness.
 
2012-05-08 08:16:53 PM

spongeboob: They do know that Dick's seniority wont pass to his replacement don't they?


shhhh! don't tell them that...this is too much fun to watch.
 
2012-05-08 08:16:58 PM
So angry. I think the Fark politics people can keep companies that make ulcer medication in business for years to come.

This is the process of giving them an even bigger, faster car.

Unless Lugar pulls a Lieberman and runs as an independent.

Interesting indeed.
 
2012-05-08 08:17:19 PM
Also, I want to again say that the news flash tag is warranted, at least compared to how it's usually used:

Good. Anyone that voted for the bailouts and raising the debt ceiling needs to go.

Lugar, 80, has served in the Senate since 1976. The top Republican on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, he is known for his extensive work on crafting bipartisan foreign policy, which has included reaching across the aisle to pass legislation with Democrat Sam Nunn to disarm nuclear warheads in the former Soviet Union.

Oh yeah... this guy sounds like a real asshole....

Lugar's willingness to work with Democrats made him a target: Mourdock ran ads showing President Obama discussing reaching out to Lugar as evidence that the six-term senator should be defeated.

While this guy sounds like a rational champion of the people.

Ugh.

Amen and bring on the term limits.

South Dakota voted out Tom Daschle for John Thune and Daschle would be majority leader right now.

you should keep killing off members of the GOP until you achieve perfect unity and purity. shine on you crazy diamond!

Their candidate is a worse version of Kerry. A joke VP is all they have left.

Who is the craziest woman of color the Republicans have to offer?

God-is-a-Taco: Doktor_Zhivago: Newsflash. Really? Teatard beats repubtard. Who gives a shiat.

It's actually quite a bit telling, actually. People often talk about "the polarization of politics", but it's lead by the GOP which is lead by the tea party, which was created by the GOP.
It's a train wreck inside of an erupting volcano during an earthquake, and it's bad for the country but good for short-term entertainment.



Luger has been unbeatable for years. He was an institution in that state, the dems didn't even have a candidate run against him every election. Then this tea bagger comes out of the gate a shiattin and a gettin the kind of derp we've come to know and facepalm about, and screws Luger over.
 
2012-05-08 08:19:40 PM
Perhaps now he can drop his alias, re-enter the real world, and go back to his given name, Cock Beretta.
 
2012-05-08 08:19:43 PM
HOW DARE HE WORK FOR COMPROMISE AND BALANCE??!!

HE'S A TRAITOR!!!!!

Who is angry?

This is good news for everyone, Dems and Teabaggers.

Projection? Are you a Republican?
