Michigander Jen Kuznicki makes some great points during a critique of Dick Lugar's 'concession speech' last night.
The not so gracious Lugar had a few things to say after getting the kick in the jewels reminder that nothing is permanent last night to a Roll Call reporter. In the short blog piece answering his statement, "Well there's your problem, Dick", her analysis nails down the essence of the RINO mentality:
If Lugar was talking about rejecting the founders, or rejecting the constitution, that phrase could be used against the Democrats, but he was talking about rejection of Democrat party policy. He said that Mourdock, a Republican, intends to reject Democrat party policy.
As if there is such a thing as soft opposition. Lugar didn't see the Democrat party as his opposition.
Tell me, what is the purpose of belonging to a party if you are non-partisan or bi-partisan? Either you believe in the party platform, or you don't, and if you don't, don't join the party.
The three phrases Lugar used shows how very out of touch he is, and here's to the great people of Indiana who chose wisely to primary him.
This particular blog post drew the attention of none other than conservative radio host Mark Levin this morning, where he posted it on his fan page.
