    GREAT win for conservatives in Indiana, and everywhere! Let the wave of conservatism sweep us into November and take the next step to ending the liberal madness, methodically and decisively, grass roots style.

  • c4pfan

    Great news! :)

    Ugh, there are anti-Walker ads all over the place. Even here!

    • PFFV

      Now we need to defeat the Union Thugs too! Unions had their place when needed back in the day but we don’t need them anymore. Union = Mob Thuggery

    For those of you that are happy Richard Mourdock won, I would like to say your welcome.

    • MLCBLOG

      What does this mean? ‘splain yourself.

    • kong1967

      Because you voted for him or because you helped in his campaign?

      • http://www.facebook.com/salvatore.anello Salvatore Anello

        Yes to both. And thank all of you for the better then 5 to 1 like ratio :)

    Palin Power! Mourdock is going to make a great United States Senator.

    • Cindy09

      My very thought too: Palin Power!!!

      Palin rules!!

  • PFFV

    The Tea Party will Win Bigtime in November! This is a wonderful first step towards the landslide (True) Conservative Victory ahead! :-)

    • Cindy09

      Let the shaking begin in the ranks!!

    • m0r0

      From your mouth to G-d’s ears.

  • odin147

    the cleansing is at hand…tune out the msm

  • denbren52

    The GOP elite still think Palin was the problem in 2008. This proves Palin is the real power broker.

    Go have lunch with Snarlin’ Arlen- Dick.

  • DCGere

    Tea Party still alive – love it!

  • ApplePie101

    And another one bites the dust. I tip my latticed pie lid to Richard Murdock, and to the state of Indiana for nominating him.

  • Patriot077

    Feels like good juju! I hope the folks in Wisconsin are paying attention and don’t let Walker get away.

    • badbadlibs

      Is Walker losing in the polls? I shudder to ask…..

      • MLCBLOG

        Maybe we better not look too much at the polls. You know they are sometimes used as a propaganda device.

    With this win and the major gains around the country in key party positions by the Ron Paul people, the future looks bright for the next few election cycles. Let’s just hope there is a country left by then.

  • JoelDick

    Main stream news sources (CBS et. al.) are reporting “Lugar loses primary to Tea-Party rival”. Are they that biases that they don’t want to mention the winner by name? I can’t wait for November: “Barak Obama loses Presidency to rich White Opponent”.

    • MLCBLOG

      …and “Tea Party RIVAL?” implying in some way that Dick Lugar was part of the Tea Party. They get really weird sometimes. They are so out of it.

  • white Castle

    With this win and the major gains around the country in key party positions by grassroots people, the future looks bright for the next few election cycles. Let’s just hope ron paul retires.

    • BS61

      Now I’m hungry – after reading your name!

      • MLCBLOG

        I heartily agree. Yum.

    • keyesforpres

      Amen to the crazy uncle retiring.

  • badbadlibs

    A class act. Indiana and America can only benefit from this man being a U.S. Senator.

  • BS61

    I tweeted to Newt that he was wrong!

    • keyesforpres

      Oh geez, did Newt support lugie?

    • wodiej

      This is AWESOME!!

  • kong1967

    Hopefully this is a sign that the Tea Party is still very much alive and that we can look forward to many more victories in November.

  • MLCBLOG

    I love it! these guys are such …. Hoosiers! wonderful. So heartwarming. Inspires confidence in me though I am sure the lamestream news will have a cow.

  • keninil

    Note he said “he left his speech at his apt” — he has already sold his house and is ready to move to DC!!

  • Ariadnea

    Great news for US, conservatives, Tea Party, and Palin!

  • grizzlyrising

    Sarah Palin strikes again!

  • http://twitter.com/Kevlar_Vest Kevlar

    Thank God. Lugar was/is nothing but RINO trash. Thanks for taking out the trash.

    Hopefully, our Tea Party candidate can beat the establishment one here in VA next month. Thanks to lack of media coverage. Many think it’s George Allen only on the ballot.

    Here’s hoping that idiot Luger doesn’t screw us too badly in this lame duck period with that Law of the Sea treaty.

  • http://twitter.com/Narnia_Maiden Tay

    Here’s hoping that idiot Luger doesn’t screw us over by voting for that Law of the Sea Treaty. What a freaking disaster. So glad Mourdock beat him.

    Horray! Love it.

    Did Indianapolis Star endorse anyone?

    When is Boehner up for re-election? Can we do the same to him?

  • Idahoser

    just keep in the front of your mind the NRA supported Hairy Reed when they call wanting money to “fight” for your rights.
