Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Has Richard Lugar been interviewed yet for his reaction on the Mourdock implosion?

In 2006, Richard Lugar was still such a strong Senator that he didn't even have a Democratic opponent. Only the Libertarians ran against him.

Lugar won 87% of the vote!

This week a seat that just 6 years ago had not even been worth contesting, was won by the Democrats by 6%.

Amazing turnaround of events. And all because the GOP far-right nominated Mourdock.

Do you think Lugar is having the last laugh today?

1. Yep

I think he is. And he should.

I'm watching my facebook closely - I had three female friends flip their party affiliation and one who has point blank said - stop catering to the religious far right and I'll start looking at you again.

2. I Hope That The President.....

....offers him some important and visible position.

Ambassador to somewhere.

That would be poetic justice for a good man.

3. He is 80. He has earned the right to retire and have some good time.

4. He's too much of a gentleman

I think to gloat - in public.
