35. Lugar is NOT a senile crackpot
I saw the interview this morning. He was sane and thoughtful as usual, except for the comment about putting HCR on hold which was very disappointing but not surprising (Lugar is sane but does wander too far from the fold). But from here to labeling one of the very few wise and considerate Rs left in congress a crackpot is a long way.
