Lugar the next victim of the new right?
They are going to trash his hard work on nuclear proliferation issues and now they're gunning for his job. He's one of the last non-crazies on the right.

1. Like having lunch with a tiger
the meal is finished but the tiger remains hungry.
Lugar is about to learn what President Obama will
ultimately learn. The right-wing of the Republican
party is out of control and one cannot negotiate with
them and it's time to stop trying.

3. WOWO
The Fort Wayne talk radio station afternoon drive time guy often says things like "We don't need anymore Republicans like Lugar in Congress."

As much as Congressman Pence would like to run for President I don't see him landing the financial backing to make a run for the top job. I suspect this is an attempt to lay the foundation to replace Lugar with Pence after his bid for the presidency fails.
