Richard Mourdock wins Indiana primary

Richard Mourdock wins Indiana primary

It was a blow out, more than anyone expected.  At latest count it looks like a 20 point win.

Mourdocks victory speech was great.  I’ll post it when it is available.  (Now available at Right Scoop but no embed)

For now, you’ll have to do with a photo:


Looks like Tom Barrett, Mayor of Milwaukee, will go up against Scott Walker in the Wisconsin recall.

North Carolina passed a constitutional amendment enshrining one man – one woman as the sole recognized marriage.  The margin was large (about 60% in favor) and the turnout was unusually large for a primary election date.

A federal prisoner running in the Democratic presidential primary in West Virginia apparently is getting close to 40% of the vote against that other Democratic presidential candidate.  This is too good to check:  Here’s his mug shot.

      The man can’t control his age. What he can control are his actions in connection with the people who invested faith and money in him. That is his failure, not his getting older.

        Oh ok -They can go to the Hall of Near Extinction where age is not the factor. After all America is on the Threatened list & it is not that old at all.

Noticing MSM–and I include Fox News-

kinda playing the ‘ol-“in other news..there was a vote in Indiana…hey, look! a squirrel!”

Bye, bye, Dick Lugar! Hello Richard Mourdock! Congratulations!

There’s a lesson in this.

Are you listening, Mitt Romney?

Should Walker prevail, that lesson will be resounding.





In the NC primary for president , almost 200K voted “no preference” vs. BO!

That’s gonna leave a dent!

Interesting here with the WI Governor Primary – Barrett (D) to face Walker (R). (which was predicted). Looks like Falk didn’t even carry her liberal bastion of Madison.

Walker was basically unopposed and he has 97% of the vote.

With 50% of precincts reporting, the total for the 4 Democrats is 301,045.

With 51% in, Walker has 330,025 Wonder what that shows, considering Republicans really didn’t need to get out and vote.

Iowahawkblog has two funny blogs about NC

David Burge @iowahawkblog

I demand President Obama pull the DNC from Charlotte, publicly condemn NC for its bigotry, and refer it to a war crimes tribunal. NOH8!

Let’s face it: if the DNC holds their convention in NC now, it’s tantamount to embracing Pol Pot on a mountain of skulls. NOH8!

“Indiana Hocks a Lugar”


I didn’t realise prisoners could run for office.

    Keith is also Death Row.

    I was impressed by the Shuttle service advertised on the webpage . Now that would be a cool way to spend a day . I wish had seen that when I was in in WV. They could have found someone up for visiting.

    Next visit it will be a cert.

Bye Bye Dickey. Senator Lindsey Grahamnesty, are you paying attention tonight in Indiana? 2014 is coming up soon enough for Lindsey, we surround you.

Keith Judd’s info lists him as “mixed race”. Perhaps he also is 1/32nd Cherokee.

The lugee has been discharged.

Thanks Indiana voters.

This is cool and all but wasn’t there a tea party underdog Senate candidate in Florida who now is pushing amnesty and who opposes Arizona? Murdoch will join the GOPE before he is sworn in.

    Thanks for the uplifting comments.

    Are you referring to Marco Rubio?

    We are never going to agree with anyone 100% of the time.

    Tell us about your perfect candidate that will never be corrupted. I would like to vote for him/her.

LOL…. I think Walker is a lock in June

Game Over In Wisconsin …. Walker Likely To Keep Seat.

Mourdock gave a classy speech, especially liked his reach out to Senator Lugar. So, now the question might be whether Indiana allows write-in votes and then whether Lugar would pull a Murkowski in the general?

Still, maybe Romney will read the Tea Leaves and begin to get religion about how his campaign should run!

    Juba Doobai! in reply to Doug Wright. | May 9, 2012 at 1:55 am

    Indiana law prevents Lugar from pulling a Mrskcrjhasky.

      Milhouse in reply to Juba Doobai!. | May 9, 2012 at 2:25 am

      I’m not sure about that. He can’t be a candidate, but is there anything preventing people from writing him in?

        JackRussellTerrierist in reply to Milhouse. | May 9, 2012 at 4:12 am

        Given his 20% loss, an attempt at that seems highly unlikely. Murkowski was very close in her loss, which is what spurred her to run indy – same thing when Joe Lieberman ran and won. She also was looking at many more years ahead of her in a political life than Lugar is.

    JackRussellTerrierist in reply to Doug Wright. | May 9, 2012 at 4:20 am

    It doesn’t matter much about his campaign. In the long run, Mitt will always be Mitt no matter what he says or does during his campaign, and it’s a crying shame that he’s the likely nominee. Of all the good people, we’re ending up with a vicious, lying, back-stabbing, fair-weather, flip-flopping, suede shoe boy hustler. Pathetic.

The problem is that he gets a lucrative pension, medical care and will still be called “Senator”. Pour me a big cup of TEA.

    Yep, we should not have to provide for their retirement. Let them use their money wisely and provide for themselves.

    BannedbytheGuardian in reply to Towson Lawyer. | May 9, 2012 at 2:14 am

    At 80 he should be dead . A decade tops .

    Maybe before if his DUI 79 year old wife drives him.

It now looks like I will retire in NC. The weather is calmer than Chicago’s and Asheville is a beautiful area. I love sourthern cooking, there’s great barbeque and seafood all around and the sanctity of natural marriage remains, at least legally, intact.
Look out Andy here I come.
