The Pubbie Establishment Problem

The Establishment Pubbies have a problem.  They deny that they exist, of course--which is a problem in itself.

But in addition, they're reduced to nihilist rationalizations, to wit:

”I’m not for Dick Lugar for what he’s done, but for what he can do.”  --Establishment Member Mitch Daniels (ex-GWB aide.)


Here's a translation:

"Ignore Lugar's despicable track record.  Hope for Change!!!"

Vaguely familiar, no?

The problem for the Blue Bloods is that they have been part of the problem for 50 years. They are as much Progs as the Dhimmicrats, just less Marxist.

Lugar voted for TARP, refused to block second round of TARP funding.

Lugar = RINO.

Huge Votes for Bigger Government by Dick Lugar

FreedomWorks for America has just released our Voter’s Guide to Dick Lugar, a 43-page indictment of the Senator’s Big Government record over his 36 years in Washington.

The Lugar campaign’s response to our Voter’s Guide has been predictably dismissive, commenting that “FreedomWorks opposed less than 1% of Richard Lugar’s votes.”

Yes, let's oust the Dick Lugar's of the mainstream Republikkan orthodoxy in favor of some hick state assemblyman. That will solve all our problems.

Might not solve all of them.

But Lugar's day has passed. About 10 years ago, matter of fact.
