Congratulations to Indiana

Congratulations to Indiana State Treasurer Richard Mourdock and Indiana. I met Mourdock at BlogCon last year in Colorado. He’s a smart guy, dedicated, and, very odd for a politician, knows how to listen and pay attention. He didn’t just show up to talk at us and leave. He arrived early and sat in the audience with us to listen to the other speakers. I thought he was just another quiet blogger until he was introduced.

It really seemed like he was there to learn as much as to campaign.

As far as the primary goes, Lugar’s appeal to Democrats to vote in the Republican Party’s primary was telling—not on Lugar, but on the biased media. Think what would happen if a tea-party candidate were to try to get Republicans to vote in a Democratic Primary to depose the incumbent Democrat. The establishment would attack them nonstop until election day and for several weeks afterward.

In response to Election 2012: The Long Hot Summer: For election blogging outside of California.
