@AriFleischer downplayed the TEA Party win on Twitter:

Lugar’s loss had less 2do w T-party &more 2do w losing touch back home. 2/3 of establishment GOP county chairs were w Mourdock.

Send an appropriate Tweet to Ari if you are so inclined. I did.

I didn’t hear the whole thing but from what I did hear Dick did fine. He endorsed Mourdock and also said he wanted a GOP President. It was unobjectionable.

Palin endorsement put his poll numbers in the strato. The conservative army wiped out Lugar.

The ‘Press” will be as dead as the rino’s and socialists. We just need to concentrate, donate and make it so. The new media “average Americans” is rising.

Eric Cantor is being primaried.
It would do my heart a world of good if he went down.

What Hoosiers did today will help conservatives in Texas and Utah. The message is clear. If u are a Rino in a conservative state, and u have a credible tea party candidate running against u... Watch out. U are next.
R u listening Lindsey. R u listening Coker and Alexander.

That is the gospel truth:) Lugar has an F rating from the NRA, was the first republican to back Obama’s supreme court nominee..Sotomayer and he supports the Dream Act.
The Tea Party is alive and well in Indiana, Utah and fighting hard in Wisconsin. How do you think Rove and Coulter like that?

Grassroots is the way to win back control! so many only vote in presidential elections and stay home during the interim races. You are so right...the fight starts with the dogcatchers of America..lol

"Now you've done it ~ given away the "shock moment" ~ because Marion County is usually a controlling factor in these elections. 17% of results ain't no thang ~ Naptown is bigger than that."

Oooh, I didn't want to dis, but the 'mo was clearly at least 55-45 at all four points from the Crossroads, and no way for Tricky Dick to overcome even if he did yield an unlikely 2:1 in Indianoplace.

But the media and the GOP RINO establishment said that the Tea Party was dead and that the Occupy Wall Street movement would take over? How many RINO US members of Congress have been primaried out by the Tea Party? We will still have work to do.

The conservative Super-pacs can now match the gope super-pacs in money, thus leveling the playing field. Given a credible tea party candidate, anything is within reach in the future. Tokyo Rove’s and the bushites r sweating tonite.

That wasn't an issue for me. How many Senators live in their districts? Lugar has a farm here. He owns property here. How he voted was an issue.

As much as we would all like to attribute Lugar’s loss to a groundswell of conservatism, your analysis is probably closer to the mark. Hoosiers tend to be egalitarian; the notion that Lugar couldn’t be bothered to even own a house in Indiana didn’t sit well with us.

I think Peggy Noonan just jumped the shark. Rush took her on today and made mincemeat out of her.

Evidently she was repaying some favor for that absurd action of endorsing Luger when she could have, just throwing it out there, kept quiet.

One at a time, not as fast as I’d like, but one at a time we flush out the traitors.

Kind of sad that one I once respected goes down to nothingness but they make their choice.

Missed it? give me a brief on it. She has become a member of the Coulter Club. IF some of the so called conservative journalists would reach out to the Tea Party voters and the conservative grassroots folks they would maybe get a clue as to how disgusted we are..but they deal inside the beltway for their info.

Lugar certainly lost touch with the grassroots.. he doesn’t seem like a bad guy outwardly, but the math is simple:

RINO votes + >3 decades in Senate + viable TEA Party candidate = GETOUTTAHERE!

I had to rely upon Fox News for election results last night and all they were reporting out of Indiana was that Romney had won, but nothing about the Senate primary.
