John Tabin thinks a cushy job on K Street is in soon to be former Senator Richard Lugar’s future. While that is certainly a possibility, I have a feeling there might be bigger things on the horizon for the Hoosier who got dunked by Republicans in favor of Richard Mourdock in last night’s GOP primary.
Erick Erickson describes Lugar as “Barack Obama’s favorite Republican Senator.” As Cornell University Law School Professor William A. Jacobson reminds us that during the 2008 campaign, Obama touted his work with Lugar in a campaign ad passing legislation to rein in nuclear weaponry. Not only did Lugar not object to being mentioned in his ad, Lugar praised Obama’s approach on foreign policy and was even mentioned as a possible candidate to be appointed Secretary of State.
Well, Lugar can’t be happy with how he was treated by Indiana Republicans. It would come as no surprise to me if Lugar were to endorse Obama for a second term and if Obama were to be re-elected, he would be rewarded by being appointed Ambassador to Russia. Given how our current Ambassador Michael McFaul isn’t too happy with how he’s being followed by the Russian media I don’t think he’s long for the job and the post is Lugar’s for the asking.
In the meantime, I have a feeling Lugar is going to spend the day playing R. Dean Taylor’s “Indiana Wants Me” over and over again.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
