    This from a conservative website -

    "Democrats could gain if Indiana's Lugar loses U.S. Senate seat

    By Nick Carey

    (Reuters) - "The last time Republican Senate veteran Richard Lugar stood for election, in 2006, he was so respected that the Democrats did not bother to run against him and he won his Indiana seat with 87 percent of the vote...

    Although traditionally Republican, Indiana has become more of a swing state in recent years. If small-government advocate Mourdock wins on Tuesday, Democratic candidate Joe Donnelly is seen as having a better chance of winning in the November general election than if the more moderate Lugar is the Republican candidate.

    "It would be a much more competitive race with Mourdock in it," said Jennifer Duffy who tracks Senate races for the nonpartisan Cook Political Report.

    The only poll so far pitting Donnelly, a U.S. congressman, against Mourdock, taken back in March, showed a tie, while six-term incumbent Lugar had a 20-point lead against the Democrat..."

    Brian, for goodness sakes. We don't advertise our whites-only clubs. There are thousands of them out there...but we just kinda keep it quiet.

    But I admit the local polo club has no blacks. If you're a white protestant, I could give you their contact information for membership. (Blue eyes a plus)!

    Richard Mourdock defeats Sen. Dick Lugar in Indiana

    "...Democrats view Lugar's loss as their best chance of capturing the seat, preferring to go up against a newcomer who spent the primary marketing himself to the far right instead of facing a longtime lawmaker who boasts support from independents and Democrats in the state."

    The proof of the pudding is in the tasting, and it will be November before we know how it taste. But if it turns out to be a bitter bile, I'll tell you so.

    Man, I thought I had earned a yard with a 95, but some other guy came in with a 96.

    Cleaned up on the Lewis Class because he did not play it.
