While yesterday’s primaries did not receive the media coverage of the earlier primaries, it was one of the most important primary nights of the season for a number of reasons:
- Richard Mourdock’s defeat (a$$ kicking) of Richard Lugar – not just the fact that he “primaried” a 36-year member of the Senate, but the margin of victory – 22 points. Contrary to popular belief (among liberals) , the Tea Party’s demise appears to have been greatly exaggerated. Most upset are liberal members of the media and Democrats who praised Lugar for his bi-partisanship (although they would never do anything bi-partisan themselves. Could Mourdock’s win affect Romney’s VP choice?
- The vote banning gay marriage in North Carolina. The Democrats will be holding their convention in a state that: 1) voted to ban gay marriage, 2) has right to work laws and 3) is the state in which our Mullet resides.
- Barack Obama’s incredibly bad month of May continues. Joe Biden isn’t just sticking his foot in his mouth. He’s chewing it off. He launched his campaign to a half-filled arena at Ohio State. Yesterday about 20% of Virginians voted for “some other candidate” and in West Virginia a Texas inmate received 40% of the vote. This comes from the British press because the U.S. media is doing its best to not report it.
- Scott Walker out-polled all the Democrats in Wisconsin. Not a good sign for public employee unions.
