In Indiana, the veteran Republican U.S. Senator Richard Lugar is being challenged in next week’s GOP primary by Richard Mourdock, a Republican politician who complains that Lugar isn’t conservative enough. Lugar’s record looks plenty conservative to most voters – he’s got a That’s My Congress liberal score of just 8 out of 100.

The name of this Super PAC is Indiana Values SuperPAC Inc. With a name like that, you’d expect the SuperPAC to based in Indiana. The offices of the Indiana Values SuperPAC are hundreds of miles away from Indiana, though. They’re at 1823 23rd Street NW, Washington D.C., in a posh townhouse just two miles from the White House. These Indiana Values seem to be imported.

    To Those Concerned About Access to Marijuana as a Relatively Safe Drug… I will babble on and on and on about this completely unrelated topic, copying and pasting a longwinded comment that I have placed elsewhere around the Internet, only proving that I have toked on the weed so much that I have come to lose all sense of appropriate behavior, thus proving my Pot-Loving argument to be internally incoherent. Or whatever, dude! Copy and paste spam, man!
