From The Hoosierpundit:
Recently, Dick Lugar received an award for protecting the environment at a swanky gala alongside Michelle Obama, Robert Redford, and CNN's Anderson Cooper. Richard Mourdock was at the Marshall County Lincoln Day Dinner.
It's sort of a telling comparison. They've got differing priorities. Mourdock's priority is Indiana, Lugar's priority is partying with his liberal buddies.
And the award Lugar got? Well, he's now in august company with the likes of party-switching former Florida Governor Charlie Crist, ultra-liberal Vermont Senator Patrick Leahy, RINO former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman, and former Vice President Al Gore. And those are on top of Michelle Obama, Robert Redford, and Anderson Cooper; they got their awards at the same event Lugar did.
And what did Lugar get the award for, you might ask? The answer: Forsupporting a key element of Obama's cap-and-trade proposal, for advocating a treaty that harmed American sovereignty, and for "reforming" Federal farm subsidies.
