Lugar Backs Democratic Candidate For Georgia Senate Seat

This comes as no surprise to those of us who figured out long ago that Dick Lugar was a Republican in Name Only. It seems the GOP establishment's favorite Republican is backing a Democratic candidate to fill the Georgia Senate seat being vacated by retiring Republican Sen. Saxby Chambliss. Lugar's political action committee has donated $5,000 to Michelle Nunn's campaign. It's a seat Republicans must hold if they hold any hope of winning back control of the Senate in 2014. Lugar is likely backing Nunn for the seat in an effort to elect yet another CIA-controlled asset like himself to Congress. Nunn is the daughter of former Georgia Sen. Sam Nunn, a close friend of Lugar who is married to Colleen O'Brien, a CIA agent who Nunn met early in his career while visiting the U.S. embassy in Paris where she was pretending to be a State Department employee. Michelle is the CEO of the Points of Light Foundation established by another CIA-lifer, former President George H.W. Bush, a nonprofit foundation chaired by Bush's son, Neil, another CIA asset. She's never run for elective office before, but she plans to rely on her daddy's name to get elected. Speaking of Lugar's endorsement, Nunn said:

"I am immensely honored and grateful for Senator Lugar's generous support in this race. His tenure in U.S. Senate embodied the type of pragmatism and problem-solving Georgians are yearning for in Washington. Both in the Senate and in the international community, Senator Lugar's collaborative approach made us safer and moved our country forward. We need more leaders like Senator Lugar –- not less, and I will strive to follow this legacy in the U.S. Senate."

I liked Sam Nunn, well enough. Sonny Perdue was a very decent man, and Jimmy Carter looks better, every year.

I don't mind Southern populists. Does Michelle have the principles and intellectual horsepower to be a true Southern Democrat? Odds are against it.

Thanks for all this detailed information in this report, Gary. By now, I distrust anyone in public life who is a former Rhodes scholar.
