Tea-Party Strikes Again?

Indiana Senator Lugar Defeated by Tea-Party Candidate

Sen. Richard Lugar of Indiana lost his re-election bid in the state's Republican primary Tuesday, ending the 36-year career of a GOP elder statesman and handing the Tea Party movement its biggest upset victory so far in the 2012 elections.
Lugar was ousted by state Treasurer Richard Mourdock, whose campaign against Lugar was backed by conservative groups including the Tea Party Express, the anti-tax Club for Growth, the National Rifle Association and the Tea Party-aligned Freedom Works, and by former Republican Alaska governor Sarah Palin.

"Bipartisanship ought to consist of democrats coming to the Republican point of view" - Indiana Senate Republican Candidate Richard Mourdock

I will never understand how anyone can support a candidate that doesn't know the meaning or definition of bipartisanship. Hey, what do I know?

Sound off.......

What is your definition of bipartisanship?
Does Mourdock's win help the Democrats?
