What We Learned: I (Don't) Love the '90s

-- Indiana has been a state filled with political activity this month. Both GOP Sen. Richard Lugar and his Republican challenger, state Treasurer Richard Mourdock went up on the radio for the first time this cycle, the state Democratic Party chair was on his way out -- until he made his way back in, and Republican Secretary of State Charlie White was ruled ineligible, which could hand Democrats control of a statewide elected office, something they do not have right now. Something to keep an eye on next month: Will Bob Thomas officially jump into the GOP Senate race? He's indicating he will. Follow-up question: Will he be able to gather the necessary signatures in time to make it onto the ballot? -- Stephen Colbert's super PAC shenanigans are growing increasingly bizarre, but beneath the antics and the humor lies a serious question: Just how far can a super PAC go? This week he wrote an op-ed for Columbia State offering to donate $500,000 to South Carolina counties in order to pay for the state's 2012 primary. The only catch? The state will have to name the primary after Colbert and include his PAC's non-binding referendum -- asking voters whether corporations are people -- on the ballot.
