Dick Lugar’s Drunk Wife Crashes Into Parked Car

by Ken Layne

Jack Daniels nipping at your nose ....It’s the holiday season, which means the Northern Virginia suburbs are going to be particularly deadly until January 3 or so, as Republican congresspeople and their drunken wives and rent boys wreak havoc on the icy suburban streets. Congratulations to Charlene Lugar, wife of Republican Senator Dick Lugar, for winning the “First of the Season” award by just crashing into a parked car, because she was (allegedly!) drunk.

Roll Call reports:

Following the stop, Lugar was arrested for driving while intoxicated and taken to the county’s adult detention center where she was processed.

Sen. Lugar issued a statement, saying: “At about 6:30 p.m. last evening, November 18, Mrs. Lugar had a traffic accident in our McLean, Virginia neighborhood. A charge has been filed and a court appearance is scheduled for January. No other persons were in her car or the unattended car she hit. Thankfully, no one was injured. We are deeply sorry and embarrassed that this accident has occurred.”

Jesus christ, six-thirty p.m.??? Charlene Lugar must take Happy Hour very seriously. [Roll Call]

Give the woman a break. She has to have sex at least once a year with Dick Lugar. She deserves a few drinks.

Doglessliberal November 19, 2009 at 1:50 pm

Who refers to his wife as “Mrs. ___”? No wonder she drinks.

BoreExpert November 19, 2009 at 1:50 pm

She was singing yuletide carols and getting drunk with the choir while the Palins dressed up like eskimos.

El Pinche November 19, 2009 at 1:50 pm

Jesus Christ, first Biden’s onslaught, Palin crashes her trailer in the USofA, and now this Senator’s careless lush. Then this post of all partial sentences. WTF!??!?!

freakishlystrong November 19, 2009 at 1:50 pm

Whoa. You mean Wonkett posters are sober at 6:30 pm?! Yay!! Our alt-text overlord is back!

I call sloppy seconds.

el donaldo November 19, 2009 at 1:51 pm

as punishment, she has to wear Bob Dylan’s Johnny Dep wig throughout the holiday season.

slappypaddy November 19, 2009 at 1:51 pm

for a moment, at first glance, i thought that read “country club’s detention center.”

user-of-owls November 19, 2009 at 1:52 pm

Who drives this way ‘doh doh doh’?

Who’s got a big red cherry nose?

[re=462605]Doglessliberal[/re]: most olds in the midwest refer to their wives as “mother”, which is an endless source of skeeve for me.

user-of-owls November 19, 2009 at 1:56 pm

Must be Lugar, must be Lugar

Hey all you East coast elites , the other two prizes are still up for grabs, biggest and most accidents! So remember,
it’s always after 5pm somewhere!

[re=462626]obfuscator[/re]: yes, I have heard that and….ew.

Prommie November 19, 2009 at 1:58 pm

Charlene has been to paradise, but she has never been to herself.

JMP November 19, 2009 at 1:59 pm

Charlene deserves a banhammer; firsties are always tedious, dull and stupid.

scotterl November 19, 2009 at 2:01 pm

A pool should be started by our Wonkette, with appropriate prizes, for those who correctly guess Mrs Boozey McLugar’s BAC at the time of arrest. Just a suggestion on a rainy day… I’m going 1.45 BTW

scotterl November 19, 2009 at 2:01 pm

meaning .0145

Brendan M. November 19, 2009 at 2:02 pm

Dick Lugar is a RINO, so this isn’t as good for schadenfreude as if it had been, say, Hadassah Lieberman.

ph7 November 19, 2009 at 2:04 pm

She lookslike she could drink us all under the dashboard

chascates November 19, 2009 at 2:06 pm

Maybe it’s Car Insurance Reform we need to be talking about.

Oldskool November 19, 2009 at 2:06 pm

In her defense, who shops sober this time of year.

pondscum November 19, 2009 at 2:07 pm

[re=462646]ph7[/re]: GAH! MY EYES! It’s a man, baby.

[re=462626]obfuscator[/re]: I remember Reagan doing that with Nancy; it is really, really creepy.

Mustang November 19, 2009 at 2:09 pm

They are deeply sorry that she had a fender bender. I can’t imagine what fake emotion they are saving for when something really tragic happens…deeperly mega uber sorry?

Click November 19, 2009 at 2:12 pm

“..taken to the county’s adult detention center where she was processed.”
Wow, that’s pretty harsh. How edible will she even be after that?

user-of-owls November 19, 2009 at 2:14 pm

[re=462654]pondscum[/re]: [re=462646]ph7[/re]: Well, that picture solves one mystery. Now we know what the little kid was holding to prompt Obama to react the way he did in the previous post.

chascates November 19, 2009 at 2:15 pm

Calling his wife Mrs. isn’t as bad as Bush’s “the lump in the bed next to me.”

I have actually had two vehicles totalled in the space of five weeks by drunks hitting them while parked. So at this point, I think the punishment should involve meat grinders.

user-of-owls November 19, 2009 at 2:25 pm

[re=462681]glamourdammerung[/re]: So ‘processed’ didn’t mean what I (and Click) originally thought it did?

Terry November 19, 2009 at 2:25 pm

[re=462681]glamourdammerung[/re]:

Cripes hanna. Who do you live near, one of the Bush twins?

Mahousu November 19, 2009 at 2:29 pm

[re=462639]scotterl[/re]: Nah, stick with the first number. It’s probably closer.

glamourdammerung November 19, 2009 at 2:33 pm

[re=462689]Terry[/re]: [re=462686]user-of-owls[/re]: The high point was the second one as the chump blew .258, had feces running down his leg, and when the cops asked if he had pissed himself answered “I don’t know”. That almost made my new car being destroyed worth it in an odd way.

jmfleetwood November 19, 2009 at 2:38 pm

[re=462639]scotterl[/re]: A BAC of .0145 is way below the legal limit except in zero tolerance jurisdictions/situations. I would say .15 if she backed into a parked car; .25 or higher if she cold drove right into the back (or front) of a stationary vehicle.

Gorillionaire November 19, 2009 at 2:42 pm

[re=462626]obfuscator[/re]: In the South I hear them call their wives “Mama”, which seems even worse. Ewwwwwwww…

ph7 November 19, 2009 at 2:42 pm

Mrs. Lugar, I served Joan Kennedy, I poured several drinks for Joan Kennedy, Joan Kennedy could handle her liquor. Mrs. Lugar, you’re no Joan Kennedy.

Members of Congress and their families are never drunk! It’s obviously from an unforeseen reaction between all her medications, that her health insurance pays for!

Mr Blifil November 19, 2009 at 3:13 pm

This is clearly the right wing’s answer to the Biden motorcade.

Darkness November 19, 2009 at 3:15 pm

She’s a republican, so chemical addiction will bring only sympathy and well wishes.

Bless her heart.

MMS November 19, 2009 at 3:37 pm

Now, back in Indiana we call that a “whiskey bump.”

Berkeley Bear November 19, 2009 at 4:04 pm

[re=462597]Terry[/re]: From the rumors back in the Hoosier State, more like she has to ignore him having sex with others on a regular basis. She doesn’t have the equipment he likes.

momus November 19, 2009 at 4:09 pm

Shouldn’t that read, “or the unattended vehicle that struck her car.”?

smashtheduck November 19, 2009 at 4:48 pm

Ah the good ol’ days of waking up at the Fairfax County lock up. Hope she enjoyed her boiled egg as much as I did.

Bearbloke November 19, 2009 at 7:08 pm

[re=462652]Oldskool[/re]: Certainly not Mrs. Lugar, especially when she goes shopping for a necktie for her Dick…
