    Big Sigh. Here I thought Indiana was going to be at the vanguard of a Tea Party renaissance...and we can't even get out of the starting blocks. You heard it. Mourdock stepped all over it in the Senatorial debate. He paused...reflected...then looked the Moderator in the eyes, cocked the pistol, aimed it at his own forehead - and calmly, with deliberation, said he thought it is God's will if a woman gets pregnant when raped.



    You know? Once...just one time, you know what I'd like to find? A true, hard-core, black-flag fiscal conservative - a "Government shutdown? Bring It On" type - who doesn't also have a creepy fundamentalist poison pill lurking deep inside him, waiting to come ripping out of his body like an Alien at the most inopportune moment (eg, the final debate 12 days before an election), and go tearing around the Tea Party Space Capsule, dispensing fundamentalist biology lessons in completely unprovoked fashion.


    Every time one of these fundie creeps answers the rape and incest exception question, here's the polished, honed response I hear coming out of his mouth in my mind: "Look, Bill, we know Abortion is a very divisive issue, one that tears our nation right to the core, and one that my opponent and I disagree on. I'm pro-life. He is not. You know what that means. The voters know what it means. Now we can sit here debating biology, but I don't think we're going to solve our economic problems going over that for the 47th time. I most likely will not be called on to decide this issue during my tenure in office, if I win. My opponent will not be called on to decide this issue during HIS tenure in office, if he wins. We've checked off our respective boxes on the application form, and our positions are public knowledge. Now - what about this ECONOMY that my opponent seems so eager to change the subject away from? Next question, please." (thunderous applause...moderator's privates shrivel up inside his torso and he sits there looking miniscule).


    That would be the "Big League" answer, the type of answer politicians like Mitt Romney give, when they're receiving a call-up to the Majors...you know, putting on the Big Boy Pants, taking the reins and running the country and all that.


    But instead, here's what we actually get: "Bill, when a woman gets raped, I think if she gets pregnant, it's God's will." (Translation, to undecided women voters: "And besides, she should have her ass in the kitchen baking apple pies, anyway").


    Well, I give up. I find it interesting that Mitt Romney can finesse this question - and he is a MORMON, for heaven's sake! You can take a guy who was raised in a culture where women were polygamist chattels, and teach him this kind of political street smarts - but Mourdock can't answer this question professionally, when he's had 6 months to prepare for it, and knew it was coming?


    Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?


    Let the record show, that if and when a Romney Tidal Wave sweeps across the amber waves of grain on election night, rocking the nation to its core and catching Obama off-guard like a Kenyan antelope standing next to an Alligator-infested watering hole - the great state of Indiana, the Crossroads of America, will NOT be one of the alligators taking part in the feeding frenzy. Because even as Romney wins this state by 15 points, we'll be sending a Democrat Senator to Washington, who got re-districted out of his House seat because he voted with Obama on EVERYthing. So now he gets to be Senator - simply for no other reason than 10 seconds of Fundamentalist Echo Chamber silliness from the mouth of the Tea Party candidate. Somebody tell Harry Reid that the Evan Bayh RINO Midwestern Moderate seat is about to be filled again - still by a Hoosier - but this time by one hailing from a little closer to Chicago.


    Cripes. If this is the Tea Party...if this is the sort of politician we're relying on to bring America back from the brink of financial collapse...then we all better start scoping out retirement havens in Costa Rica.

    I really believe, smart people don't run for office, unless they are corrupt.

    I know what you're talking about buzzy. The pro life people are going to vote Republican anyway, so there is no reason to bring the subject up. The reason they bring it up is for a "gottcha" question. I wish these guys would answer just as you suggested, or not answer at all. Just say abortion is 1 subject I don't talk about in debates, it just takes all the air out of the room.

    It was going to be close between Mourdock and DC Donelly anyway, and Mourdock just gave the moderates an excuse to split the ticket. You know those moderates they want to be fair, and say they vote for the person not the party. They will go through their ballot and punch Romney, then Pence, and now since Mourdock gave em an excuse, just to be fair they will vote for the Democrat Barack O'Donelly.

    Wouldn't it be a bite to have Romney win, Repubs maintain control of the House, and we lose the Senate because of Indiana??????????? If O'Donelly wins and votes the way "The Winnemucca Lounge Act" Harry Reid tells him (and why wouldn't he? Pelosi made his decisions in the House) and Obamacare is upheld, our last chance is gone.

    I still don't think it is going to matter, because Ohio is going to let us down and vote for Ojacka**. We're screwed, we've put our hopes in what the people of Cleveland do. Have they (Cleveland, Toledo) ever failed on under delivering?

    Who knows, maybe the weather will be bad that day and the Obamanites will stay in and play with their new phones.

    And back to the Hoosier State, maybe Mourdock can ride Romney's and Pence's coat tails. Yeah, that and Notre Dame wins the rest of the way out. We need a Hail Mary.

    Who knows I might see some of you election day, I'm scheduled to be passing out Mourdock literature outside voting centers that day.

    Hope you make it back alive!


    And yes, wouldn't that be a pisser, to miss the one vote that would take control of the Senate...all because Richard Mourdock spends his free hours inside a Fundamentalist Echo Chamber, and was unprepared for the one question that could end his campaign in 10 seconds.


    Geezus. At least Todd Akin got his stumble out of the way months before the election - not 12 days.

    If you think Mourdock is dumb for saying what he did, Those who cast a vote for O'Donelly and own a firearm MAKES Mourdock sound like a freaking genius in comparison!

    Vote the Constitution NOT a Party!

    I still don't think it is a slam dunk for Barack O'Donnelly. He'll probably win but with the right campaign like - Piss off the Lame Stream Media, vote Mourdock!

    Mourdock should run a commercial listing all the people endorsing DC Donnelly: Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Hillary Rodham, Sandra Fluke, Rachel Maddow, Gloria Alred, Ellen Degenerate, Snooki, Barbara Boxer, Barbara Strisend, Diane Feinstien, Moochelle Obama, Dick Durbin, Barney Frank, Maxine Waters, Up Chuckie Schumer .................................................................................................. All the glorious Northeasterns and far left CA's whom are so concerned about a senate race here in Indiana.

    Does CA or NY need a 3rd senator, and that is what they will get if they send DC Barack Nancy O'Donnelly to the senate.

    "Republicans, the party of stupid."

    How can you say that with Biden out there? ;-) See link.

    Well, I will say this: if you're going to have a Democrat in that seat, it's probably better to have a Democrat with low statewide name recognition. He will have to look over his shoulder constantly, since this is a Republican state and the Republicans (hopefully aided by the Paragon of Democracy, Citizens United) will put up money against him every time until they get him. And if he takes a position even a little out of the mainstream, they will get him.



    Contrast that with having a RINO like Dick Lugar in that seat, where he can take positions against his constituents with impunity (cf. his position on global warming and carbon taxation), and know that his name recognition, plus that little "R" next to his name (in a Republican state), guarantees him reelection in any general election he can get into.

    Yes, but we EXPECT the dumbocrats to be stupid. Why do the republicans always insist on wearing the dunce cap? I think maybe it just boils down to politicians aren't actually as intelligent as they are infatuated with their own image.

    Ever see a football team who's 4th and 1, deep in their own territory, and they go for it on 4th down? Everybody in the stadium KNOWS, they're just lining up to see if they can draw the defense offsides.


    When Moderators ask the question about an exception for rape, incest, and the life of the mother - and they ALWAYS ask that - that's what they're doing with the Fundamentalist candidate. And every, flipping, time, he jumps clear out of his jockstrap and flies across the line of scrimmage so blatantly, the stupid chick in the 347th row of the nosebleed section wearing pink sweatpants and messing with her iPhone notices it. You can see it coming. I can see it coming. The Tea Party dupe can't see it coming.


    Gawd. It's like wireguy said...these people really are THAT stupid.

    Hey 548 and the rest of you leftists, look here! You see what we conservatives are doing here? One of our own screwed up and we aren't defending him! In fact we are pointing out in no uncertain terms that this guy is a SCREW UP!

    THAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN YOU GUYS AND US! When our people screw up we DON'T DEFEND THEM! Can you grasp the concept? It's called honesty and accountability! You should try it some time. You might find it refreshing.

    I can't understand how things will be going along pretty well, and then suddenly a GOP candidate opens his mouth and starts talking about rape... I just don't get it.

    Yes! He screwed up when he spoke! Not his his brightest momment for sure! He never intended to say rape was a will of God, Only that the life it created was. Just as Joseph told his brothers what THEY meant as evil, God purposed for good, God oftn brings good out of the evil deeds of men! --Murdock proved that, when it come to speaking, that he sure isn't the sharpest tool in the shed, but, anybody who thinks that liberal idiots running against him is better needs professional help!!!!

    What slideaction said.

    Mourdock said something stupid.

    But DC Donnelly does stupid things. Voted for Obamacare, TARP, GM/Chrysler bailout, Billions to bankrupt green energy companies, Bail out Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, Big time supporter of EPA................

    So what is the solution? You guys going to sit this one out because Mourdock made an admitted stupid comment?

    Do we really want a Senator from Indiana whom is going to vote like Barbara Boxer, Feinstien, UpChuckie Schumner, little Dick Durbin, etal.. If we sit this one out then we will have Barack O'Donnelly voting with the above mentioned pack of socialist.

    Look at DC Donnelly's record in the House. The man didn't even go to the bathroom without first asking for permission from Nancy Pelosi.

    Sorry---Mr Murdock does NOT condone rape


    If you happen to belive in the Bible----Jesus said "MY FATHER KNEW YOU IN THE WOMB"
    Does that not say that LIFE begins at conception??---

    I belive also that there is a Commandment that says DONT COMMIT MURDER

    Our unhappiness isn't a result of his recognition that life is precious. It's a result of the stupid choice of words he used. These people purport to be tough, smart people who want to represent us. Then someone throws them a question that a child could recognize as a trap and they step right into the middle of it. Stupid, stupid, stupid.
