    Richard Mourdock, Republican Senate candidate in Indiana. Watch:











    To paraphrase the '64 Johnson campaign:

    In your guts, you know they're nuts.

    I'm sure they'll mention that in therapy...

    I'm serious, what happened to their party? The GOP seems to be a breeding ground for extremism. And lately they've been obsessively talking about rape and abortion. Have they forgotten that the abortion issue has been decided by the Supreme Court 40 years ago? It will NEVER be illegal to get an abortion in this country, just give up.

    One candidate says if it's legitimate rape, the woman can't get pregnant, another one says if it's legitimate rape, she can get pregnant and it's all god's plan.

    These whackos need to get their bull **** stories straight.

    And the hits just keep coming....

    Someone please explain to me how any woman can vote for these people? From the top down they continue to show they have zero clue and zero respect for women.

    A-holes like this keep me from voting republican. I can't vote for their fiscal policies when nearly everything else they stand for is utter BS. Anti-science, evolution denial, anti-women, anti-equal rights, anti-gay, anti-minority, concealed weapons for everyone... I'm waiting for the day when they try denying the Holocaust and the moon landing.

    It could be considered a consistent religious viewpoint.

    If you believe that God intends for all things to transpire as they transpire, then God did intend for the women to get pregnant ... and to get raped for that matter.

    I would suggest that makes for a pretty messed-up God.

    But that doesn't seem to bother this guy.

    Maybe god is just playing an x rated version of The Sims with our lives. I always kinda feel like a Sim when I walk into a room and forget what I went in there for, I feel like someone had just deleted an action...

    More ammo against evangelical religion... The guy is scary looking too. I'm talking about what is going through that pea brain of his.

    BTW, when I click on the video it says "This video is private"...

    All men should be banned from discussing pregnancies, period.

    (If men could get pregnant there would be government-issued abortion kits.)

    This is just sheer idiocy. How in the hell do these people get near public office in this day and age? How can anyone with any shred of decency vote for douchebags like this?

    Admittedly there are probably many non-outspoken gop members who realize these fools are complete clowns but don't say anything to avoid hurting their own careers.

    Well, the lack of any of our conservative members speaking out on this speaks volumes. Silence = complicity as far as I'm concerned.

    I'm sure you're right.

    And isn't that a sad commentary on where the party is.

    Ah. That must have changed overnight. Can't imagine why. The Telegraph has it up instead.

    But it's not Richard Mourdock that has the problem, it seems. It's us, he claims:

    Come off it. He must think his voters are fools.

    Well if the Christian god exists he certainly would have intended it to happen. After all he knows all that is was and will be, he has ultimate and unlimited power.

    So if he hadn't intended it to happen it wouldn't have happened.

    Of course if you're a more moderate Christian than bla bla bla god is the good guy never mind these mentally disturbing paradoxes .

    Oops missed this, what he said.

    I agree with others that this should be the christian viewpoint. It does make sense in the context of the religion, The same religion a majority of Americans follow.

    You just don't hear anyone thanking god they were raped and have a baby on the way. Kind of inconsistent. You can bet this attitude would change if his wife was raped, but really that's the status quo for religion.

    Right on. Men should only discuss men things and women should only discuss women things.

    Is it a foregone conclusion that this ignoramus will win? Don't they allow women to vote in Indiana now?

    =====

    In any case, I admit that I was wrong. I have compared the Teapublican views to those of the 1830's. I realize now that I was off by 200-150 years. These folks are back in the 1600's. When Cotton Mather stalked the earth:

    It looks like Puritanism is making a comeback.
