You're On Your Own, Mr. Mourdock
I'm not even going to try to defend it. If our Republican candidates want to make absurd, thoughtless comments affording no exceptions in cases of rape and incest, then they can fend for themselves in defending their asinine statements. In what was otherwise an excellent performance in tonight's debate, Richard Mourdock had to open up his mouth and say that a pregnancy that resulted from a rape was intended by God. Mourdock's post-debate statement hardly helps his cause. "God creates life, and that was my point," Mourdock stated. "God does not want rape, and by no means was I suggesting that He does. Rape is a horrible thing, and for anyone to twist my words otherwise is absurd and sick," stated Richard Mourdock. Nobody has to twist your words to find issue with what you said. Richard. Is all I have to say is that if your wife or daughter were raped and you expected her to carry that baby to full term, then you're just sick in my mind. I find the practice of abortion as a means of birth control abhorrent, but I find forced conception even more abhorrent. It's the economy, stupid. Why do you have to get sidetracked with these sideshows? Have you learned nothing over the past six months?
