This is Richard Mourdock. I guess he’s a reminder of that they’re out there and they mean it. Mitt Romeny and the Republican Party are tailoring their appeal to the bigots, the ignorant, the fearful and the dangerously stupid.

WASHINGTON -- Indiana GOP U.S. Senate candidate Richard Mourdock declared Tuesday night he opposes aborting pregnancies conceived in rape because "it is something that God intended to happen." Debating Rep. Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.) in their final Senate race showdown, a questioner asked them and Libertarian candidate Andrew Horning to explain their views on abortion. All three said they were anti-abortion. But Mourdock went further, putting himself in territory near Missouri GOP Senate candidate Rep. Todd Akin, the anti-abortion congressman who infamously asserted that women don't get pregnant from "legitimate rape." "The only exception I have to have an abortion is in the case of the life of the mother," said Mourdock, the Tea Party-backed state treasurer. "I struggled with it myself for a long time, but I came to realize life is that gift from God. I think that even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen." (Click here for more)

It's even worse. The republican official position is to outlaw abortion without exception. Romney has said he will sign a law that overturns Roe v Wade.

on a lighter note,just watched derren brown inducing a chap into believing he was in a `living dead` type apocalyps when stujr (15) said `huh,not the post apocalyptic dystopia I`D choose!"
"NO, i want the one in book of eli with gangs & guns & bikes"
"i`ve got some books you might like,bespite the title,they`re not westerns" at that point i think some dust went in my eye.

Stu, my son's been raving about the Derren Brown 'living dead' programme for much of the day. Upon your august recommendation, I'll go and take a look.
