With friends like these...

By now you've heard about Richard Mourdock and his comments about abortion and rape, but for those who've just been awaking from a 24-hour slumber, here's the jist of what he said: at a debate in Indiana, Republican candidate Mourdock was asked his opinions on the issue of abortion, to which he basically said he was staunchly pro-life. If only he had left it at that....

Yeah, you heard that correctly: he said, and I quote: "The only exception I have to have an abortion is in the case is in the life of the mother. I struggled with it myself for a long time, but I came to realize that life is a gift from God. I think that even in the horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen."

What he basically just said was that if a woman is brutally forced upon another man and said result is an unwanted pregnancy, then that's just something God planned for the victim. Our God is a loving, caring sociopath, isn't he?

Of course, any sensible person within the GOP would distance themselves away from such a despicable comment, but this is the the GOP: they welcome back their chauvinistic pigs running for office (see: the party backing Todd Akin despite his comments on "legitimate rape" and not knowing a damn thing about a woman's reproductive system) . Today, members of the Right, from Senate Minority Leader McConnell to former Presidential candidate John McCain have stood behind their candidate to replace Dick Lugar's Senate seat. Enter Mark Noonan and the aslyum known as Blogs for praising what Mourdock said last night.
