I ain't getting on no helicopter with no crazy Mourdock.

FTA: On entitlements, both candidates praised the proposal by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI) to privatize Medicare. "I voted for the Ryan plan - one of 40 Republicans who did so, seven did not," said Lugar, also later referring to the plan as a "scholarly way" of laying out the budget choices ahead.

"The hell I don't! LISTEN KID! I've been hearing that crap ever since I was at UCLA. I'm out there busting my buns every night. Tell your old man to drag Walton and Lanier up and down the court for 48 minutes"

One does not just simply walk into Mourdock.

Mourdock said that he has been proud to call Indiana his home ever since he first moved there in 1973,

What? I've heard people say they're proud to live some place, but this is usually the place they were born and have lived in their entire lives. I've never heard anyone say they're proud to have moved some place. Maybe if you moved up from some dirt town all the way up to NYC and were able to cut it there then you could show some pride in your accomplishment, but a move to Darmstadt, IN doesn't strike me as a major accomplishment.

Am I thinking too much? Is this just pandering?

A budget that says it will save $X billion by cutting tax loopholes, but doesn't actually name a single loophole to cut is "scholarly"?

But don't you dare say they are trying to destroy Medicare! It'll still be called Medicare after all, so it won't have been destroyed!!!

Richard Mourdock sounds ever-so-vaguely similar to Roger Murdock?
Is that it, or is there something more to this?

Serious Black: Richard Mourdock has specifically said that he thinks there is too much bipartisanship in Congress and that he would purposely hold up progress on major national issues if his party did not have the majority. I will probably cry if he gets elected to the Senate.


But due to his divine alliance with Jesus H. Christ, no one in the great state of Indiania will give two farks if he brings Congress to a screaching halt (or whatever you call "worse than current").

Maybe I'm wrong, but it seems like around 50% of this freaking country is functionally retarded. I blame playground safety changes since most of these morons probably would have been killed in childhood.

Seriously, is this a boomer thing? I can't help but to wonder if when they start becoming to old to run (or too dead to vote) that sanity might start to set in.
