Mitt Romney running as fast as humanly possible from Richard MourdockHIMSELF

I think that even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen.

Maybe God also intended to have a doctor shove a vacuum in the uterus and suck that little bastard back out...
 
2012-10-24 10:25:40 AM
It's clearly God's will that Romney looks like an idiot, just like Rape.
 
2012-10-24 10:32:23 AM
Also apparently God's will that Republican candidates continue saying monumentally stupid shiat.
 
2012-10-24 10:34:01 AM
I would love to see that: Mitt Romney running away from a horde of right-wing crazies like Graham Chapman in The Meaning of Life.
 
2012-10-24 10:35:19 AM
Either everything* is God's will (including abortions) or nothing is. Can't have it both ways.

*"everything" is understood to include, but not be limited to, the entirety of human behavior
 
2012-10-24 10:35:48 AM
Talibornagains are ludricrous farkwits. Rmoney has to court them to get elected. It would be nice to have a normal republican party but we don't

13 days to the elections. If I was the GOP, I would send a memo to all candidates to STFU about anything concerning abortion and / or rape. By now, their constituents already know where they stand on the matter(s).

"God creates life, and that was my point," Mourdock said in a statement.

Yeah, geez guys why are you so hard on this poor misconstrued gentleman? His point was you have to look at the bright side of rape. You know, your rape baby that God gave you. Life gives you lemons you make lemonade. It's just like Rick Santorum said:

"Well, you can make the argument that if she doesn't have this baby, if she kills her child, that that, too, could ruin her life... I believe and I think the right approach is to accept this horribly created - in the sense of rape - but nevertheless a gift in a very broken way, the gift of human life, and accept what God has given to you.

"As you know, we have to, in lots of different aspects of our life. We have horrible things happen. I can't think of anything more horrible. But, nevertheless, we have to make the best out of a bad situation."

Nothing like forcing a rape victim to give birth to her rape baby to make the best out of a bad situation.

So Romney supports Mourdock still even though he doesn't agree with the message that God approves of rape babies...
 
2012-10-24 10:38:41 AM
Doesn't matter what Mitt says or does. He is still going to be the next president. He could sacrifice a dozen babies to C'thulhu, live on national television, and he will still win.

I just hope, something good comes out of this, like making a good connection between him and Romney (and establish the connection between Akin and Ryan even more), and produce some quick ads and run them on battleground states.

Oh, and it should feature how Romney is trying having a Romnesia on that as well.

One of the thing that this does is takes away the so called liberal media's focus from Benghazi this Benghazi that (the attack was tragic and knowing Obama, he will get to the bottom of that, the stupid politics played by Romney on that to create some talking point is what we need to move away from) to war on women.

And that at a point, when there is not going to be time for damage control. If democrats cannot make this election all about war on women from here, that would be a defeat in itself.

Rape is indeed horrible, but he honestly can't think of anything more horrible? How about rape and dismemberment, for one? Executing a 13 year old embryo? Hiroshima? Betcha there were a lot of little embryos killed on that day. What is the basis for this fixation the Repubs have on women's privates?

Too bad that in his opinion "making the best out of a bad situation" apparently doesn't include the option of undergoing a perfectly legal medical procedure which would diminish the impact of "bad situation" more effectively than any alternative.

That's the flaw in collecting the single issue voters as the Republican party has done. People who only care about one thing (NO GAYS! or DON'T TAKE MAH GUNS! or NO TAXES EVER!) are prone to extremism.

The ideas of fiscal conservatism have merit, but when you wrap it in "God wanted you to be raped", you lose a lot of people. A lot.

And you should fear the ones you don't.

Yes. In my own calculation, I will probably not suffer financially from Romney win (actually probably profit from it). But, it boggles mind that people who will suffers the most are his ardent supporters. I know you cannot explain stupid, but even that should have limit.

Maybe if conservatives would also believe in assistance in the support of all these babies after birth as opposed to labeling the mothers as welfare queens, their religious compassion argument might carry a little more weight. Instead, these idiots are all about denying a choice to people based on an arrogant assumption that their god and religious values allow them to decided for others regardless of their values.

Then again, conservatives also seem pretty good about getting rid of those pesky children too later on so it seems they have a fall back when Special-Gift-From-God-Dealio doesn't work out so well.

Why do you say that? Obama's *ahead* in Ohio, and has been the whole time. (And no, Kerry was not, I don't think, ahead in Ohio going into election day).

I'd say that was the biggest reason why so many normally rational people are voting for Romney. That doesn't really explain all the bigots, racists, idiots and downright reprehensible candidates running for lesser offices under the GOP label, though. Were they always there, and these last 4 years they decided to admit their true feelings? Or did they get nominated because they were willing to accept an (R) behind their name if it meant getting rid of Democrat somewhere?

For example, my House Representative is being challenged by a Teabagger (R) who was arrested for spouse abuse, was divorced and for a time lived out of his car. He's a known religious zealot who even the NC Republican Party said was not fit for any elected office, yet when he ran for Congress in 2010 he brought in more private donations than any other candidate in his district. Where do these fanatics come from?

I wouldn't be concerned about this fellow, there has been an enormous uptick of concern trolling on almost every blog i read by new folks who claim to be Democrats and act all defeatist. it's a somewhat facile attempt to instill panic and it Reilly isn't working outside of Andrew Sullivan.

Both 538 and Sam Wang and the Princeton election consortium show Obama with a small and enlarging lead. Ohio is pretty much in the bag and Virginia is leaning Obama now. All the Romney campaign has left is trying to push the narrative that they have the "momentum," that may have taken up a few news cycles if it hadn't been for this clusterfark. Obama isn't there yet, but he is the odds on favorite, i started an intrade account solely to profit of of folks obvious attempts to manipulate the market.

Why do you say that? Obama's *ahead* in Ohio, and has been the whole time. (And no, Kerry was not, I don't think, ahead in Ohio going into election day).

Keep in mind, VA also has, in addition to Gary Johnson, Virgil Goode, of the ultra-right constitution party, on the ballot.


Obama's lead in OH is dwindling rapidly. VA will go back to the GOP. None of the candidates you listed will have enough to spoil Romney's victory there.

And this opinion is based off of what?


I wouldn't be concerned about this fellow, there has been an enormous uptick of concern trolling on almost every blog i read by new folks who claim to be Democrats and act all defeatist. it's a somewhat facile attempt to instill panic and it Reilly isn't working outside of Andrew Sullivan.

Both 538 and Sam Wang and the Princeton election consortium show Obama with a small and enlarging lead. Ohio is pretty much in the bag and Virginia is leaning Obama now. All the Romney campaign has left is trying to push the narrative that they have the "momentum," that may have taken up a few news cycles if it hadn't been for this clusterfark. Obama isn't there yet, but he is the odds on favorite, i started an intrade account solely to profit of of folks obvious attempts to manipulate the market.


I never claimed to be a Democrat. I disagree with your assessment regarding both OH and VA. Polling numbers in both places seem to indicate otherwise.

Jimmy, if you're going to go down this road, at least throw in "... so you might as well not vote" for good measure.

He's not black.

I'd say that was the biggest reason why so many normally rational people are voting for Romney. That doesn't really explain all the bigots, racists, idiots and downright reprehensible candidates running for lesser offices under the GOP label, though. Were they always there, and these last 4 years they decided to admit their true feelings? Or did they get nominated because they were willing to accept an (R) behind their name if it meant getting rid of Democrat somewhere?

For example, my House Representative is being challenged by a Teabagger (R) who was arrested for spouse abuse, was divorced and for a time lived out of his car. He's a known religious zealot who even the NC Republican Party said was not fit for any elected office, yet when he ran for Congress in 2010 he brought in more private donations than any other candidate in his district. Where do these fanatics come from?


I have just resigned myself to the fact that if Romney wins, it was not for a lack of trying to counter the falsehoods that have been perpetrated over the past 4 years and especially the last year. I know of many people who I considered rather well read, but have come to find that they simply get as far as a headline that fits their bubble then shut down. These same people will counter Obama claims with all the well worn lies that come from the usual sources, but when those are debunked in front of them, their eyes literally gloss over and they change the subject or get mad that their bubble is being burst.

So at this point, it is futile to try to enlighten a person who refuses to even consider a possibility. They will all vote for Romney, religious zealots, neoconservatives and other faux-conservatives because they were too complacent to ask even the simplest question. Not much can be done at this point except to vote and hope for the best. 

In a way, Romney is correct in backing off from interviews for the last couple of weeks. This election is already over - it is just a matter of counting the ballots at this point. No sense it wasting time when one's supporters are already in the pocket.

I would never encourage people to not vote. I would, however, encourage them to be prepared to start fighting to preserve what gains have been made in regards to LGBT equality, women's health, women's pay, etc. Because we are about to face at least 4 years of legislative and judicial effort to tear those gains apart.

And this opinion is based off of what?

Current polling gives FL to Romney as a virtual lock. CO is a dead heat, with Romney moving up. Same with OH and VA. GOP is going to take the White House, and more House seats. The only place with a decent firewall chance is the senate.


Very incorrect.

Current polling has Romney barely ahead in Florida.

Romney has never had the lead and has not gained any ground in Ohio in weeks.

Colorado and Virginia have just moved from "lean Romney" back to "tossup"; if anyone is moving in those states it's Obama.

Really? Show me a single credible poll where Romney has had a lead in Ohio. Even Rasmussen can only pretend there is a tie. You can disagree all you want, I have data, in fact I will take the most right leaning aggregator and show you:

http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2012/president/oh/ohio_romney _ vs_obama-1860.html

It gets worse when you have folks who are actually good at statistical analysis looking at those states like Nate Silver and Sam Wang (who correctly assessed the past two elections with a single electoral vote). Early voting already has obama smoking Romney in Iowa and Ohio and that is all he needs to win.

Rape is a gift from God

^This


THis is really quite sad...

God used to be such an up and up guy... if he was gonna knock a chick up...he came down as the Holy Insemenator and did the work himself... quality work...good seed too. I mean the last kid he spawned could levitate AND transfigure.

Seems like he's down on his luck having to resort to third rate hoodlums, perverted dads, teachers or coaches and hardore rapists to do the deed for him...

Think he's getting old? Do they make Viagra for deities? Maybe he's just down in his back....

It's good that he's letting the repulsicans know that he's using a stand in... otherwise we would have mistakenly sent these guys to prison... nay... death row... for doing god's holy work.

And lil missies like me who have totally missed out on what an honor it was to have these filthy, diseased, insane monsters wallowing around in our ladyparts.

He will still knew the redneck states (or red states, however you wanna word it), but electoral college is not going to be that simple. In that Obama still is the clear favorite.

Even though a slender lead, he is still ahead in Ohio (interestingly, not far from Indiana, so the this comment will hit closer to home). Romney cannot simply win without Ohio.

He'll take OH, VA, CO, and FL. I believe that's enough to give him the win. Obama is doomed, and we get to endure at least 4 years of a Reagan Retread. Yay.

and Goode is a native son who ran sucessfully as both a Dem and a Republican and is polling at about 10% locally 9% of which comes from Romney's totals when he is added to the polling questions

Honestly, should Romney win, I'll shrug my shoulders every time when the same people that voted for him start biatching about how much worse things are. If stupid people really want to vote against their best interests, I hope that the downfall of the country is accelerated so we can just start this shiat over correctly

Yes. In my own calculation, I will probably not suffer financially from Romney win (actually probably profit from it). But, it boggles mind that people who will suffers the most are his ardent supporters. I know you cannot explain stupid, but even that should have limit.

If Romney does win, my goal will be to come up with bumper stickers that will add insult to the injury of those morons. Had not come up with any good ideas yet. Got any?

I'm pretty much just waiting for a major GOP candidate to bust out and sing the song most often ommited from community theater versions of "the Fantasticks":

"

Rape!
R-a-a-a-pe!
Raa-aa-aa-pe!

A pretty rape!
A literary rape!

We've the obvious open schoolboy rape,
With little mandolins and perhaps a cape.
The rape by coach; it's little in request.
The rape by day, but the rape by night is best.

Just try to see it.
And you will soon agree, señors,
Why
Invite regret,
When you can get the sort of rape
You'll never ever forget.

You can get the rape emphatic.
You can get the rape polite.
You can get the rape with Indians:
A very charming sight.
You can get the rape on horseback;
They'll all say it's new and gay.
So you see the sort of rape
Depends on what you pay.
It depends on what you
Pay.

The kids will love it.
It depends on what you pay!
So why be stingy?
It depends on what you --

The spectacular rape,
With costumes ordered from the East.
Requires rehearsal
And takes a dozen men at least.
A couple of singers,
And a string quartet.
A major production.
Requires a set.

Sounds expensive!

Just try to see it.
And you will soon si,si señors,

The comic rape.
Perhaps it's just a trifle too unique.
Romantic rape:
Done while canoeing on a moonlit creek.
The gothic rape!
I play "Valkyrie" on a bass bassoon!
The drunken rape.
It's done completely in a cheap saloon.

The rape Venetian
Needs a blue lagoon.
The rape with moonlight
Or without a moon.
Moonlight is expensive but it's in demand.
The military rape:
It's done with drummer and a band.

You understand?
I understand.
It's very grand.
It's very grand.
It's done with drums and a great big brass band!
Yeah!
