Still, the reports of his post-Richard Mourdock moments were less aglow. He dodged all questions from the media about how a man of his keen concern for at least half of America could still be supporting Mourdock with a TV ad in Indiana that suggests the Republican senatorial candidate will help him rid Capital Hill of Obama evil.

Mitt continually rambles about in the farthest reach of the oddball Republican right. As for Mourdock, the polls show him to be ahead of his Democratic opponent. Albert Camus was so perceptive when he wrote in The Plague:
"Supidity has a knack of getting its way; as we should see if we're not always so much wrapped up in ourselves."UPDATE: While wandering through the land of Nod, we came across this incredible assessment of Mourdock from Josh Mandel, the Republican candidate for senator: "He's a class act!" No, the Whiz Kid wasn't looking into the mirror this time.
