Stupid is as Stupid does. So close and commit political suicide. I'm Republican. Just can't understand just how unequically stupid a person can be and even be in a contest with people that barely rise above dumb. I know this could cost us the Senate. Sometimes it's better to just play on rather than have, even more, idiots occupy our hallowed halls.

if Murdock does win he will not be alone is the halls of stupidity. We tend to think that our elected officials are intelligent, thoughtful and informed. The reality is quite the opposite.

And yet, sadly, we continue to cede more power to them.

Maxine waters is just about the dumbest person I have ever seen. here in Connecticut Chris Murphy gives her a run for her money and will soon be elected to the senate (god help us all), as his opponent is equally stupid

The tight Indiana Senate race has taken a controversial turn in the last twenty-four hours, as Republican hopeful Richard Mourdock deals with fallout from his remarks about abortion in last night’s debate. It’s the same concept that got Todd Akin in trouble: the candidate’s stance on abortion in the case of rape or incest. Pro-life Mourdock does not support an exception in either case, and his word choice in so stating has him in hot water with Democrats and even some fellows on the Right.

Unlike Akin, however, Mourdock didn’t make an offensive or outrageous claim based on junk...
