The more I think about Richard Mourdock's views, the more bizarre they seem (though he now claims they've been misinterpreted). If he believes that the biological consequences of rape are God's will, then wouldn't it also be God's will if the rape victim contracted HIV as a result? His God maybe; but not any god I would choose to worship.
The eminently sensible Robert Reich says that "A democracy needs at least two sane
political parties". With members like this, it's looking increasingly as if America is one sane party short of a democracy..
