Cliff notes

The Muncie Star-Press editorial page is mighty pleased that that nasty extremist, Tea Party partisan Richard Mourdock lost by 6 percent to that paragon of moderate virtue Joe Donnelly:

We're sorry, too, Evan

Thank you, Evan Bayh, and good riddance:

One of the tragedies of the Obama Administration is the historic political accident that it had 60 Senate Democratic votes in 2009. The ability to break a filibuster without Republican votes empowered the left to think it could pass anything, and so it steamrolled ahead with ObamaCare, which needed every one of those 60 votes to pass.


From a thoroughly depressing analysis by The Associated Press:

Richard Mourdock became one of the tea party's biggest winners of the 2012 primary season when he knocked off veteran Indiana Sen. Richard Lugar in a brutal campaign built on his contention that Lugar was too old, too out of touch and too friendly with Democrats – a RINO, Republican in name only.

Et tu, Dick?

I thought Richard Mourdock was different. I believed his promise of an unfliching commitment to conservative principles. Insofar as this indicates a deviation from that promise, it is very disappointing.

Game changer

That darn Richard Mourdock. He just won't play the game the way he's supposed to:

Practical Joe

But, you see, Joe, that's exactly the problem:

Rep. Joe Donnelly's (D-Ind.) latest ad portrays him as a bipartisan pragmatist while poking fun at his opponent, Indiana state Treasurer Richard Mourdock (R), for his uncompromisingly conservative views.

Ready for anything

Dumb, dumb, dumb:

Whatever decision the Supreme Court makes this week on the health care law, Republican Senate candidate Richard Mourdock of Indiana was certainly prepared with a response.

Four different videos were prematurely uploaded last week to YouTube, each one featuring Mourdock's official reaction to a slate of potential outcomes in the health care ruling.
