Was Mourdock's Loss in Indiana "Something That God Intended"?
Indiana Republicans paid a high price this evening for choosing Tea Party nut-job Richard Mourdock over the incumbent Senator Richard Lugar in last spring's primary election. Lugar almost certainly would have won a seventh term in the Senate over Democratic challenger Joe Donnelly. Mourdock was several steps too far to the right, even for Hoosiers. Might Mourdock have won if he hadn't spouted theological nonsense at the final debate? God only knows.
