"Stupid"

Contra Jindal, in American politics there is a substantial market for "stupid" -- one which the GOP has sought to corner. (I grant that they have not entirely succeeded.) Phrases like "food-stamp president" and "shut that whole thing down" don't come out of the ether. Richard Mourdock isn't an outlier. He is the logical extension of the notion that abortion is murder. You can't fix this by modulating your tone. The party exists where the people are
