Meanwhile, on top of Richard Mourdock's comments about rape, and the fact that an ad for him by Mitt Romney is still running in Indiana, we've also got top Romney surrogate John Sununu's racist comments, Donald Trump's birtherism (and similar comments about Colin Powell as Sununu), etc. And no condemnation from Romney, let alone ditching these people, returning their money, etc. I mean, can you imagine if one of Barack Obama's top people said that the only reason Donald Trump's supporting Willard is that he's white? The right wing would (rightfully) go nuts, the media would turn it into a huge thing, etc. Imagine if a U.S. Senate candidate who Obama had cut an ad for said that he thought abortions were awesome, everyone should get one, or something outrageous like that? Again, the right wing and media would be (rightfully) outraged! Yet with Mourdock, Sununu and Trump? Meh. Yawn. Zzzzz. Another day in the "liberal media's" world of false equivalency, cowardice, and of course "It's ALWAYS OK If You're a Republican!"
