Mitch McConnell standing by his man Mourdock on God’s rape pregnancies

Via The Courier-Journal, Sen. Mitch McConnell is choosing to fully endorse Richard Mourdock’s comments from last night’s Indiana senate debate on God intending pregnancies that result from rape:

“It’s incredibly irresponsible for anyone to take what Richard said about his views on life to demean his opposition to the detestable act of rape,” McConnell said.

“We’re at the end of an election season here and I understand each side is looking to make hay out of every comment, but sharing the view of millions of Americans that life begins at conception is Richard’s deeply held personal belief that shouldn’t be misconstrued by partisans to imply something it does not,” the senator said.

Misconstrued by partisans… of BOTH parties, such as Republican Mike Pence, the soon-to-be governor of Indiana.

Mitch obviously wants to be senate majority leader really badly. Let’s see how this works out for him.
