Memo to Republicans: Stop Nominating Idiots for U.S. Senate

Between the last two elections, the Republicans should have picked up seats in Delaware, Nevada, and Missouri and held the one in Indiana.  They did not because of the nomination of poor candidates.  This year, the Missouri candidate melted down after making an idiotic comment about rape and pregnancy.  The Indiana candidate, after witnessing this meltdown, then made his own idiotic comment on the same subject, followed by a nonretraction, nonapology.

The result of this, pertinent to the topic of this blog, is that the Senate Judiciary Committee will remain in Democratic control, presided over by Patrick Leahy.  That is a huge loss for the cause of justice.  The people who supported these candidates in their primaries, against candidates who would have won the general election, have a lot to answer for.
