*  The idiocy of the Republicans is starting to make itself more apparent, even to low information voters.  Here are the pieces of evidence to clearly demonstrate the stupidity, arrogance, and pure sense of entitlement that the Republicans and their white male-dominated, anti-woman, anti-Medicare, anti-college student, and anti-middle class political party:

1.  If you Google "nude Republicans Sea of Galilee" today you'll find out what a few Republicans did--- Six Republicans swimming in the Sea of Galilee?


During a fact-finding congressional trip to the Holy Land last summer, Rep. Kevin Yoder (R-Kan.) took off his clothes and jumped into the sea, joining a number of members, their families and GOP staff during a night out in Israel, the sources told POLITICO. Other participants, including the daughter of another congressman, swam fully clothed, while some lawmakers partially disrobed. More than 20 people took part in the late-night dip in the sea, according to sources who were participants in the trip....

...These GOP sources confirmed the following freshmen lawmakers also went swimming that night: Rep. Steve Southerland (R-Fla.) and his daughter; Rep. Tom Reed (R-N.Y.) and his wife; Reps. Ben Quayle (R-Ariz.), Jeff Denham (R-Calif.) and Michael Grimm (R-N.Y.). Many of the lawmakers who ventured into the lake said they did so because of the religious significance of the waters. Others said they were simply cooling off after a long day. Several privately admitted that alcohol may have played a role in why some of those present decided to jump in....

2. Republican Rep. Todd Akin, a candidate for Senate for Missouri, showed his views.

Rep. Todd Akin, Missouri’s Republican Senate nominee, caused a public outcry Sunday when he told a local television station that “legitimate rape” rarely leads to pregnancy.

“First of all, from what I understand from doctors [pregnancy from rape] is really rare,” Akin, the Republican Senate nominee in Missouri, said. ”If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.”

Akin later issued an apology, saying he “misspoke” when he made an “off-the-cuff” remark. Empirical evidence suggests that he is indeed wrong: Research published in the Journal of American Obstetrics and Gynecology suggests over 30,000 pregnancies result from rape annually. “Rape-related pregnancy occurs with significant frequency,” the trio of researchers from the University of South Carolina concluded. “It is a cause of many unwanted pregnancies.”

A separate 2001 study – which used a sample of 405 rape victims between ages 12 and 45 – found that 6.4 percent became pregnant.....

Does Missouri want to send this ignoramus to the Senate?  I hope not.

3. Josh Mandel had this to say about Medicare and Social Security (from his Jobs Plan):

Save Medicare and Social Security
The inability of Washington politicians to control spending has threatened important programs like Medicare and Social Security....

Republican candidate, Josh Mandel, Ohio's absent Treasurer, is endorsed by the Club for Growth.  The Club for Growth supports "saving" Medicare or Medicare "reform" ---- View this LINK.  Anyone that says they want to reform or save Medicare means they want to hand out vouchers.
