Ohio Republican Senate nominee J.D. Vance may have become the next Richard Mourdock or Todd Akin.
Both of those “men” were also Republican Senate nominees in 2012. Mourdock was the nominee in Indiana and Akin was the one in Missouri.
Both men’s campaigns hemorrhaged when they made disgusting comments about pregnant women who were rape victims.
In a debate with soon-to-be Senator Joe Donnelly, Mourdock claimed that pregnant women who were victims of rape were that way because God intended them to be.
It is horrifying that Donnelly actually won 44 percent of the vote in that election.
Akin in Missouri made equally repulsive remarks in his losing campaign against Senator Claire McCaskill, saying that women who were legitimately raped rarely became pregnant.
What is puzzling is that there was actually 39 percent of voting-age Missourians who thought, despite his despicable comments, Akin deserved election to the Senate.
In a recording uncovered by Vice News, Vance, before he became the Republican Senate Nominee, stated at Pacifica Christian High School that women, for their children’s sick, should weather any abuse in a marriage in order to remain a whole family unit.
Blaming the proliferation of divorces in part on the sexual revolution, Mr. Vance relayed that:
“I think the Sexual Revolution pulled on the American Populace which is this idea that like well okay these marriages were well fundamentally you know, they were maybe been violent but certainly they were unhappy and so getting rid of them and making it easier for people to shift spouses like they changed their underwear, that’s going to make people happier in the long term and maybe it worked out for the moms and dads though I’m skeptical but it really didn’t work out for the kids of those marriages and I think that’s what all of us should be honest about is we’ve run this experiment in real-time and what we have is a lot of very, very real family dysfunction that’s making our kids unhappy.”
Donald Trump really knows how to pick them. He endorsed Vance in the Ohio Republican Primary.
I do not know about most readers but I would think children would be more unhappy being in a situation watching their mothers being abused constantly by their fathers.
This slob gives new meaning to believing in family values.
In what reality is staying in that setting preferable to separation from that volatile situation.
Suffice it to say, Mr. Vance’s Democratic opponent, Ohio House Representative Tim Ryan, already leading in fundraising, and some polls, quickly pounced on the Republican nominee’s remarks, posting:
JD Vance thinks parents should stay in violent marriages "for the sake of their kids." That's not just wrong, it's unbelievably dangerous. pic.twitter.com/aQnTGRCuNi

That sound you hear is Enemy of the People-Political Prince of Darkness Mitch McConnell crying that his dreams of regaining the Senate majority after the November elections taking a serious blow.
If history is a judge, J.D. Vance may have just won the Ohio Senate seat…for Tim Ryan.
Like Murdock and Akin before him, it is highly unlikely that a majority of voters will stomach sending a person who favors women being victims of continual domestic abuse and children having to watch in order to maintain the facade of a united family unit.
Ryan who is running a centrist campaign catered to appeal to Democrats, Independents, and like-minded Republicans (he has made a point of appearing on Fox News to convey his views) appears to be in a strong position heading to the November 8 elections and unlike Hilary Clinton, there is no electoral college that will take away a popular vote victory over a chauvinistic pig like Mr. Vance.
