No matter what happens when the Supreme Court rules on the legislation Republicans refer to as “Obamacare,” Indiana Republican nominee for Senate Richard Mourdock will be ready.
Like some weird message from the fictional future found in a Lost DVD Easter Egg, here are the videos his campaign has prepared for potential outcome from the Supreme Court.
The videos were posted briefly to YouTube before the Mourdock campaign pulled them down. TPM captured them and reposts them below.
After the videos were taken down, a Mourdock campaign spokesperson released this statement to the media:
“Like the vast majority of Hoosiers, Richard hopes the Supreme Court strikes down ObamaCare, which our opponent Joe Donnelly dutifully supported. But as the Boy Scouts say, ‘be prepared.’”
Rep. Joe Donnelly’s (D) campaign said the YouTube faux pas said something deeper about their opponent.
“Richard Mourdock’s entire career has been about politics, not people,” Donnelly campaign manger Paul Tencher said in a statement. “His calculated and pre-staged video montage proves that TEA Party, partisan politics is what Richard Mourdock cares about.”
Here’s a mashup of all the videos:
