THE link in the red box is to the website of the Indiana Secretary of State where returns are posted for the Republican primary election being held on 04 May 2010. Mark Souder, the incumbent, is being challenged by Gregory (Greg) Dickman, Phillip J. (Phil) Troyer, and Bob Thomas.
We don’t yet know if the results will be dynamically updated. Even if you keep the race results open in a separate browser tab, you may need to refresh it from time to time to stay up-to-date.
The website of the Indiana Secretary of State’s Elections Division has a place where all election returns are posted. Go here Indiana Primary Election, May 4, 2010 to begin your search if you’re interested in other election contests.
We last wrote about Souder’s campaign here: Mark Souder, Creationist: Election 04 May. That post didn’t generate much attention, but your Curmudgeon cares about this one.
The competition for “Biggest Idiot in Congress” is ferocious. Every galaxy-class fool in the US seems to be there, fighting for the title. But Souder easily stands out from the rest as being especially idiotic. He won our Buffoon Award for saying: “I personally believe that there is no issue more important to our society than intelligent design.” See: Buffoon Award Winner — Mark Souder, Creationist Congressman.
There are no election results available yet, but we wanted to post early so you’d have a place to check for news.
In closing, we once again paraphrase Cato the Elder’s famous postscript, which he added to all his speeches in the Roman senate before the Third Punic War: Souder delenda est. Souder must be defeated!
