Premature congratulations

This is the funniest thing that happened all day. Creepy Indiana GOP Senate candidate Richard Mourdock cheered SCOTUS overturning Obamacare in a video obviously mistakenly posted to the internet today. Priceless prose:
“Well, we’ve had our brief moment of celebration, because the Supreme Court ruled that Obamacare is, in fact, unconstitutional. It’s what many of us argued all along," Mourdock begins. "But don’t sit back and think the fight is over because it isn’t. Barack Obama and Congressman Joe Donnelly are already putting Obamacare 2.0 together and they’re going to try and pass it once again. We cannot let that happen."
There's more but that's not the funny part. He actually made four different videos for every possible decision and they were all posted today. At once. And of course you know, SCOTUS didn't release the decision today. The campaign took them down once the word got out, but not before Josh at TPM captured all the videos for your viewing pleasure.

One can only imagine the conversation at Mourdock HQ this afternoon...
