Republican notion of bipartisanship: "Democrats coming to the Republican point of view"

That was the position of the new Republican nominee for the Senate from Indiana: Luke Johnson, Richard Mourdock: Bipartisanship Ought To Be Democrats Siding With The GOP Huffington Post 05/09/2012.

Indiana State Treasurer Richard Mourdock, who defeated long-time Sen. Richard Lugar in the Republican primary Tuesday, has a new twist on bipartisanship.

Reacting to a statement from Lugar slamming his embrace of an "unrelenting partisan mindset," Mourdock said, "I have a mindset that says bipartisanship ought to consist of Democrats coming to the Republican point of view," he said Wednesday on "Fox & Friends."
It's actually not "new". It's how the Republicans have been acting for a long time. But he states it more bluntly than they normally do.

No subject for immortal verse
That we who lived by honest dreams
Defend the bad against the worse."
