WASHINGTON — It's important in politics to know your enemy — and your enemy's Twitter handle.

In the race for the U.S. Senate in Indiana, Republican Richard Mourdock's campaign has taken to Twitter to target his opponent, Rep. Joe Donnelly.

But, instead of tweeting attacks at @JoeforIndiana or @RepDonnelly, Mourdock's tweets have mentioned @JoeDonnelly—a protected account belonging to a man who has 21 followers and, apparently, no aspirations of seeking higher office.
A few recent examples:

And Mourdock isn't the only one targeting an innocent Twitter user who happens to be named Joe Donnelly:

Oh GOP/teabagger trolls, you make me ROFL.  But what doesn't make me ROFL is Dick "Eliminate the Department Of Education" Mourdock (R. Tea Party) has a shot at winning this seat after knocking out Dick Lugar in the primary, which Mourdock and the Tea Party get zero credit for.  Lugar took himself out when people found out he wasn't living in the very state he represented for 35 years.  Joe Donnelly, who has been endorsed by the AFL-CIO, has a real chance at winning this seat and if he wins, we can have up to 57 seats in the Senate.  No, he's not a progressive but he's good for the middle-class and for Hoosiers.  Mourdock is a Tea Party extremist so there's no question over who the good guy is in this race.  Tweet your support to the REAL Joe Donnelly here:

While you're at it, how about donating to this great Hoosier's campaign and lets stick it to the Tea Party:

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
