Everybody knows who he is and what he's about. It doesn't mean he wasn't useful nor does it mean that he can't possibly "be" useful in some context in the future.

Mike Pence has been interesting to watch. He seems genuine in his religious beliefs but politics has stretched him sometimes too far. His failure to speak out on the January 6th event is a problem for me. I could make a list of what I don’t like about Mike but I do like this quote.


‘During the 2016 vice presidential debate, Pence said that his entire career in public service stems from a commitment to “live out” his religious beliefs, “however imperfectly.” ‘

Pence is who he is, but at least he didn't throw the country away when pressured by the strongest man in his party to do just that. If he had gone all in on this scheme, Trump might be in the Whitehouse today while cases fighting it slowly plod through republican courts.

Pence did a great service to this country - I'll never forget that. He's also a religious rightwinger - I'll never forget that either.

Having any good thoughts about Mike Pence is nothing but pure folly and fantasy.
Not to worry about here.

If Pence does not want an abortion, no one will force him to get one

I would suspect that the 9/11 terrorists would say something very close to this as well.

I find it hard to praise someone for not committing high treason.

Being 'not insane' really isn't a usual qualification for office. (Or at least it used to be)

He didn’t cave to Trump. Whether it was through some form of principle or just a gut instinct that such an outright theft of the election would ultimately be doomed to iridescent failure and he didn’t want his name and face to be number two on the most wanted list, that I am still undecided on.

As of July 16, 2022, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is now available by simply dialing 988. The previous number, 1-800-273-8255, will remain active.

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

Credit where credit is due seems fair.

It's not like he wasn't under considerable pressure, so for that and likely only that, he deserves some props.

It's heartening to see that some people recognize that.

Nobody's nominating him for sainthood or a medal, nobody (the nobody's we are concerned with) is saying he's a good guy.






I am that Masked Man.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

You're seeing how hard it is to rid ourselves of tRump when he's lost and election.

It could be impossible if he'd been declared the winner!

The irony is that if Pence wanted a nationwide abortion ban, he should have allowed the fake electors. But it’s super easy to spout rhetoric when issues aren’t actually yet on the table.

This. Exactly this.



It is what it is.
