Conservative Hawk, George Will, says Pence Beats Trump as the “Worst Person in Government”

Donald Trump, with his feral cunning, knew. The oleaginous Mike Pence, with his talent for toadyism and appetite for obsequiousness, could, Trump knew, become America’s most repulsive public figure. And Pence, who has reached this pinnacle by dethroning his benefactor, is augmenting the public stock of useful knowledge. Because his is the authentic voice of today’s lickspittle Republican Party, he clarifies this year’s elections: Vote Republican to ratify groveling as governing.

“Trump is what he is, a floundering, inarticulate jumble of gnawing insecurities and not-at-all compensating vanities, which is pathetic,” Will stated at the end of his column. “Pence is what he has chosen to be, which is horrifying.”

Same topic we covered the other day. Made more eloquent by George Will’s native aristocratic bent. One of the few authentic Republicans left in a conservative movement dedicated to racism, sexism and profits before people.

    I’ve never much agreed with George Will’s political beliefs, but he does have a way with words!

  2. Mark 7:6 says:

    Vice President Mike Pence turned to the Bible when asked recently what he makes of a new critical biography that calls him as a “Christian supremacist.”
    “The Bible says count it all joy when you endure trials of many kinds,” Pence told the Christian Broadcasting Network in an interview excerpt released Friday. “Any time I’m criticized for my belief in Jesus Christ, I just breath a prayer of praise.”
    In “The Shadow President: The Truth About Mike Pence,” that came out this week, authors Michael D’Antonio and Peter Eisner cast Pence’s background – congressman, Indiana governor, Trump VP – in a harsh light, arguing that “the most successful Christian supremacist in American history” is already functioning as a “kind of replacement president” and is preparing to “fashion a nation more pleasing to his god and corporate sponsors.” (USAToday 8/31/18) https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2018/08/31/mike-pence-quotes-bible-response-being-called-christian-supremacist/1161092002/
