Being absorbed into the Trump/Borg collective may have broken Mike Pence.

Courtesy of New York Magazine:

When the human mind experiences great trauma, it will sometimes lapse into comforting delusions as a maladaptive means of self-protection. This appears to be what Mike Pence's mind has done after six days as Donald Trump's running mate. 

In less than a week on the mogul's ticket, Pence has heard himself introduced to the song "You Can't Always Get What You Want," seen himself demeaned on national television, witnessed his party's convention derailed by an unfathomable plagiarism scandal, and had his RNC speech upstaged by a chaotic spectacle his campaign had every opportunity to avoid — all while having to continuously adapt himself to the whims of a volatile sociopath. 

It seems these pressures have proven too much for the Indiana governor to bear. On Thursday morning, a visibly psychotic Pence went on Fox & Friends and described a "Donald Trump" and "Republican National Convention" that only he can see.

"What I hear from Donald Trump is that we’re going to stand strongly with our allies," Pence said Thursday, eyes wide and shimmering with madness.

You know when you get right down to it the only VP Trump could have picked, who would have survived the experience, is Sarah Palin.

After all she has been living in crazy town for many years now.

Here is my favorite Trump/Pence moment so far.


Sooo many shades of awkward.

    Hopefully there will be another behind-the-scenes movie about this duo like the McCain/McCrazy one.

    Pence can never hope to achieve the level of publicity of Trump's 3rd wife. Pence was picked by the man that tweeted:

    Donald J. Trump ‏@realDonaldTrump Jul 20

    Good news is Melania's speech got more publicity than any in the history of politics especially if you believe that all press is good press!

    Kinda opposite from the Mccain/Palin debacle. Trump being the psychopath and Pence being the misogynist. Who'd have ever thought?

      Of the three potential VP candidates: Viksack, Kaine, Perez, I think Perez is the absolute best choice.

  9. They probably thought that Sixpence was a safer pick than Gingrich or Christie, since he was a relative unknown and they were all too well-known. I guess that evasive tactic didn't work. Or was it a strategy?

      Pence has Koch money.

      The Republicans need money and the Kochs needed an In.

      I'm sure a call and an offer was made. They took the offer and then told Donald if he agreed to Pence they'd make the rebellion go away. Which they did.

      Trump will explain how he had no choice to Christie, assure him he was his first pick and then offer him DOJ or Sect of State or the Supreme Court. That's why Christie sucked it up.

    Pence should walk away and do something else like lobby. This election is not to his advantage. See Trumps association with Putin. It will help him in the long run with conservatives.

    With Ailes skulking out of the door followed by a cloud of horseflies another pillar of the Right-wing crumbles. Murdoch has plenty of hate in his shriveled up black heart but he is aware that unlike before there will be libel suits now that FOX is on its knees.

      When the Left-wing do it, it's a prank that ends with a Keystone Kops chase.

      When the Right-wing do it, it's an act of aggression that always ends in a fistfight.

      They simply have no class and no clue.

      Of course, nothing of substance in Alex Jones's head. Did Bill force Lewinsky? How old was the poor thing? She knew he was married, and what does it have to do with Hillary? She's running, not her husband.

      Saw Cenk rip that fucking t-shirt out of jones's sweaty fat grip and called it "disgusting", which I appreciated as it WAS disgusting. JOnes started to lose that little glimmer in his mad eyes at that moment. He tried to keep his jokey smirk on his fat face, but he got scared when Cenk stood up to confront him. Ben manckewicz stood up and removed his sportscoat, thinking cenk was going to punch jones, and for a moment I think we ALL thought he was gonna do it.
      Funny as hell, alex trying not to look scared--he might lose all 5 of his viewers.

      A black therapist who was trying to calm an autistic man in the middle of the street says he was shot by police even though he had his hands in the air and repeatedly told them that no one was armed.

      This pissed me off to no end, especially the kid with autism, the cops were saying he's armed, and the man who got shot kept saying "it's a toy truck" over, and over, and over, and the cops still shot. BLN, and this kid seemed pretty advanced on the spectrum, he was trying desperately to calm himself down with the toy truck and seemed unaware of the peril he faced. Sue the cops, retrain and fire those who can't do their jobs.

    WOW. Here's an example of the convention being tone deaf. They just presented a video showing all female Trump employees who praised Trump and talked about how he supported them and saw talent in them that they themselves may not have realized was there, etc. Immediately following, the band started playing ACDC's "Shook Me All Night Long." Anyone who know the lyrics would say HUH?! A song about a woman's thighs and driving a guy mad so that he ejaculates, and she "makes a meal" of him all night long. Wow, what a song choice. I actually love ACDC, but this song was one of the worst possible choices for the convention.

    Trump hates women. He only likes to have sex with them. You can tell the way he physically relates to them. When he and Sarah stood on stage his demeanor barely acknowledged her existence. She came alive being in the limelight and tried to shine coyly like she use to before the estrogen left her body but there was no chemistry or magic. Trump is just like Roger Allies. An old man who uses women without a thought.

    If Pence had an even pea-sized brain he would run for the exit and get out of this insanity. Nope!! No matter what he does or does not do - this will follow him the rest of his life. May I say - JOHN McCAIN????

      I think Pence and so many other gop politicians are committing political suicide by endorsing Trump. Even though Cruz is despicable, he at least knows that Trump is toxic in addition to being mentally unstable.

    Pence is that guy in the left lane of a three lane highway with his turn signal on.
    OT Some brain damaged fool called for death to Hillary, was on tv praising Trump and calling it free speech, while those dang liberal fbi lapdogs investigate. Trump's leaked speech, ahem, is a demonizing fest against Hillary. Wonder how the two conventions will measure up? Hppppge plus is Sexy, blonde, long legged and daddy's little girl will get to introduce daddy warbucks orange cottoncandy hair. Wonder who she'll plagiarize from? Where's Waldo? Bristol Palin, my life so far??
