It's official Donald Trump chooses Indiana Governor, and homeopathic insomnia cure, Mike Pence to be his running mate.

That's right Peter Graves stand in and renowned cigarette truther (Smoking doesn't kill dammit!) Mike Pence has beaten out the hordes of disinterested people named by know nothing media types for the job of Trump knob polisher extraordinaire.

Which, accordion to their new logo, may not be an actual exaggeration.

Is anybody else having trouble NOT imagining that P sliding up and down on the T's appendage?

Now Pence faces a dystopic future of crushing defeat and failed political dreams accompanied by a soundtrack of mocking laughter provided by the progressive voters.

Somewhere in the shadows Chris Christie and Newt Gingrich are raising a glass to the gods of dodged bullets.

Update: So I'm not the only one.
Good to know. I thought there might be something wrong with me.

      So this is how it feels to be betrayed.
      Pence, not Palin.
      Establishment politics, establishment VP choice, establishment gloaters!
      @*&^$%- #FU-$&&*@. There, I feel a wee bit better now.


      We went to the library to return some books and while there I suffered an episode. Very embarrasing.
      K drove us home and tucked me into bed hooked up to all of my whistles and bells. She took my vital signs, called my cardiologist, gave him my readings, and he said 'okay', but if I worsened, to bring me in to the ER.

      I had a deep and dreamless sleep that lasted about 5 hours. I awoke feeling out of sorts and sluggish. Still do for that matter.

      And THEN I turned on the TV to see what went on in the world as I lay in a deep sleep.
      And discover that Trump chose f'n Pence! @^$$)*& -#FU-*&%)@ Damn it, cursing isn't helping!

      I dashed off an email to the schitt bird, describing it's ancestry, and recommended that it do things to itself that are totally and completely impossible. So far, it has declined to reply to me. Maybe it is reading here?

      K is at present taking my vitals again while I attempt to type with one finger. Bet ya can't guess WHICH finger I'm using.
      Bp-160/90- not good
      Sats 94%- okay, just a tad low.

      But what troubles me the most isn't my health. It is the caving by Trump to establishment pressure. My emotional responce is to write someone elses name in.
      That is also a very STUPID response, because that means that Hillary Clinton will be the next president if people either stay home and not vote, or write someone elses name in.

      You know something? I am sick and tired of this "damned if ya do and damned if ya don't" style of politics!
      All that is left is to see if Palin is invited to speak at the big show. That will say more about Trump and the Repubs then anything else they can say or do.

      That's what you get when you don't read.

      This pretty much says it all:

      "It is too amazing to be true. Donald Trump charged Arthur Culvahouse, the same DC lawyer who vetted Sarah Palin, with vetting his VP choices.

      And Trump has ended up picking Sarah Palin, without the charisma.

      One source who used to work as a senior staff member in the House of Representatives told me, “Pence, smart? I used to eat salads at the Rayburn cafeteria that had more brains than Mike Pence.”"

      Cigarette Truther.

      Deer in the headlights.

      Has no idea if he believes in evolution or not.

      "Mike Pence who either didn’t read, or didn’t understand, that he signed a law that requires women to bury or cremate their periods, if they contain a fertilized egg, leading to the Periods for Pence movement."

      "Remember that religious freedom bill that Pence signed, but couldn’t explain? Upon finding out that it wasn’t at all popular, that everyone realized it could be used to discriminate against gays and lesbians, and coming under pressure from a nationwide boycott of Indiana as a result, Pence was forced to sign an amendment protecting the LGBT community, thus taking out the reason religious groups wanted the original law in the first place. The result ended up being the whole ordeal was an epic waste of time, that needlessly had Hoosiers at each others’ throats."

      "Pence, in his infinite wisdom, decided that banning needle exchanges would curb drug use, despite evidence to the contrary. What happened, because of inept Mike Pence? Oh nothing, just an explosion of HIV in the state. So much so that Pence was forced to sign needle exchanges back into law."

      Now I think this might be the one that sold The Donald. It's so Putinesque.

      "Mike Pence also once decided to start spending resources to develop a state-controlled news service, which would feed the media with prewritten stories, and be the one to break “news” (read: “propaganda”) about his administration. When confronted with the fact that it was, well, kind of Soviet, Pence decided to stop developing the news service."

      Pence is so popular that a Democrat, John Gregg, who has been out of politics for 14 years, is close to beating him in his re-election bid for governor of Indiana.

      “Indiana GOP to Trump: Take Mike Pence, Please!”

    Donald Trump Trashes His Own VP As Report Leaks That Trump Tried To Dump Mike Pence

    1. Anonymous4:19 PM

      It's Friday, July 15th. The deadline for Pence to file for re-election as Governor of Indiana.

      Here is how I think it's going to play out.

      Trump will NOT have a running mate he doesn't like. The man is a psychopathic narcissist used to getting his way in all things. If he doesn't like Pence he will not tolerate Pence being forced on him.

      So I think Pence is going to decline by the end of today and file his papers in Indiana.

      Then Donald will be free to chose another VP.

      Will it be Christie? Maybe. I still think that while Christie might be Donald's first choice, that Donald might be Christie's last choice and he may not say yes.

      Leaving Newt.

      And Sarah of course.

    Mike Pence: A Conservative Proudly Out of Sync With His Times

    ...In interviews, Mr. Pence describes himself as “a Christian, a conservative and a Republican, in that order.”

    Those animating forces were at the center of the most consequential – and controversial – decision Mr. Pence made as governor: signing a 2015 law that could have made it easier for religious conservatives to refuse service to gay couples just as same-sex marriage was spreading across the country.

    The national firestorm generated by the law was so fierce that sports leagues, trade groups and technology companies threatened to boycott Mr. Pence’s state, forcing him to revise the law in a compromise that infuriated both sides of the debate.

      I don't think the leaks would box him in. I think TPTB at the RNC boxed him in. They basically told him you take Mike Pence or we'll see to it you are NOT the nominee.

      Trump's behavior has all of the earmarks of being forced into something he does not want. Plus, supposedly Christie was his first choice. If he asked, would Christie really say no? After all that groveling?

    What if Trump is Merely a Trojan Horse - and Pence is the Intended Candidate?

    Here’s a purely speculative and disturbing idea that a friend suggested today that I can’t put out of my head. Maybe Trump isn’t the candidate the GOP is really interested in backing. Maybe it’s really Pence. So Trump rallies up the angry base, but he is coy about whether he really wants to be president. He generates non-stop media hype, but he may not actually have an inclination to govern. He hosts a convention of circus barkers and show ponies, but it’s all smoke and mirrors. A diversion. A Trojan Horse.

    Maybe the plan is for Trump to win the nomination, and then step aside — “for personal reasons.” That way, he avoids the bother of learning how things work in the world, or negotiating with Congress, or engaging in diplomacy with other world leaders. He steps down, and suddenly he is in a great position to cash in on a million favors, which is where he always likes to be.

    Meanwhile Pence, the most extreme conservative on the GOP roster, so radical he could never have gotten traction as a fringe candidate in the GOP primary, becomes president. He picks up the uber-conservative platform the GOP is busily devising, and charges ahead.
