"Pence is running around the country making speeches in front of small audiences as if he has a snowball's chance in hell of winning a national election again when the sad fact is that he is a man without a constituency," writes Heather Digby Parton.
Of course we Hoosiers know that. He grabbed at the vice-president lifeline when he figured out there was no way he'd be re-elected governor in Indiana.
" Mike Pence is a walking piece of Wonderbread toast."
'"Issues" as we previously understood them no longer exist in the Republican Party. Trump's "dark tone and feedback-loop quality" are the issues. It's all about grievance, anger and resentment served up with the juvenile derision and mockery that only a true demagogue can deliver. A bowl of lukewarm water like Mike Pence simply can't serve that no matter how many dramatic pauses he takes in his speeches,' Parton writes.
Pence is "forlornly trying to salvage a political career based entirely on his fervent devotion to the man whom the only people who would vote for him believe he betrayed. Sad isn't the right word to describe it. It's pathetic."
