I often wonder why it is that Republicans enjoy the level of support they do. It’s a party of billionaires for millionaires who want to convince the middle class that it’s all the fault of the under class.
The bewildering gleeful ignorance alongside fanatical literal Christianity makes me vomit intellectually but watching Pence today helped explain why the Republicans manage to manipulate and deceive with such gasp inducing ease.
Pence has all the calm of an asylum patient pretending to be a Pilot on an imaginary plane. His tone, his crisp self assurance and his quietly spoken authority makes you believe for a second that he really is a Pilot guiding us through a rough patch of turbulence.
Then you remember he’s a patient in an asylum and there is no plane.
It’s his self assuredness that is the magical ingredient here, that and the fact he seems utterly delusional and living in an alternate reality.
I’m guessing you get a Pence perspective if all you watch is Fox News.
Every answer was a mix of half truths, fish hooks or downright total fabrications of the issues at hand, but he said it all with such authority that I’m guessing the easily swayed will flock to.
Kamala Harris was gasping at the audacity of Pence’s statements so much she could barely respond due to lack of oxygen.
The first Presidential debate was blighted by a Trump who refused to be controlled.
This debate was blighted by Pence having the uninterrupted time to say things that weren’t true in a voice that pretended it was.
This debate will help Republicans because Pence made them seem far less dangerous and feral than they really are.
