Mike Pence Presents New Vistas In Both Sides

“Calling Mike Pence…”

Former Vice President and current walking termite buffet Mike Pence (a dark goat in the 2024 Goat Rodeo) takes to the pages of the WaPo to present an incredible both-sides non-sequitur:

Jan. 6 was a power grab. So is busting the filibuster to nationalize elections.

Now that the anniversary of Jan. 6 has come and gone, some of us who lived through that tragic day in 2021 are getting a clearer picture of what was and is at stake. On Jan. 6, an angry mob ransacked the Capitol, largely to try to get Congress and me, as the president of the Senate, to use federal authority to overturn results of the presidential election that had been certified by all 50 states…

…now come President Biden and Senate Democrats with plans to use the memory of Jan. 6 to attempt another federal power grab over our state elections and drive a wedge further into our divided nation.

Their plan to end the filibuster to allow Democrats to pass a bill nationalizing our elections would offend the Founders’ intention that states conduct elections just as much as what some of our most ardent supporters would have had me do one year ago.

So you see, allowing people to vote is just as bad as storming the capitol. I’m amazed that the WaPo even allowed this to make it onto their pages.

    What a poltroon. By this logic, the Voting Rights Act of 1965 would also have made the founding fathers cry. One thing is clear about the founding fathers. Nazi’s and Nazi sympathizers would definitely have made them cry. Buckets.

      This is right up there with Aqua Buddha’s complaint that “contacting voters, helping them vote and trying to get them to vote for you by convincing them that your political goals will better their lives” is “stealing votes”…

      If the Founding Fathers were about when the 1965 VRA was passed, I’d expect no small number of them would have stood with Strom Thurmond, not LBJ.

      People who own other people as livestock are not good people. Period.

      They may do good things, and even appear heroic and upstanding, but human beings are not livestock to be bought and sold like cattle.

      The ancient Greeks…were not good people.

      The Romans…were not good people.

      The Founding Fathers who owned slaves…were not good people.

      Thomas Jefferson wrote soaring oratory; the Declaration of Independence is a inspiring document, but it was for wealthy white men only.

      Had our foundational sin been simply slavery, there would have been slaves of all colors.

      I firmly (and with good reason, and no small amount of evidence) believe this country’s foundational sin was, and remains white supremacy in aid of maintaining political power.

      That the slave trade was completely about African blacks proves that slavery was secondary to white supremacy.

    At least they finally admit it. If the people vote, Republicans lose. Maybe we could make that a National slogan or something?

    In the Bizarro World of the GOP, when the minority overrules the majority, it is not a power grab, but if the majority gets its way, that is a power grab.

    I wonder if the opinion piece by that good christian conservative would have been worded any differently if he’d at least acquired a rope-burn around his neck, to have first hand experience of being viewed as only three-fifths of a human. Probably not.
