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:
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.
