The link to Roll Call is taking too long to get to. Drudge must have crashed it.

From that photo it looks like Omarosa really let herself go.

Lem said...

It kind of make sense to pick Pence over Newt.

Newt's baggage would only be toped by Trump himself.

Lem said...

"A low-key man largely defined in public life by his Christian faith, Mr. Pence, 57, is seen as a cautious choice of running mate — a political partner who is unlikely to embarrass Mr. Trump, and who may help him shore up support among conservative voters still wary of his candidacy."

bagoh20 said...

Good choice, but an angry black transgender woman would have really helped shore up the influential constituencies that now control the narratives and laws of the country.

I, for one, welcome our new dysfunctional overlords.

"JUST IN: Pence's tweet attacking Trump's Muslim ban resurfaces amid VP news"

Trump was not serious about the Muslim ban.

"You get the feeling Trump would prefer not to have a vice president at all."

Titus said...

Great, lots of God talk coming soon.

Pence believes in gay conversion therapy-perfect republican choice.

AprilApple said...

oh no! and I'm sure Pence is gonna force that on you, Titus.
Just like GWB ushered in theocracy and banned abortion. oh wait.


Pence is allowed to believe whatever he wants. His personal beliefs will never impact you, Titus. Never. But that won't stop the fear mongers from fainting.

Evi L. Bloggerlady said...

If only Trump picked Titus, the it would be talk of tits, rare Clumbers, and fabulousness all the time. Plus think of what Titus and Milo could dish about.

Lem said...

Reputation as a reformer... Values voters straw poll choice.

Rabel said...

Pence looks like a Hollywood version of a president. That's probably more important than anything else.

edutcher said...

As I said, George Bush to Trump's Reagan. The party fathers breathe a sigh of relief.

I'm sure they were expecting Ann Coulter.

Well, SecDef Sessions, here we come.

AprilApple said...

Smart, smart, smart.

AprilApple said...

I asked you to bugger off, you obsessive troll. Bugger the f*ck off.

edutcher said...

I disagreed. You're allowed to disagree.

I wasn't nasty, used no improper language, didn't point out any embarrassing facts, and said nothing about the presumably now-defunct NeverTrumpers.

BTW, Pence is probably the final nail in their collective coffin.

PS If it makes you feel better, Sessions or Flynn would have made me much happier, but I do see his thinking.

And now nd can vote for Trump.

Good catch. Maybe the real reason for the pick.

Truly. Remember all panic about how youthful Pissy was?

Imagine the contrast with Fauxcahontas.

edutcher said...

FWIW Breitbart is saying the Trump campaign says it's still mulling.

Oh, joy, it may yet be Little Marco or the One True Ted.

edutcher said...

Pence says he's it.

Looks like one of the press guys missed the word.

If this is the worst thing that happens to this campaign in the next 4 months, we should be OK.

PS Pissy is sending a rep to Alton Sterling's funeral.

Lem said...

JUST IN: Trump Jr... Down to 3. Any reports otherwise are unfounded. No Pence. No Pence. No Pence. No Pence!

edutcher said...

If you look at my link, you'll find Breitbart updated the story.

Apparently, Drudge got it from Roll Call who got it from "an anonymous Republican source", so the party screwed up. Maybe the NeverTrumpers are having one last go at a little skullduggery.

Trump has told Mike Savage he has yet to give the nod.

AprilApple said...

Drudge is such a putz.

AprilApple said...

Drudge is a blind faith-er. My opinion of blind fiath-ers? not much. At least he didn't link to the National Enquirer that one time.

AprilApple said...

Drudge still has Pence up.

edutcher said...

What's wrong with blind faith?

In the end, we all go with it a million times a day. And Drudge is far more often right than wrong.

In any case, all the nets are still going with Pence; some are hedging their language, but they still say Pence.

AprilApple said...

Drudge is a blind faith-er. My opinion of blind fiath-ers? not much. At least he didn't link to the National Enquirer that one time.

What he had was at least as devastating.

AprilApple said...

Blind faith is for losers.

Methadras said...

Not a bad choice overall, but still now the branding must begin and quickly.

edutcher said...

Yeah, Thomas Aquinas, Augustine, Saul of Tarses, John Paul II, all losers.

Meth, I don't think it's that big a panic. The branding begins, to be sure, but, if you look, the trump campaign is being branded for all the world to see. Pissy is hosting BlackLives thugs and sending someone to Alton Sterling's funeral.

The Hildabeast made a big show of laying a wreath at a police memorial after telling white people it's all their fault while we're told Cleveland cops have gotten the stand down order for the convention.

That's branding enough.

AprilApple said...

I'm not talking about religious faith, you moron.

ndspinelli said...

Don't forget Trump is a reality TV guy. Reality TV caters to high school dropouts and wannabe's. And, its life blood is manufactured drama. So, it might still be someone else. However, if it's not Pence I bet it's also not Newt. Maybe that's just wishful thinking because I so don't want to waste my vote. If it's not Pence it will probably be someone off the radar. The reality TV people will eat it up!

Too bad Monty Hall isn't still alive. He could do a "Who's behind door number 2" tomorrow to announce the VP pick.

Third Coast said...

Pence is pretty much in line with Trump on the immigration issue.

AprilApple said...

It's Pence.

So boring.

edutcher said...

You want Little Marco and his foam parties or (someone) and his 8 girlfriends?

I have a feeling the Hildabeast is getting more excitment than she wants.

Good theory, but keep in mind this came from the RNC via Roll Call, so I have to doubt Trump is trying to gin up something. He wants it smooth.

You're right on Newt, though.

wittle eddie wants Hillary to win.

AprilApple said...

Ed ache - the loser. The sad fraud. The joke of a man. the idiot who won't leave the internet - ever.

Rhythm and Balls said...

I don't know anything about this guy. But by the looks of him, it's possible Drumpf might have a winning ticket. Hillary's strongest saleables are her iron lady Amazon feminist war hawk belligerence, which actually works well against Drumpf's erratic insomniac mean girl tweets. But if you pick a traditional, steady, blow-dried Republican like the impeccably coifed gray-hair in the photo, then that's the type of personality that's seen as righting Drumpf's ship and actually providing formidable competition against Hillary.

But what the fuck do I know. I'm not Baghdad ed or anything.

AprilApple said...

Rubio ahead by double digits in Florida.

or, as they say, wittle Eddie - eat shit.

AprilApple said...

OT: The syndicated version of Big Bang Theory - they keep re-running and re-running the episode where Penny wears a Hillary T-shirt. Oh lookie- it's on again.

Hollywood and the networks conspire to give Hillary free pop-culture advertising.

edutcher said...

AprilApple said...

Rubio ahead by double digits in Florida.

Too bad you rely on NeverTrumper blogs for your info. The Q-pac poll only lists 2 Democrats and you didn't take time to notice there 5 Democrats, so Little Marco may not be doing so well against the others.

And it may not even be Little Marco. He still has 4 Republicans to beat.

If you looked, you'd know the primary isn't until August 30.

Wait until it's one-on-one.

You really don't know anything, do you, and you have to cover it with your foul mouth.

So eat it yourself, you live in it.

Rhythm and Balls said...

Geez ed. How did you get to be such a decent and civilized guy?

Don't tell me... was it years of incest, neglect and beatings?

Which wild animals raised you? You don't even have to tell me the actual species.

AprilApple said...

oh noez! It's not pro Trumpy enough for wittle eddie.

AprilApple said...

Wittle eddie would prefer a democrat beat Rubio. Isn't that wonderful? He's so swell.

edutcher said...

Go back to your gated community where the mendicants wait outside the electrified fence and look in your full-length mirror and tell yourself how you're too, too sophisticated for all us peons.

edutcher said...

Rubio was going to retire from the Senate and run for governor so he could one day dream of being President, but he couldn't find any donors (smart people).

I'd heard he was going to try for re-election, but it looks like a lot of other people figure they can beat him.

Wait for the primary, sweets, before you wet your drawers.

Rhythm and Balls said...

I don't live in a gated community, King Stupid. It just looks that way as you peer out at everyone from your insane asylum.

edutcher said...

I wasn't aware asylums gave the inmates Internet access.

Another of your aristocratic Lefty fantasies?

Rhythm and Balls said...

What are you saying? That right-wing guys like you are much more intimately familiar with what goes on inside insane asylums?

I defer to your expertise on that, ed.

I'm done letting you get away with acting like a complete asshole. Let Trump be the jerk that you want to be. He does a better job of it than you do.

edutcher said...

No, bad acting is your thing, as is, I suspect, the familiarity with conditions inside asylums, and then insulting people when they make you face up to what you are.

Go back to the compound where they think you're witty.

Rhythm and Balls said...

You first.

Show of hands: Anyone here think that ed is witty?

Let's see how this poll plays out, Chief.

ed - sometimes the honorable thing is admitting when you've lost.

AprilApple said...

*sits on hands*

Rhythm and Balls said...

;-D

edutcher said...

I'm not the one who wants everyone to think he's witty, I'm just the one who pokes holes in your nonsense.

And nobody will know about FL until at least August 30, or didn't you understand there's a primary Little Marco has to get past?

BTW, you two were made for each other.

Truly.

Rhythm and Balls said...

Just because I value not saying stupid things, doesn't mean I "want everyone to think I'm witty."

You sure do like to poke holes. Your own ideas are filled with them.


AprilApple said...

Ed pokes holes with straw. Not very effective, I'm afraid.
