Remember during the impeachment fiasco, when a few Democrats who weren’t smoking pot outside school during civics class remembered the order of succession? And realized Mike Pence, not Hillary Clinton, would be taking over?
The fear they felt?
You could see why last night. Mike Pence mopped the floor with Harris.
Bad enough that “feminist” pols had to revert to calls for victorian deference, that’s how bad:
Mike Pence showed that talk radio background of his. He controlled the tempo, seized the initiative, and led Harris into more traps than the Road Runner vs. Wile E Coyote.
He got her to contradict herself on tax increases.
He made her deflect to “diversity” when the question of packing the court came up.
He got her to sweep her record as a prosecutor under a rug of bluster.
He reduced her to a smirking, hectoring blob.
How bad was it? Even NPR had to step in to do Harris’s deflecting for her:
One pundit called the Veep debate “the first debate of the 2024 campaign cycle”. Judging by tonight, Harris isn’t going to do any better this time around than in 2020.
