The Yin and Yang and YEETing of Mike Pence

Andrew Donaldson

Born and raised in West Virginia, Andrew has since lived and traveled around the world several times over. Though frequently writing about politics out of a sense of duty and love of country, most of the time he would prefer discussions on history, culture, occasionally nerding on aviation, and his amateur foodie tendencies. He can usually be found misspelling/misusing words on Twitter @four4thefire and his food writing website Yonder and Home. Andrew is the host of Heard Tell podcast.

    I’ve never paid a lot of attention to Pence. He always struck me as a small-timer who had made his peace with not being bigger, even after getting the VP nod. I don’t remember him doing anything in the Trump years that struck me as objectionable. He represented a brand of conservative Christian who knew that it wasn’t a sin to vote for a sinner. I never voted for Trump, but I’m glad he was president during covid, and although I’d rate him an F, that still puts him in the middle of the pack among the presidents of my adulthood.Report

      In 2016, Pence was the incumbent governor of Indiana and was almost certainly going to lose either the primary or the general. Then Trump offered him a long shot at the Presidency. He’d have been foolish not to take it. In hindsight, he came within Trump’s Covid case being just a bit worse of the bet paying off.Report

    On January 6, 2021, Mike Pence briefly experimented with being a vertebrate. Now he is experimenting with self-awareness. Such is the soft bigotry of low expectations.Report
