Articulate, maybe not seeing the “clean”. Pence’s unclean practice are all in pursuit of what he views as a “god given” mission that mainly amounts to a war on anybody he views as “sinful” with particular attention paid to women, gay men and trans people.
It’s honestly pretty hard not to, this is after all a man who’d rather cost his state’s economy at least 250 million dollars rather than be decent to gay people to the point where big businesses, not usually the most progressive or ethical actors themselves practically revolted.
That about sums it up yeah, but not just for US Democrats or well anybody not as zealous and to the left of Pence.
Problem is I kinda see your Dems winning the House (Bryce getting to replace Ryan would be the icing on the cake for me there, but the chances of that are sadly kind of slim) but I’m not seeing the Senate and the House on its own seems kind of impotent now that the tax plan has already passed.
Pence’s brand would be a particularly severe threat moreso than Trump’s or the “mainstream” Republican’s. As bad as the Trump administration has already been for gay people in the US Trump at least doesn’t believe he’s got a divine mandate that dictates he must dedicate every effort to make it worse.
