What has Mike Pence been up to?

He has done an extraordinary job of staying out of the media spotlight.

  1. Lance Armstrong rode past Pence the other day in Nantucket and tweeted about it, (Only to get backlash from the twitterverse. Lolz. Honestly I think it was more about running into the freaking vice president than really about passing him on the bike trail). I guess they were both vacationing.

    • A Midwestern prole like Mike Pence gets to stay in Nantucket. Lion’s analogy that one should strive for prestige and get away from other proles by heading off to non-prole areas.

      A biking and doping prole like Lance Armstrong comes into Nantucket to take a sh!t. Meriprolestan.

      Ok, what, who's this again?

      • All of these islands are sinister. Plum, Nantucket, Shelter, Fisher, Pedo, Blennerhassett, Chappaquiddick, Long, Fire, Terminal, Albion… The only one that seems decent is the biggest one, Greenland.

      • Staten Island?

      • Manitoulin Island in Lake Huron has lakes or ponds on it, which themselves have islands. Do those islands, in a receding infinity mirror fashion, have ponds/islands? Asking for a friend.

      • Well, there’s the island of Manhattan, which is better than Staten Island, by a gazillion miles. There is officially no source of organic food purveyor in the outer boroughs of NYC, and Staten Island would be a bastion of loserdom of greasy prole food and all around junk edibles from a White person’s perspective. There are about 10 Whole Foods markets in Manhattan, and only 2 of them are in Brooklyn, when it comes to the outer boroughs. This goes to show you the social inequality, educational attainment and income disparity between Manhattanites and residents of the outer boroughs. Although Staten Island is considered the wealthiest borough, it must be a low brow form of wealth or else a Whole Foods would have opened up eons ago.

      • “There is officially no source of organic food purveyor in the outer boroughs of NYC”

        You are totally wrong, there’s a Trader Joe’s in Staten Island.

      • I wouldn’t consider Trader Joe’s as an organic food market. Most of its items are non-organic, with only a small selection that is labeled as such. They claimed to sell non-GMO products, but they are also not labeled as non-GMO, unlike many of the items sold in Whole Foods.

    • I would bet my bottom dollar that Lance Armstrong is a closeted homosexual.

      • You don’t think if Armstrong was gay he’d have come out around 2011? Or around 2015 he’d become Lisa Armstrong and claim that the doping made his female self come out?

        When Bruce became Caitlin there was speculation that it was due to steroid use. I made a joke on Sailer’s blog that Cooperstown would soon induct Barbara Bonds and Regina Clemens.

    • Seems to me like he’s bragging about riding a bike faster than an older man who was never a professional athlete.

      • That reminds me of my favorite Chuck Norris Fact. Chuck Norris once challenged Lance Armstrong in a “Who has more testicles?” contest. Chuck Norris won by 5.

      • Good grief! Armstrong was attempting to do humor. Jock humor. You people…

      • Yeah I was gonna say the same thing but then it occurred to me that maybe Lion was attempting a little bit of deadpan ironic humor himself. Like of course Lance Armstrong knows there’s nothing brag worthy about him beating Mike Pence in a bike race. As you said, it’s ironic jock humor delivered with a straight face and exaggerated language. But Lance Armstrong is now a public persona non grata, so he’s not allowed to attempt to be funny in a public forum. Lol.

        No way. It’s SJW triumphalism. He smoked that evil, gay-hating Pence! In his face!

        C’mon, haven’t you learned to read this stuff yet?

      • Not so much jock humour as self-deprecating humour. A champion cyclist who was stripped of his olympic medals and tour de france titles for doping can still smoke a 60 year old man on a bike trail.

    • Can you imagine trump on a bike trail? He needs to lose weight and hit the gym. He kind of looks like a slob these days.

  3. Hopefully letting the Democrat candidates define their entire rationale as standing athwart Trump and then have Pence take over and then having a “Return to Sanity” campaign being a moot point.

  4. Probably off talking gay people into becoming straight one by one.

  5. It seems like he sticks to just the express powers of the job: casting the tie-breaking vote in the senate and keeping himself healthy in case the president dies. More politicians should learn from his example!

    • He also attends various ceremonial functions that aren’t important enough for Trump to attend. (And where Trump’s presence would be a distraction, anyway. Pence can attend a funeral or a charity event without attracting massive negative media attention.)

      • Often the vice president serves as an attack dog, even in administrations in which the president is combative with the press and the opposing party. However, Trump so revels in fighting the press and his opposition so much, he needs no attack dog.

  6. My hunch is Mike Pence will wait until Trump’s 2nd turn and then start running against Trump.

    Pence is super-ambitious. If he’s quiet for strategic reasons.

  7. While I’m personally not excited about Pence, he’ s too much of a conventional Republican for my tastes, his personal demeanor would make him an easy winner against most of today’s Dem candidates. Independents and apolitical normies would feel more comfortable with Pence over say a Kamala Harris. That same centrist group is offended by Trump’s personality more than his policies. Many will complain that 2020 is their worst choice ever…especially if the Dems nominate anyone other than Biden.

    • It depends on if he ran on a Trump-like agenda or his own. At this point in history, I don’t believe a regular Republican can win the Presidency.

  8. It’s amazing how obsessed the Left is with this innocuous man. AFAIK, he hasn’t said one word about homosexuality as VP, but that’s all they care about.
