who cares?
Thoughts?
Meaningless horse hockey?

I hope they ask Pence about "the gays" or evolution or how old the earth is. I'm betting he'll say "you'll have to ask DJT that"... a LOT.

Since HRC is fatally ill it MIGHT be important!

Sadly, and thanks *entirely* to the Onion (which covers 100% of what I know about Tim Kaine), I have such a hard time taking him seriously...

My wife asked me about Pence. I'll sum up my description thusly 'worse than Trump politically but less of an asshole'.

With DJT's infinite capacity for word fuckery. I'd hate to be him right now.

Trump has gotten so much press that people have overlooked the fact that Pence is genuinely a terrible candidate as well. He's not terribly bright, his approval ratings in Indiana are lousy, and he's got a long, long track record of stupidity that can be easily challenged in a debate (like, say, publishing articles in the 90s which suggested that employers should refuse to hire gay people).

Pence will dogmatically stick to his talking points and his fellow-travellers will say it's a win, but the simple truth is that in order to actually win, Pence has to convince people who aren't currently voting for the Trump ticket to vote Trump instead, and that's going to be a tall order for him. On account of he's really not terribly bright.

During the Economic Club of New York speech that Trump gave, Pence was there as well, and between Trump's speech and Trump's "fireside chat" the assembled high-muckety-mucks on the dais were served their uppity lunch. While everyone else stood solemnly & listened to the host transition from one segment to the next (this was when Trump insulted the teleprompter kid, if you read my previous RSP post on the topic) Pence sat down and immediately began chowing down hard on the meal. He had a look on his face that indicated he would rather be anywhere on planet Earth than there, and also, "I am fucking hungry now! You tools can stand on ceremony, I am tearing into this veal because fuck my life." It was funny and sad at the same time.

Apart from his appalling record on LGBT rights, abortion, and other social issues, Pence is on the record supporting big tobacco against claims that their product hurts people:

On the personality front it is interesting to see a role reversal. As The Onion lampoons Kaine has a pile of energy whe4eas Pence makes Gore look animated.

This year yes.

A good VP performance might undo some of the damage the main candidate can do. A bad performance will reinforce the idea that a given candidate is too dangerous to elect.

I'm Jon Snow when it comes to Pence and Kaine.

I have the slightest impression Kaine is more conservative than Clinton.

I did know Pence started his character with a "Hard Right Conservative" template and took the Disad "pro tobacco" for extra points.

I'm expecting a heck of a contest but at this stage I don't expect any particular winner or loser.

Pence clearly has a better grasp on everything from economics to foreign policy than Kaine, though Kaine has a couple of good points to make on defending Obamacare.

Time waster wise I expect Kaine to try to needle Pence into wasting time defending Trump on all kinds of things real and imaginary, and I expect Pence to continue asking Kaine about Hillary's economic fantasies. I really hope neither does this; I want to judge how well each can handle the job of being President, I don't want to hear them try to speak for somebody else.

Sure do love this election! Absolutely seat-of-the-pants....what a remarkable place for our Republic to be!

Perhaps as far as what will Trump do next, but this has been the most stable election polling wise in history.

The most I know about Pence is when my Aunt from Indiana told me she hoped he gets chosen for VP, just so he has to quit being Governor.(apparently, in Indiana you can't run and stay in Office)

Around 7 PM EDT, two hours before the debate starts, the Republican Party already had their victory announcement live on the web.
https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2016/10/04/th...

Oops.

My favorite is "5 Questions Tim Kaine Wasn't Asked"... probably because the answer is - because the debate hasn't started yet?

Also - expect to see a lot from Pence on The Economy and Clinton Scandals. Wonder what Kaine is preparing for now?

LOL

On the plus side, now no one has to watch the debate to see the outcome. Lord knows, I'm not LOL.
