Mike Pence Has A Fever And The Only Prescription Is More Joe Arpaio
Hot Air ^ | May 2nd 2018 | ALLAHPUNDIT

Lotta agita over this on both sides of political media today, I think because Pence is still held to a slightly higher standard than Trump is. He spent most of his career as a dogmatic conservative and even endorsed Ted Cruz (verrrry reluctantly) over Trump before the Indiana primary in 2016. He gets the same benefit of the doubt from the politerati that Kellyanne Conway does: He and she are old hands in D.C. and therefore they’re supposed to “know better.” Trump calling a guy a champion of the rule of law who once referred to his own prison as a concentration camp is Trump being Trump. Pence doing it is empirical proof of how the Trumpist virus infects the brains of those in close contact with it.

I like Charlie Sykes’s takeaway: https://www.weeklystandard.com/charles-j-sykes/mike-pence-shoutout-to-joe-arpaio-was-shameless-and-disgraceful

Far from being a champion of the “rule of law,” Arpaio is a man who defied the law to violate constitutional rights. He was convicted of criminal contempt for violating a federal court order to stop detaining immigrants who had not broken the law. Indeed, his pardon by Trump last year was actually an insult to law enforcement. Good cops regard Arpaio as a clownish fraud who defames the profession. Far from being a martyr who was persecuted for “doing his job,” Arpaio is a caricature of law enforcement—living up to every stereotype of a lawless, brutal, racist cop, who ignored fundamental rights and reveled in calculated cruelty. Pre-Trump, one would like to think that Mike Pence would have known this and cared about it. None of this is a secret. Had Pence read National Review’s scathing piece from January , one hopes he might have hesitated. The magazine described the man whose presence “honored” Pence as a “limelight-seeking octogenarian petty criminal,"

I can recall AllahPundit before he wedged his head up his butt. He was pretty good. Now he is just effluent.

Hot Air is another Salem Media property, liberals masquerading as conservatives while pumping out anti-Trump propaganda just like Red State did. Hot Air needs the same kind of “correction” and it should come with an enema nozzle aimed at AllahPundit’s posterior region.

Pence is feeding Joe’s inflated ego to keep him in to help McSally. This is the same idiocy they were guilty of in Alabama. They obviously learned nothing. Joe cannot win statewide in AZ. If he wins the Primary we lose the seat to the Rats. Trump should be asking our good friend Joe stand down not helping Mitch again.

My own opinion is this is Pence doing his bit for the Bush League Republicans to derail Kelli Ward and get McSallycain elected as Amnesty Senator for AZ.
