Davy Jones cabin boy?
Took me two tries. Ah: Pence is being forced to walk the plank by the aptly costumed GOPists. But that ship has already… sunk.
“Everything Trump Touches Dies”……that goes for Pence and the GOP.
Don’t worry, Mike Penis always has Prosperity Jesus to come through for him… Oh, I forgot, Prosperity Jesus does not like losers.
Pence has been up to his eyebrows in everything Trump since the inauguration of Trump. I’d be quite happy to see him as Trump’s jail mate.
Thoughts and prayers again from Pence ?
Ding dong the Mitch is dead McConnell said he would start Trump’s impeachment trial on Jan 19, republicans suck.
I don’t think so. Pence is following the path of least resistance, as usual.
There is a possibility Pence could become the shortest serving president in history. (timewise)
Revenge Smee! Revenge!
Pence has been an absolutely obsequious servant of Trump. The fact that he is now hated and vilified for not doing something he wasn’t ALLOWED to do tells you everything you need to know about Trump and his followers.
How the heck does one leave a ship that has already sunk?
I welcome that some Republicans have finally realized the menace of Hair Groppingfuror but shake my head. It took an attempted overthrow of the constitutionally elected government to shake them from their lickspittle obedience.
“An’ dey swam an’ dey swam all ober de dam!”
Well,at least one of the two stooges had the smarts,honor,chutzpah to do the RIGHT (and correct) thing…..
Great cartoon. We now have two branches of the Republican party. There are the Republicans who held their noses and voted for Trump and there are the Magats who held their noses and voted for the Republicans, only because Trump chose their party to destroy. Thank God he stated at one point long ago that if he ever ran for office he would run as a Republican because they are stupid. Turns out he was right about at least one thing.
Wonder what the next State of The Union speech will sound like now . . . .
I also got it that Pence stood firm and did his duty despite the pressure and threats to do what Trump (and some other Republicans wanted him to do. I’m no Pence fan—the opposite, in fact. But this time he stood up for the Constitution and his office. Motives may be suspect, but the deed is plain.
To a friend who is an Air Force veteran:
Please, allow me to express my sympathies. Never would I have expected a member of the Air Force to abandon her vow to the Constitution and choose treasonous insurgence over the honor that has historically been the pride of the Air Force. I am sure it is especially painful for you, very possibly more so than it is for just anyone who considers honor and respect for the Constitution that makes our form of government, a democratic republic, possible. I am ashamed that this seditious action happened in our nation, and I send sympathy to you for the dishonor she created for the Air Force. The constructive and lawful actions of others in the military will hopefully soon show our nation and the world that such destructive and treasonous individuals are an aberration. So, please, hold your head high and know that while you openly support our Constitution people will realize that although a small violent minority can do great damage, they are not representative.
Had you read history you would have know that would-be absolute monarchs like Trump and the mobs which hold them up turn on anyone. Waiting does not stop that, only delays it. That Trump called for your head when you decided to obey the Constitution and uphold honor, and that the treasonous sedition insurgents put you on a death list should not surprise you. Sad, but entirely true. Look what the Nazis in the 1930s did to those they now longer had any need to use to get into power.
Sometimes all that it takes for a good nation to fall to dictatorship is not complicit agreement but complacent silence. It does not matter if that silence is from fear caused by intimidation because once authoritarians win then the fear will truly be far greater.
“The silence of good people is more dangerous than the brutality of bad people.” Martin Luther King
Stay vigilant, people, and express your disapproval of those actions, especially to those who are uncertain.
The Nazis got into power eight years after their original failed coup by using and then turning on the German conservatives and bringing down the German legislature.
Why is that shark hesitating to bite? It must be a conflicted conservative…
Too little. Too late. How long can the “white haired guy” hold his breath?
Pence did his duty but no more. I don’t think he is a “hero” for not doing something he could not legally do. Now, if he invokes the 25th Amendment …HERO!
Mitch McConnell actually had a pretty good little speech on the senate floor ….tho he shouldve been as concerned about the right way to do things in the Garland case
and Pence had to be under tremendous pressure . .. tho if he had counted the states wrong, Klobuchar said there would have been objections . . .he maybe should have even done that for one state …so that the maga folks coudve seen it wouldnt have mattered
So, the horned Qanoner who is well known from Trump rallies hid his identity behind STACKED ALIASES. Q Shaman who identified himself as an Arizonan named Jake Angelini in news interviews in the past is actually Jacob Anthony Chansley of Arizona. He has just been arrested. They need to be charged with things like insurgency, coup, cop killing or accessory to cop killing for those who promoted the attack on the Capitol and assisted the attack on the Capitol, destruction of public buildings and public property, even espionage since they moved private information into seditionist organizations.
Too little, too late. :-|
I like the puzzled look on the shark’s face.
