But remember how Clinton gave speeches to Goldman Sachs? Will Pence be releasing his transcripts of this closed doors talk.

If Trump gets thrown out, surely his entire election including his Vice President will be so bereft of credibility that has could Pence survive?

Well, it's not like Trump was oozing credibility before he got elected.

And it isn't like the GOP cares. As far as they are concerned, they won. The details surrounding the how, are completely and utterly irrelevant. Because, they won.

I expect this is about trying to get the Kochs to back pro-Administration midterm candidates.

Support primary candidates vs nsughty boys like Flake who are mean to Two Scoops and support incumbents who kissed his....ring.

Pence may be dumb enough to think Trump only wants one Term and then Pence inherits the Revolution so they need to remake Congress to get'er done.

Yeah, I don't take anything for granted after this last sh*tshow of an election. Pence was pretty much out on his ass until The People Spoke (sort of).

By all rights. A humorless, evangelical with little native charisma and only smug grin going for him. But the GOP is expert at dropping election season shenanigans now plus they should have the voting rolls worked out just fine, not to mention what foreign actors might do.

I'm not too worried about 2020. By that time the GOP will be so damaged by their incompetence and D2S's toxicity that the Dems could run, hell...a black guy and beat him.

Of the three statements, this does seem closest to true.

Manafort has already "gone away" and I doubt he'll be back anytime soon. If ever.

Pence would never have made it through a primary, let alone a general election.

Pence only seems quiet and sane right now because of who he is always standing next to. He's a hardcore religious zealot who could carry whitebread heartland Evangelicals, and not too much else. He's got none of The Donald's Pomp and Bombast, and he can't fake it, and it isn't like those voters have loyalty or anything.

Part of why Hair Furor's act worked in the primaries was that he was the only crazy one on stage.  In a debate, everybody's trying to show they're just a bit more *fill in conservative value* than the Other Candidates. When ONLY ONE person on stage has no limits, consequences, or long-term strategy, they can blow past everyone else, promise crazy shiat, claim insane things, and all the other candidates will not try to overtop that, because it's insane, even for that crowd, but there's also no arguing with it, effectively, because *crazy*.

When there are two or more... (and you know we'll have lost next cycle) that math is out the friggin' window.  The Trump-Model candidates will be re-enacting the barber chair race for the sky scene from Bugs Bunny & Elmer Fudd's "Hair Tonic" cartoon with each other when it comes to debate and campain promises.  Meanwhile all the other candidates can point, shake their heads, and move to the Adult Table.

 I think we're going to see a lot more people try to mimic Donald's style and I think it's going to fall on its face in all but the most deserving rural republican communities, they're always a little slower on Scaling that learning curve.

I seriously can't wait for Trump to fire Pence via twitter. (Hopefully during a Hucky Boo Boo presser)

Trump has already ended American Supremacy.  He'll start a nuclear war and turn America into a gulag-laden pariah State before he allows himself to be held accountable for his crimes.

If you have friends and family in prison, remind them that they may need to defend themselves against extrajudicial execution in the event of nuclear war--they're dead if the Trump Administration decides it needs the gulag space.

America has built the infrastructure for a Final Solution that will make the Nazis look like dilettantes.  The only thing missing is the ovens.

The only way America experiences free and fair elections are if the electronic voting machines are decommissioned and destroyed.
