Be Careful What You Wish For

I've heard and read a fair amount of sentiment along the lines of "We have to get rid of Trump; Pence couldn't be as bad." Well. . . . Here's the tip of the iceberg:

Vice President Mike Pence's fellow Republicans took a number of steps Thursday to undo his policies, just weeks after the former governor left Indiana for the White House.

His handpicked successor and former lieutenant governor, Gov. Eric Holcomb, began the day with a news conference where he announced that he was canceling contract negotiations to lease state-owned cellphone towers to an Ohio company. The Pence administration had struck a tentative deal with the company and promised it would cover the cost of more than $50 million in bicentennial construction projects he initiated.

Privatize everything!

Read the whole article, just to get a good idea of what real prick our vice president is. Keep in mind, these are Republicans undoing his damage -- or trying to. I don't think I want him in the White House -- Trump, at least, is ineffectual.
