In a closed door House GOP meeting Thursday, Indiana congressman and gubernatorial candidate Mike Pence likened the Supreme Court’s ruling upholding the Democratic health care law to the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, according to several sources present.
He immediately apologized.
One helps provide millions of Americans gain access to health insurance, works to lower costs of health care, and does innumerable good things, but a black President might get credit for some of that. The other had 3k Americans killed in a terrorist attack. SAME DIFFERENCE!
Every time I think of Mike Pence, I think of the multiple thrashings he has received from Matt Yglesias:
As I believe I’ve mentioned before, one politician who I think is rarely dishonest in his presentation of his views is Representative Mike Pence (R-IN), who gives every indication of being genuinely stupid.
If Pence heard that, he would probably think it was a compliment.
