Pence: More Continual Bastardry

From Blue Indiana: Rep. Mike Pence on War
Just so we're clear, here's the rundown:

Congressman Mike Pence on the Iraq War:
And so it went, up and down the street, in between tents and tables, squeezing past pedestrians to inspect the offerings in one booth after another, we milled around this marketplace in downtown Baghdad for more than an hour. I told reporters afterward that it was just like any open-air market in Indiana in the summertime.
Congressman Mike Pence on cap-and-trade legislation:
"I think, rightly understood, the cap and trade legislation represents an economic declaration of war on the Midwest by liberals in Washington, D.C.," Pence said in a telephone interview.

Real War = Peace. Energy Independence = War.

Any questions?
Yes, actually, I have a question:

Why is this man still being allowed to open his yap without someone rightfully telling him to stuff a sock in his warmongering wordhole? Why is it that the people around here seem to think he's the greatest thing since the wheel? Why is it this man is allowed to continue lying, day in and day out, especially on our televisions, without anybody trying to set him straight?

Mike Pence is, to put it bluntly, stupid. Yes, that's the kindest way I can put it: He's stupid. He says stupid things, he believes stupid things, therefore he qualifies as stupid.
