Response to Botany (Original post)

6. I've always wondered about that

I think maybe the Russians have something on either Pence or his brother, or else they just picked him as the best option to secure the evangelical vote while being no threat as far as actually assuming power himself. A steady, dignified looking foil to fuckface's antics. A solid choice, really...which is why it must have been Putin's. I seem to recall stories about fuckface himself looking bemused and saying something like "does it really have to be that guy?"; so VP Pence was clearly placed there at Manafort/Putin's direction. It's going to make it very difficult to deal with if/when fuckface resigns, dies, or is deposed before his term is up...who the fuck knows what else is in the plans if that happens?

You really do have to hand it to the Russians...This was a long-term operation (and ongoing, of course), with so many bases covered--right on down to disabling DU on election day, to prevent real-time reporting of weird things that didn't seem right--really pretty impressive. Who ever thought the end of America would come like this? Well, aside from the makers of Idiocracy I guess...but the complexity of the espionage and dirty tricks involved here are just amazing.
