Mike Pence Quickly Quits House Leadership To Run For President

by Jack Stuef

THE WEEKLY STANDARAD has obtained a letter from Mike Pence, who is believed to be considering a presidential or gubernatorial run, informing his colleagues that he will not seek another term as chairman of the House Republican conference. “Now that we have restored a Republican majority to the House of Representatives and I have fulfilled my commitment to the Republican Conference, my family and I have begun to look to the future,” Pence writes.

“A future making my family suffer terrible embarrassment as I become Indiana’s Tom Tancredo.” [Weekly Standard]

Oh my — it's the end of an era. Who could possibly replace whatsisname at the whatever committee?

Somebody sent him an email saying " I have pictures. Meet me in the usual place with $50,000 in nonconsecutive bills or I send them to Wonkette.

So today's "after much prayerful consideration" is tomorrow's "Shit, somebody's blackmailing me again," amirite?

Either that or "I got caught in Argentina with my diaper down".

If I have to read a description of Mike Pence's pubes I'm never reading Wonkette again.

You're safe. I'm sure he's waxed.

SInce he's the guy who likes to belabor all the tired Family Christian Political tropes so much, you know there's gotta be something truly horrible going on there.

I'm just praying it's something more interesting than the usual mundane dead girl / live boy / livestock thing. Please, Gods of Snark, let it be so!

But howabout if it is all three combined???

The comedic benefit of calling President Pence "PeePee" would not be worth the cost.

My family and I have realized that John Boehner is such a foul beast that his stench is too great even for us. So I quit.

If he starts saying the name Ronald Reagan over and over again we'll know his hat is in the ring.

and 9/11. Pelosi/Reid has lost its mojo.

Pence doesn't hate brown people enough to be Indiana's Tancredo.

Kidneys4Sale November 3, 2010 at 2:16 pm

Tancredo doesn't hate brown people enough to be Indiana's Tancredo, either.

Gopherit November 3, 2010 at 1:41 pm

Sorry, Mike. We've had black. We won't go back.

Really. This guy is white bread spread with marshmallow fluff topped with banana slices and sprinkled with coconut shavings. Couldn't be whiter if you shaved him and spray painted him.

This guy is the definition of a "stuffed suit." Honestly, he's one of the more awkwardly shapped politicians, as if he's some reptilian in an ill-fitting human skin bag. Every time I look at him, I'm waiting for something to tear on him revealing snake scales.

Mike Pence and Chris Christie will run in 2012 on a platform that will reduce the deficit by taxing gravity.

PublicLuxury November 3, 2010 at 8:32 pm

Personally, Pence polluted polarizing pundits pounding palms periodically providing peppered power points politically.

OhNoGuy November 3, 2010 at 10:19 pm

No, no, no. No secret.

Negropolis November 4, 2010 at 6:02 am

This man wishes he could be Indiana's Tom Tancredo. Though, to be fair, he makes Mitch Daniels look like a pinko-commie.

BTW, if he really is thinking of running for president (HA!), he'll have to take out Sarah Palin in an epic supernatural sword fight. THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE!
