Pence is a model of governing by groveling … George F. Will ~ May 10, 2018


George F. Will, probably the most important conservative columnist since the time of William F. Buckley, wrote a brilliant column Thursday raking Pence over the coals for groveling before Trump. Will’s column included this:

“The oleaginous Mike Pence, with his talent for toadyism and appetite for obsequiousness, could, Trump knew, become America’s most repulsive public figure.”


Many prominent Republicans and conservatives privately believe what Will wrote in this column, but publicly lack the courage to say it, which illustrates the crisis of principled conservatism that Will is addressing.
