Charlie McCarthy Is Smarter Than Mike Pence

In the middle of the last century, Edgar Bergen was an entertainer and ventriloquist whose partner was a wooden dummy named Charlie McCarthy. Oh, in case you are wondering, yes, Candice Bergen is Edgar’s daughter, but let’s talk about dummies. A puppet or dummy takes on the personality of the person who operates them. Someone must manipulate the gestures, words and movements of something that has no IQ or human intelligence.

Charlie & Edgar

Mike Pence is big, pale dummy. I am not sure if he’s being operated by someone who can throw his voice, but when the Vice President talks I think I see Trump’s lips moving while they are connected to Pence’s brain. For those who watched the old day antics of Bergen and McCarthy, you knew that all the punchlines came from the 40-pound collection of wood and cloth. McCarthy was the smart one. In the case of Trump’s Veep puppet, he’s dumber than Donald. By the way, Charlie is also smarter than Trump.

I know there are some who think Mike Pence is honest, but that pious piece of baloney is full of bad advice and lies just like his boss. No American can swallow anything he says. Why do we let these propagandists waste our time with charts and graphs and running out of the room before they have presented a sound plan and genuine guidance? At the first COVID-19 Task Force press briefing in months. Pence was questioned about why the Trump campaign is putting people in harm’s way by holding rallies in vulnerable states, Mike the dummy talked about the First Amendment. What?

All Trump needs to do to keep more people from getting infected is STOP HOLDING THE RALLIES. All the administration must do to lower virus spread in the US is issue an executive order that EVERYONE MUST WEAR A MASK IN PUBLIC. Even if the ventriloquist were to pull his hand from the backside of the Vice President long enough for him to think about what he is saying, we still would get a heap of horseshit. Mike Pence is incapable of saying anything helpful.

When Mike Pence tried to shovel the drivel that we are better off now than we were three months ago, he should have been more careful not to get the bile on him. He’s just another loser politician who cannot be trusted. When he tells us to pray, remember that is what they said to the Titanic passengers who didn’t get seats on the lifeboats.

Just when Pence could have made a difference and been more firm about guidelines from the CDC and the Task Force, he used the old “not my job” excuse by saying people should do what their state officials tell them. As a taxpayer, I must ask why we are paying Mike Pence? If he won’t share the guidelines and best practices of the medical experts, then what good is he?

This latest debacle and misuse of our citizens’ time make it clear; MIKE PENCE SHOULD NEVER BE PRESIDENT. He’s more than a dummy; he’s a douchebag!

Why am I so upset? While he was on TV babbling stupid things, both Texas and Florida re-closed their bars. While several states were putting the reopening “on pause,” as they say, this manure spreader was telling us the administration has done such a great job handling the global pandemic. You might ask how my words make things better. Well, THEY DON’T, but when I say bad things about Mike Pence, I feel better. Hey, I am wearing a mask when I type these putdowns.

Donald Trump and Mike Pence are harming people. They are feckless, fake fathers of fear and loathing. The revulsion I feel for Mike Pence and his patronizing use of religion is palpable.

Mannequins don’t feel anything. They have no guilt. They have no moral grounding. They are just pieces of cloth, staples and wood controlled by their master. Charlie McCarthy had a sense of humor and obviously understood timing. Our nation really needed an update, but Mike Pence’s words were ineffective and the ground where he stood was shaky and undefendable.

Since we are talking about Mike Pence, let me quote Matthew from the Holy Bible, “…everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.” This is the Gospel of the Lord, and Mr. Pence is not worthy.


The book that tells it like it is…

Gold, God, Guns & Goofballs: If you only read one chapter of this book, try “Take a Knee for America” and think about our never-ending conflicts between minorities and the police. I’m not asking you to take a stand but having a deep and honest conversation about why some people think the way they do would be productive. This is a book for the moment which seeks to start a conservation about peace. And if you are worried about social media, you really should check out the chapter called “Social Media Menace.”

One thought on “THE OTHER BIG DUMMY

  1. My shoe is smarter than Mike Pence.
    I thought Fauci and Birk were actually getting somewhere in talking about societal responsibility, although the charts and graphs served to blunt the message. But then, of course, the vice stomped all over it with his lofty pronouncements about what “is enshrined in the Constitution of the United States.” The same might be argued about societial responsibility, sir.
