Worst damnfool mistake I ever made was letting myself be elected Vice President of the United States. Should have stuck with my old chores as Speaker of the House. I gave up the second most important job in the Government for one that didn’t amount to a hill of beans. I spent eight long years as Mr. Roosevelt’s spare tire. I might still be Speaker if I didn’t let them elect me Vice-President.

Open thread on the Vice (Yawn!) Presidential debate.  This debate features one candidate with truly Catholic moral beliefs, and he is the apostate from Catholicism to Evangelicalism, Mike Pence!  Tim Kaine of course had the misfortune as a young man of having his religious beliefs influenced by Jesuits.  Just imagine what might have been if he encountered a Catholic religious order!  Potential vice presidents debating always remind me of two bald men fighting over a comb.  However if Clinton wins Kaine might well have to assume the Presidency once Clinton’s health deteriorates to the point where she can no longer function, unless Bill Clinton pulls an Edith Wilson.  Trump seems hale and hearty, but he is seventy and the chance of Pence assuming the Presidency of a President in his seventies is not inconsequential.

Update:

At 8:41 PM Central Time Pence is winning going away.  Calm, reasoned and oh so effective at staying on message.  Kaine acts as if he drank a dozen cups of coffee.  Too wired and not effective.  I wish Pence was on the top of the ticket.  He may serve to reassure voters that he will provide adult supervision in a Trump administration.

At 9:13 PM Pence is still dominating the debate.  Pence tonight is gravitas incarnate.

Note how “Catholic” Tim Kaine at the close of the debate attempted to gain votes on the backs of aborted babies.  Truly disgusting.

  • I would say that Kaine’s performance thus far is somewhat Trumpesque.

  • Agreed Greg! Bizarre. Kaine learned all the wrong lessons from the first debate.

  • Never dialogue with one of Satan’s minions.

  • This post nailed it. I suspect that Pence secretly disagrees with at least 30%+ of Trump’s statements and positions. But you know what? Pence is a good and loyal man–out of principle and charity, not ideological or personal self-centeredness. Or so it seems. And yes, there’s a difference. Pence mopped the floor with Kaine, but he did it as a gentlemen.

  • Kaine conflated death penalty with abortion by using that at the beginning of answering the last question on conflict between faith and politics. Because JP II, B XVI and now Francis have all been stridently anti-death penalty, he falsely used that as an example of Church teaching – “my Church opposes the death penalty but as Governor I upheld Virginia’s death penalty laws.” The fact is that B XVI said Catholics in good standing can disagree about the death penalty but cannot disagree about certain fixed issues like abortion.
    .
    The other thing that really pissed me off is Kaine saying that we should trust women to make private decisions about their own bodies without govt interference. That’s BS. The baby isn’t her body. And what about the man who fathered the child? Doesn’t he have rights?
    .
    Here’s the thing. You wallow in heat like a freaking baboon, then you make a baby. You don’t get to say, “Oh, I made a mistake.” Are you really such a non-sentient animal that you can’t control your own body and you just have to have your genitals titillated no matter what, and then abdicate responsibility and evade accountability for what you so willingly did? And the “you” in those statements is plural because it takes a man and a woman to make a baby.
    .
    You know, in the case of Democrats, maybe they are non-sentient animals and maybe they should be treated as such. Kaine certainly looked like a Hyena last night. When is the Church going to ex-communicate these heretics? And how long will God stay His mighty hand of mercy for the unborn before He wipes people like Kaine into the dust bin of history along with Hitler and Stalin and Mao?

  • @Leviticus Quinctius Cincinnatus.

    Yes! They are animals.
    They believe in animal instinct and man sharing that trait because many of them do not believe in the existence of God.
    Spirit? What’s that?

    So they kill. They cheat. They pillage not caring in the slightest of their neighbors nor the concept of eternity.

    Dogs and pigs.

  • Of course , I didn’t watch. From the video tape, Kaine proved competent to inquire daily about the president’s health and attend state funerals, not much else. I don’t know about “devout Catholics.” Does the definition include living in an open marriage and murdering millions of unborn babies?

  • “Frank Luntz sums up the reaction of Democrats to Tim Kaine’s performance with this picture.”

    That, Mr. McClarey, is what the kids call a meme. And it’s an offensive one to corpses at that. How dare you, you living body supremacist.

  • Plus, De mortuis nil nissi bonum. Also, Ben Franklin said, “If you have nothing good to say about someone, don’t say anything.” The quote especially “works” for Hillary regarding her list of zero accomplishes.

  • There is something anomalous abut Tim Kaine. He’s from a perfectly ordinary family, supposedly graduates from college summa cum laude, cadges a degree from Harvard Law School (surely that’s overkill if you just want an ordinary law job), does mission work in Honduras along the way, then settles in his wife’s home town. He works for one firm which was subsequently dissolved, then goes to work for his father-in-law’s firm, a provincial metropolitan firm with (as we speak) 27 lawyers. All of the political offices he held between 1987 and 2005 were part time legislative and/or ceremonial positions, then he’s elected Governor. Along the way, this summa cum laude Harvard lawyer with the Jesuit schooling utters the same banal rot on non-negotiables every partisan Democrat does. Couldn’t all that schooling have taught him some creative rot?

    The pieces don’t fit together.

Tim Kaine’s Guardian Angel Quits

Tuesday, September 20, AD 2016

 

 

At The American Catholic we are dedicated to giving you up to date news on the election campaign.  Thus we have this report from Acts of the Apostasy:

(AoftheANews) NEW YORK – The guardian angel for Democrat Vice-Presidential candidate Tim Kaine told AoftheA News that he is quitting the Clinton campaign, and has announced his endorsement of Donald Trump.

“I’ve had it with him. Completely had it,” the angelic messenger said, relentlessly puffing on a Marlboro. “I haven’t slept in days. He’s driving me nuts. His comments on so-called same-sex marriage over the weekend were the final straw. He really thinks the Church will someday change its position. Sure, he was taught by Jesuits, but he oughtta know better.”

The bedraggled, unshaven divine host of heaven went on. “I probably should have done this when Hillary selected him, but I had hope, you know? Turns out I was just fooling myself.”

He explained that his endorsement of Trump was merely an attempt to get Kaine’s attention. “I’m hoping it’s a wake-up call,” he said, pouring himself a glass of Jack Daniels. “Shock him a bit. Once he hears I want to ‘make America great again’, he’ll come to his senses. Maybe. I’m so beyond frustrated.”

Tim Kaine and Millard Filmore’s Rotting Corpse

Tuesday, September 13, AD 2016

 

Father Z would prefer to vote for Millard Fillmore’s rotting corpse than Clinton-Kaine.  I completely agree with him:

As I have often said and written, I would vote for the corpse of Millard Fillmore (the last Whig President and an anti-Catholic No Nothing) to keep Hillary Clinton out of the White House. And now, with Tim Kaine (can. 915 NOW!) on the dem ticket, I would extend my preference for Fillmore’s cadaver also to Fillmore’s VP’s cadaver… except that Fillmore didn’t have one, that is, he didn’t have a VP.

Fillmore ascended (descended?) to the presidency upon the untimely death of Zachary Taylor (+1850) from a nasty gastric malady after eating, they say, iced milk and raw fruit. (Be wary of milkshakes!) There was a theory that he was assassinated with arsenic or some such. As a matter of fact, in 1991 they would dig him up, Taylor, that is, to test his remains for arsenic.  They determined that it wasn’t arsenic.  It was probably the gastroenteritis that got him after all. Gastroenteritis got him with the help of his doctors, of course.  They bled and blistered him and gave him massive doses of an emetic to induce vomiting called ipecac (I’ll bet that’s as nasty as it sounds), opium, quinine and calomel (aka mercury chloride) which was used as both a laxative and a horticultural fungicide. What could go wrong?

Yes… that paragraph, with its emetics and laxatives and gastric problems, the bitterness of the quinine and the delirium of opiates, surely sets the tone for what follows.

And now to Tim Caine, or, No. 2 (on the ticket).

Catholic Church Will Change on Marriage, Kaine Tells Radical LGBT Group

WASHINGTON (AP) — Democratic vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine is predicting that the Roman Catholic Church may eventually change its opposition to gay marriage. [Can’t be done.]

Kaine is a Roman Catholic [catholic] as well as a U.S. senator from Virginia and a former governor of that state. He told the Human Rights Campaign during its national dinner Saturday in Washington that he had changed his mind about gay marriage and that his church may follow suit one day.  [Quisling.]

[Watch this!  You may need to squint in the sight of his theological brilliance.] “I think it’s going to change because my church also teaches me about a creator who, in the first chapter of Genesis, surveyed the entire world, including mankind, and said, ‘It is very good,’” Kaine said. He then recalled Pope Francis’ remark that “who am I to judge?” in reference to gay priests.  [This is little better than word salad.  Wasn’t it in Genesis that we read that God created man male and female?  Genesis 1 says:  “And God created man to his own image: to the image of God he created him: male and female he created them. And God blessed them, saying: Increase and multiply”,  Right?  God seems to have had a reason for the two sexes thing: increase and multiply.  What’s the old phrase?  God created Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve.  No “increase and multiply” that way.  Kaine seems to have fallen into the trap that God made people homosexual and that the homosexuality is one of the things God said was good.]

“I want to add: Who am I to challenge God for the beautiful diversity of the human family? I think we’re supposed to celebrate it, not challenge it,” Kaine said.  [As an aside: Kaine was educated by Jesuits.  I’m just sayin’.]

While he pledged to fight for increased rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer Americans, Kaine admitted that he had opposed gay marriage until 2005.  [What a guy.]

“For a long time while I was battling for LGBT equality, I believed that marriage was something different,” he said. Virginia’s lieutenant governor when state lawmakers pushed for a constitutional amendment to keep marriage between one man and one woman, he recalled speaking to amendment supporters who said they hoped LGBT people would feel so unwelcome that they would move out of Virginia.

“When I heard the proponents describe their motivations, it became clearer to me where I should stand on this,” he said.  [THAT’s a reason to change your mind about sodomy?]

[…]

Brilliant.

  • Mr. Kaine’s predictions are …. well, deplorable. But in the true sense of the word. ?

  • Objective Truth does not change or evolve in lock-step with the temporal nose dive into moral bankruptcy.
    .
    Stay deplorable, y’all.

  • Catholics in name only who are in politics are abominations and should be excommunicated.

    Harsh? No.

    Merciful…yes.

    Dust off Cannon 915 and apply it you so-called Princes of Holy Catholic Church.

  • He’s a highly conventional man who’s norms are those of the people around him. He’s been both a lawyer and a Democratic pol. It’s likely he does not mix with any other sort of person, or does not take them seriously if he does. A great many people you meet are too shallow to be stubborn, much less to be adherents to a viewpoint able to explain that viewpoint. If he was ever motivated by Catholic principles in political life, he’d have stayed in the private sector, stayed in local politics, or run for office as a Republican. Authentic pro-life Democrats tend to be men who went into politics at a time and place where there was a strong pro-life wing in the Democratic Party (David Carlin, Robert Casey, John LaFalce, Dale Kildee). That does not describe Kaine, who was born in 1958 and first ran for office around the time Douglas Wilder was running ads about how Virginians were all for liberty that dem anti-abortion fanatics would take away from us blah blah.

  • So this could be known as the ” Kaine Mutiny” against Church teaching.
    Kaine publicly admits that he is agreeing to a grave immorality, a disordered depravity.
    He should now be publicly excommunicated.

  • The”Higher Ground Moral Day of Action,” as reported on Lifesite news is in line with Kaine convoluted ideas of justice; http://www.lifenews.com/2016/09/13/baptist-methodist-episcopalian-and-presbyterian-clergy-participate-in-rally-for-abortion/

    It seems Kentucky Kool Aid is being served up by the clergy. Ten commandments? Did they ever hear of them?

Obama taps pro-life Catholic for DNC Chair? — Guess again.

Tuesday, January 6, AD 2009

“A Pro-Life DNC Chair!”, crows an apparently elated Michael Sean Winters in America, at the news that President-elect Obama has tapped the Virginian governor for DNC chair:

I never thought I would live to see the day. If anyone had any doubts about Barack Obama’s willingness to listen to pro-life Democrats, his selection of Virginia Governor Tim Kaine to head the Democratic National Committee should settle those doubts. Obama means business.

Perhaps, perhaps not.

  • What Kaine said can be seen here. Indeed, in his own words, he is not in favor of overturning Roe, and should not be counted as a pro-life Catholic.

  • Here is a politician who straddles the fence like the rest. What he supports has not stopped nor will it stop the killingof the unborn til Roe vs, Wade is gone. Its like claiming to be a little being a “little bit” pregnant.
