Even though Indiana Gov. Mike Pence at first said Republicans would "fix" their law authorizing discrimination but they wouldn't provide any legal protections for LGBTs, it's starting to sound as if they may be forced to do exactly the opposite of what they set out to do -- allow their state into the 21st century, kicking and screaming.
There have even been reports that Pence thought his big anti-gay law would catapult him into a presidential campaign. Where are voters finding these people?
Frank Rich of New York Magazine commented about the guv: "You have to wonder how stupid he thinks people are. Pence has a consistent record of supporting anti-gay discrimination, from speaking against the repeal of 'don't ask, don't tell' in 2010 to opposing state laws that protect the rights of gays and lesbians."
It's one thing to be a bigot. America seems to be full of them again, just like old times, and Pence certainly distinguished himself in that arena in his earlier elected capacity.
Still, it's another thing to lie over and over trying to cover up the fact that you've exposed yourself to the world as a bigot, and that seems to be Pence's main preoccupation since he signed his pet "religious freedom" religious discrimination bill.
