It becomes more and more clear every day why the elitist liberal left were so perplexed by Pence’s declaration. They live and work in a world where sexual perversion and misconduct is normalized. It’s so normal, that hardly anyone familiar with any of the accused has expressed shock…just sadness and shame that they were complicit in the coverup for so long. No wonder they think a married man who has never been accused of adultery (that we know of) is a secret pervert. All of their guys are secret perverts. Republican men must be much, much worse!
It is hard for liberals to imagine that a man doesn’t have constant, sexually aggressive urges. It’s on full display every day in the offices of movie agents, producers and their favorite congressmen and Presidents (I’m looking at you, Bill Clinton). Former Democrat Donald Trump has seemed to follow the same playbook. Every man in their orbit displays the familiar characteristics of oversexed, overindulged hormonal playboys.
Of course, that isn’t at all what Pence did. Like many practicing Christians and people of other faiths, Pence understands that even the appearance of “wrong” can be used to spark rumors, spread false accusations and bring pain to one’s spouse.

The vice president understands that as a man in a position of power, he is vulnerable to rumor, misinterpreted intentions and flat out lies. One way to protect oneself from those things is to always make sure a third party is present in any meeting. In addition, as we have seen with the revelations from the last few weeks of the horrific (and even criminal) sexual misconduct of some of the most powerful men in America, power has a tendency to corrupt and leave one vulnerable to the temptation to wield that power. By choosing to not let the opportunity get a even a toe in the door, Pence is recognizing that no man is above making bad choices and he’s doing everything in his power to avoid the trappings of his station.
Only in 2017 America can that be seen as character flaw.
