Searching for Anything to Criticize

Mike Pence is making news these days for being devoted to his wife, It's because of the “Billy Graham Rule,” that Graham instituted after finding a naked woman in his hotel room, who wanted to seduce him, so as to destroy his ministry, and fleeing from the room. It involves never being alone with a woman other than his wife, and never drinking alcohol if she isn't beside him, nor dining with any other women. It appears that VP Mike Pence follows the same rule. They criticize him for that, even in some cases saying that he “adheres to Muslim principles.”Which is supposed to really paint him nasty. Liberal reporters obviously are looking for ANYTHING they can twist to make Trump look bad (such as intimating, with no proof, that he has slept with his daughter), and making Pence look bad is an adjunct to that. They can't find anything on either man, so they make it up. They find something admirable (if misguided for a VP) and make out like there's “something sinister” about it. The practice IS a “little overboard,” because a VP is going to be required to deal with many women, in his job. It's admirable to want to stay as far away from temptation as he can, but even going that far is not bad. (Washington Post)
