A Failed Flawed Duty
Defending the indefensible is an art most people sorely lack. Some, when caught in this position : deny feverishly, at first, then deflect its magnitude before ignoring the charge completely. The art of the dodge was worn thin last evening when Mike Pence had to, him and haw, as Tim Kaine lowered the charge over and over again that he should defend statements both Donald Trump and he himself, Mike Pence, uttered during the campaign. Defending the indefensible is, at best, a zero sum gain.
