Maria Bartiromo Doesn’t Have To Fluff Ultra-Slick Mike Pence

Yesterday the CNBC diva had to work overtime making sure the old goat Dick Shelby stayed on message.  Today was another story.  Congressman Mike Pence smoothly regurgitated just about every discredited Republican sound bite we’ve been hearing since 1980.  (My favorite is the one about how all rich people are actually “small businessmen,” so you’d better not tax them or no one will get a job in this country ever ever again.)  Voodoo economist Douglas Holtz-Eakin was on hand as well, in case Pence forgot to dispense some critical dose of wingnut snake oil.

It was a nice and easy afternoon in the interview chair for Maria.  I think I caught her doing her nails while the boys droned on about the wonders of medical savings accounts and supply-side tax cuts.
