Thanks to the republicans my utilities will still be going up like crazy to line there pockets. One even represents some of the utility companies. Pence is a POS.

Why should we be surprised? Mike Pence ran as a God-Fearing Tea Purty candidate. Why, aw shucks,he was a former congress-critter that didn't really do anything constructive in his years as a congressman, but take advantage of his status as a member of congress.

Now we act surprised and indignant when he appoints lobbyists and members of the utility consensus to oversee the transgressions of the utility industry? That's like asking the fox to watch the henhouse! Tee Purty candidates are always for the big money men. Even though they often mask their ambitions with populist slogans guaranteed to fool the most gullible and asinine..

But,we're prowd Tee Purty memburs. We easily fall for the empty rhetoric,platitudes and canards given by the Koch KossacKs because we're stupid. And we love to swallow what the obstructionists within the republican party love to squirt on our faces.

We are the same people that claim to vehemently distrust the government and believe the government is our enemy. Yet,we ardently applaud the efforts of that very same government (whom we claim to distrust) when they develop another sooper dooper secret weapon that we then later claim will be used against us.

The Tee Purty:

2001 - We must relinquish some freedom for the government to protect us.

2014 - The government is going to lock all of us away in FEMA camps. That's why they're spying on us. Who allowed all of this spying to happen?

George Bush showed leadership when he sat in a classroom reading My Pet Goat when the country was attacked.

911 Was Clinton's fault.

Obama did not capture Osama Bin Laden. George Bush captured Osama.

Sara Palin is brilliant,as is Michelle Bachmann.

The wisdom of Michelle Bachmann:" All one needs to do if you need medical care is to ask your doctor and/or surgeon to trade services for chickens."

We are the same people that continue to give money in the millions to Jimmy Swaggert. But we want to lower taxes for multimillionaires and wonder why our roads and highways are in disrepair.

We claim to hate cowards,yet we revere draft-dodging cowards and pedophiles such as Theodore Nugent.

The Tee Purty = Idiots
