A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo

Day 79. 132,926 words. Full day meeting so no writing, I am just penning this on the bus.

Today I had the delight to listen to the latest series of scathing notes on Mike Pence by the Last Week Tonight crowd.

It was glorious.

Anyway, I went straight to Amazon to check this shit, and it turns out yeah, there are books.


It doesn’t look good for Pence. Those reviews are worth a look just on their own. I’m also mildly amused by Thump: The First Bundred Days … but I am broke for this month.

I grabbed two copies of the Last Week Tonight book. One for Bar Äijä’s, and one to read to my kids.


I’ve disliked Pence on a visceral level since I saw he was the legitimate face of evangelical evil in the United States. The one who makes Trump actually look okay. And Trump is not okay. Pence is the only reason I wouldn’t want Trump booted out of office. And you’d better believe that was intentional.

So if I can give him the finger from Finland by buying a book, it is done.


About Hatboy

I’m not often driven to introspection or reflection, but the question does come up sometimes. The big question. So big, there’s just no containing it within the puny boundaries of a single set of punctuationary bookends. Who are these mysterious and unsung heroes of obscurity and shadow? What is their origin story? Do they have a prequel trilogy? What are their secret identities? What are their public identities, for that matter? What are their powers? Their abilities? Their haunted pasts and troubled futures? Their modus operandi? Where do they live anyway, and when? What do they do for a living? Do they really have these fantastical adventures, or is it a dazzlingly intellectual and overwrought metaphor? Or is it perhaps a smug and post-modern sort of metaphor? Is it a plain stupid metaphor, hedged around with thick wads of plausible deniability, a soap bubble of illusory plot dependent upon readers who don’t dare question it for fear of looking foolish? A flight of fancy, having dozed off in front of the television during an episode of something suitably spaceship-oriented? Do they have a quest, a handler, a mission statement, a department-level development objective in five stages? I am Hatboy. https://hatboy.blog/2013/12/17/metalude-who-are-creepy-and-hatboy/

  1. LMAO

    Imma check all this out later, kinda busy now Lumburgh, but LMAO anyway. I feel safe in that LMAO.

    Did you know Pence refuses to attend any party with alcohol without his wife, or eat a (work-related) meal with any female employee without a male (chaperone, let’s be honest) also there?

    Aside from how hopelessly pathetic that is, and what it says about his own moral convictions (in his ability to be faithful), think about how it also disadvantages his female employees due to access to him.

    Fucking loser.

    What was amazing to ME, was…well first a little background: typically the main political TYT videos that get a lot of hate are just the ones about Trump. They can take down any other Republican with little backlash.

    But the video they did on Pence specifically about his ultra-religious pansiness (above) received a similar level of hate to the anti-Trump videos. I found that also really sad.

      The guy seems like he should be declaring himself the voice of God and encouraging a mob of scared people to murder each other in a shopping mall surrounded by deadly, deadly mist. That’s all I’m sayin’.

    I’d like to share some more amazing details.

    First, the book is absolutely caning it in the ratings.

    Second, the 1-star reviews it’s getting? Most of them seem to say “yeah nah, five stars really. I just put one star so I can say UP YOURS all over again to the homophobes who click on the one-star ratings in search of affirmation and friends.”
