It was Tuesday when the Washington Post’s Ashley Parker published a nearly 2,000-word feature on Karen Pence, wife of the vice president. It was far from a hit piece, but the excerpt used in the tweet promoting the feature — extracted from a 2002 interview in The Hill — took on a life of its own and inspired literally days and days worth of jokes hot takes, and in-depth analysis.

The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway feared the worst, and Vox delivered, publishing a piece on how Pence’s rule certainly was not honorable and very likely was illegal. Hemingway pushed back Saturday against days’ worth of feminist arguments that Pence was discriminating against women and denying them equal chance at advancement.
