Alone Together  
One of the national stereotypes I grew up with was that the hot-blooded Hispanics were such animals that they had to evolve the concept of the duenna, a third person who had to be present because a man left alone with a woman would inevitably rape her. The Rude Pundit, using language as usual, notes that the Republicans consider themselves that sort of hot-blooded animals, or at least think that Mike Pence is one (it’s those beady little eyes!) and are taking precautions.

Sounds more like it's Mike Pence's wife (whom he calls 'Mother' like that's not creepy) who won't let him be alone with other women. Maybe she thinks he's a rapist horndog, or (more likely) she thinks other women are all godless jezebels who would throw themselves at him. But either way, it's perfectly true that Pence can neither have sex nor be accused of trying to have sex when she's always with him.

It's also true that if Weinstein had always had his Mother with him whenever he was around a woman, he wouldn't have had either sex or accusations of sex. But that's kind of missing the point, isn't it?
