Gerald Ford’s life was never the same after he stumbled on the steps of Air Force One and then Chevy Chase conveyed the image into everybody’s living rooms and psyches. Today, Mike Pence joins Ford in the pantheon of clumsy Republicans who can’t walk on ramps. Seriously.
So do you think we got in their head with the whole ramp thing?

Rampophobia is going to become the new GOP gauntlet. If you want to run for office on their ticket, you’re going to have to attend Ramp Etiquette 101, and demonstrate an ability to dominate the battlefield that the ramp imposes. There will be an advanced course on umbrellas and ramps.
And Pence did this WITH handrails. That was Trump’s gripe at West Point, that there “were no handrails and it was like a skating rink.”
And then there’s this jewel. Remember this?
