Ryan Chose This

Paul Ryan’s had quite the career: Congressman, House budget chairman, vice presidential candidate, Speaker. He chose each of these positions; not one was the result of conscription.

Ryan chose again, this morning, freely and deliberately.

There is likely no way back from this choice. There are, of course, people who grew up in the Klan, for example, and later turned away. Of people who grew up in reasonable conditions, however, and only thereafter turned away into grave error, there are (for reasons inscrutable) far fewer redemptive outcomes.

Many will have ruined themselves, freely and with fervor, before Trumpism is finished.

Ryan is one from among those many.

    The Wisco-Kid is discovering that there is Joe’s immutable first law of modern-day politics: You get anywhere near Trump, you will get covered in shit. Not just splattered, like you were wandering thru a dairy barn in spring, when green-feeding starts, and a cow sneezes with its nether-region pointed at you, but completely encased, like a mud-wasp nest. It is a more reliable law than Newton ever postulated. It happens to everyone. Consider in just the last week that Kushner, Priebus, Yertle, DJ Trump, Jr., and the Mooch all had to break out the hollow reeds in order to breath as they rapidly submerged in the Trumpian manure lagoon. Kelly will join them, in a short while, perhaps a month or two, at the most. Trump will crush your spirit, your career and likely even set you up to go to jail, and he won’t think twice about it.

    And it ain’t over yet…Trump has many more lives to destroy.

      So very perfect. There it is, clearly: “You get anywhere near Trump, you will get covered in shit….completely encased, like a mud-wasp nest.” True enough, also, that many more will be ruined before Trump meets his political outer darkness.

    Sorry for the ignorance, but what does “RT” stand for in Ryan’s tweet… “Russia Today”?? 🙂

      (Yes, indeed, too funny – it might as well stand for Russia Today, for how far some of these men have sunk!) Twitter has its own odd jargon. In this case, he’s asking his Twitter followers to re-tweet (RT) his message. Most on Twitter don’t ask so blatantly; it’s usually implied that one would like RTs of one’s message.
