There was Howdy Doody, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), on "Meet The Press" Sunday morning, still trying to drive us all into the Republican Party. Is it just us, or is this guy, with the vacant eyes and the frozen "Children of the Corn" smile, really, really scary? Ryan is that kind of scary you get when you spend the night at an aunt's house, and when you wake up in the morning, the first thing you see is your aunt's China doll, sitting in the corner, staring at you with those big, round, glassy eyes that never blink.
If you're worrying about Paul Ryan and his Republican thugs' desire to eliminate Medicate, Medicaid and Social Security, there's just one thing you need to know. According to Paul Ryan's biography, when Ryan was sixteen, his father died, and for the next two years, until he was eighteen, Ryan received Social Security payments. So, yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus, and in the Republican Party there is montrous hypocrisy. The main point guy of the Republican Party who is declaring that
"entitlements" are destroying our nation, himself benefitted from those same "entitlements". Wow. Just remember that fact the next time you watch Paul Ryan tell all of us how we need to "cut back" and be more "self-sufficient" as individuals.
