Harshing your mellow since 9/01

Swamp forever, forever swamp

Gee whiz, who coulda seen this coming? Besides everyone, I mean.

Former House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) is moving his family from Janesville, Wisconsin, to the Swamp of Washington, DC, according to a report.

Because of COURSE he is.

“Now in the private sector, Paul and his family are temporarily renting a house in Maryland, and he’ll be spending time there as well as their family home in Janesville,” one aide to the establishment Republican told Politico. Political observers say the move represents a significant shift for Ryan, who for years resisted moving his family to DC…

Right up until he, y’know, didn’t.

“Ryan studiously avoided putting down roots in Washington during his two decades in Congress, famously sleeping in his office. He consistently made clear that his career was based in the nation’s capital by necessity, not choice, and has worn his Wisconsin pedigree as a point of pride,” Politico notes.

So: was he ever for real, or was that “famously sleeping in his office” business just a put-on all along? Also, note well the passing mention of his two decades in Congress. Because that—that right there—is the real root of just about every one of our problems. Whatever Ryno started out being, or may have even sincerely intended to be, he nevertheless became the exact same thing they all do eventually, a thing that was absolute anathema to the Founders: a professional politician.

Alberta’s book also details Ryan’s frustration with President Trump approach to governing.

“I told myself I gotta have a relationship with this guy to help him get his mind right,” Ryan recalled. “Because, I’m telling you, he didn’t know anything about government

Yeah, I can readily see how the idea of a non-career politician, an outsider—a man who’s neither a card-carrying member of the Deep State “elite” nor one of those self-proclaimed “experts” the Progressivist ruling (NOT governing) philosophy is based entirely upon, would annoy a guy like you, ProPol Paul.

The nature of President Trump and Ryan’s tense relationship dates back to the 2016 election, when then-Speaker Ryan vowed not to defend Trump, then the Republican presidential nominee, after the Access Hollywood tape was made public.

“His comments are not anywhere in keeping with our party’s principles and values,” Ryan is heard telling Republican lawmakers during a conference call, according to an exclusive Breitbart News report.

And your party’s “principles and values” are not anywhere in keeping with those of the Founders, sad to say.

“There are basically two things that I want to make really clear, as for myself as your Speaker. I am not going to defend Donald Trump—not now, not in the future. As you probably heard, I disinvited him from my first congressional district GOP event this weekend—a thing I do every year.”

Well ain’t he just the precious, snippity little bitch. But welcome to your true spiritual home, ProPol Paul: Mordor On The Potomac. Now you can rake it in by the millions selling access to the plethora of swinish power-peddlers in your private Rolodex, wallowing in the DC mire right along with all the others of your odious breed. I’m sure you’ll feel right at home with the rest of the swine.
