So this happened:
Now we have video. By my count, it took Paul Ryan all of 20 seconds (1:18-1:38) to wash and rinse a pan that needed no washing or rinsing. The words “cursory” and “inane” come to mind. Did I mention “phony” and “exploit”?
Photo ops are nothing new, but this is the guy who would cut Medicaid for the very same people he’s using to prove what a great man of the people he is. Does he seriously believe that one brief, uninvited walk-through at a soup kitchen would convince undecided voters that he’s their guy?
But I have to admit, he did do a stop-and-chat with a real live homeless man, one of the undeserving “you people” 47% crowd… on his way out the door.
Added: MSNBC is reporting that a couple of “dirty dishes were left for him” just for the Big Moment. Did you see any? Me neither.
