Oh poor, poor Paul Ryan!

House Republicans voted to gut the Independent Ethics Office
and Speaker Ryan just managed to get run over on both sides
of the issue.

First, he was against it:

With No Warning, House Republicans Vote to Hobble Independent Ethics Office (LBN - locked)

Then, he was for it:

Ryan Defends House GOP Vote To Weaken Ethics Watchdog (LBN)

And then:

Republicans back off gutting of House ethics office after critical Trump tweet (LBN)

GOP caves and withdraws plan to gut the Office of Congressional Ethics after brutal backlash (LBN)

And now an appropriate musical piece to express my sympathy...

Mr. Ryan has such a nice crew of brigands to lead.

5. He doesn't care about ANYTHING else, including nuclear war as long as...

He can gut Medicare and Social Security to make a "Better America."

That has been his wet dream since he first fell in love with Ayn Rand. Other issues be damned.

7. He's dancing as fast as he can...

... his footwork may come to rival that of Bojangles.
