    As to that very last Tweet, I suspect no. Paul likes lamp.

    professionally jealous is an interesting way to spell, “emasculated”.

    This could be Trump’s theme song: Destroy Everything You Touch by Ladytron.

    Someone should get Ladytron (if they are still working) to write Trump-specific lyrics…

    I don’t think the pathetic dunsel that is Paul Ryan has the self-respect or self-awareness (or any sense of professionalism) to be professionally jealous of Nancy Pelosi.

    Trump’s Katrina….was Puerto Rico, but since Trump somehow got a pass for a horrific lack of compassion for his own citizens, it will have to be the shutdown. The moment where his power and remaining political capital evaporated.

    Kacie Hunt had Ryan Costello on her show in his last day or two in Congress and touted him as a true moderate. I wanted to scream since he voted for Ryan’s bill with wall funding in an act of either cowardice or extremism. Curbelo voted no; Lehtinen voted no. Couldn’t Costello have mustered the courage?

    This could be Trump’s theme song

    It would be sung to him; the Robert Palmer tune, slightly abbreviated:

    “Might as well face it, you’re addic…”

    That might not work well in text. Try singing it

    Drezner brings up a point i’ve been wondering about since the shutdown started: the almost complete lack of media attention to Pathetic Hack Speaker Ryan’s role in precipitating the whole crisis with his final turd-on-the-carpet budget resolution. So we now learn this was actually Trump’s idea? Figures…..

    A propos absolutely nothing: If you play the ancient pop song Cerisiers Roses et Pommiers Blancs on a Strat through a very loud amp with heavy distortion, it sounds quite charming.

    Oh, by the way: you can’t really expose Paul Ryan as a phony. He’s never been anything else. The only people who haven’t noticed it are those who don’t want to.

    @Amir Khalid: In other words, the vermin of the Village.

    Ryan came to Congress with one goal. He failed to acheive it, but not for a lack of trying. Strip away the safety net. Sow fear in the heart’s of his fellow Americans so that they can know and understand what it us to be old, or sick or helpless and then have no where and no one to turn to.
    And then to die in penury.
