On Tuesday night, Paul Ryan – a man who has repeatedly reminded us he has the charisma, topicality and cleverness of a 40-something married fellow in khakis at TGI Fridays – compared the NFL’s replacement referees to President Obama.
“I’m going to start off with something that was really troubling that occurred last night. Did you guys watch that Packer game last night? I mean, give me a break! It is time to get the real refs.”
Wow, Paul. Way to go outside the box on that one. You should start your next press conference with, “9-11 WAS BAD!” That’s assuming you allow real press to ask you questions.
Of course, he continued.
“It reminds me of President Obama and the economy. If you can’t get it right, it’s time to get out. I half-think that these refs work part-time for the Obama administration and the Budget Office.”
Hmm. And, here we thought politicans were sleazy. Talk about making meat loaf from lemons.
Could you get more desperate?
And, talk about terrible timing. It was only a day later that the NFL announced it had come to an agreement with the regular officials, who will be in the lineup for tonight’s Baltimore-Cleveland game.
Meanwhile, Paul Ryan is already looking for the next short-lived wave of emotion sweeping Fat Christian America (no, that’s its actual name), so he can exploit it and turn it into a fun article for sarcastic writers like myself.
