oo-ooh that smell

Paul Ryan, ‘Reportedly,’ Simply Does Not Care To Take Calls From His Stinky Old Boss

Love on the rocks, ain't no big surpriseDoes Politico chief political columnist Roger Simon know what “reportedly” means? Dear reader, do you? For those without your Editrix’s fancee “specialized journalism” master’s, it means “someone somewhere else has already published this information, which we have not confirmed ourselves, but are kind of taking their word for it.” And Politico chief political columnist Roger Simon says that, “reportedly,” Paul Ryan “has been marching around his campaign bus, saying things like, ‘If Stench calls, take a message’ and ‘Tell Stench I’m having finger sandwiches with Peggy Noonan and will text him later.’” Did anybody besides Roger Simon report that? Sure, in the future! Now Roger Simon can simply go back and link to all the people, like us, who have used his report, and say it has been reported! It is sort of like how they got the intel to go to war in Iraq.

We are vaguely sure Roger Simon is attempting “satire.” (His closing sentence, “Sources close to the Ryan campaign tell me his two new PowerPoint presentations will be: ‘How a Bill Becomes Law’ and ‘Canada: Friendly Giant to the North,'” sort of nails it.)

But short of emailing him and asking him, there is simply no possible way to tell! Therefore, we are forced to work from the assumption that Roger Simon is typing out God’s honest rumors and not trying to pen the next “Joe Biden’s Bitchen Camaro.”

But why is Paul Ryan (“reportedly”) being so mean to papa Romney? Well, a) Craig Robinson in the New York Times said Ryan was going to have difficulty getting the Romney stench off him, and b) we are just spitballing here, but sometimes politicians are not very good at controlling their egos! Like, one time we were having an affair with a state senator, and there we were, gazing at him properly and listening to him yammer on and on, our eyes open wide like a good political wife, and as we hung on his every word, we inserted a question that showed how engaged and interested we were in whatever the fuck he was profoundly orating upon, and he held up one index finger and intoned, with this crap Reagan jolly smile, “Now now, I’m not done talking!”

Anyway, we figure Paul Ryan is a spoiled primadonna crazy bitch.

        I was really hoping we could rise above that kind of imagery, as I had just run out of brain bleach.

      • chicken_thief

        So you are saying that Mittens and Pegster are doing the dirty?! I thought I'd heard that somewhere before.

    Mitt keeps calling me, too, also. But having a conversation with robo-Mitt is pretty pointless (just ask that CO schoolteacher), so can't say as I blame Ryan on this one.

    • LibertyLover

      He calls me too. Says he wants money. I tell him to look in his offshore accounts. But it's just a robocall.

    • Serolf_Divad

      I'm getting them, too. They go something like this:

      Mitt Romney: [in a slow, dull, monotone] Hi, this is Mitt Romney, calling to let you know that your spouse just died in a car wreck… [pause] that was a joke, by the way, like to one I told about my wife being trapped in a burning plane because the windows don't roll down. Anyway, I'm just calling to ask for your support this November. I hope I can count on it. Thanks!

      Thanks to Ryan sales of P90X have dropped 17%.

    "Stench" is a good nickname. For either of them.

    • http://wonkette.com/ weejee

      Smells like Team Mitt as Stinque pointed out.

    • Biff

      There was a character nicknamed "Stench" in "The World According to Garp", and the guy said it was because he was rotting from the inside. It fits.

    • Doktor Zoom

      Reminiscent of one of the few good bits in Joseph Heller's dreadfully bad Closing Time, his ill-considered sequel to Catch-22: the Secret Service codename for the President (unnamed, but obviously Dan Quayle) is "The Little Prick."

  • http://simplyleftbehind.blogspot.com/ actor212

    I hope Ryan realizes it will take a shower longer than four more years to get that off him.

    • zumpie

      He will. As he either A) retires altogether after he loses his congressional campaign or B) is no longer EVER again allowed at the KKK Kool Kids Kongressional Table and sits alone on the very backest of benches.

    That Stench is the smell of desperation.

  • calliecallie

    On Wisconsin! The nation is counting on you to make sure this loser loses twice on election day. Let's see if he can shake off that kind of stench. Maybe he'll actually have to get a job in the private sector come November.

    • Boojum

      No, he'll just jump over to a think tank, for which he is patently unqualified.

    • Texan_Bulldog

      Yeah, and God forbid he get a REAL job instead of sucking off the government teat like he has the last 20 years of his life.

      • vtxmcrider

        Longer than that. How about when he was sucking up Social Security survivor benefits that he used to go to school after his father died? This guy's whole life has been parasitic.

    But on Saturday, the day after he was booed, Ryan broke free. Appearing at a town hall meeting at the University of Central Florida in Orlando, Ryan showed the glitz, the glamour, the razzle-dazzle that he was supposed to bring to the campaign in the first place.

    Yeah — definitely satire there.

    • Doktor Zoom

      Or wishful thinking.

      • BerkeleyBear

        Nah, if you click the next page, the razzle dazzle was a power point presentation. Which is something Ryan is well known (and loathed for) in Congress.

        Simon does a pretty fair take down of the cruelty that power point inflicts on an audience, especially when accompanied by a 10 minute monologue on debt. So my verdict is more sarcasm than pure satire, because apparently Ryan really is committed to boring people to death with power point when given the opportunity.

        • http://lostintarnation.blogspot.com/ SayItWithWookies

          What must it take to be not as scintillating a PowerPoint presenter as Al Gore? Or to be considered a crashing bore by your colleagues in the House Budget Committee? The mind shuddders.

  • Ruhe

    Before we all start celebrating the inevitable second term…and I think it is inevitable…ask yourselves this: Will the Republicans in congress finally shake their heads and say "well, he's got us by the short hairs so I suppose we'd better start working together to solve some of this crap, you know, take the long view and all and just do our jobs." Or is it more likely that they'll just double down, as they always do, since the "lost money fallacy" seems guide every aspect of their behavior, forever, amen.

    • Jus_Wonderin

      It is difficult to predict. I'd like to contemplate the former as the latter involves me playing a game of Spin the Handgun.

    • Mojopo

      Republicans still want to win elections. If Obama wins, yes – they will have to change their model. I don't see Republicans going from disagreeable cockbuckets to negotiators, but the rebranding effort will begin quickly if the President wins.

    • Biff

      Down-ticket is very important. It amazes me when a state can deliver for Obama, and then give us a Scott Brown. Or Walker. Or any number of other Scotts or Browns or Walkers.

    • Dildeaux

    • Esteev

      Huckabee took to twitter to announce how "excited" he was that Santorum and Demint joined him and Newt to back Akin.

      "Friends like these, huh Gary?"

  • Mojopo

    I read Politico's article last night, and while I am skeptical, the story resonated with me because it feels emotionally truthful. It isn't hard to imagine Paul Ryan acting like a bad replacement boss on The Office because I can effortlessly recreate the image in my head. He looks like a guy who would say that, and he acts like it. That story says more about me (or anyone who enjoyed it) than it does about Ryan, because it's really about my opinion of him and his boss.

    • prommie

And he is always saying crazy crazy shit, like "We know that Saddam has the capacity to re-activate his weapons of mass destruction research programs." This guy, I am sure of it, is where they got that intel about the WMDs being to the north, south, east and west of Baghdad,. This was the guy that knew about the unknown unknowns!

  • cc423

    The best video from this campaign thus far was shot on 9/25/12 in Ohio. Romney standing in front of a large crowd with Ryan just behind him said that President Obama has not raised taxes in the last four years, but he will in the future. The look on Ryan's face was priceless.

    [Author’s note: Jonathan Swift did not really want Irish people to sell their children for food in 1791; George Orwell did not really want the clocks to strike thirteen in 1984; Paul Ryan, I am sure, calls Mitt Romney something more dignified than “Stench” and Microsoft did not invent PowerPoint as a means to euthanize cattle. At least I am pretty sure Microsoft didn’t.]

    Great, now the "stench" thing will have to be endlessly debunked, like that Romney quote some jerk "pundit" made up earlier in the campaign season. Journalists are supposed to be better than this kind of sloppy shit.

      Real journalists require at least two sources before going to print. Judith Miller wouldn't quote Ahmed Chalabi without confirming things with Doug Feith.

  • ttommyunger

    Hate to break it to you, Sparky, but that "stench" is your upper lip.

  • rocktonsam

    "Stench" an instant classic!

    He got that from the now closed GM plant.

    Lots and lots of re-elect Ryan signs to congress all over Janesville also

    • Rotundo_

      Unfortunately it's the folks in Walworth County (Think Lake Geneva) that elect the little brown noser over and over again. Bastard isn't in my district thank doG…

    I read this last night and thought "WHAT THE FUCK AM I READING!!!" The author, on the 2nd page of the Politico column, starts saying a bunch of shit he thinks is funny or cute, so I thought… "Okay, this is a jokey-type-thing, so is that part about Ryan saying 'put Stench's calls on hold' from the 1st page true? Jokes? half-truesies-half-jokesies? Which half is the truesies, which half is the jokesies?"

    Politico sucks.

  • DahBoner

    GASP!!!

    The only nick worse than 'Stench' would be 'Lumpy'.

    Or 'SmoothAsBabyPoop'…

    "Paul Ryan is a spoiled primadonna crazy bitch"

    Now we know what Romney finds in him. If he was blonde Mitt would get him an apartment right off Central Park.

  • owhatever

    "Sorry, Stench."
    "It's okay, Gilligan. Ann's kinda mad."
    "Why?"
    "Some kind of woman thing."
    "Bush called Karl Rover 'turd-blossom,' and that worked out okay."
    "I'll remember that. Hey, Paul — Ginger or MaryAnne?"

  • ColHeightsChic

    Rebecca, I have SO MANY questions:
    Which couldn't-quite-make-it-to-U.S.-Senator did you bang?
    Was he good?
    Did he give as well as receive?
    Were you trying to sleep your way to the top? If so, the top of what?
    Did you wash your stained dress afterwards?
    I accept both factual and alleged responses.

    • commiegirl99

      I will never tell.
      Yes.
      No.
      No.
      I never wear "clothes."

      • Guppy

        Hell, my only question is whether you had to drink before, during or after sharing this little anecdote with your captive readers.

  • BoroPrimorac

    See what happens when you kiss too much ass, Paul?

  • crybabyboehner

    That Skynyrd song would be a good one for Romney's rallies!

  • mbobier

    Hear that smacking and crunching? I love the sound of wingnuts eating their own young….

  • deliman4

    Shoulda called him "THE TAINT"much more appropriate!!

  • Tundra Grifter

    "Like, one time we were having an affair with a state senator…"

    Reminds me of the secret Wonkette lobbyist columnist with the sweater puppies.

    And Jessica Cutler.

    Good times!

  • Zobaface

    The whole Romney Ryan ticket smells like a guy eating a gargonzola cheeses sandwich while getting a permanent in a porta-potty.

  • kingofmeh

    i think the article is the best thing on Politico, ever, just for this paragraph:

    "Conducting a PowerPoint presentation is a lot like smoking a cigar. Only the person doing it likes it. The people around him want to hit him with a chair."

  • Smithboy

    One…two…three…four…everybody sing the Romney theme song…..Can't buy me love….ove! Can't buy me love…oveee….oveeee!
