Ohio Soup Kitchen Obviously The Real Villain In Paul Ryan’s Dishwatergate

In yet another example of the weird-ass confluence between food and politics in the current campaign season, the Youngstown, Ohio soup kitchen where Paul Ryan staged a photo-op by washing clean pans is now facing an angry wave of cancelled donations, maybe! Nothing supports the GOP stance of letting private charity take the place of government programs like starving some homelesses out of bungled-photo-op spite. Or maybe it’s receiving a surge of generous private donation fom libruls who want Big Government to provide everything to the Poors? Or some of each? As you recall, the St. Vincent DePaul Society’s president, Brian J. Antal, objected after the Ryan team “ramrodded their way” into the kitchen after it had already finished serving local Poors their gruel for the day, saying that the empty gesture never should have been allowed. As a result, Romney/Ryan supporters have withheld donations from the Catholic charity and flooded it with angry phone calls. God told them to, we are quite sure.

Paul Ryan Loves Poors So Much He Didn’t Even Punch This Homeless Man In The Face (Video)

Remember yesterday, when we learned that mortician’s apprentice* Paul Ryan likes to help poor people by doing jobs that have already been done? (And THANKS, Wonkette tip line tipsters, for asking this morning why we are not all over this. THANKS FOR READING, SO MUCH. Here, let us give you that link AGAIN.) And not only that, but he “ramrodded” his way in, and everyone was sooo pissed? Well above is the fascinating behind-the-scenes video of “Mr.” Ryan so naturally rolling up his sleeves to wash that clean pan for the cameras. My, he doesn’t even have to think about it for a moment! Clean pan? Sure! Got a brush? It is vaguely fascinating! But we also have a new aspect to this story, and that is the homeless man Paul Ryan graces with his mouthwords right at the end of the video.

Dishwatergate: Paul Ryan Dishwashing Scandal Worse Than Ever Imagined

In the distant past — a couple hours ago? — we saw on the Tweeter that utter douche Paul Ryan had done some stupid photo-op at a soup kitchen where breakfast had already been served and the dishes already washed. But never one to let a 15-minute investment be for naught, he picked up a sponge and faked washing some pans for the cameras. Now, we did not run with this TERRIBLE SCANDAL because we honestly figured that pretty much every politician on the planet would do the same thing, and sometimes (weirdly) we are not Titans of Hypocritical Partisanship. BUT! Now the soup kitchen’s president has bitched to the Post that HE OR SHE (okay, he, we checked now) is MAD AS HECK, because not only was it a bullshit photo op, but the Romney-Ryan campaign had “ramrodded” their way in. That does not sound very nice! Or heterosexual! Read more on Dishwatergate: Paul Ryan Dishwashing Scandal Worse Than Ever Imagined…
