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.

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…
