The Honor of Rep. Paul Ryan

As was foretold by, well, anyone with any sense, GOP Speaker of the House Paul Ryan managed to Tweet an endorsement of the GOP Presidential Nominee-apparent, as well as writing an op-ed to justify his decision. He may not approve of all the terrible things Donald Trump has to say--Oh, Gracious, No! But he is pretty well satisfied that Donald Trump is exactly the person to be counted on to make the House GOP's agenda into law. You know, the lot so dysfunctional he's the only guy they can even make act as presiding grown-up.

In other words, he does not give a good goddamn if Trump is a Nazi, so long as he's quite on board with granny-starving. I don't know if the Speaker of the House thinks he's riding the bull, or has found himself under it. I do not even know if there is any value in the way he does not like Trump's racialist tone regarding the nationality of the judge presiding over his fraud case.

He has endorsed Trump. That is all we know, and all we need to know.
