So Paul Ryan is retiring. Well, more specifically, he’s not seeking re-election, which is basically the same thing. He talks a big game about wanting to settle down, raise his kids, and just move forward knowing he’s accomplished the things he’s want to accomplish, which was apparently to screw over just as many old and poor people as he possibly could. But it’s hard to not to see it as a well time escape. A jumping ship move, or to quote Douglas Adams, “So long and thanks for all the fish!”. It’s hard to argue that the Republicans aren’t in something of a politically turbulent time right now, and how that’s going to shake out in the coming weeks and months must be on the forefront of Ryan’s mind. I wonder if he’ll be getting out soon enough?
