Fake Caring

October 15th, 2012

Inspired by Charity president unhappy about Paul Ryan soup kitchen ‘photo op’ (Felicia Somnez, WashingtonPost.com 10/15/12).


“But the Lord said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart.” – 1 Samuel 16:7


In an attempt the meme that he’s uncaring to allay.

Paul Ryan visited a shelter today


He put on an apron and washed a pot,

Helping clean up after dinner…not


It turns out dinner was long over and the dishes all clean–

A relief for Paul, since he was just there to be seen.


So, Paul just put on his apron and posed,

And thus his true colors exposed:


He doesn’t care about you, but he’s happy to pretend,

At least until the electoral campaign’s end.


Though washing already-washed pots may seem a little strange,

It’s just like their Medicare plan: change things that don’t need change.


But in Paul Ryan’s defense,

When it comes to pretense,

Cutting social programs to fund tax cuts for the rich

is a much worse offense.


Here’s CBS’s 10/15/12 report on Paul Ryan’s fake visit to a homeless shelter today. That pan looks pretty clean already, wouldn’t you say?
