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?
