Uh-Oh…

Paul Ryan, newly attuned to his Irish heritage

Paul Ryan, newly attuned to his Irish heritage

Paul Ryan announced today that after immersing himself in Irish history and literature he will be announcing a new poverty initiative in the coming weeks.

“The criticism last week really got to me,” Ryan said, “I mean, I’ve seen The Quiet Man like a hundred times, drink green beer on St. Patty’s day, loved The Departed, and the Family Guy Irish history episode . . . but I guess none of that counted with the liberal media.”

Nevertheless, the Congressman began an intensive study, with unexpected results.

swift“It was remarkable, really,” Ryan gushed, “I had just finished some leftist drivel about Oliver Cromwell and was dreading tackling the Penal Laws,” the Congressman rolled his eyes, “when I saw it …. ”

“A well thought out, well written answer for our ongoing poverty problem. Brilliant, really – and to think it was called A Modest Proposal!”
