A Paul Ryan Conundrum 

The perfect idiom for the point I want to make escapes me, but the idea is—

If you blindly shoot a million arrows, and one of them hits a target, that doesn’t make you a marksman. Is it the law of averages?

Paul Ryan said something normal. 

Here is what led up to the crazy turn of events:

Classified transcripts of two of Donald Trump’s phone conversations, one with the President of Mexico and the other with Australia’s Prime Minister, were recently published by the Washington Post. 

Attourney General Jeff Keebler Elf Sessions issued a government wide crackdown on leakers, warning journalists and media outlets who publish such information that they could be subject to subpoenas and forced to reveal their sources to the Justice Department. 

In defense of the media, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said:

“Leaks are concerning because leaks can often compromise national security, but that’s the problem of the leaker not the journalist,” 

Halley’s Comet, appears in the sky every 75 years, making it possible to see it twice in a lifetime if you live to an advanced age. Paul Ryan was not reprehensible. Can we expect to see that again in our lifetime? 

One thought on “A Paul Ryan Conundrum 

  1. Baby steps, Lydia. Baby steps. And the little Elf thinks no government can be effective when its leaders cannot discuss sensitive matters in confidence? What does he mean by ‘sensitive’? I think he needs to talk to Trump who cannot seem to keep his mouth shut about anything–sensitive or not.
