He uk canada goose outlet has not managed Canada Goose Coats

Paul Ryan can’t possibly have made a deal with the Devil

“I don’t see this canada canadagoosejacketsalesca goose outlet store uk as some Faustian bargain, Devil’s canada goose clearance bargain or whatever canada goose outlet store it is you goose outlet canada call it.” House Speaker Paul D. Ryan canada goose (R Wis.)to Jake Tapper, asked about whether he “personified the Devil’s bargain the GOP has signed with Trump”

Paul Ryan did not make a deal with canada goose outlet black friday the devil. That much is obvious.

His piano playing has not improved. He has not become any wiser. He canada goose coats has not been able to travel widely and canada goose uk outlet see the great sights of the present and past. Helen of Troy has not made him immortal with a canada goose outlet canada kiss, canada goose outlet uk sale and he has not gotten to go to canada goose outlet reviews a single witches’ sabbath(although he has heard continually about witch hunts).

He has not become able to fly. (Scott Pruitt has, and Tom Price has, often, and at great expense.) There is no picture of him in a closet that ages and becomes hideous while he himself remains boyish. The picture of him that has becomemore buy canada goose jacket and more embarrassing to look at is the one that appears on TV, every uk canada goose day, where everyone can see it.

His golf game has not improved (nor has he really gotten the opportunity to practice, as the president has). He cannot becomeflame and ride a motorcycle. He uk canada goose outlet has not managed Canada Goose Coats On Sale to bring anyone back from canada goose black friday sale the dead, or even gotten to eat half a pomegranate. The buy canada goose jacket cheap Senators, his canada goose factory outlet favorite team, have not been victorious. (Well, they have, but seldom, and by very narrow margins, and not on every issue that he hoped, and usually Mitch McConnell got the credit.)

He Canada Goose sale can walk on land now, but he is pretty sure he could do that before.

Some mornings he looks in the mirror and wonders whether it was worth it, just to increase the Canada Goose online deficit.

Sometimes he is almost too afraid to voice the thought aloud Canada Goose Jackets he thinks that increasing the deficit was not always canada goose store his cherished wish. That it was something different. Something to do canada goose clearance sale with Jack Kemp, maybe.

Tax cuts werea canada goose outlet wish, and entitlement reform, and there must have been a third thing. To see Greg Gianforte seated in the House after he body canada goose outlet jackets slammed a reporter? No.

Tostand behind a president who spouted racism about “shithole countries”and equated the canadian goose jacket white nationalists at Charlottesville with those who protested them? To allow President Trump cheap Canada Goose to fill his White House with family members and conflicts of interest leagues deep and Canada Goose Outlet fathoms wide? To support a man who never released his tax returns?

At leastRyan managed to preserve the integrity of his beloved Republican Party, a party of ideas, not of people who are banned from malls and want to do unspeakable things canada goose outlet in usa to schoolchildren in the name canada goose outlet uk of the Second canada goose outlet toronto factory Amendment. He has canada goose ca canada goose outlet online uk lost himself, maybe, but he has protectedhis party’s image as a group canada goose outlet parka of people who canada goose factory sale were united by something canada goose Canada Goose Online jacket outlet more than greed or identity. And at least the majority has been preserved.

Why does he hear laughter? Is none of this Canada Goose Parka true? Has there been canada goose outlet online some horrible mistake?

He has sacrificed so many big, beautiful ideas canada goose outlet shop the notionthat thereare things more sacred than party loyalty? That you should canada goose coats on sale persuade people, not insult them? That thereare thingsyou shouldnot tolerate just to win some sort of hollow victoryor get canada goose outlet nyc the chance to maybe saw the government safety net out frombeneath an elderly lady? canada goose uk black friday canada goose outlet sale (AndRyan has not even gotten the opportunity to do that.)He must have received something truly remarkable in return.

The Devil at least makes a point of giving you something you want in return. Trump has no such canada goose black friday sale scruples. He is happy to take your labor, for canada goose outlet new york city months, and then walk away, leaving you with a shattered reputation and an agreement with no cheap canada goose uk signature on it. Ryan may have given away his soul, but he has started to wonder, as Stormy Daniels canada goose uk shop did, whether Trump even bothered to sign his side of the thing official canada goose outlet.
