Profiles in Political Cowardice; Paul Ryan Edition

House Speaker Paul Ryan told fellow Republicans Monday he will no longer defend GOP nominee Donald Trump and will instead use the next 29 days to focus on preserving his party's hold on Congress.
The Waffling Wisconsin Weasel won't be bothered to take a stand. He'll try to cleave to the middle of the GOP road.

But there is no middle in this election. The GOP base will view this as yet another backstabbing from a Washington insider. Those opposed to Trump will see it as an act of political triangulation, which, in this instance, translates to "political cowardice".

For or against, Paul. Those are the choices.

So the question now is will the scorn of both sides be enough to keep enough Republicans from voting for the Janesville Jerk-Off to get rid of him?

I won't defend Trump's crap, either.

Doesn't mean I support Clinton 2.

Ryan thought Trump was just ducky when he thought there was a chance of Trump signing his budget into law. They already had their strategy laid out for overcoming a Democratic filibuster in the senate. Ryan, to whatever extent he is abandoning Trump, is doing so for Trump's high crime of losing the election. Decency, Paul Ryan? Please.
