Hey, Paul Ryan — F#@k You!

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan is the fucking worst. That ain't news. But here he is being the worst once again, in one of the worstest of worst ways:
After Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) asked for prayers for the victims of the mass shooting at a church in Texas on Sunday in a tweet, he was met with widespread criticism from what he called the "secular left," who claimed the latest mass shooting was Republicans' fault for not budging on gun control policy.

..."It is the right thing to do in moments like this because, you know what? Prayer works," he said. "And I know you believe that and I believe that and when you hear the secular left doing this thing, no wonder you have so much polarization and disunity in this country when people think like that."
He also asserted that "people who do not have faith don't understand faith."

Yeah. That's the real problem here. That my atheist ass doesn't "understand faith." Not that his faith-ful ass is exploiting religious belief to cover for his deadly inaction on guns and catastrophic failure of leadership.

Oh, dear. Was that uncivil of me? GOOD.
