"Titillate the public." –Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell pic.twitter.com/CQ2kfxsjtC— Matt Fuller (@MEPFuller) January 14, 2016
House and Senate Republicans are in Baltimore for their annual retreat today, which explains why Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan got to break out their best Casual Friday wear on a Thursday. But it doesn’t explain why 45-year-old Paul Ryan looks exactly like a fussy 11-year-old whose mother dressed him up for church.
There was some talk on the internet recently about whether Paul Ryan’s new beard made him hot all of a sudden. I’m glad this photo finally puts that debate to rest. He looks like if you crossed the coolest people in the world with, well, a Republican from Wisconsin.
