The Paul Ryan Photo Shoot That Will Haunt You Forever

Posted by on Thu, Oct 11, 2012 at 2:51 PM

I thought this Paul Ryan workout photo shoot, specifically the one with the dopey smile and the red hat, would be the worst thing I saw all day. And then someone animated it and everything got worse. Luckily, Mansplaining Ryan is a delightful—and very funny—new Tumblr that takes some of the edge off these terrible photos.

A red baseball cap worn backwards. Is he running for vice-president of Limp Bizkit?

The red means Republican. But it looks more like Alvin & the Chipmunks.

Red may mean Republican, but in some circles a cap worn backwards means "I give oral" (to men). Otherwise known as French Active.

In other circles it means "I am a frat douche."

A frat douche who dresses like a kindergartener. I just don't see how someone could be such a dork.

He looks so bloody uncomfortable in those pictures, it's awkward. He couldn't look any more out of place if he was wearing a gimp mask and assless chaps at Folsom Street Fair.

When I saw that on Facebook, I assumed it was photoshopped. Fucking priceless.

This is all so childish. I don't know who is worse, the American public, the media, Ryan, everyone and their dog. America has well heeled rich people running for office, to govern them and this is the silly idiocy American politics has become. No wonder they hate us.

I have always understood the backwards hat came out of the gay community in SF. It was a sign the wearer was willing to perform sexual favors. Just sayin

Does he have smile that is not set at "slimy car salesman?"

One would think someone would have taught him better by now. It is almost as bad as Cheney's "I am going to kill you" smirk.
