We like him with the face hair, even though he done shaved it.

[wonkbar]<a href=""></a>[/wonkbar]As America has absorbed the prospect of being presidented by Donald J. Trump or Hillary R. Clinton or one of the other candidates, our nation has been weeping and wailing and begging Paul D. Ryan (the "D" stands for "Do you even lift, bro?") to please ride in on a white horse and heal us, by being our president. HAHA JUST KIDDING, that's not happening, but some Republicans have been kvetching and hee-hawing about how maybe if there is a brokered GOP convention, Ryan could be the one to save the Republican party forever and ever, amen.

There have been rumors of secret donor meetings! And rumors of how he's running a "parallel campaign"! And there was that thing that sort of looked like a campaign video, which made people kinda ????

But oh bother, looks like he's denying it again:

House Speaker Paul Ryan will hold a news conference Tuesday afternoon to again definitively rule out a White House bid this year, according to an aide.

Ryan will appear at the Republican National Committee's headquarters on Capitol Hill Tuesday at 3:15 p.m.

MMHMM OK ANYWAY, GO BACK TO WHAT YOU WERE DOING, AMERICA. Probably throwing away all the panties you messed up getting 'scited about how maybe Paul Ryan would run for president.

You could have had this, America.

Hey, but chin up, America! Maybe Paul Ryan is lying AGAIN and he won't say that at his presser at all. Because remember how he said eleventythousand times that he didn't want to be speaker of the House, but then he was like "OK I will throw my legs in the air and be your speaker"? Maybe that is happening here and Paul Ryan will make sweet love to U.S. America and kiss it on the mouth, with either his bearded face or his shaved boy face, whichever America prefers!

ON THE OTHER HAND, he has all these "ideas" for what he wants to do as speaker, and he hasn't done them all yet.

[wonkbar]<a href=""></a>[/wonkbar]ON THE OTHER OTHER HAND, maybe he will finally get fed up with that terrible mean racist man Donald Trump, and step forward to be the non-racist, non-bigot candidate the GOP is just dying to have, because they're all such nice people.

ON THE FOURTH OR SIXTIETH OTHER HAND, maybe this article is right and he is not running for president this year, but in 2020 instead, after Donald Trump loses and Hillary wins in 2016. By 2020, America will probably be tired of Huma being the lesbian first lady and the way Hillary The Dictator forces all the schoolchildren to start every day by pledging allegiance to Benghazi, yeah?

Yeah that is probably actually what is happening, now that we think about it. Vote Paul Ryan in 2020, for the Republican president of capitalism and free market sexxxytime!

'Bella" by Wonkette Operative 'IdiokraticSubpoenaKommissar'

Sunday already, which means a substantial portion of US America is preparing to be astonished/heartbroken/outraged by the series finale of that show with the dragons, while another portion is just going to stay off Twitter for three days because nothing will make any sense. Yr Dok Zoom tends to come very late to trendy things, so get ready for our own thoughts on the gamy thrones show sometime in about 2023, or never. But we'd be glad to tell you just how much we enjoy the brilliance and humanity of the Cartoon Network series "Steven Universe," which debuted in 2013 and we started bingeing on the Hulu last month, late again.

Hell, we still want to talk about that one Mrs Landingham episode of "The West Wing," which we first watched years after it aired (We finally bought our new used car yesterday, and know one thing: don't drive over to the White House to show it off to President Bartlet). We might even get around to reading Infinite Jest someday. We hear it has something to do with a superhero team and a guy named Thanos. So hey, let's talk about culture and missing out and patching together some knowledge of what's happening anyway.

Get Me Roger Stone

Roger Stone, his wife would like you to know, is broke. And he is not dealing with it well. Once in khaki suits, gee, he looked swell, full of that yankee-doodle-dee-dum, but now no one calls him Al anymore and he has to stand on a street corner singing "Brother Can You Spare A Dime?"

Yesterday, the conservative but also kind of Never Trumper site The Bulwark revealed the details of a grifty "fundraising" plea sent out by Stone's wife Nydia, begging supporters to give money to the Stones in order to help them keep up the lifestyle to which they have become accustomed.

It was titled "I am embarrassed to write this."

"Dear Friend," begins the missive. "My husband and I have an urgent new problem and we need your help. I told my husband I was going to write you, one of his most valued supporters. I am embarrassed to write this, but I must."

"Mrs. Roger Stone" tells a tale of woe: FBI agents swooping in on them at the crack of dawn to arrest her husband, a subsequent "fake news" feeding frenzy causing friends and fans to abandon the Stones.

"He laid off all our consultants, contractors and employees, and we have 'pulled in our belts' like so many Americans in 'tight times,'" she wrote, sounding for all the world like a plucky working-class patriot, not the wife of a man who made and lost his fortune lying in the service of power.

She should have been more embarrassed.
