The Ballad Of Brave Sir Ryan

As Democrat Tim Ryan ducks under his desk (where’s finding plenty of company at the moment, curiously enough), Will Collier channels his inner Python:

The Ballad of Brave Sir Ryan

Bravely bold Sir Ryan, rode forth from Washington
He was not afraid to meet, oh brave Sir Ryan
He was not at all afraid to be criticized in nasty ways,
Brave brave brave brave Sir Ryan

He was not in the least bit scared to be scolded to a pulp
or to have his funds dry up and his polling broken
To have his excuses scoffed and his approval burned away
and his press releases all hacked and mangled, Brave Sir Ryan

His talking points bashed in and his favorables cut out
and his staff removed and his budget unplugged
and his office lost and his career ended and his Congressional Pension–

“Thats enough music for now lads, looks like there’s dirty work afoot”


See you in November, fellas…
