According to an article in The Washington Post:
“The head of a northeast Ohio charity says that the Romney campaign last week ‘ramrodded their way’ into the group’s Youngstown soup kitchen so that GOP vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan could get his picture taken washing dishes in the dining hall.”
There was just one problem.
“The food had already been served, the patrons had left, and the hall had been cleaned.”
In other words, Ryan set to work scrubbing already clean dishes, mainly so the cameras there could capture his good works.
If he keeps on bizarrely washing clean dishes, Ryan might find that his biceps–and popularity–will start sagging.
