I'm glad he's not running again. But I gotta tell you about a probably un-pc thing we sometimes did. When Paul Ryan was sitting in the background behind one of Trump's shoulders, we would mute out the sound and just watch Ryan's face. I know it was probably one of those "Ya had to be there" things, but we laughed 'til we cried and our cheeks and tummys hurt.
He was trying to convey, subtly, by his studied attention and reactions, ACTING his part, and badly, at that, what he was feeling. It was quite distracting. And it really WAS funny,like Larry the Cable Guy used to say, "I'm sorry Lord, I shouldn't have said that. But that there's funny, I don't care who y'are, that's funny."
One night when my mother and I were watching Stone Phillips on some 10 PM ABC "News" Special, and had muted the sound out due to an incoming phone call. We kept watching with the sound off while she talked on the phone. She giggled, I giggled, laughing afresh with each bob-and-weave he made with his head as he spoke. Same reaction...laughed until we cried.
That's my silly bit of a tangential un-pc commentary about a person's looks, for which no one should be targeted, however, in the interests of a true, visceral understanding, I am saying to you: watch news-readers, reporters, politicians, and so on, with no sound on. It's actually quite a mood lightener and might even be a tad enlightening. But mostly, it's funny.
