Chris to Ryan: Cool It!
Ryan's tweets apparently stirred up enough trouble to merit Ryan a phone call from Senator McDaniel: "In fact, he called me last night and, in his kind way, told me to pipe down." When a politician distinguished in part by his throwing Molotov cocktails such as accusing Cindy Hyde-Smith of not supporting the Second Amendment, has to tell Ryan Walters to "pipe down" however kindly, you know Ryan has made some pretty deep doo-doo.
Ryan's piece this morning is typical Ryan:
Yesterday, the Roger Wicker campaign released two new attack ads aimed at Senator McDaniel. I found the ads to be pathetic, distasteful, and uncalled for. And, yes, they made me quite angry. McDaniel has already switched races, although he had not officially taken his name out of contention, an action he took on Wednesday. But Wicker’s despicable “stink tank” saw fit to continue to smear him. And I’m not sure as to the real reason why. Could it be to lift Cindy Hyde-Smith’s floundering candidacy? That in itself is pathetic!
