    Paul Ryan Still Can’t Put Together a Good Charity Photo Op

    After Republican Vice-Presidential candidate Paul Ryan was accused of forcing his way into a charity soup kitchen and doing nothing¬†two weeks ago, you’d think he’d be a little more careful when it comes to photo ops, especially when his campaign is in charge of the charity event. And yet!

    In Hudson, the packing was proceeding too quickly, and the supporters wearing red “Team Wisconsin” t-shirts were given the order to slow down and then to stop to be sure there were still goods to be packed when Ryan entered.

    One by one the boxes were filled and loaded into a waiting U-Haul, and then they stopped to wait for the candidate.

    Guys, the point of the photo op is make Ryan look like a helpful, down-to-earth guy pitching in where he’s needed. When he’s not needed — and when the press can tell he’s not needed — it doesn’t work. Maybe just stop trying to force your Randian vice-presidential candidate to do charity work when it clearly doesn’t make sense to him? Or maybe stop pretending your campaign events are charity drives.
