|Uniquely able to make Pence look capable.|

A modest question. What critique can one have over the wise and fair words of the NYT editorial board? Well, a word search done on this lengthy an item about Paul Ryan where the words "mean" and "spiteful" are absent begs questioning. They miss an essence that way. (Indirection and understatement can be lost on some less sophisticated eyes or ears.)
At least FOX has his back, something about which his friend Trump tweeted of hours in advance of FOX broadcasting:
Earlier Saturday, Trump took to Twitter to urge his followers to tune into Pirro’s show, saying: “Watch @JudgeJeanine on @FoxNews tonight at 9:00 P.M.”
Caesar had about as sound a backup cast. Ryan's personality was/is his Rubicon.
UPDATE: So egregious a personality that Putin did not stoop to bother with him? I.e., so much himself, ever so, to be unable to gin up even a modest little Russian love and attention? Begging next an answer, were Ryan to step aside, who'd have the daunting litmus task then of making Pence look okay, and not jointly dumb, mean spirited and unstable?
