THERE’S A SITE CALLED YIDDISH CURSES FOR REPUBLICAN JEWS
Well, of course there is. (Sample curse: “May you live to a hundred and twenty without Social Security or Medicare.” Or how about: “May the secretary your husband is schtupping depend on Planned Parenthood for her birth control.”)

PAUL RYAN’S ANA-GRANDMA
If you take the letters of author AYN RAND and move them around a little you get (tell me there is not something greater than coincidence operating here) AYN RAND AND RYAN. Ayn Rand is Paul Ryan’s spiritual anagram.
And if you’ve read Atlas Shrugged (which robust-memoried readers may recall I listened to on audible as I walked 120 miles), you will find Michael Kinsley’s send up . . . completely delicious. (“Paul Ryan laughed. He stood naked on top of the vice president’s desk in the Senate chamber, scanning the crowd of sniveling politicians below him. . . . It occurred to him, and not for the first time, that of all the men and women in this room, only he, Paul Ryan, had been selected for his current office by the president himself. The president. Ryan’s mind wandered as he thought about the only man who stood between him and absolute power. Mitt Romney was a weakling, Ryan thought — and not for the first time. He’s a man whose views can change. The thought filled Ryan with disgust. His own views were as solid as granite. They were the views of the only clear-thinking woman he had ever met: Ayn Rand. . . .“)
Barney Frank sums it up with this bumper sticker he had printed: “Vote Democratic: We’re not perfect but they’re nuts.”
