Paul Ryan Coronation Today. Make That ‘Paul D. Ryan.’

Paul Ryan Coronation Today. Make That 'Paul D. Ryan.'

After refusing the crown three times, like Caesar, Rep. Paul Ryan (R, WI-1) accepted it, along with the sable, sceptre and orb, and was anointed as Speaker of the House of Representatives. Henceforth, he shall be known as “Speaker Paul D. Ryan.”

Okay, he’s not Emperor, but the GOP’s Tea Party and Freedom Caucus loons resent the imperial powers invested in the office by Newt Gingrich while he was Speaker.
