St. Nick on Paul of Ryan

Nicholas Kristof is always worth reading.

His parody of Jesus handling Paul Ryan is hilarious.

Paul explains the parable of the Good Samaritan by praising the first two men who look at the wounded traveler, concluding

"So it’s an act of mercy for the rich man to hurry on and ignore the robbery victim.”

Here's another excerpt:

[Ryan speaking} "But let’s drop this bleeding heart nonsense about health care as a human right, and see it as a financial opportunity to reward investors. In this partnership, 62 percent of the benefits would go to the top 0.6 percent — perfect for a health care plan.”
Jesus turned to Pious Paul on his left and said: “Be gone! For I was hungry and you gave me no food; I was thirsty, and you gave me no drink; and I was sick, and you did not help me.”
