Speaker of the House, Wisconsin native, and permanent cheese-head haircut-haver Paul Ryan is in full on PR mode at the RNC this week. Though he’s in Ohio, delegates from all of the country are there and dammit, they expect to be pandered to. Ryan obliged:
As a Packers fan – or at the very least someone who has to support the Packers or people will turn on him – swinging a Terrible Towel for a bunch of Yinzers is a big deal. And when some Eagles fans yelled the team’s name at him, he went full, capital-P Politician:
“You guys are NFC. We [Steelers fans] will see you guys in the Super Bowl in January. AFC, NFC, Go Pack, and the other teams you guys like.”
I can’t guarantee Ryan’s party won’t be having an inauguration in January, but I can 100% guarantee that there won’t be an Eagles/Steelers Super Bowl this January – or February.
