No, seriously. It’s an actual headline at First Read at NBC News: “Ryan did wash dirty dishes during soup kitchen visit.”

This is news, to the lapdogs on Team Obama. As Twitchy reported, lapdogs in the media have been breathlessly reporting on Paul Ryan’s Dish-Gate scandal.

You know, because there is no real news going on in the world or anything. Today, they finally get to the bottom of it. Days late, natch.

The opening paragraph:

LYNCHBURG, VA — Amid questions and criticisms related to Paul Ryan’s visit this weekend to an Ohio soup kitchen, the charity’s president said the Republican vice presidential candidate did, in fact, scrub dirty dishes though his visit wasn’t officially sanctioned.

Amid questions by whom? You, lapdogs. Only you. Note, it’s still super nefarious and all. Where was his official sanction? WHERE?

All the details, tweeted Mike O’Brien! You mean the ones that were clearly evident from the photos? Also, you are worthless idjits. Just want to give you a little heads up there; we are givers and all. So are these Twitter users.

We know, truth is hard. But, seriously, lapdogs: Seek help.

  • kbielefe

    I’m going to have to use that excuse with my wife. Sorry honey, I can’t wash the dishes without official sanction.

  • Aestro

    Twitchy, in second piece on Ryan washing dishes, complains about coverage of Ryan washing dishes.

    • SuperFash

      You are an idiot-normally I detest name calling, but you take the cake! This 2nd piece exposes NBC for trivial news reporting as they continue to blanket Obama’s glaring errors in foreign policy matters. (Obama:Vegas, baby!)

      • John (it true me am)

        Not to mention Twitchy is specifically for covering the trials and tribulations of a single social media website, and not a general news site.

      That ‘BOOM’ sound you hear is the point of this article zipping over your head as it approaches Mach 1.

      • PennyRobinsonFanClub

        That’s like , the speed of light, right?

  • redheadgrl

    I’m so glad the media is all over #dishgate instead of Benghazi. That’s some American priorities right there.

    • Riley iCarly Madison

      hey moron. it makes your guy look FAKE and he has already lied. Meanwhile, obama DID CALL benghazi an “Act of terror” afterwards

      You’re blowing up NOTHING. u politicizing a tragedy. get a grip

      • redheadgrl

        Please go back to your less mature discussion boards where it’s kinda cool to call people names for having different opinions. I don’t play that game.

        Mr. Obama referenced “acts of terror” in the Rose Garden speech, however, he and his administration blamed the attack on a YouTube video for 2 weeks after the incident, denying a planned attack on our consulates and embassies in the ME on the anniversary of 9/11.

        I don’t think 4 Americans, working on behalf of the government, getting killed in their workplace is “blowing up NOTHING.” I actually think it’s a big deal. And the media should be focusing on the lack of security our men were provided after several requests to Washington for more, as well as the cover-up by administration officials in the aftermath of this tragedy.

        Also, all politicians stop for photo-ops, it’s par for the course, just like kissing the proverbial baby. Did you happen to see the great photo-op of Mr. Obama delivering pizzas to his campaign workers? Oh, so noble.

        If you want to play here on this discussion board, you may want to put on your big boy pants and have logical, rational discussions without going off on people and calling names. It weakens your argument.

  • Fire and Adjust!

    “You didn’t build that”……………”You didn’t clean that”……………… For all their screaming about what other people “don’t do” I’d like to see Obama and his lap dogs run a campaign on what Obama HAS done, instead of hiding from what HE didn’t do………

    improve the economy
    lower the debt
    set a budget
    improve foreign relations
    strengthen American security
    unify the country
    run a transparent administration
    tell the truth
    protect American ambassadors
    lower my family’s tax burden
    improve cost of living
    lower the price of gas
    increase (REAL) employment
    decrease government dependence
    win a debate
    etc. etc. etc…

    Obama……….you didn’t do that

    • Riley iCarly Madison

      good one. take it out of context, ignore romney’s lies.

  • civet

    Just perused the comments at the NBC article. The desperation with which the libs are grasping at this story is hilarious and pathetic. I would almost think the whole story, comments included, was parody but the folks at the Onion are only human. The comedy we’re dealing with here is otherworldly.

    It’s a little sad to see the left reduced to this hysteria. Mostly funny, but a little sad.

  • cscape

    Folks….. gird yourselves….. After the election, we will need to put up with a daily torrent of ridiculously idiotic non-story, breaking news crap from the elite media, trying to paint PRESIDENT Romney and VICE PRESIDENT Ryan in an unfavorable light

    • Riley iCarly Madison

      rediculous? like benghazigate? lol. i bet right wingers named this dishgate.

      • redheadgrl

        It’s interesting that you think investigating what happened to our embassies on 9/11/2012 is “rediculous”. For your information, this is the first Ambassador that has been murdered since 1979. Also, there were several attacks on our embassies in the ME that day and the following days: Egypt, Tunisia, Libya, and Morocco to name a few. It saddens me that Americans either think it’s ok, or just don’t care, that our embassies, and the people who work there, are under attack, not caring why this is going on. Instead they prefer to focus on pictures of dish washing and “binders of women”.

  • Vin Mavaro

    One wonders why the Dems bring this up in the first place. I believe it is because they know they cannot win on effectiveness and efficiency They have to try to win on compassion, feelings, and fairness. If Ryan is not an uncaring monster out only for a photo op they lose.

    • Riley iCarly Madison

      maybe cuz it proves he”s FAKE?

      • MyFrontPorch

        So it’s a fake meme to prove that Ryan is a fake? Are we back to “Fake but Accurate” now?

  • Maria

    The majority of Liberals truly are without shame and conscience. The Obama Administration is embroiled in a few huge scandals that need to be cracked wide open and the American People made aware of, yet the Lame Stream Media reports on..dishes? What?

    • Riley iCarly Madison

      without shame? You people are politiizng the tragedy in benghazi. you’re an idiot. im changing my vote because of what you people have been saying or doing.

      • redheadgrl

        Right. You seem like a conservative from your posts. I’m sure it was a tough decision for you to change your vote from D to D.

      • Maria

        I don’t think you intended on voting for Romney in the first place. Calling me an idiot? Wow, that makes you mature. Typical Liberal.

        Well if The Right didn’t talk about Benghazi, no one would. Lefties want to sweep it under the rug as if it never happened, as if Amb. Chris Stevens and three others never were killed because of Obama’s lack of attending his Intell briefings. THAT is heartless there. It’s people like you who make me glad I’m not an immoral Liberal, and make sure I never vote Democrat ever.

        @redheadgrl – Yeah that’s so hard to go from voting for Obama to voting for Obama. ;-P Good one!

  • PennyRobinsonFanClub

    Oooohhhhhh! He didn’t say “May I?”!

  • LordElrond09

    Because the media consists of the old style communists a la Pravda, the kind that McCarthy was accurately pointing fingers at.

  • J.N. Ashby

    If that’s pandering or whatever, is delivering pizzas not the same thing?

  • Mr. Shy

    The left wing-controlled media’s beloved Con Artist in Chief was exposed to the world in debate #1, and it will be a repeat performance again tonight. And the NYTimes, WashPost, CNN, MSDNC, et al — the whole corrupt, criminal media cabal — can do all the cartwheels they want for their radical commie.

    WARNING: BEVERAGE ALERT… video could be dangerous to your monitor….

    I guess it was some unlilateral dish washing…

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    The people who run that shelter are jerks. All they did was badmouth Ryan to the press after he left. They should be thankful Ryan put them on the map.
