    Scientific notation would probably be necessary.

    On a somewhat related note. Added another word to my Trumpian vocabulary:

    I wonder how many airplane mechanics understand scientific notation?

    Order of magnitude would be sufficient.

    I doubt it. It will take more than 2 years for the treason stench to wash off, plus I'm a serious skeptic that Ryan has the balls to primary a sitting "republican" president*. He set fire to the house and just doesn't want to live in the ashes. 10 or 15 years down the road, maybe.

    :tinfoil: time:

    Or alternately;
    He's about to be implicated. Remember the whole "keep it in the family" thing? Don't forget also, the RNC was most likely hacked as well, as the DNC, yet none of that has ever surfaced.

    That said, if true, Ryan is a complicit, and probably a traitor.

    TINFOIL EDIT: Sweet baby Jesus, I can't believe I forgot about this, but Cohen, Trumps lawyer, who got no-knocked by every law enforcement agency that exists the other day, was Deputy Finance Chairman of the RNC, under probable rapist and serial sex abuser Steve Wynn. The RNC is dirty, has taken Russian money and is compromised. Ryan knows it, Cohen knows it, and now Mueller knows it. Ryan is getting out while he can. :tinfoil:

    As Stephen Colbert said,

    "Nothing satisfies you [reporters]... everybody asks for personnel changes, so the White House has personnel changes. And then you write, 'oh, they're just rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic.' First of all, that is a terrible metaphor. This administration is not sinking, this administration is soaring! If anything, they are rearranging the deck chairs on the Hindenburg!""

    Random bar I was in tonight had a quiz going on.

    One of the teams was called,
    "Who's going to fuck all the poor people when Paul Ryan is gone?"

    Yeah, unfortunately inbreeding is still a problem in some parts of the South.
