Paul Ryan and Marco Rubio Featured on "Finding Your Roots" Tonight

Hubs wandered in and out of the den practically demanding to know why I am watching one of my favorite programs being desecrated by the likes of Paul Ryan and Marco Rubio. Here is a recap of his comments:

At the end of the show, each participant is given a family history chart going back as far as the ancestry can be traced. Hubs said of Paul Ryan, "I hope his earliest ancestor is listed as Satan." On Marco Rubio, "I just know he's got slave owners in his ancestry." This was confirmed later on in the program. Hubs remarked, "That bastard Rubio would still own slaves if he could."

On the big reveal of Paul Ryan's Jewish ancestry, Hubs smirked and said, "I'm going to make him a yarmulke that says schmuck." along with "Oy vey! What did it have to be Paul Ryan? Why couldn't it be Beto?" and since I'm doing a bit of research into Hubs' family history (Hubs family fled pogroms in Russia) , "If you find out I'm related to Paul Ryan, don't tell me."

1. Lol!

I just watched the Princess Margaret documentary on MPT2 and saw a commercial for it. Had a few choice words, too, but not as good as your hubby's.

5. Tulsi Gabbard was the third guest.

I wasn't interested enough in Tulsi to put up with the other two.

4. I love Henry Louis Gates

He so quietly showed them their immigrant roots and made the point that they were here because their ancestors left poverty and sought better lives for their children... he wove their stories and placed their hypocrisy before them. Not my favorite episode but Gates let them sit there and be impressed by their ancestors while their own words directly contradicted what they have said about immigration.
