Paul Ryan "soul searching" whether to retire. That shouldn't take long

A very shallow pool to search in.

3. When you're soul

wouldn't fill a thimble...well, you get my drift. Guess the Cowardly Ryan doesn't want to lose his next re-election bid bigly.

5. How can you search something that doesn't exist?

He doesn't have a soul.
Or a heart.

Just large pockets that need to be constantly filled.

6. Oh, I don't know.

When your soul is infinitesimally small, it could take some time to find.

11. I don't even think Indiana Jones could locate anything that remote.

He should be searching elsewhere for the answer, anyway. Retiring Republicans not leaving for reasons of indictments, arrests, or embarrassment usually have lucrative jobs waiting for them. I'm sure a top political commentator on Fox Noise makes several multiples of what a House Speaker makes.

Wouldn't it be ironic if Ryan left the House for Fox, and then got canned because Disney didn't want the embarrassment?

14. I have no clue.

I just saw a quick headline in passing, and was speculating. I guess, in retrospect, it would make sense that Murdoch would not give up Fox Noise. Selling stupidity to idiots must be one of the most lucrative gigs around these days.

Close to Yertle's compassion.

Greed and hatred are his sole emotions

23. I think that's part of it

I think he also knows he's going to get a big payday from whichever fellow souless oligarch Randian for doing whatever. And he won't have to deal with all the bs from the teabaggers, drumpf, etc.

30. This was my immediate thought as well. Political doublespeak for

My ass may very well be grass in this next election so I will float the rumor that I may be leaving on my own anyway.

He is soulless and devoid of humanity.

Although I guess better late than never could apply.

29. Translation: the GOP wants somebody more competent to be 2nd-in-line for the Presidency

Just... yanno... in case. Something. Um, happens. Maybe. Possibly.
