Paul Ryan's soup kitchen photo-op

You've all seen the staged photo of Paul Ryan allegedly washing a pot at a soup kitchen. At Think Progress this morning, there's a post that reveals the soup kitchen's side of things. Here's a quote from the president of the Mahoning County St. Vincent De Paul Society, Brian J. Antal:
"They showed up there and they did not have permission. They got one of the volunteers to open up the doors… The photo-op they did wasn’t even accurate. He did nothing. He just came in here to get his picture taken at the dining hall.”
That's Paul Ryan, a made-up guy. Rumor has it the pots were already clean. It was strictly a photo-op. It's amazing that they didn't realize they should, you know, work at the soup kitchen for a few hours. But no. Image is all to these people.
