Congressman Paul Ryan is Pierce’s “zombie-eyed granny-starver”

March 21, 2012 blogger, Charles P. Pierce, of The Politics Blog, has today referred to Congressman Paul Ryan as a “zombie-eyed granny-starver”. He uses the phrase five times in today’s post. And it’s not the first time, he used the phrase on his Esquire blog a few weeks ago, and last month and as once as early as last December. Each time used to describe Congressman Ryan.

For those unfamiliar with Pierce and his Political Blog, like me, you might also enjoy this recent Daily Kos piece about Pierce’s ability to turn phrase: “Charles Pierce, Jedi Write”

In today’s post, “Paul Ryan’s Budget Is a Cowardly Political Joke”, Pierce writes:

The only reason that the zombie-eyed granny-starver Paul Ryan gets to present his own federal budget

convince people that he was not your run-of-the-mill zombie-eyed, granny-starving, trickle-down Randian snake-oil salesman

He’s still a zombie-eyed granny-starver, but he pushes all the actual zombie-eyed granny-starving down the road a decade,

the piece de resistance of zombie-eyed granny-starving is what Ryan does to Medicare.

Two weeks ago, Pierce wrote in “Deal or No Deal”:

The zombie-eyed granny-starver in the woodpile here is Paul Ryan,

A commenter named John Witek responded:

“Zombie-eyed granny-starver” is so beautiful, I want to take it away for a weekend in Mendocino. I’m stealing it.

And in last month’s “Things In Politico That Make Me Want To Guzzle Antifreeze, Granny-Parts Edition”, he wrote:

Pity poor zombie-eyed granny-starver Paul Ryan.

maybe the zombie-eyed granny-starver watches different news than I do

And last December, Pierce wrote “Jeb Bush for President 2012“:

The op-ed is appalling on its face, and that’s not even to mention Jeb (!)’s affection for zombie-eyed granny starver Paul Ryan.

And before that in December, he wrote “Lyin’ Paul Ryan and the End of Medicare” with opening sentence:

Zombie-eyed granny-starver Paul Ryan of Wisconsin is having a tough year

To which a commenter, Judy Clay, responded:

Applauding “zombie-eyed granny starver”. Perfect, just perfect.
