I love so many things about this ?#?NoBillNoBreak? sit-in, but the thing I love the most is John Lewis’ facial expression. He has Resting Protest Face. He doesn’t give a shit about your guns, or your parliamentary procedures, or your C-SPAN cameras. He’s heard you want to put him on Periscope but he’s not sure he gives a shit about that either. He’s like “Did you see Selma? You remember the John Lewis character? That was me. John ‘I asked for and received an apology from the Klan’ Lewis.” He is the human personification of the expression “You tried it.” He most definitely doesn’t give a shit about Paul Ryan. When asked for comment about how Paul Ryan compared to political foes he’s encountered in the past, Lewis thought for a second and replied “He doesn’t have the range.” John “Freedom Rider” Lewis has an honorary doctorate in sitting. Don’t come for him unless he sends for you.
My favorite: “He is the human personification of the expression ‘You tried it.’”
“He doesn’t have the range” is so brutal in its dismissiveness.
