Williams’ Appendix Calls for Immediate Withdraw From Republican Body

In what could be considered a blow for the State Assembly Candidate Ryan Gene Williams, Ryan’s appendix has called for an immediate withdraw from the Republican’s body. Williams is running for the 69th State Assembly seat against Jose Solorio.

“I know that some people are calling Ryan a moderate,” said Ryan’s appendix today in a press conference held in downtown Santa Ana. “But it’s really hard to follow the GOP reasoning. I mean, come on! How can you believe that the 8 years of prosperity our country witnessed in the late 90s was Reagan and Bush’s doing, but today’s gasoline prices are Clinton’s fault?”

Ryan’s appendix demanded to be removed from Ryan’s body. “I’ve already gotten big and red,” said the appendix. “If you refuse to remove me, I will burst. You’re likely to get a serious infection or maybe even die.”

Joking aside, Ryan Gene Williams is being treated for appendicitis this morning. He’s expected to recover. Best wishes to him and his liberal appendix.

    Is this the best we can do on the left? Mocking a medical emergency suffered by a political opponent is immature and demeaning. Please try not to make us look so shallow in the future. Thanks.

    Get a grip, the post was creative and light political humor. It was even closed by pointing out that it was a joke and wishing Ryan well. I’m pretty sure Ryan has a sense of humor and got a little laugh out of it. I just hope he didn’t bust any stitches. :)

    Get better soon Ryan, you’ve got to at least give Jose a run for his money. There is no political fun with a cakewalk election campaign.

    I can only second what Chris has said.

    Ryan is a friend. I talked to him yesterday morning right before his surgery and we joked on the telephone.

    If anyone reads this post and thinks that I’m mocking Ryan’s condition, or that I am “shallow” for posting the press release, I apologize.

    Just having fun with the day’s news.
