Paul Ryan predicts his face will be a problem during tonight’s State of the Union address.

As if the saga of Ryan’s “Muslim beard” wasn’t enough facial intrigue for one visage, the speaker of the House is apparently struggling to prepare his countenance for tonight’s State of the Union address, according to CNN:

Later on, Ryan confirmed CNN’s reporting with a tweet of his own.

The man has a point: sometimes you just disagree so fervently with an idea you become visibly nauseated, grimace like a Tolkien orc, or scrunch up fearsomely as you grow redder and redder. As for me, I imagine my face will look like the cover of A Little Life for the duration of the address and response.
