Rep. Tim Ryan's Public Intoxication Case Dropped

Back in August, Rep. Tim Ryan reportedly visited a small Virginia town for a staff wedding -- whereupon he was arrested on public intoxication charges.

The case was thrown out in a Virginia court today, and Ryan spokesman Pat Lowry told The Washington Post that his boss wasn't intoxicated at the time of the arrest.

But no matter. The whole episode got the meme-generators over at the National Republican Congressional Committee to thinkin': what's Ryan's favorite song? And this is what they came up with (see below). We have two words: oh dear.

Simply reading the chorus to this blasted LMFAO song is enough to get entire thing stuck in my head, where it'll probably remain for the rest of the evening.
