Soul Man

But he sold it to the devil:
“For the record, because he’s made these accusations: Do you have a soul?” Weber asked.

“Yes,” Ryan replied with a chuckle. “I’ll give you my priest’s cellphone where you can call him and ask him.”

Ryan said Nehlen’s campaign is an “out of state campaign” that was “mouthing these kinds of screeds,” comparing it to the same type of campaign used to unsuccessfully recall Gov. Scott Walker.

“They are not pushing conservatism, they call this ‘alt-conservatism’ — I don’t even know what this … have you heard of this alt-conservatism?” he asked Weber.

“I have, and it’s just goofy and it’s tied into, often times, like white supremacists groups and fringe groups, it’s really a nasty virulent strain of something, it’s not conservatism,” Weber replied.

“That’s right,” Ryan continued. “It’s a nasty virulent strain of something, I don’t even know what it is other than it isn’t us, it isn’t what we believe in. And it’s not what the Constitution says and it’s not what conservatives, particularly Wisconsin conservatives, believe in.”
One could ask Ryan what he believes in, but even he doesn't seem to know...
