I keep wanting to call him The Walrus for some reason...

If only to distinguish him from those other guys named "Paul."

Wandering around at The alt Mines today it seemed that, every time I was near either a break room or an operations center, they all had CNN running a scary banner shrieking about "Doubling Down in the War on The Poor!!!1!" or somesuch propaganda for His Imperial Majesty.

Lots of folks not happy.  He's a politician, he's made votes they don't like.

Hell, he's a politician, he's automatically untrustworthy.


I collected a metric buttload of links.  In no particular order:

“The Ryan pick wasn’t the safest one Mr. Romney could have made—not by a long shot. But as the author of the budget plan that most clearly delineates the view of limited government that most Republicans hold, and with more specificity and crystalline explanation than most can muster, Mr. Ryan best guarantees the country will get the kind of philosophical debate worthy of a presidential campaign.”

It's hard to get worked up over Romney settling on Ryan. I mean... Romney being Romney, he'll f/l/i/p/f/l/o/p evolve a new VP pick by next Wednesday.

I like Ryan's choice in guns and hunting/shooting, it gives me a hopey and changey feeling all over, and his resume fills a big gap in Mitt's strategy agenda.
