Well, I called it correctly yesterday: Joe Biden destroyed the well packaged, but vacuous stuffed suit that was Paul Ryan last night. People finally started to see the real Paul Ryan- shallow, callow and not ready for prime time.
Finally, someone has called Paul Ryan to task and tried to make him answer for his glib, destructive positions with real facts and force him to step out from behind the smoke and mirrors that the GOP uses to disguise the very bad impacts of their very bad ideas.
And most of these very bad ideas come directly from Paul Ryan-with an assist from Ayn Rand.
Joe Biden really took him to task like the differential DC media always fails to do…
My favorite comment came from Bill Maher:
“9-1-1 ? There is an old man beating a child on my TV.”
Now, I’m sure the Conservatives will start blaming Martha Raddatz, the moderator, and everyone else in the media like they normally do when someone doesn’t let them get away with their tricks and lies…
There is a great piece from Charles Pierce at Esquire.com this morning everyone should read. Here is a brief excerpt and a link to the full article:
For years, Paul Ryan has been the shining champion of some really terrible ideas, and of a dystopian vision of the political commonwealth in which the poor starve and the elderly die ghastly, impoverished deaths, while all the essential elements of a permanent American oligarchy were put in place. This has garnered him loving notices from a lot of people who should have known better. The ideas he could explain were bad enough, but the profound ignorance he displayed on Thursday night on a number of important questions, including when and where the United States might wind up going to war next, and his blithe dismissal of any demand that he be specific about where he and his running mate are planning to take the country generally, was so positively terrifying that it calls into question Romney’s judgment for putting this unqualified greenhorn on the ticket at all. Joe Biden laughed at him? Of course, he did. The only other option was to hand him a participation ribbon and take him to Burger King for lunch.
You know what’s the difference between Sarah Palin and Paul Ryan?
