So… Paul Ryan, I guess?
Mitt Romney has supposedly chosen Paul Ryan as his vice-presidential nominee, though this has yet to be confirmed by Romney. Ryan, a Wisconsin representative, is best known for his enthusiasm for vague, mathematically implausible budgets and his plan to dismantle the existing Medicare system. The fact that some will consider the demonstrable facts in the previous paragraph to be partisan attacks is an indication of how divorced from empirical reality this campaign has gotten. But for whatever reason, Romney has decided to double down on the faintly-creepy rich white guy thing. Presumably Mr. Burns from The Simpsons and Mr. Potter from It’s A Wonderful Life were unavailable.
Do you think this choice will revitalize Romney’s flagging campaign, or has he just conceded the election? Let us know in comments.
