This collective shudder of the spine does nothing but make the purple blue. Tiberius selects Caligula as his running mate.
Oh even more nerdily, it's like making a Ventrue your Seneschal.

Can we just admit that the economy tanked because we let the wealthy take the wheel for the last 12 years? Can we acknowledge that many wealthy people are not producers but simply owners who possess rather than create? Can we admit that class warfare is embodied by the purchase of the American government by corporate interest?
Explain to me how Paul Ryan or any hardline conservative would ever want to rehabilitate the economy when it serves them a lot more to keep scales tipped so largely in their favor?
The entire thing was made possible by a vigorous and very successful propaganda campaign. A lot of people in this country still believe absolute childish falsehoods about the credit crisis and the housing bust and the current state of the American economy.
So, no one will ever admit anything. For most, they aren't lying any more. They actually believe it.
If they know the truth and are still willing to rob from an economy that is already tilted heavily in their favor, then their morality is already monstrous and corrupt beyond redemption.
At the risk of sounding over the top, electing Romney to the presidency is like marrying your rapist to hide the shame.

Hoooooooooooooooooooooly fucking shit this guy now the GOP VP candidate.
P.S. We are so fucked
um actually this may help Obama win, although ultimately yeah, we are all fucked, and we all die alone in the end. Cool?
The only thing Ryan is famous for is his budget plans, which are not only radically conservative by also completely unrealistic. The numbers simply do not add up.
Increased scrutiny of these plans, which have been publicly supported by both Romney and the vast majority of congressional Republicans, will probably be more damaging to them than helpful.
There's no cause for alarm. This Ryan would have a better shot if he ran, and one day he will. Obama's got the electoral college locked up. Romney has to win every single state he's strong in now AND capture every single swing state AND some of the ones that are trending Obama right now to win. Things may change, but I don't think Romney can get there from here.
Ryan's budget destroys Medicare. With this move Romney just gave Obama everybody who gets that check. And every boomer looking ahead a few years.
It's just terrifying that we've reached the point where someone like this even makes the first cut in the VP selection process.
Plus the fact that there's even the slightest chance he'll win. Remember the absolute terror you felt at the thought of Sarah Palin reaching the White House?
oh we reached that point decades ago
As idiotic as this may seem, after what happened in 2000 I am not assuming anything positive regarding our ability as a country to vote for things that won't immediately turn around and give us a poisonous bite as a thank-you.

Five stars for this hellish mixture of evil and douchery.

So the republican party literally learned nothing from choosing Palin in '08.
|glendower - 2012-08-11 |
Yeah, all those tax-dollar funded roads, libraries, and free public schools are infringing on my liberty. I would be much more free if I just existed like a wild beast in the woods.
BTW, what are you talking about Caminante? Ryan is nothing like Air-head Pailin. Ryan is basically a member of the GOP's tiny intellectual class. As much as I hate Ryan's ideology, I admire Romney's decision to bring on a vp candidate who is about ideas rather than Palin-style douchebag soundbites. This will make for a more interesting election.
Uh, no. I'd rather have an empty headed monster than one with "big ideas".

Oh but wait, once Ryan actually had his official reader read something about Ayn Rand, he found out she was an atheist, and now he no longer is in love with her (or even like) and thinks all her philosophies are generally stupid and devoid of morals (except all the ones he's still supports) because The Bible.
MacGyver Style Bomb
Love the fact that a bunch of Jesuits at Georgetown called him out on his bullshit when he came to make a speech.
I'm sure it was soul-shattering, finding out that the woman he made sure to imagine laying there, looking up at him whenever he fucked his wife, was nothing more than a dirty, dirty atheist whore who took public assistance.
And then all the Ayn Rand succubus nightmares that followed...

BTW, did Ryan lose his father at a very early age? Wouldn't that make him eligible for Social Security survivors benefits or whatever it's called?
It could, but you have to be careful how you go after him. You can get on Rush Limbaugh's case for taking unemployment benefits for an extended period during his second marriage, because that's pure laziness. But when your dad dies and the government gives you survivor benefits, that is not laziness on your part, and anyone going after you has to be careful to not disparage you or the survivor benefits. About all that can be done is accuse Ryan of being an ingrate, unwilling to acknowledge that misfortunes happen and a decent society tries to help those who are visited by misfortune. Good luck cramming that into a three-second attack sound bite, though.

So it's definitely Paul Ryan, not Andrew Ryan? This isn't life imitating art is it?
