Doll Eyed Dolt Paul Ryan As Robo-rMoney VP?
That Mitt Romney would choose -- or would be strong-armed by the Teahadis into accepting -- Medicare couponizing Ayn Rand fan Paul Ryan as his VP seems so flabbergastingly nonsensical that I feel sure it has to be a head-fake even as I hear a ringing chorus of pundits assuring everybody the fix is in. But I am hoping against hope the rumors are true -- not only because it makes an Obama landslide with the coattails to retain the Senate and regain the House incomparably more likely, but because it makes marginally more likely that we will be treated sometime soon to an 80s style training montage in which Paul Ryan helps make Mitt Romney the most studly robot evah.
