I would like to begin the week by offering my thanks to Mitt Romney for choosing Paul Ryan as his running mate. Even though most of us are suffering from fatigue from the numbing drone of the campaign, Ryan does invite our attention with wit, intrigue and irony. In his most recent appearance on Fox News, which is where the Comeback to Bush Team goes to have its gas tank filled, Ryan spun a question from host Chris Wallace, who asked for the math on how the Romney tax plan would remain revenue-neutral while cutting taxes.
Ryan was ready for it: "I don't have the..It would take me too long to go through all of the math."
That item was posted by the Huffington Post in a list of "most popular" notes telling us that Justin Bieber puked on stage; a magazine ran a photo of Kate Middleton bottomless; and Arnie Schwarzenegger admitted to an affair with Brigitte Nielsen.
That's pretty strong competition, don't you think, but Ryan proved to be worthy of the challenge.
