When people do find out what is in the Ryan budget, they mostly don't like it. But the American public shows an enormous ability (as always) to come to the wrong conclusion, as well. Who frames this issue best in the next month is going to win the election.

We made hamburgers at McDonald's. We were both altar boys and we remain practicing Catholics. And Paul Ryan and I both read Ayn Rand as teenagers and were captivated by her radical individualism. That, however, is where the similarities end.

Paul Ryan is a 70-year-old man trapped in the body of young man. He's the Benjamin Button of American politics and just as Brad Pitt's portrayal of the character came up short after clinching an Oscar nomination, Ryan's nomination for Vice President will suffer the same fate.

Instead of 6-, 7- and 8-year-olds asking the man behind the prize counter if they have enough tickets for a new yo-yo, the Ryan Medicare plan would have 70-, 80- and 90-year-olds asking their insurance company if they have enough vouchers for a hip replacement or heart catheterization.
