Paul Ryan: The Beltway Bubble's Most 'Serious' Man | Jason Linkins | Posted 10.14.2012 | Politics

If there's one word that's become associated with Wisconsin Representative and vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan over his long tenure in Washington, D.C., it is "serious." Ryan is credited, up and down, with being a "serious" man. His reputation for seriousness precedes him in every fresh encounter on Capitol Hill and every booking on Sunday morning's political chat shows. And more amazingly, that reputation lingers long after those encounters have ended, despite each new pile of evidence to the contrary. He's as pure a product as the Beltway Bubble has ever produced. Of course, the truth is that there's really not a nickel's worth of distinction between Ryan's worldview and the one espoused by Texas Governor and debate comedian Rick Perry.

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.

Paul Ryan: Grow Up

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.
