Paul Ryan, Worse than Palin

by Russell's Rants

Here is a link to an opinion column that  I wrote on Paul Ryan after his nomination:

I tweeted it to @paulryanvp:

@paulryanvp, worse than Palin.

Got some funny comments, including:

Russell Allyn – You would think with your educational background that repeating falsehoods as fact (Palin can see Russia from her doorstep) along with the rest of your faux facts would embarrass you, especially when you place them in the public domain. Apparently not, so I can only state that Sarah Palin at least has class, clarity of thought, the ability to connect with an audience and yes, the fear and envy of the LLS alliance (liberals, leftists, and socialists).

    You’re right, David, the original Palin quote is even better than Tina Fey’s characterization:”[A]s Putin rears his head and comes into the air space of the United States of America, where– where do they go? It’s Alaska. It’s just right over the border. It is– from Alaska that we send those out to make sure that an eye is being kept on this very powerful nation, Russia, because they are right there.”Never heard of the “LLS.”

    Got nicer reviews from my facebook friends:

      • Raquel Vallejo great piece Russell.  Here’s my paranoid conspiracy theory:  Ryan is such an undeniably crappy and extremist pick that it shows the hubris of the GOP and their election-stealing tactics.  They know they are going to win this thing with their billions from secret PAC donors and their stupidly unnecessary voter ID laws.   GAWD, I hope I’m wrong.
