Via Instapundit: 12 things to know About Ryan. 1. "First, he’s only 10 years older than me. That’s the age difference between me and the oldest boyfriend I’ve ever had. In other words, Paul Ryan is young enough to be my boyfriend. Or I’m old enough to be his girlfriend." That's certainly off putting. 2. "He’s a big fan of Ayn Rand." OMG, a libertarian, run for the hills! 3. "He’s not a friend to gay people." OK, he's Catholic. Betcha he was a Boy Scout, too! That Hater! Question: Does being the honorary President of the Boy Scouts count as being a Hater? 4. "He thinks fertilized eggs are people and should be treated as such under the eyes of the law." OK, he's Catholic and he takes it seriously. 5. "He’s extremely and proudly anti-choice." Is he still Catholic? Outrageous! 6. "His economic plans calls for just two tax brackets." Call me when you learn something about the Internal Revenue Code. Its right here. Hint: It has more than one section. This is not just about tax rates. 7. "He was voted “Biggest Brown Noser” in high school." Uncool. Very uncool. We already have a President who is so cool he has his own kill list. Let's keep him! 8. "He has a very lush head of hair." When did she turn her post into a parody? 9. "He wants to privatize Medicare." I prefer Iowahawk: The thing that is going to end Medicare as we know it is Medicare as we know it. (Can't find the link.) 10. "He is a very good public speaker." How awful! And a Republican, too! 11. "He thinks Social Security is a “Ponzi Scheme." I do not think that word means what you think it means. I think it means what Ryan thinks it means. 12. "He kind of hates Mother Earth." Just kind of? You mean Romney couldn't find a full blown Gaia hater in all of the Republican Party? Damn, that man really must be stupid!
