Mitt Romney valde till sist Paul Ryan som sin vice-president kandidat. Matt Taibbi twittrade om sitt utmärkta porträtt av Ryan, och hans politik, från april förra året. Tax Cuts for the Rich on the Backs of the Middle Class; or, Paul Ryan Has Balls
”Paul Ryan, the Republican Party’s latest entrant in the seemingly endless series of young, prickish, over-coiffed, anal-retentive deficit Robespierres they’ve sent to the political center stage in the last decade or so, has come out with his new budget plan. All of these smug little jerks look alike to me – from Ralph Reed to Eric Cantor to Jeb Hensarling to Rand Paul and now to Ryan, they all look like overgrown kids who got nipple-twisted in the halls in high school, worked as Applebee’s shift managers in college, and are now taking revenge on the world as grownups by defunding hospice care and student loans and Sesame Street. They all look like they sleep with their ties on, and keep their feet in dress socks when doing their bi-monthly duty with their wives.”
Tack för den bilden, Matt!
