Yes, you probably thought this was a story about Michelle Bachmann, but actually it is about her evil twin, Paul Ryan. I don’t think it came as a surprise that Ryan was told to steer clear of Florida. Even rabidly right wing seniors disapprove of Ryan’s plans by a comfortable 20% margin.
Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain: Kevin Madden, Romney’s campaign manager. Madden wants us to believe that sending Ryan to the Iowa State fair (Iowa was where Romney signed a pledge to discriminate against the LGBT community) rather than joining Romney in Florida had nothing to do with Ryan wanting to gut Medicare. Sure, I believe that. I also believe that it is safe to say the word Bain around Romney and that it is just a simple oversight that George W. was asked not to attend the Republican National Convention.
One might ask, why the heck did Romney pick this fascist as a running mate. My greatest fear, given how homophobic both men are and how much they hate women, one conclusion one might draw is that they are secret lovers—-okay, ewwwww that even made me spit up. The big question is, why on earth would any minority in the United States vote for such a duo of hate?
