Paul Ryan no doubt got the nod because Chris Christie, Bob McDonnell and Marco Rubio were all afraid to risk their political futures as failed VP candidates on a Romney ticket. Paul Ryan doesn’t have a lot to lose….he’s got a fairly close R+2 PVI district where he’s been in trouble ever since he took on senior citizens with his his wacky Medicare coupon plan, and if everyone is betting on a big Democratic turnout in the fall, this makes sense for him.
Tim Pawlenty…well, he probably did get rejected.
Lest anyone worry that sports shouldn’t take sides in politics, McKayla is likewise unimpressed with Eric Holder shutting down medical marijuana clinics to distract from the Fast and Furious debacle. So petty.
Olympic athletes and weed….write your own joke.
