    That is the sound it makes when you thump a wooden candidate on his wooden head.

    That’s for telling everyone we’re going to use your budget when you don’t even have one

    Paul Aynrand is the future. Mitt is the past. In other words, the guy from 1890 is being replaced by the guy from 1950. That’s what you call progress in GOP land.

    I like ne7minders spelling of ryan as rAyn. Very apt, and I think this cartoon is okay, maybe not the best as pointed out by meetingthemiddle, but the caricature of rAyn is spot on. I would say that if Romney can’t reestablish himself as the guiding star of the ticket in the debate Wednesday, if rAyn comes out as still the virtual leader, this election is over and we can start concentrating on Senate and House races. Eddie Munster (only creepier) is finished as a national politician.

    Actually, Romney/Ryan DO have a budget! It consists of two items: “NO”!

    Good reasoning motivemagus. Still waiting for the conservative reasoning for why the Ryan plan is effective at either reducing the deficit or restoring prosperity to the middle class… still waiting…

    By the way, I’m not sure if I heard this correctly, but it seems that the conservative controlled media is deliberately skewing poll data to make the presidential race seem closer than it is so republicans won’t be too discouraged to go out and vote on election day. The real numbers show Obama up eight to ten points and they say it’s only four. Would they really do something like that?

    The Romney budget is locked up with his tax returns.

    Just leave the poor to their own devices, just like uncle ronnie raygun did in California for the folks in mental hospitals. Saved a budget line item. But, more important, also shifted the burden to law enforcement and prisons at a much higher cost and an increase in crime.

    @howgozit:Yeah, right…try reading what I wrote and research a little. I know you guys are desperate, but you gotta come up with something new! Sour grapes just makes you guys sound more than a little whiney.

    “Every conservative I’ve talked to still likes Ryan.”.All three of them ? The ones in the cracked mirror don’t count.

    It actually seems they’ve been taking turns whacking each other with that club. Anyone paying attention to the “Ryan plan” would throw it, and him, out with the garbage.

    Okay, time for some real data. Nate Silver hammers the idea that polls are biased in EITHER direction:http://fivethirtyeight.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/09/29/poll-averages-have-no-history-of-consistent-partisan-bias/Sorry, HOWIE, you are going to have to give up that assumption.

    You should read her essays in “The Virtue of Selfishness”. She lays out most of her actual thinking there, and it is not too far off from her fiction. She was an extremist when it came to individual rights. My wife teaches her essays on occasion, and I consider it essential reading the same way I do “Mein Kampf”; it shows the dangers of extremist thinking, but allows you to trace their logic from normalcy to extremism so the reader who can critically analyze it sees the warning signs in some of our fellow citizens and leaders.

    If this is how Paul Ryan handles himself in a FOX NEWS interview, boy howdy, just wait till the VEEP debate. There won’t be anything left of him but a puddle on the floor.
