I’m so torn on the possibility of Paul Ryan as a potential Republican candidate for President.
On one hand, we already know that just about everything that comes out of his mouth is complete horseshit, and only a complete idiot would even consider casting a ballot for him.
On the other hand, I thought the same about Mitt Romney, and look how close the 2012 election was. When people are so sharply divided, a lot of people embrace their idiocy, racism, and complete ignorance to vote for the guy who talks about “people like you” vs. “people like them.”
Part of me hopes we get Governor Christie as the Republican candidate, because then, even if he wins, maybe things won’t be too bad. I don’t like the guy, but given a choice between him and Paul Ryan, I’ll take Christie every time. And maybe there’d then be a third-party Tea Party candidate to split the Republican vote.
Whoever runs, I hope they open a tumblr account. I had a blast ripping Mitt Romney’s tumblr posts apart.
