1. Wonder what the wingnuts will think of THIS?

If his strategy wasn't to pick Ryan because of his *budget* proposal to excite the GOP base, then what the heck was it? The GOP base (and Grover Norquist) wants the Ryan budget, so why would Mitt turn around and tell everybody, "Hey, I just picked the guy with the awesome budget proposal that you all like but I'm not running on it."

Thankfully the Obama campaign and DNC aren't going to avoid running on it. Mitt/Paul are now stuck in a position where they are going to have to disavow it (and make the teabaggers mad) or embrace it (and make indies/moderates mad). Or tell everybody that they have another top-secret plan that they aren't going tell us about? Checkmate!
