There are so many terrific articles ripping into the lies that Paul Ryan told at the GOP convention last night that I feel compelled to link you to them rather than try to work though my sleep-deprived state and make my own list.
Here you go, and feel free to share:
[B]y trying to deceive voters about basic facts and trying to distract voters from his own record, Ryan’s speech caused a much larger problem for himself and his running mate.
A man who would use his hometown as a prop and then try to deceive the country about the causes of its circumstance has a certain appeal to Republican delegates who cut their political teeth making the case for trickle-down economics and weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.
But Wisconsinites, at least those who can remember 2008, will not believe him.
Nor should discerning voters in the rest of the republic.
The best way to duck the tough issues, apparently, is simply to claim very loudly that you are doing the opposite.
