RNC 2012 Discussion Thread

Paul Ryan grins and points at someone in the RNC audience.
Hey, you. In the eleventh row. Isn't that great gum?

Boy, Republicans sure do point a lot, don't they?

Anyhoo! Did you watch it? Didja? I didn't. The neighbors get tired of hearing me scream incoherently. One thing we do know is that Paul Ryan is a big liar. A big big liar. How big of a liar? Even FOX News is calling his speech a ton of bullshit. Literally. (Even after they swoon and call him "dazzling.")
On the other hand, to anyone paying the slightest bit of attention to facts, Ryan’s speech was an apparent attempt to set the world record for the greatest number of blatant lies and misrepresentations slipped into a single political speech. On this measure, while it was Romney who ran the Olympics, Ryan earned the gold.

The good news is that the Romney-Ryan campaign has likely created dozens of new jobs among the legions of additional fact checkers that media outlets are rushing to hire to sift through the mountain of cow dung that flowed from Ryan’s mouth.Said fact checkers have already condemned certain arguments that Ryan still irresponsibly repeated.

It's cool though, because the Romney campaign won't be dictated by fact checkers! Ha! Ha! Ha!

Here's your next-day fact check roundup.

That's a big tent.

Your guide to who will be tumbling out of the clown car tonight.
