My twitter feed is alight with denunciations of Paul Ryan. I've been thinking on the state of Ryan's speakership, vice-presidential run, and general "fiscal conservatism." What a sorry reflection of our congressional leadership and what stands for the cutting intellectual edge of American conservatism. I would say good riddance, but all the damage is already inflicted. The so-called fiscal hawk of the GOP--his criticisms were credibly received by Obama et al to cut off additional post-2008 aid to the states--were completely in bad faith. The deficit is set to be $800 billion, with $1.5 trillion set for 2028. What a cretin. /broken record
