From the GREAT STATE OF MAINE?

Finally we know what the GOP presidential bumper sticker looks like:
(romney)-RYAN 2012...and it'll make an adorable yard sign, too.
"Together We Can Build A Medicare-Free Future"
Even Romney's amazing "BE THE FIRST PERSON IN THE UNIVERSE TO KNOW!!!" VP-announcement "app" only worked retroactively. It should've just displayed a message that said: "Check twitter from 10 hours ago."
That solemn music that played over Ryan's entrance was the theme from 'Air Force One,' a movie in which the President of the United States defeats a bunch of terrorists against near-impossible odds. Thanks for reminding America why Barack Obama deserves four more years, Mitt.
There's no ambiguity this time about what the Republican vice presidential pick thinks about the catastrophically dunderheaded Bush Doctrine. (Remember "In what respect, Charlie?") Paul Ryan voted with both hands to preemptively invade Iraq. He would do so again, only next time instead of Cheney, he'll be the one ginning up the false intelligence.
Paul Ryan says that "Our rights come from nature and God, not government." Uh huh. Try and create your own religion that says it's okay to rob banks at tree-branch-point and see how that works out when the cars with the lollipop lights on the roof show up.
"Poverty is up," complained the vice presidential candidate who would never vote for a bill that helps lift people out of poverty.
If you take away the military hardware from a Republican campaign event, what you're left with is basically an Amway convention with slightly less polyester.
I can cite three major slaps in the face to the conservative evangelical community that Paul Ryan committed during his speech: 1) No Rick Warren lapel pin 2) Didn?t blame any natural disasters on gays and feminists. 3) Never said "God Bless America." Not to put too fine a point on it, but I believe I'd like to see that gentleman's birth certificate to make sure it's not all stained with borscht and vodka.
The south, for all its bluster, got screwed even harder this year. In '08 the GOP team was from a conservative western state and a conservative northern state. This year the GOP team is from two liberal northern states. In 2016 the GOP team may well come straight out of Michael Moore's ass.
Rob Portman and Tim Pawlenty are now available to sing at your wedding?or do odd jobs around your house?or perform puppet shows at your kid's next birthday party?or call Bingo down at the Eagle's lodge?or?anything, really.
Cheers and Jeers starts below the fold... [Swoosh!!] RIGHTNOW! [Gong!!]
