Paul Ryan steps up for cash-strapped ‘mentor’ Tommy Thompson in Wisconsin
Source: The Hill
MILWAUKEE, Wis. — Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) took a break from the presidential trail to fundraise for Tommy Thompson on Sunday afternoon — a show of loyalty as his hero fights for his political life.

2. The nut doesn't fall far from the tree
It's pretty common for racists to learn their hate from their parents. I'm sure TT shares his son's beliefs. He's just marginally smarter in that he doesn't let his slip show as much.
