Ryan to be called "Mister" and not "Congressman" [View all]

(Call me Mister Fibbs)

Paul Ryan Embarrassed to Be a Congressman

Per an agreement between the campaigns, Paul Ryan and Joe Biden can decide how they would prefer to be addressed by moderator Martha Raddatz at tonight's debate, and Ryan has chosen to be called "Mr. Ryan" instead of "Congressman Ryan." It's not exactly clear why, but Politico's Maggie Haberman guesses (and we agree) that it's "almost certainly because of the low approval ratings overall of Congress."
