"Biggest Brown-Noser"

Cannot. Make. This. Shit. Up.

Paul Ryan has been working on being a VP since High School





The Paul Ryan Wikipedia edits begin

NBC News, POLITICO, and other media outlets are reporting tonight that Mitt Romney will likely name Rep. Paul Ryan as his running mate when he makes his VP announcement tomorrow at 9 a.m. in Norfolk, Virginia.

One small but important part of the announcement: Paul Ryan's Wikipedia page is about to undergo a wave of edits and revisions. (The page was edited 14 times in the first hour and a half following the Romney campaign's announcement.)

The first edit:


Removed unnecessary statement from Early Life about prom king or "Brown Noser." This is not needed in article is not common in such brief survey sections.

The detail, in Ryan's Wikipedia biography since June 16, comes from an AP report on that date noting that Ryan "was voted prom king and the 'Biggest Brown-Noser' of his 1988 high school class before leaving for college in Ohio."





Its back in

1. two cowardly bullies

one attacks a shy loner with his prep-school posse behind him, the other attacks those without a voice, the poor, sick and elderly.
Real tough guys.

2. Was it Paul Ryan?


Did I see a post on DU about a congressman leaving a bar in Martha's Vineyard intoxicated, and he knocked a woman down some stairs on his way out? Keeping up with Mittens' antics is hard on my memory cells.

Was that post about Paul Ryan?

Biggest Brown-Noser??? Ha! We all know that guy!
