Like Newt Gingrich? You’ll Love Paul Ryan.

August 16, 2012

Love Newt Gingrich? You'll Love Paul Ryan.

Who is Paul Ryan? He spent a few months at the Tea Party’s alleged “Think Tank” and read a cult novel and a few faddish books as an impressionable undergrad. These days that’s enough to make him a Republican Intellectual, the GOP’s Idea Man, the party’s Intellectual Leader.

So basically Paul Ryan is a Big Ideas Guy, Newt Gingrich with fewer chins.
