Looking at the important issues:
Paul Ryan said he ran a marathon under 3 hours 20 years ago, and Joyner’s readers are apoplectic. So… I’m supposed to give a damn about guys bragging over their workouts. In other topics, whatever happened to that lawsuit over Fast & Furious? Or is that a distraction?
UPDATE: iOwnTheWorld has the right response,
Paul Ryan was on the Hugh Hewitt radio show and mentioned that he once ran a sub-3 hour marathon. That’s an elite amateur time. So THIS, THIS, is what perks up journalists out of their 4 year long slumber.
Ryan’s claim turned out to be off by an hour. That’s a lot. That’s something one should have gotten right. So today, Ryan made a statement saying that “he misspoke.” Yada. That his brother actually has the best time in the family and it isn’t sub- 3 hours. Yada. Yada.
That is NOT the way to respond to this.
This is how:
Sooooooo. It took you this long to fall into our little trap? Of course he never ran a sub-3 hour marathon. You’ve proven that you have the ability to dig when you want to, and we want that same standard applied to the other side of the ticket.
Where are the Obama college records? Obama doesn’t even have to lie about how he got straight A’s and is the smartest man in the history of the presidency – you guys do that for him.
We’re running against Joe Biden, a guy that has in the past made dubious claims about everything from his intellect to his family history. We anticipate that he will be doing the same in the upcoming debate. We just wanted to make sure that journalism wasn’t dead. Now that this has been established let’s see if it is only dead when it comes to going after the left.
Otherwise, we’re looking at the start of the Palinization of Paul Ryan.
Sent by a reader, from 2008, Why Biden’s plagiarism shouldn’t be forgotten. Marathon fibs ought to keep a man from being VP? Plagiarism didn’t.
Vanished!… Islamic Jumah Disappears From Official DNC Schedule. It’s not vanished, it’s sitting on a chair!
Hugo Chavez is sending Cuba 100,000 bb of oil daily, and extra cash (to the tune of $1billion on the last quarter of 2011), supposedly to pay for all those Cuban doctors in Venezuela. Yeah, right, to pay for doctors.
It’s Labor Day weekend, so keep your lipstick off you teeth and have a great time.
