Ryan, not Rubio

This time around, I was wrong:

Mitt Romney today announced Wisconsin Representative Paul Ryan as his Vice Presidential running mate.

Ryan is actually a very good choice and indicates that Romney is not playing the role of a Dole/McCain sacrificial lamb. This doesn’t change who Captain Underoos is or make any difference concerning what a disaster an even more bank-friendly president will be, but it should solidify conservative support and generate genuine enthusiasm amidst a Republican grassroots that had hitherto had serious and well-founded doubts about Romney.
