    Paul Ryan Running for President (Maybe)

    By Kyle | August 16, 2011

    So says The Weekly Standard. I think Paul Ryan will get about as far as Paul Tsongas. Nobody wants to be told the free ride is over. They only want to entertain offers about more free rides, or to hear about exciting improvements to the upholstery on existing rides. What is Paul Ryan’s base? Weekly Standard writers, maybe. That’s about it.
