Paul Ryan for VP: The tea party's ascendancy is complete

August 14, 2012

Well, it's official. A member of the tea party is on the presidential ticket. Think about that for a moment. This is a party that is backed by right wing billionaires like the Koch brothers. A party whose members show up at Obama campaign rallies strapped with assault weapons at a time when deranged people are shooting up movie theaters. A party that wants to dismantle the U.S. government, get rid of Social Security and Medicare, and allow the warped philosophies of Ayn Rand to become the law of the land. This is truly a dark day for America.
