Surprise, Surprise (NOT), Prettyboy is a Flip-Flopper

First he was for the stimulus, before he was a against it. Read the Washington Post, Paul Ryan’s stimulus problem.

Then he was for Medicare savings, before he was against it.  Read the Washington Post, Paul Ryan: For Medicare cuts before he was against them?

Nice addition to the ticket for Obamney, the flip-flopper's flip-flopper.

Neo-Republi-CON McCarthyism

UPDATE:  "Yes, it takes a brave man to randomly accuse someone of something horrible, based on no evidence and then demand they refute the evidence that you don't have. So tonight, I am accusing [insert the name of your favorite demagogue] of being a baby-eating werewolf. There it is. It's out there now.

Do I have evidence? No. But someone has to stand up to him. Where do I find the courage?"

The Republi-con campaign veers "into frightening and familiar territory, a throwback to a part of life in the 1950s for which no one should harbor any nostalgia."  Read the Washington Post, Are Bachmann and Sununu attacks part of a new McCarthyism?

For those of you who forgot, McCarthy was a Republican party Senator who made "demagogic, reckless, and unsubstantiated accusations, as well as public attacks on the character and/or patriotism of political opponents."

 Every town has a McCarthy.  Here in NW Florida, he's a pastor.
