A Moment ago left a comment at "Ryan/Romney - The Upside Down Presidential Ticket," today's excellent post by Ronni Bennett at TGB. Please note the order of names which reveals, if any had missed it, whom this election is truly about.
To make her point about the devious nature of Paul Ryan, she includes a clip from 10 years ago that appeared Sunday on Chris Hayes' UP! program on MSNBC.
When we watched on Sunday, spouse and I were stunned. Remarkable that we can still be amazed by these wretches. But when I described Ronni's post to him, Ron shouted, "He is John Gault! Only instead of going up the mountain into isolation, he ascends to the White House." And changes America's democracy as we have known it.
Never having read Atlas Shrugged myself, thought I'd insert a link to the book here since Paul Ryan in one of his personality changes (see my comment at TGB) held up the book as the major influence on his politics. Discovered there is a movie (!) I'd never heard of based on the book. Comments there rather chilling in their celebration of narcissism.

Are we ready? An antidote to the above and this week's extreme anti-feminism by those men in black suits, an upbeat YouTube sent me yesterday by a young woman friend. I know you support her hopefulness.
