Actor Nathan Lane compared Mitt Romney’s running mate Paul Ryan to the ‘Wicked Witch of the West’ from ‘The Wizard of Oz’ during a Friday night campaign event for Vice President Joe Biden.

Lane pointed out that Romney is fluent in French, which means “he can flip-flop in two languages.” He also encouraged attendees to go through the medicine cabinets at the home where the event was held and take whatever they needed, a practice he said Republicans refer to as “our plan to save Medicare.”

Speaking of Medicare, Lane turned his attention to Ryan’s plan to turn the program into a voucher system. “I think his precise words to Medicare were, ‘I’ll fix you, my pretty,’ as he rode off on his broom,” he said to laughs. Source: Huffington Post
