I guess wild animals aren’t all Mitt Romney’s ‘bold’ veep pick likes to slay. Add Medicaid and Medicare to the mix as well.
The Yosemite Sam impression didn’t go over well with voters and Romney wisely stayed away from varmint talk this election cycle. Instead of trying to impress the NRA with his minimal hunting exploits, Romney filled out his ticket with the manliest animal murderer he could find. That man is Paul Ryan and he’s a serious hunter. He doesn’t shoot “varmints.” He shoots deer and turkeys and sometimes even his office wall. He hunts with guns and he hunts with bows. And after he kills animals he poses for pictures with them.

Remember Mama Grizzly Sarah Palin with her dead caribous? Um, the John McCain-Sarah Palin ticket was DOA at the general election in 2008. Paul Ryan is about to slay Mitt Romney’s presidential aspirations. That’s if the Democrats are successful at defining him as a “Throw Momma from the Train” type vice presidential candidate who is only looking out for the wealthy at the expense of the poor and middle class.
