As the Olympic games draw to a close, spectators are turning their attention back to the Presidential race, especially since Romney announced his Veep pick. Local watering-holes are likely to be abuzz with Ryan talk. And, if you’re someone all in on the Romney-Ryan ticket, here’s what you should expect to hear from someone you are newly dating if they are…
A Moderate Republican: Seriously?! What, like Romney wasn’t tanking enough on his own? You can have that boring and boorish; I’m staying home.
A Democrat: ROTFL.
A Leftist: Why do you hate poor people so much?
A Clueless and Indiscriminate Talk News Junkie: Wait is Romney the Muslim or the guy who strapped his poopy dog on the top of his car?
A Tea Party Member: You had me at “activist government overreach”
NRA member: I’m all in too. Ryan isn’t afraid to use his 2nd Amendment rights as a remedy to a tyrannical government out of control. Don’t tread on me muthafuckah!
