Paul Ryan just put out the most Presidential "no, seriously, I swear I am not running for office" advertisement in the history, ever. Seriously. From the emotive music to the swinging camera angles to the teary eyed ladies in the audience.

Some totally non-Presidential buzzwords in this one minute "I am not trying to sneak my name into contention for 1600 Pennsylvania Ave" ad:

"inspiring"

"common humanity"

"unify us"

"we all want to be prosperous"

"we want people to reach their potential"

"liberals and conservatives are going to disagree, no problem"

"let's have a battle of ideas"

How long are we going to keep playing this charade? How long must we all pretend that he isn't going to be the nominee at any possibly contested convention? How long must we pretend their party is so damn broken they must have a Paul Ryan fantasy savior of the party? Dream on.
