Paul Ryan: 'If Stench Calls, Take A Message'

Though Ryan had already decided to distance himself from the floundering Romney campaign, he now feels totally uninhibited...


Update: It seems the Politico report that this "Stench" nick-name originated from was, indeed, satire. I thought it was funny, but apparently it was supposed to be. So...nevermind.

With 41 days left until election day, according to this Politico piece, Paul Ryan has already bailed out on Team Romney:

Though Ryan had already decided to distance himself from the floundering Romney campaign, he now feels totally uninhibited. Reportedly, he has been marching around his campaign bus, saying things like, “If Stench calls, take a message” and “Tell Stench I’m having finger sandwiches with Peggy Noonan and will text him later.”

Can you believe that in a Romney *cough* administration this cry baby would be one car elevator accident away from running the country?

As Lawrence O'Donnell points out, no candidate has ever won a presidential election without winning the state of Ohio. Mitt Romney is trailing Obama in polls by 8 points in Ohio, and in a local poll in Toledo, Ohio (Lucas County) where both candidates are campaigning today, Obama leads 63.5 percent to 26.6 percent, with 10 percent undecided.
