Cenk goes way back into the philosophy of Ayn Rand, “possible sociopath and ideological godmother of the Republican Party.” Though Paul Ryan has attempted to disavow his admiration for Rand, her extreme ideas seem to match up with the “values” that he and many on the right wing have tried to legislate through budget cuts. Her only mistake in their eyes? Atheism.
