From The Onion...

In the past two days, I've heard more than one person dismiss Paul Ryan as "the male Sarah Palin," or "just another Palin," but what I keep coming back with is that while he's ideologically as extreme or possibly more extreme, unlike Palin, he's a true believer who's managed to convince a number of talking heads who should know better that his Medicare-killing budget is "mature" and "responsible." If that doesn't worry you, here's word from "Ryan" himself, via an exclusive Onion op-ed with the ominious title, "Admit It, I Scare The Ever-Loving S*** Out Of You, Don't I?":
How scared are you that I can convince people I’m right? Because I’m good at it. No, I’m really good at it. You see, I know how to turn up the charm and charisma without putting people off. Then I back up what I’m saying with arguments that, when they come out of my mouth, sound completely accurate and well-reasoned. And I do it with such passion that people automatically recognize me as a man with deep convictions he will stand up for, no matter what. 
The American people love that s***. They love it.
As so often with The Onion, their satire carries a mean left hook. Read the rest from "Ryan" here.
