Current House Budget Committee chair and former Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan proposed a new budget this week, and it looks...a whole lot like every other budget he's proposed, going so far as to assume that ObamaCare will be repealed (FYI, it won't be). Now, we've danced a few jigs with past Ryan budgets a couple of times already, but as Steve Kornacki at Salon points out, as he struggles to make his relevance felt in the aftermath of a pretty decisive drubbing at the polls last fall, Ryan has maneuvered himself into a particular historical sand trap that very few previous failed veep contenders have managed to climb out of.
