Even as the austerity jackals try to pretend that Paul Ryan’s austerity jones isn’t part of what’s sinking the Romney campaign, Ryan’s congressional opponent, Rob Zerban, has been asking why self-styled Macho Athlete Dude Ryan runs away like a frightened first-grade bully from every opportunity to debate Zerban. This is particularly odd considering that Ryan has debated every single other foe he’s faced as a congressional candidate — the less likely to win, the better.
Gee, you kinda wonder if it’s precisely because Zerban has a chance against Ryan, that Ryan won’t debate him?
By the way, Zerban’s Act Blue page is here: https://secure.actblue.com/page/stoppaulryan/
Throw a few coins at it, and you might be rewarded by seeing Ryan, the poster child for austerity, go down — and perhaps take the Grand Bargain with him.
