JANESVILLE—People on stage, behind the podium, of the Craig High School gym are getting the crowd to rehearse their cheers where Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan is about to speak, said Gazette reporter Frank Schultz.
Soon afterwards, JS Online reports Roar greets Paul Ryan in Janesville.
Hey Lou, thought you would be interested in this. I saw a Roman Catholic priest dressed in his collar walking down South Randall street after the event. He was also carrying a Romney-Ryan "Believe" sign. I usually don't bother to ask strangers about their politics, but being a catholic myself, I had to ask him if he supports Romney and Ryan and why. He said he supports Ryan [did not mention romney] because he's a Catholic and a good man. I asked him if he knows of the author Ayn Rand and the movie Atlas Shrugged. He said he never heard of it. When I mentioned that Ryan holds strong beliefs in Ayn Rands Atlas Shrugged that directly contradict catholic teachings, he said it sounds like a kooky conspiracy theory. I said that's exactly the point -- it is and Ryan is playing a leading role. He quickly turned and walked away....
Wow. Thanks for sharing. Too bad there is no picture of that one. A Catholic priest carrying a Romney/Ryan "Believe" sign. That's gotta be the ultimate in cognitive dissonance.
