The Janesville Gazette posted a bizarre yet comical article (front paged it too) about Rep. Paul Ryans' "homecoming" dinner party hosted by the local red state low-wage conservative group, Forward Janesville. Titled "Hometown Pride," ol' regular guy Paulie is quoted describing a time last year when he was at a local Ace Hardware store in Janesville and spotted a grill he wanted to buy ...but couldn't afford ...well not exactly but he thought it was too expensive.
On a weekend home, he spotted a grill at Ace Hardware that he wanted, but he thought it might be too expensive.
When he told Janna about it, she said, "When Mitt Romney does not pick you to be his running mate, you can get that grill."
Okay, we know Ryan was picked by Romney, so for his reward, he gets punished. Wait ...that ain't even right. It's just so bizarre that when in Washington, the congressman doesn't even blink sipping $350 bottles of wine at the swanky Capitol Hill eatery Bistro Bis, but when in Janesville ...this is too much. *facepalm* But it's worth a laugh at least for us regular people.
Anyways, have no fear folks. The Gazette reports that Ryan's colleagues in Congress took up a collection for the multi-millionaire congressman, contacted the Ace and bought him the grill he wanted.
Yes, Paul Ryan made them all laugh.
Speaking about a #nerdprom, Sarah Palin became unhinged as usual about the WHCD.
