Of Course, Sometimes The Acorn Falls Really Close To The Tree, Maybe It Even Hits Its Head A Few Times On The Way Down

Are you as tired as I am of this blog's obsession with politics? Do you come here to get away from all that vitriol and anger? Tough.
Mitt Romney has referred to Paul Ryan as his sixth son. So, he must be really proud of Ryan's speech last night at the Republican convention. It was virtually a full-employment act for fact checkers. Now you might suspect the MSM of  bias, but here's a quote from Fox News (Fox News!!!):

On the other hand, to anyone paying the slightest bit of attention to facts, Ryan’s speech was an apparent attempt to set the world record for the greatest number of blatant lies and misrepresentations slipped into a single political speech. On this measure, while it was  Romney who ran the Olympics, Ryan earned the gold.

Oh, by the way, there might have been some confusion about a recent post. Goldwater wrote George Romney, Mitt's father, back in 1964. When George Romney ran for president, he released twelve years of tax returns, because, “One year could be a fluke, perhaps done for show,”  he said.

Oh, oh, another thing; Condoleeza Rice asked over and over at the convention, "Where does America stand?" Let's remember where it stood when she was in charge of American foreign policy; in Baghdad, fighting a costly and pointless war that left thousands of American soldiers dead or disabled, Iraq in shambles, and Iran freed from constraints on both its Eastern and Western borders because of our interventions.  Now John McCain, in his "walk down amnesia lane" wants us to invade Syria, as if al-Qaeda didn't ever use our own weapons against us after we armed them in the 80's or that the last 10 years never happened.
