Media Ride Ryan Express

Maddow, as I've noted, launched similar blast on TV this morning, but now here's Michael Grunwald of Time:  "I should probably just shut up about Paul Ryan, because I believe there’s a federal statute requiring pundits to marvel at his 'seriousness' and 'courage.' I think there’s also a constitutional mandate enshrining him as a 'deficit hawk,' even though he voted for the Bush tax cuts, the Bush military and security spending binge, the Medicare prescription drug benefit, the bank bailout and the auto bailout, and against the Bowles-Simpson deficit reduction plan. So I think for now I’ll just repost my screed about the Ryan plan from April 2011, suggesting that fuzzy math in the service of Tea Party ideology is not all that brave."
