Wurst Person in the World: Paul Ryan Drove the Wienermobile

I guess this is not a revelation today but it was new to me.  The Oscar Meyer vehicle goes back to 1936.  Of course there is now a site full of background on Ryan (call it oppo-research if you will) which includes all sorts of fascinating stuff.  But for starters:  According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, “One of his summer jobs in college was as an Oscar Mayer salesman in Minnesota, peddling turkey bacon and a new line called ‘Lunchables’ to supermarkets. He drove the Wienermobile once.”  Now he's all brat, no wurst.
