Vice Presidential Candidate Paul Ryan’s campaign raised eyebrows last week when it leaked a list of Ryan’s future career prospects. Strangely enough, — although Associated Press (AP’s) Phillip Elliot assures us that Ryan’s prospects are bright — neither “Vice President of the United States” nor “Congressman (R-WI)” appeared on this list. Is it possible that Ryan’s campaign expects him to lose his congressional seat as well as his bid for vice president? Or are they just hedging their bets?
Luckily for this celebratty politician, the world is his oyster. Ryan also has a handy role model to follow, in the similarly youthful, mediagenic, and base-energizing former Vice Presidential Candidate Sarah Palin (Bill Maher already very aptly compared Ryan and Palin: ”Somehow he’s the smartest guy in the party and she’s the stupidest woman on earth, but they agree on everything.”)
