Lyin Ryan Jumps The Shark One Last Time

It wasn't when he lied about his marathon time to fan his own vanity. It wasn't when he referred to pregnancies resulting from rape as another "method of conception." It wasn't even when he pretended to wash pots and pans at a soup kitchen that were already clean.

Paul Ryan has given this election plenty of material with which to dismantle his carefully crafted image as a brainiac. So much material, the Romney campaign has kept him under house arrest in Ohio for the last week. But you gotta let Paul be Paul and he let his freak flag fly one last time on a conference call with members of the Faith and Freedom Coalition.

The guy who's favorite word is "demagogue" described President Obama's vision as "a path that grows government, restricts freedom and liberty and compromises those values -- those Judeo-Christian, Western civilization values that made us a great and exceptional nation in the first place." 

Nothing like fanning the flames of fear to the Rapture-me-now-Jesus Club. Since Mitt has seen the future and discovered that his baptism as a "severe conservative" is going to cost him the election among Republicans who can actually add numbers and don't think Adam and Eve rode on dinosaurs - they let good ol' Paul loose on the religious pitchfork crowd.
