I notice any time Ryan gets into trouble explaining economic issues, he starts using the word “baseline” a lot. It’s not really that complicated of a word, but I think it’s meant to scare people off, like, “Don’t mess with me, I’ll start talking about baselines.” To me, it just smacks of a guy who’s trying too hard. And it’s meant to end the conversation before someone who does know what they’re talking about discovers he has no idea.
with some good perspective on GOP VP candidate. Also a must if you’re planning a drinking game for tonight.
