Beautiful. Paul Ryan, the champion of Republicans on budgetary issues, says this, to Fox "news" Chris Wallace, about his proposals and possible reaction:
WALLACE: Last question, as you look ahead, and a lot of people would say look, the answer is you're not going to get this budget passed. It's really setting up an issue and a sensible debate for 2012. As you look ahead to the next election, aren't Democrats going to be able to say "Look at Paul Ryan, look at the House Republicans. They want to kill Medicare.
They want to kill Medicaid. They want to gut the programs that you depend on." Aren't you playing into the Democrats hands?
RYAN: We are. We are giving them a political weapon to go against us, but they will have to lie and demagogue to make that a political weapon.
Right. Like health care reform and death panels. Government takeover. Killing grandma.
"Lie and demagogue." "Lie and demagogue to make that a political weapon." That's gonna overtake Alan Greenspan's as the most laughable political comment of the new century.
