Al Gore is in the Internet Hall Of Fame for his help with the Internet. Paul Ryan was never fast, claimed he was after saying he ran 2:50 something, then tried to say he should have rounded to 4 instead of 3 (how is 2:50 something rounding to 3???) then said he just forgot and made up the 2:50 that he thought was now ordinary contradicting his retort (there's audio and he added that information in a boastful way). The video of Ryan gee goshing about this on Toledo News Now is priceless. He is a professional at lying and manipulating. It's really rather frightening to watch.

Today on Face the Nation, Norah O’Donnell interviewed vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan. At the end of the interview, rather than asking him one last question about any of the pressing problems facing our country (and it’s not like there aren’t enough to choose from) she chose the completely-irrelevant-to-anything-going-on-in-this-world marathon time. And to top it all off, she believed a sound comparison was Al Gore saying he invented the internet. How nice.

The man misspoke, he acknowledged the error and has a perfectly understandable reason for making it. Of course, as Ryan acknowledges in the interview, it’s just another...
