I thus conclude that this may be the explanation for the suddently "unexplained" overflowing crowds at Romeny rallies now that Romney chose Ryan.

By way of background, I began my talk radio career in 1990. In the 22 years since, I have covered six presidential races. Before that I watched two presidential races from within the Reagan Administration, and...
