Paul "Pinocchio" rAYN

The other day we brought you the story of how Paul Ryan (R- Ayn Rand) was begging for stimulus funds with one hand while voting against the stimulus on the other. Now we find out that not only was he two faced about it, he had no problem lying to people who asked him about it! H/T more great reporting from the Boston Globe:
On October 28, 2010, after the Wisconsin Republican penned at least five letters to two federal departments seeking grants under the Obama administration’s economic recovery package, Ryan responded to a caller on WBZ’s Nightside with Dan Rea who asked if he sought any of the money. Ryan said that he would not vote against something “then write to the government to ask them to send us money.”

“I did not request any stimulus money,” he continued.

Don't they vet these people???


  1. LOL, love the mock-up. Gave me a much needed snark laugh.

  2. Great post, thanks.

  3. This is awesome. Thank you for your coverage. Ryan the bionic man...I'm sure Paul's not laughing by bringing this out.
    What's said publicly is often at odds with what that person does privately.
