    In fact, I almost used an Eddie Munster picture, instead.

    But Ryan is far creepier.

      There's no middle ground for this creep...it's all or nothing for him.  He was fixated on Ayn Rand and it appears as if he is obsessed with body image:

      It was Paul Ryan’s abs that sold Kevin Brady.

      “When I saw Paul Ryan — man, he’s gotten in great shape. He doesn’t have a six-pack; he’s got, like, a 12-pack,” Brady, a Texas Republican, says of his fellow GOP-er, who hails from Wisconsin.

      “And Heath Shuler said he was in the best shape he’d been since his football days,” Brady adds, referring to the North Carolina Democrat’s stretch as a quarterback in the National Football League, “and I was really impressed with that.”

      Inspired by Ryan’s rock-hard core and Shuler’s gridiron-ready condition, Brady has joined the growing legion of legislators who have shelled out three easy payments of $39.95 (plus shipping and handling) for the privilege of pushing their limits with the P90X workout, a 12-disc home boot camp routine that has become something of a craze on Capitol Hill.

      Lawmakers have been carving out early-morning hours and stretching the limits of closing time at the House gym to squeeze in the hour-or-longer workouts — sold via infomercial and on the company’s website, beachbody.com — which promise to “transform your body from regular to ripped in just 90 days,” and which challenge participants to “bring it!” in one of a dozen different routines, six days a week.

        “It suggests that this woman can’t go anywhere in life without Barack Obama’s government-centered society. It’s kind of demeaning to her,” Ryan said. “She must have him and his big government to depend on to go anywhere in life. It doesn’t say much about his faith in Julia.”
        golly gee...if only women were paid the same as men for doing the same work, fewer women would need government help.  if birth control were handed out like candy for free, fewer women would need government help.  

        etc.

        in short, if women hadn't been regarded as chattel until the latter part of the 20th century, fewer of us would need government help, you paternalistic, misogynist worm.

          comment apart and analyze specific sentences:

          It suggests that this woman can’t go anywhere in life without Barack Obama’s government-centered society.

          She must have him and his big government to depend on to go anywhere in life.

          Ryan is saying that women can't live without a man, no matter how he is trying to twist it.

          Ryan's idealized woman is Ayn Rand and his conflict and confusion about women is becoming more and more clear.
