    It is rare to see a politician, especially one who has been a part of a presidential campaign, ever admit:  I fucked up.  I can only think of one that did that in my lifetime - Walter Mondale in 1984.  Most avoid acknowledging mistakes let alone admit that their political policies are unworkable or unpopular.  Also, a politician is loath to confess any error when their voting bloc has gone insane, like the Republican base is.

    So Ryan has to blame Candy Crowley.  This is funny considering Crowley has pushed Republican talking points before on numerous occasions.  And I agree with Hunter completely.  The presidential debates have devolved into joint press conferences with tame journalists.
