Oh what a glorious pick, Straussian even.
A member of the elite picks a disciple of Ayn Rand.
Well the tea party have got their wish; the Romney/Ryan ticket is the their Earl Grey and there will be no milk and sugar for sure, the cream cakes have been reserved for those that deserve them.
Of course members of the tea party form part of the Ayn Rand and Leo Strauss vision for a better America.
Religion used as a tool; for control.
The elite beyond responsibility and restraint.

"Alpha children wear grey. They work much harder than we do, because they're so frightfully clever. I'm really awfully glad I'm a Beta, because I don't work so hard. And then we are much better than the Gammas and Deltas. Gammas are stupid. They all wear green, and Delta children wear khaki. Oh no, I don't want to play with Delta children. And Epsilons are still worse. They're too stupid to be able …And we all know to which group Romney and Ryan believe they belong.
A brave New World Chp2"
