He was touted by the Village as a superstar who would electrify the country, but the markets have spoken, and surprise, surprise, once again, the Beltway media is wrong. Ayn Ryan's speech tanked in the ratings, plummeting nearly 50% when compared to Sarah Palin's acceptance speech 4 years ago.
The ratings just rolled in and only 20.49 million viewers watched last night's acceptance speech, a stunning 46% decline from Sarah Palin's acceptance speech, which drew 37 million viewers.
HOLY SHIT! A 46% drop! SELL! SELL! SELL!
OUCH! That has to hurt. Half the ratings of the Half-Governor!?!?!?
These number prove Ayn Ryan is Box Office Poison. What the Corporate Media elites in Georgetown don't get is Real America™ doesn't want to end Medicare as we know it and give another massive tax cut to billionaires like me.
The highly promoted Beltway idol, the hero of the teabaggers, couldn't even electrify a pot of coffee. If he was a tee vee show, he would have been yanked off the stage midway through his speech.
Don't worry Paul, just like a junk bond, I'm sure Halperin and Fixxed News will cook the books to make you look good to gullible billionaire investors.
