I am liking Harry Reid these days after going after Romney over taxes now he is onto Paul Ryan's fake marathon time. Harry has some gravitas on this subject having run 15 marathons himself. In fact in 1972 Harry ran the Boston Marathon in 3:15:00. A very impressive time.

Politico, AP and SFGate have the story. the money  quote:

"I'd like to take a minute and apply the Ryan math to my marathon times," the Nevada senator said. "Using the Ryan math, my time would not have been a world's record, but within minutes of a world record. I could have made the Olympic team. Using Ryan math, I would have been superb. Well, Ryan math doesn't work in marathons because you know what ... you can always check someone's math and his math doesn't work for running a marathon or anything else."

Huzzah! Yes Sir Mr. Majority Leader!

Reid also said that Ryan's math doesn't work for taxes or Medicare.

"It doesn't work with anything that he's suggested or opined about. No more than his little assertion that I guess he thought no one would check it out,"

So keep it up Harry! Glad you are speaking up after all these years of senseless attacks from the Republicans, finally somebody is firing truth back in their faces.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
