Because Ryan (allegedly) has a penis, so your argument is invalid.

If a biologist invents a series of musical notes that can be sounded by touching various shapes on a keyboard in sequence, and he teaches a monkey to play that exact same series of notes just as well as he can, is the monkey now as smart as the biologist?

Actually, that's pretty easily explainable. Ever heard a hipster quote from the Analects? That doesn't make them smart, nor does it make Confucius dumb.

If one of the keys is labeled "Destroy Medicare", I'd say they're both pretty dumb.

In this analogy the Koch brothers are the biologist, Grover Norquist is the monkey, and Paul Ryan is the keyboard.

Paul Ryan isn't even close to being the smartest guy in the party, but if you asked him a question about current events, I'm willing to bet he can at least understand the question, and while I may not agree with the answer he gives, I'm fairly confident he would give an answer.

Sarah Palin would be offended that you asked her a question.

she has no idea what he's agreeing to.

Ryan never claimed he was a foreign policy expert because of his proximity to Illinois.

Unless he's busy scarfing down vital corn dogs at a state fair; then, leave the man alone!

Please - you know first hand he has one.
 
2012-08-15 10:05:22 AM
I dunno, I think Ryan's ideas are pretty stupid. The difference for me is this though, he's evil-articulate and she's evil-babbly.

Babbling always makes you look stupid.
 
2012-08-15 10:06:19 AM
I'd suggest viewing some of the videos of Ryan getting his ass handed to him by his own constituants if you actually belive that crap about him being smart.

Conservatism is a clear sign of a lack of intelligence.

Also, at least they guy has a work ethic. She should have disappeared the second she stepped down from her governorship.

Ryan isn't that bright. They writings of Ayn Ran are his sole reason of getting into politics. These books are generally only popular among adolescents. He might as well have said Judy Bloom is the reason he's in politics. He's only smart compared to Sarah Palin, who probably never made it through the alphabet.
 
2012-08-15 10:11:48 AM
Paul Ryan is a decently intelligent guy (not "the smartest guy in the party", really, but sure, not dumb) who agrees with the GOP party line because he's an asshole-- but at least he's more or less thought it through and puts some mental effort into his positions, which are largely internally consistent.

Sarah Palin doesn't actually understand the GOP party line, it's just what people generally assume she's talking about because the handlers that feed her lines say it and the gibberish spilling randomly out of her mouth has many of the same keywords, albeit not in any kind of logical order.

//I can give credit to Ryan for not being outright stupid even while I disagree vehemently with the vast majority of his policy positions and don't just randomly denigrate the intelligence of everyone that disagrees with me. I don't think Mrs. Palin is stupid because she holds right-wing positions, I think she's stupid because her porn parody stated more intelligent policy positions more clearly while doing a DP scene with fake russians.

It's never too early to get into a Chinese Room argument. It's like reading one's horoscope over breakfast: a wonderful way to start the day by believing seven impossible things at once.

Everything I've been reading lays out the case that he says smart things in isolation. They never lead anywhere and he rarely explains how's and why's. It's all feel good bare assertions.

Imagine Ben Stein delivering Lou Gehrig's "Luckiest Man in the World" speech. Or "I Have a Dream". Or the Sermon on the Mount, for that matter. It's a phenomenon common to the species homo sapiens.

It's also why you can call your dog a stupid douchebag in that "awww, doggie" tone, and they start wagging their tails, but you yell at them about the walk you're about to go on and they look wounded. It's also why we use inflection to change the meaning of sentences (or, in the case of tonal languages, change the meaning of the word).

Oh man, I wanted to buy Paul Ryan a beer so bad. I almost did too. I handed it to him and then Romney slapped of out of his hand and said "bad Veep" then smacked him again on his pretty nose with a rolled up wall street journal and told him he'd be riding on the roof on the way back to the hotel. Ryan had such sad puppy dog eyes.

It's kinda funny that, of all the posts available for you to comment on, you grab a hold of the penis one, jerking it frantically.
Why are conservatives so obsessed with the penis?

If there were a People magazine for Republicans, Paul Ryan would always be on the cover and Sarah Palin would be the lady in the checkout line at Safeway who reads it without paying for it. This in no way makes them equivalent.

CSB: I was in a band in college and we were doing a fundraiser for our documentary projects and had a music night at a local pub. We planted one of our friends in the audience to yell "Freebird!" at the end of our set, which we then launched into. Good times.

So you're saying that Americans can handle reality just fine... but they're as stupid as dogs?

Palin cares about money and attention. I don't know what Ryan cares about, other than screwing people over that suck off the government teat (other than him, of course). Ryan is just the latest GOP Flavor of the Weak
