Charlie Can Now Remove the Hook from His Mouth

Ever the booster of the highly vapid Paul Ryan (R -- Brady Bunch), Charlie Sykes dutifully reproduces the chart Ryanl ran in the Wall Street Journal below.

One little problem. The chart is supposedly based on the Congressional Budget Office analysis. The only problem is that the CBO's analysis ends in 2019. Ryan's staff therefore has turned to making crap up.

Now that the GOP has put Ryan front and center is good for us back home. For too long the local media has fawned over Ryan's imagined innovation and gravitas. The national media will be doing the job that should have been done in the Milwaukee metro area a long time ago.

  1. In addition to just making stuff up (the GOP's area of expertise these days!) past 2018 or whenever the CBO estimate ran to, the actual budget that Ryan's genius budget is being compared to in that chart is the last Bush budget.
