A break from doing the writing that I get paid to do, that is.
Barack Obama is to give his State of the Union speech tonight. The Republican response will be delivered by Representative Paul Ryan of Wisconsin. I've heard of Ryan, but had never really paid enough attention to see him in action. Boy, was I surprised.
Here is Ryan at the "bipartisan summit" on healthcare legislation last year. He surgically vivisects all the tricks and gimmicks in the Democrat plan. It didn't affect the outcome of the vote, but boy did he do a good job.
