Jim Burroway of Box Turtle Bulletin wrote a commentary about the choice of Paul Ryan as the GOP Veep nominee. He thinks Romney blew it because Romney has been working hard to be as opaque about his plans as he can get away with. Ryan and his budget are very specific. In addition, Romney needs to attract moderates and Ryan was selected to keep the Tea Party in line.
What caught my attention is a comment by TampaZeke. Romney is Mormon and according to Wikipedia Ryan is Catholic. Which makes this the first presidential ticket that isn't Protestant Christian. What will Fundies do with this choice?
