Donald, I wish I could look beyond your loose mouth, your impulsiveness, and your short fuse, but I can’t. They were fun, attractive, exciting and very different from what I had come to expect from politicians.

Hate to waste Sniperhunter’s sorta-kinda first post and add to the cacophony that is analysis of the tenuous connection between the Republican Party’s golden boy du-cycle, Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan, and the high priestess of principles, philosopher and novelist Ayn Rand. The moment seems, however, like serendipity.

Not jumping on this opportunity to discuss the irrelevancy of the analysis done today in light of the cluelessness about Rand shown by most ‘pundits’ would be – well – selfless. (more…)
