Rogue II - The Stench
Craig Robinson, a former political director of the Republican Party of Iowa: “I hate to say this, but if Ryan wants to run for national office again, he’ll probably have to wash the stench of Romney off of him.”
This led to a hilarious Roger Simon Politico satire suggesting that VP Candidate Paul Ryan develop his own version of "going rogue."
In Simon's vision, Ryan could feature non-campaign approved Powerpoint presentations as well as contemptuous references to his wannabee boss Mitt Romney, "If Stench calls, take a message."
"Let Ryan be Ryan and let the Stench be the Stench."
"Tell Stench I'm having finger sandwiches with Peggy Noonan and will text him later."
Peggy Noonan of course is the conservative WSJ columnist who first raised the red flag that the Romney campaign had in fact become a "rolling calamity" much to the chagrin of Stench wife Ann, who whined, "This is hard!"
Ohio has just shifted to "leans Obama" at RCP. If conditions continue to deteriorate for the Romney campaign, we may indeed witness a Ryan effort to minimize the damage to his future prospects.
