Pinocchio: “My nose! What’s happened?”

The Blue Fairy: “Perhaps you haven’t been telling the truth.” Pinocchio: “Oh, but I have, every single word!” Good thing the Blue Fairy wasn’t auditing Paul Ryan’s speech at the Republican convention. We wonder if The Man Who Would Be Veep actually believes he told the truth, every single word — when he distorted Obama’s (non) role in the closure of a GM plant? When he attacked the president for trimming Medicare by the same amount his own budget would’ve cut? When he accused Obama of ignoring the debt commission even though it was commission member Ryan himself who helped kill its recommendations? Given his apparent willingness to tinker with the truth, would Ryan’s nose even fit into the Oval Office? And is this the man you want to be one yacht incident away from the presidency? Be honest!
