Some overnight vetting of Paul Ryan, via Philip Bump


The overnight vetting of Paul Ryan.

From August, 2010, the Times“A Young Republican With a Sweeping Agenda”

From August of this year, Ryan Lizza’s “Fussbudget”

Lizza also shares this photo from Ryan’s high school yearbook, in which Ryan was named “biggest brown-noser.”

Here’s Ryan on C-SPAN in 1998, when he first joined Congress.

Here’s his big ol’ house in Janesville, Wisconsin.

Some other notes:

Some early analysis of the pick from Lizza and The Atlantic’s James Fallows (who is not a fan).

The best early analysis is Ezra Klein’s “Seven Thoughts on Ryan”.

But if you’re looking for detail, here is a 290-page opposition research book on Ryan, released by a Super PAC.

Undoubtedly, more to come.

Gaywrites also points out that Ryan has a very weak gay-rights record.
