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:
First prez election with no military vet on either ticket since 1932.— daveweigel (@daveweigel) August 11, 2012
Last year we found Florida voters opposed Ryan plan by 16 points, North Carolina voters opposed it by 23— PublicPolicyPolling (@ppppolls) August 11, 2012
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.
