    The Stench bit was a satire made up by the writer apparently. It wasn't a real nickname.

    So Paul Ryan is referencing a writer who called Romney "Stench" while telling reporters he is eating finger sandwiches with Peggy Noonan?


    What a jokester this guy is... Maybe someone needs to tell Paul Ryan that what makes a joke funny, is that its a two way street.


    Ryan called Romney "Stench" in referencing the fact that a reporter said that he needs to was himself of teh "stench" of Romney if he were to ever run again.



    I get it....Its just a name that a political FOE would use as a joke, not his running mate. Especially as a joked reference to running for office. Meaning he is listening to advice from reporters about his next move.


    this is an odd 'defense' of this by the right.

    Yes. He certainly said what was quoted in both pieces. Its the understanding of what he said that is up for debate.

    He was JOKING about washing himself of Romney's stench if he ever had to run again. Get it?

    Stench?

    Meaning he might not hold office anytime soon because the guy running for president is toxic?

    Get it?

    Haha?

    Its funny, because they are losing, and will lose....get it?

    no?

    neither do I.

    So in the link labeled "Politico," which in fact does not go to Politico, we have a Bloomberg guy quoting another guy at Politico saying the article was "satire..." even though he complains simultaneously that it wasn't funny enough to be satire.

    Let's be fair and pull up the actual Politico piece. It now has a disclaimer pointing to the satirical intent at the end:

    Paul Ryan vs. The Stench - Roger Simon - POLITICO.com

    Lots of it is pointedly funny (for example, the description of PowerPoint,) and he did make sure he said "reportedly" whenever discussing Ryan's description of Romney as "Stench."

    But yanno, I'm still going to call him that.

    It would be like Biden "reportedly" yelling to his staff that "If Barack the Magic Negro calls, tell him I'm eating fried chicken with Rachel Madow"

    you know...funny stuff......satire...




    was Gilligan also satire in referencing the sinking ship they are on?




    a 3 hour tour.....

    :confused2: Somethin' like that.

    This is just the right-leaning Politico having some fun with the fact that the Republican commentariat has rebelled against Stench, and extending it to Ryan doing likewise.

    However, today's clip was kind of funny, where a crowd was chanting "Ryan Ryan Ryan" and Romney had to correct them to try to get his name included. Nobody kept chanting when he explained how to do it right LOL.
