Game on. You’ve probably read all you can stand to read about this by now since it was everywhere on the internets yesterday, but do read Charlie Pierce if you haven’t already – he’s the best cure for mainstream media stuffiness – and Michael Grunwald, who seems to have escaped the reality distortion field in the mainstream media regarding Ryan. I agree with Ed Kilgore that this sets up the election as a choice between competing visions rather than a referendum on the incumbent. This is also what Team Obama wanted the election to be about. Bridge players have a saying that “if both sides are playing the same suit, one side is crazy”. We’ll know soon enough who’s crazy here.
