Paul Ryan And His Anti-Comic Book Gaffe

Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan was attacking President Obama in Virginia yesterday, for not having an agenda for a second term as President.

“Just a couple of days ago he came up with a slick new brochure, you know, with less than two weeks left to say, ‘Oh I do actually have an agenda,’ It is a slick — well, comic book — that was his word,” referring to a line from a member of the crowd there.

Yes, Paul, but you still used it. The term “comic book” as a derogatory word, for something flimsy, ephemeral, without content. You may have the same name as a comic book artist, but you are no Paul Ryan, penciller of the Fantastic Four…

President Obama grew up reading comics, and read them into his twenties, including the likes of Spider-Man and Conan The Barbarian. I doubt he’d be caught making a gaffe like this.

Not that it will be a gaffe to many. But comic book fans? When it comes to tribal politics, you know which way to vote…
