    Default 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,?referringto a line from amemberof 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...

    Steve Ditko is somewhere, quietly weeping.

    Still will be a better VP than Joe Biden.

    Who I thought this would be about...
    ShadowMax: Has anyone actually verified this is the real Steve Wacker?

    Me: Quick Steve, tell us something only Steve Wacker would know.

    Steve Wacker: [The Marvel relaunch] secretly is a reboot.

    Me: If you mean the continuity won't match up with any of the preceding issues, anyone could have predicted that.

    Never will try to muster the energy to get upset about anything that comes out of the mouths of these bought-out, lying moron politicians

    Paul Ryan is a fraud and hypocrite regardless of comic books.

    Their all that to some degree.

    Y'know, I get kind of annoyed when the trade enthusiasts call single issues "floppies", but I'd be pretty embarrassed with myself if I'd refrain from voting for a candidate I otherwise liked because he didn't give comics the proper level of respect.
    I'll assume you liked this post.
