• Paul Ryan v. Your Grandparents

    Let's do a quick inventory of all the people that Republicans are trying their best to alienate in their quest for a permanent majority: women, black people, brown people, immigrants, poor people, middle class people and sick people.

    Oh, and I guess we can now add old people to the list

    Rep. Paul Ryan's (R-Wis.) political group went on the attack Monday against AARP, calling one of the most powerful lobbies a "left-leaning pressure group."

    Ryan's Prosperity PAC sought to push back on attacks by AARP against the House Budget Committee chairman's 2012 budget, specifically its proposed changes to Medicare…¬†AARP launched ads last week warning against "harmful cuts" to Medicare and Social Security it said Republicans favored.

    In case you're unaware, "left-leaning pressure group" in conservative parlance is just, like, one step down from "militant terrorist organization."

    So, yeah. Harsh.
