The headlines on a google news search for "paul ryan marathon" are proliferating.
PAUL RYAN ADMITS TO DISTURBING LIE, for example, in the Kansas City Star:
The Blaze stated "Paul Ryan Syas He Misstated Marathon Claim After Runner's World Calls Him Out."
The AP wrote:
The vice presidential hopeful acknowledged Saturday he had misstated his marathon time by more than an hour. He released a statement correcting the record after Runner's World magazine found evidence he had completed one marathon and finished in just over four hours.
Rojo doesn't have to drink any Kool-Aid. He and wejo were contaminated by the GOP brain toxins when they were just an itch in daddy's crotch:

Wow Rojo, you're really drinking the "liberal media" bias Kool-Aid aren't you.
The idea that the media has a liberal bias is something that conservatives have cooked up because they look awful when the facts are reported.
If there's one thing about Mitt, it's that he's a man of conviction! Just don't ask him about any position he's held over the last 25 years!
Perhaps my main reservation with Kerry, is that to me he seems to be more of a follower than a leader. Especially in these times, I want the President to be someone who knows his core values and convictions, and can make the tough decision even when it is unpopular. Kerry however always seems to be someone who is a good debater and can criticize someone else (which is always easy to do) without putting forth a vision of his own.
The truth is that the BroJo's are, to put it politely, pretty dumb when it comes to the state of the country. That doesn't make their website any less useful. It just means that they should shut up about things they clearly do not understand.
And although I'm not trying to go issue by issue and say why you should vote for President Bush, let me briefly turn to the economy. From the talk of Senator Kerry, you would think the economic climate of the country right now is terrible. And while obviously the economy could be in better shape things are pretty good right now and improving rapidly. The unemployment rate now is 5.4% which is the same as the unemployment rate in November 1996 when Bill Clinton was reelected (funny how you don't hear that mentioned in the press). The economy of the United States does not operate in a vacuum, and our economic growth rate is the greatest in the Western industrial world.
All of this is the case despite George Bush becoming President when the internet bubble burst and the country entered a world wide recession. Pile on this the terrible economic effects of the September 11th attacks which caused great economic damage, and our recent economic growth becomes even more impressive. I was an economics major in college, and it is a basic economic fact that tax cuts help stimulate the economy. Without the Bush tax cuts our economic growth would be much less than it is today and the recession would have been greater than it was.
