Golly gosh gee, step away from the internet for a day and holy heck breaks loose.
Seems that Politico’s Roger Simon, in a rather heavy-handed article that he now claims (after the fact, as Joe Gandleman points out) was intended as satire, pushed the idea that Paul Ryan is a Nice Respectable Wonk (as opposed to a truth-challenged numbers-fudging granny-starver) who is manfully rebelling against being contaminated by #Romneyshambles campaign cooties.
Thing is, much of this is very likely true.

The collapse for Mitt Romney isn’t the only good news Democrats have gotten recently. The chances of the party retaining control of the Senate have improved at least in part to strong polling coming out of Wisconsin.

We now have our first really solid evidence that choosing Rep. Paul Ryan (WI) may have actually helped Mitt Romney politically. The latest poll from PPP finds that Romney has a one point lead in Wisconsin and that Ryan may have helped cement the Republican base for him. That’s a 7 point pickup in Ryan’s home state.

After Wi. Supreme Court Justice tried to strangle another Justice, the state judicial commission filed an ethics complaint against him to be decided by his fellow justices. But Prosser came up with an idea to getall four of the conservative justices on the Court to simply recuse themselves from deciding on the complaint, because they witnessed the event personally.
