Well Rep. Paul Ryan continues to try and reshape his image to attract undecided voters. He is now renouncing his heroine Ayn Rand, the same Ayn Rand who Ryan has previously said motivated him to go into public service and who nurtured his ideas about public policy.
Instead, he now thinks St. Thomas Aquinas is his hero. This is going to be a hard sell since Ryan has praised Rand over and over during his career and described her as one of the primary sources of his political and policy views. It will be even harder when the undecided voters learn that Rep. Ryan requires that each member of his staff read Rand’s novels. But of course, when affiliation with someone becomes politically toxic, a principled politician like Rep. Ryan throws her under the bus.
I feel nauseus.

But perhaps in honor of Paul Ryan, some fool is funding a quicky sequel:
