What's all this chatter about Republicans hoping for a Madison visit from Paul Ryan? That's like having the U. of Minnesota sending the jayvee in to battle for Paul Bunyan's Axe. It's like the Memphis Redbirds showing up to play for the final wildcard berth. I'd think conservatives would want their candidate in the 2012 election here, not the 2016 front runner.
Seriously, Ryan's the VP, which smells a little more like Oshkosh or LaCrosse. Shut down traffic for the guy at the top of the ticket. Let the veeps take a cab in from the airport and hold court at a high school gym. UW is a great state institution, a land grant university that has been lauded for decades. We deserve Mitt! Conservatives calling for the backup are revealing that they've already conceded the state.
