Ryan gets to second base with Fox6

WITI-TV's long, wet, sloppy kiss of Paul Ryan was just foreplay, it turns out. There's another long piece, this one a mere 6 minutes long (the first one was 9-minutes -- a quarter hour of news!)

This one purports to be more serious and tell us about Ryan's budget plan, also known as the Road to Republican Ruin, but there's still plenty of time devoted to personal anecdotes and what passes for Republican humor:
Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner, Wisconsin's longest tenured member of congress, that pushed Ryan to run for congress...

One of the lessons Sensenbrenner taught Ryan early on was to approach the serious job with a sense of humor. Sensenbrenner said, "Not only do the two of us have a sense of humor, but we're very good friends.".

The two now say they work more closely together than any two members of congress. They frequently go out to dinner, and even exchange gag gifts every Christmas. Sensenbrenner says, "I gave him for Christmas, a pooping reindeer that pooped out brown candy...I got the cow-talytic converter, because we spent thousands of tax payer dollars trying to investigate bovine flatulence, and we know a lot about that in Wisconsin."
Heartless Jim Sensenbrenner as Ryan's mentor? Who knew? That explains a lot. Sensenbrenner would throw a senior out of the life raft without a second thought.
