Ryan policymaker of the year? Scott Walker public employee of the year?

As noted here earlier, Paul Ryan will be honored by Politico as the health care policymaker of the year for 2011, despite not making one iota of policy in 2011, and almost none in 13 years in the House.

Ari Berman of The Nation writes:

Blogger Digby jokes that “To honor [Ryan] for his work on healthcare policy is akin to honoring Governor Scott Walker as Public Employee of the year.”

The Politico award is reminiscent of a similarly ridiculous “fiscal responsibility” honor bestowed upon Ryan earlier this year by three leading deficit hawk groups.

Details here.
