New Yorker buys Ryan's bull

Howie Klein of Down With Tyranny blog is unimpressed -- to say the least -- with Ryan Lizza's "billion word" profile of Paul Ryan in the New Yorker :
Lizza's ponderous Ryan feature starts off badly, with an assurance that Ryan's "mastery" of the budget is almost legendary. Only for Inside-the-Beltway dolts... like Ryan himself, a third rate flim flam man who has managed to take in some 4th rate pundits-- and who don't know much about economics. He does know a lot of greed, selfishness, Madison Avenue marketing techniques and how to persuade gullible journalists and dumber politicians he's a serious figure.
