We didn't make it to the Manassas rally yesterday but Stacy McCain was there:
The next polls you see out of Virginia . . . Well, look, the “gender gap” will evaporate instantly now that Paul Ryan’s on the ticket. Trust me on this — chicks dig him. It was like Sinatra with a crowd of bobby soxers at the Paramount in 1944. Elvis at the Overton Park bandshell in Memphis in 1956. Total swoonsville. As I explained it on Twitter:
By all accounts, the crowd was large and enthusiastic:
swamped the downtown area and, according to Twitter, lined the streets cheering and waving "like a parade" as the campaign bus rolled off.
By the way, when was Andrea Mitchell appointed the spokesperson for suburban moms? Doug Powers:
After Mitt Romney announced his choice of Paul Ryan today, NBC Chief White HouseAnd then Doug goes there:
SpokeswomanCorrespondent Andrea Mitchell took the the baton handoff from the Obama administration for her leg of the “war on women” relay:
Andrea Mitchell loses her voice while reacting to the Paul Ryan speech: “This is a base election. This is not a pick for suburban moms, this is not a pick for women.”
Hey, if women don’t mind Mrs. Alan Greenspan speaking on their behalf about what they find appealing, that’s their business, but I think many of them will object.Oh dear. Well, there's no accounting for taste. But it's easy to explain why Paul Ryan is a great choice. Stacy quotes Michelle Malkin and it's worth repeating here:
Paul Ryan is fresh, young, energetic, smart, courageous, and ready for prime time.And Ryan gets the urgency of our fiscal crisis. He needs to hammer on that from now until November 6th.
Paul Ryan is a policy wonk AND a front-line warrior whose budget and long-term entitlement reforms have the entire Dem-Soros-lapdog media machine unhinged.
Paul Ryan is ready to fight false media narratives.
Paul Ryan is battle-tested against the White House.
Paul Ryan won’t cut and run when the going gets tough.
Many thanks to Michelle Malkin for the link.
