Ryan is one of the most informed and articulate Republicans to come along in years, and he's already established himself as an intellectual leader in the House.
He voted for the bailout. All over local talk radio spewing a bunch of nonsense at the time. A well read and spoken RINO is still a RINO.

I read the original on the AEI website. It was really good, but too long to post here.
Brooks was born in Toronto and grew up in New York City in Stuyvesant Town. He graduated from Radnor High School (located in a Main Line suburb of Philadelphia) in 1979. He graduated from the University of Chicago in 1983 with a degree in history.
He wrote a book of cultural commentary titled Bobos in Paradise: The New Upper Class and How They Got There, published in 2000, and followed it four years later with On Paradise Drive: How We Live Now (And Always Have) in the Future Tense.
Brooks was a visiting professor of public policy at Duke University’s Terry Sanford Institute of Public Policy, and he taught an undergraduate seminar there in the fall of 2006.
He and his wife live in Bethesda, Maryland. Brooks is Jewish.
Ryan was outstanding on Charlie Rose last night (watching Charlie Rose was a complete accident).
Well, fine. But it's not like this tells us anything about the perfection of his pant leg crease.
