Skip to comments.Paul Ryan: Congressman, fitness nut, catfish noodler
Posted on 08/11/2012 2:32:56 PM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife
* Born and raised in the community of Janesville; Ryan is a fifth-generation Wisconsin native.
* Ryan moonlighted on Capitol Hill as a waiter at the Tortilla Coast restaurant and as a fitness trainer at Washington Sport and Health Club.
* One of Ryan's summer jobs in college was as an Oscar Mayer salesman in Minnesota, peddling turkey bacon and a new line called "Lunchables" to supermarkets.
* Ryan worked as a marketing consultant for his family's construction business before being elected to Congress. The company -- Ryan Incorporated Central -- began as an earthmoving business created by his great-grandfather in 1884.
* Ryan's hobbies include hunting and fishing. He is a bowhunter and belongs to his hometown's archery association - the Janesville Bowmen.
* For fun, Ryan noodles catfish, catching them barehanded with a fist down their throats.
* Ryan listens to Rage Against the Machine and Led Zeppelin

That said, he's probably still on the golf course right now ...and not at the WH.
And yes...that kind of behaviour is sick beyond belief.
Noodling catfish isn’t that hard, anyway
Obama noodles Barney Frank all the time,
or so Harry Reid says, I heard.
I love it! Ryan noodles. I thought that was an southern thing.
I think when the liberals read this, the loud THUD we hear will be them falling collectively to the floor in a dead faint. :)
I’m with you. I think the Led Zeppelin cinched it, though I have to respect someone who can catch a catfish with his bare hands.

Must have learned it from his Okie inlaws.
I won't hold that against him.
Attention Ben Burch. I hate to spoil your fantasy but this is NOT the same as fisting.
The Left is utterly apoplectic. THEY ARE D O N E and they KNOW it.
We're gettin' ready to take out the Trash...Cheese Head style.
The house in the background looks like a nice, clean, friendly, well kept middle class home ( one that I could identify with).
“One of Ryan’s summer jobs in college was as an Oscar Mayer salesman”
I’ve been doing some opposition research, and we could be in deep doo doo. Did you know that those Oscar Meyer Weinermobiles have quite a felony record ?
Its been ticketed in Arizona (for having a stolen license plate, YUMMY), Chicago (for parking), and Texas ( for speeding), destroyed a house deck in Paul Ryans home state of all places, caused a minor injury to a 7yr. old child, and was picketed by the Outdoor Circle in Hawaii, as it violated its billboard ordinance.
There are still 8 of these 27foot long 11 foot high Weinermobile behemoths riding around the 57 states probably creating more havoc. PETA will soon be making them public enemy #1 much to the relief of SUV’s everywhere.
And does one really want Oh I wish I were an Oscar Meyer weiner as the campaign theme song?
So much for the Romney vetting team.
Should be interesting if we have a Patriots-Green Bay Super Bowl this year?
Geez, I was afraid to find out what a catfish noodler does, LOL.
Somebody convince me that the budget he presented was a ruse, and he really believes in eliminating entire departments and returning to a constitutional government. Otherwise, what are we so excited about? It’s just a couple of RINOs.

Sounds like he will be a good choice, I would like to see him ‘set the example’ and resign his seat so he could say ‘he put the election ahead of his seat etc.
I always figured when People like Edwards, Kerry, Gore, McCain, even Palin, don’t step down they are kind of admitting they aren’t going to win.
Bad as Bob Dole was/is he at least resigned his seat to run.
On the ‘fun’ side I would like to have seen either Jindal or Rubio get the nod so we could see what the Libs would come up with in regards to the Constitutionality of their run.
Don’t forget what the BO ‘machine’ tried to do to McCain because he was born in the CZ despite the fact that his father was stationed there.
It does/did show some stones though, accusing McCain of being illegal while their ‘boy’ had a FN as a father etc...
Like W was a wimp for flying aircraft off carriers, in war, at the age of 19 or so and Clinton was ‘ok’ as a draft dodging coward...
We are definitely in “Bizzarro World”
I didn’t realize that!
I’m with you. The noodling sealed the deal. I’m on board.
Now there's just somethin' real unnatural about that right there. Obama doin' what, where? "eeeeuuuuwwwwwwwwwww"
