I’ve been calling him Ol’ Syphilis, but this is good from a joke column at Politico:

“I hate to say this, but if Ryan wants to run for national office again, he’ll probably have to wash the stench of Mitt Romney off of him,” Craig Robinson, a former political director of the Republican Party of Iowa, told The New York Times on Sunday.

Coming from a resident of Iowa, a state where people are polite even to soybeans, this was a powerful condemnation of the Republican nominee.

Though Ryan had already decided to distance himself from the floundering Romney campaign, he now feels totally uninhibited. Reportedly, he has been marching around his campaign bus, saying things like, “If Stench calls, take a message” and “Tell Stench I’m having finger sandwiches with Peggy Noonan and will text him later.”

Even before the stench article appeared, there was a strong sign that Ryan was freeing himself from the grips of the Romney campaign.

It sucked in Paul Krugman.

Hey, it happens. A couple weeks ago I fell for a similar joke piece in which Todd Akin was said to have told a political reporter gayness was cured by breast milk.

Anyway, when everyone is making your campaign the butt of jokes, it’s over. No one is bothering to hide the contempt.

Another bad 24 hours, by viral accident, for Mitt Romney.
