We didn't see much of Paul Ryan in this election, and I don't think we'll see much of him ever again. Seriously, he was nominated, appeared with Romney a few times, did that one debate, and then... nothing... When it got close to election time he was shoved in a closet, probably because of his extreme views. Romney was, after all, trying to pander the moderates and independents.
I hoped the GOP would get flattened, and I hoped, and still do, that they learn a lesson from this. The huge sums of money didn't help them. Kissing tea party ass didn't help them. They need to put on their big boy panties and realize they have to adapt with the times, and actually learn what compromise means again. On Anderson Cooper live this morning they were talking about how some of them have popped their heads out of their asses to announce it's spring, and they realize they alienated younger people and minorities.
