Paul Ryan's Wednesday night speech was a much-needed shot of adrenaline for an otherwise sleepy GOP convention, despite the fact that his remarks were chock-full of "brazen lies."
But for Fox News to acknowledge Ryan's inaccuracies -- wow.
Sally Kohn's piece, "Paul Ryan's speech in 3 words," calls the candidate's remarks "dazzling," but also "deceiving," and "distracting":
To anyone paying the slightest bit of attention to facts, Ryan's speech was an apparent attempt to set the world record for the greatest number of blatant lies and misrepresentations slipped into a single political speech.
Mitt Romney finally clinched the GOP nomination Tuesday night, and his wife Ann's speech was heartfelt, if stiff.
But really, the only thing worth noting from Day 1 of the Republican National Convention is that Chris Christie, Republican governor of New Jersey, appeared during his keynote speech to be at his heaviest weight since bursting onto the national political scene several years ago -- and members of the media were less than compassionate.
The GOP star is no stranger to fat jokes, however, and played it cool, as usual:
Introduced to the Michigan delegation at the convention Tuesday morning by a woman from a restaurant trade group, Christie could not resist.
"Did she just ask if I'm aware of the restaurant industry? Seriously?" Christie deadpanned. "Yes, I am mildly aware of the restaurant industry, in New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Connecticut. Yeah, the entire region!"
