Paul Ryan Even Can't Tell the Truth About His Marathon Time

Paul Ryan cannot even be honest about how fast he can run. To be more accurate, Paul Ryan lied about how fast he could run twenty years ago. In fact, his own brother called him out on his lie and mocked him relentlessly. Ryan had claimed that he once ran a 26 mile marathon in under three hours.

“The race was more than 20 years ago, but my brother Tobin—who ran Boston last year—reminds me that he is the owner of the fastest marathon in the family and has never himself ran a sub-three. If I were to do any rounding, it would certainly be to four hours, not three. He gave me a good ribbing over this at dinner tonight.”

The safe thing to do when dealing with Paul Ryan and math is to assume massive rounding errors on pretty much every number he gives you. The man is the biggest liar we have ever seen on a presidential or vice-presidential level. He is a bigger liar than Sarah Palin, Dick Nixon, or Spiro Agnew. If he's moving his lips, he's telling a lie.
