Paul Ryan, just a regular millionaire, up to his elbows in deer guts

Frank Bruni in the

Times, in a column titled, "Deer hunts and dirt bikes:"

Paul Ryan may not be running for president this time around, but if you have any doubt about his ambitions

for a long, prominent future in government, just look at his comments in a Q. and A.

published in Sunday’s Times. They’re a minor masterpiece of image calibration.

In the span of two dozen sentences, Ryan, the chairman of the House Budget Committee, mentioned the Bible... his truck and his

appetite for hard rock ... hunting — with a bow, no less... Then came the capper. “I butcher my own deer, grind the meat, stuff it in casings and then smoke it,” he said, making clear that Sarah Palin in all her moose-eviscerating glory has nothing on him.

Ryan may be a millionaire who was born with

a in his mouth, but the image he projects is that of a guy up to his elbows in deer guts.
