5 Things About Paul Ryan No One Else Will Tell You

Pin It

Everyone's talking and writing about Mitt Romney's VP pick, Wisconsin congressman, Paul Ryan.  But what they won't tell you are a few select tidbits I discovered for myself.

1. Ryan has the prettiest eyes of any Republican ever. They're like a cross between blue and sea foam green.  I mean have you seen them?  They're like something a fairy from another planet would bestow on a human baby, they're that pretty.

2.  Within minutes of Romney's announcement, Paul Ryan's cowlick set up a Twitter account: @PaulRyanCowlick.  One of his best tweets:

Unfortunately he only has 65 followers, but give him time.  Give him time.

3. It's been widely reported Ryan's a gym rat, but what's less well known is that he's a HUGE Zumba junkie, and an expert at the macarena.

4. The reason the Romney campaign used Jerry Goldsmith's theme from the film "Air Force One" for Ryan's introduction is because as a child, Ryan has a cameo in the film.  He's one of those guys on the tarmac looking gobsmacked after the highjackers get the plane back in the air.  His closeup was cut because Harrison Ford insisted no one in the film could have eyes prettier than his.

5. Many people know that Ryan loves fly fishing, but what they may not know is that he learned the skill as a child using sneaker laces and his goldfish named Sam.

As I find out more, I'll be sure to share it.
