Paul Ryan to the jobless: 'Let them eat candy'

Premium wine enthusiast Paul Ryan offered an unemployed constituent some candy and a Packers-Badgers schedule, then refused to discuss labor issues because he was in a Labor Day parade.

Here's a stomach-turning video of Ryan's performance in the Janesville parade, along with some angry constituents. It's being pushed out by "Sly in the Morning," the pro-worker radio host in Madison, Wisc. Listen to Sly's take on Ryan here. Blogging Blue and Blue Cheddar have similar acerbic takes on the snooty congressman.
