VP candidate Paul Ryan praises “Brendan Wheaton.”

I just have to chuckle at this one. I have little to zero interest in politics, and adhere to the age-old saying: “they’re all idiots.” But Republican candidate Mitt Romney’s running partner, Paul Ryan, took it a step further during a recent campaign stop in Ohio. He praised the Cleveland Browns, and even went on to praise current rookie quarterback, Brendan Wheaton.

Pretty sure that says Weeden, not Wheaton. (photo courtesy of Cleveland.com)

Wait a second, who? Brendan Wheaton? Mr. Ryan, don’t you mean Brandon Weeden? This should be a lesson for politicians, unless you know what you’re talking about, don’t use sports to appeal to people.
