Update: How Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan Tricked the Press

Mitt Romney decided on Paul Ryan on Aug. 1, the day after returning from his trip overseas to the Olympics in London and to Israel and Poland.

Ann Althouse has posted a great family photo and a blurb about the Congressman’s wife, Janna Ryan, of Oklahoma and Arlington, VA.
