Ryan's Taxes

Kind of amused and bemused by a conspicuously placed story in the local newspaper with a big headline about Paul Ryan releasing his tax returns - really? Slow news day? I find this faux imbroglio more interesting about what it says about the media than the candidates: President Obama's strategy of making this election about legally paid taxes might work if the media complies.

I also find it funny and hypocritical that the tax returns of Obama's Secretary of the Treasury Timothy Geithner (which, unlike Romney's or Ryan's, were actually not in compliance with the law) doesn't seem to bother Obama or the media too terribly much.
