You can listen to the audio of the radio broadcast yesterday morning on WTDY. Sly gives out Ryan's home address, giggles about going over to the house to put candy there as a prank, and urges readers to head over there, with candy. He goes into detail about the directions to the house, the number of children who live there, and the physical attractiveness of the Congressman's wife.
The Ryan in question is Paul Ryan, the prominent Wisconsin congressman.
Meanwhile, we are urged to share our experiences in other areas:
As the 2012 presidential campaign heats up, President Obama’s campaign team has set up a new Web site, AttackWatch.com, to challenge negative statements about the president made by Republican presidential candidates and conservatives.
Obama for America national field director Jeremy Bird told ABC News that the site’s goal is to offer “resources to fight back” against attacks. Mostly, that means fact checking statements from the likes of GOP presidential contenders Mitt Romney and Rick Perry and conservative commentator Glenn Beck and offering evidence to the contrary. The site is designed in bold red and black colors, and uses statements like “support the truth” and “fight the smears.”
Subscribers to this noble effort are encouraged to forward specific examples to the authorities, er, I mean, the Obama campaign, which will then take the leads and then offer a stern gaze in the general direction of the offender or something. This is good news. I've been meaning to turn myself in for a long time. And if I play my cards right, maybe the Twin Cities equivalent of Sly will give out my home address and directions to eager listeners.
I was also heartened to see that Garry Trudeau has seen fit to use his comic strip to retail stories about Sarah Palin's 1980s sex life.
So how do we describe the world in 2011? Scorched earth, I guess.
