Ryan's Clothes are Too Big

The fashion critics looked at the announcement of Rep. Paul Ryan as Mitt Romney's running mate and agree on one thing: Ryan needs better fitting clothes.

New York Times: "Yet if Mr. Ryan was chosen to bring youth and vigor and a kind of Ayn Rand boldness to the G.O.P., as the commentators kept saying, then his jacket was killing it. So much for his lethal six-pack. He was swimming in his coat, like Tom Hanks in Big when he becomes a kid again."

Washington Post: "Ryan, a high-ranking House Republican, known as a stickler for numbers and a devotee of hard-core workouts, seemed oddly unconcerned about the clothes he wore during the most important announcement of his political career. How could a fitness buff with 6 to 8 percent body fat wear a suit that looked two sizes too big?"
