Politico has an interesting background piece on Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) which includes an anecdote showing his "keen sense of how his status had changed once he won his first election to the House in 1998."
A reporter he knew from his days as a congressional aide approached him to wish him well.
"Congratulations, Paul," said the reporter, who was several years older than Ryan.
"It's Mr. Ryan, now," he replied.
No surprise. Is there anything else any one needs to know about this colossal jerk?
