If you want to make a few extra bucks, put a Groucho glasses vending machine outside Paul Ryan’s townhalls. Just a hunch.

From USA Today:

GREENFIELD, Wis. — At the last of four events on Rep. Paul Ryan’s “listening tour” of his district Thursday, he called on a man in the front row of a high school auditorium, then instantly recognized him.

“You changed clothes!” Ryan told Steve Jozefczyk. The 54-year old salesman from Franklin, Wis., had asked Ryan several critical questions from the front row of an event six hours earlier in Waterford, when he wore a shirt and tie. In Greenfield, it was a black “Faux News” parody T-shirt.

Josefczyk admitted trying to trick Ryan into calling on him again. But Ryan listened anyway.

Ryan might be recognizing a lot of the same faces in the crowd in coming days:

Citizens Action of Wisconsin and the Milwaukee Labor Council have enlisted a traveling band of seniors to follow Paul Ryan’s every move while he conducts town halls across the state.

“They have been and they will be trailing all his listening sessions and do their best to get themselves heard.

For some reason I’m reminded of the sitcom “Cheers” when Woody was acting in a local production of “12 Angry Men” — except they only had six actors, so as a result “we all had to act twice as furious.”

As for the master of disguise at Paul Ryan’s townhall(s), a quick search brought me to this book that I think is written by the same Obamaniac.
