The announcement of Paul Ryan as Romney’s veep reminds me of nothing so much as this scene from Tombstone:

The Dems were going to try and use Ryan’s budget against the GOP anyway, so why not have Ryan—its most passionate, committed, intelligent defender—on the ticket to counter their attacks? The Democrats called down the thunder. And now they got it.

Also relevant:


“I was just foolin’ about,” the Democrat said when Ryan strode to the stage.
“I wasn’t,” Ryan replied.
