Thursday night on Comedy Central’s “The Colbert Report,” host Stephen Colbert discussed one of the hottest political news topics of the 2012 Republican National Convention, the steaming pile of lies in vice presidential nominee  Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI)’s speech from Wednesday.  Ryan, known — like Newt Gingrich — as a Republican “ideas guy,” took the mic on Wednesday night to thunderous applause from the delegates in attendance.  It’s too bad that, as Colbert said, the biggest idea in Ryan’s speech was “Lying is handy.”

“But the real game changer was when Ryan brought the hurt-stick to Obama,” said Colbert, cueing up the part of the speech where Ryan talked about the now-infamous GM auto plant in Janesville, Wisconsin that closed before President Barack Obama took office, but which the GOP is currently trying to blame Obama for, in spite of the fact that the Janesville canard has been debunked again and again.

“It’s a shame that factory couldn’t have lasted another year,” Colbert said. “It would have still been open when Obama took office.”

The host blamed the “Lamestream nit-pick patrol” for casting a pall on Ryan’s brilliant crowd-pleaser of a speech.

“Here’s where they say he was lying,” said Colbert, re-starting the speech. “Right…there when he starts moving his lips!”
