Just in time for the GOP VP candidate's debate debut, Time offers up some pics of the candidate flexing some nondebate-related muscles.
The internet is abuzz about Republican Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan's guns – his biceps, that is. Time Magazine has released photos from a shoot it did with the Distinguished Gentleman from Wisconsin back in 2011, when Ryan was a runner-up for Time's "Person of the Year." The photo shoot apparently focused on Ryan's workout regimine – the popular and rigorous P90X. The pics are making their way around the web and have quite a few folks who may not be fans of his fiscal policies admitting the guy knows how to do some heavy lifting.

Republican House Majority Leader Mike Turzai, who created a rallying cry for Voter ID opponents when he said the bill was going to "allow Governor Romney to win the state of Pennsylvania," responds to the voter ID development.
Republican House Majority Leader Mike Turzai, who made headlines in June after telling a group of fellow GOP supporters that Pennsylvania's Voter ID bill will "allow Governor Romney to win the State of Pennsylvania," released a statement on today's decision to delay the implementation of the law until after the presidential election. Turzai's June statement, made to members of the Republican State Committee, was spun by critics as a Republican admission that the Voter ID bill was created to suppress Democratic turnout, not prevent voter fraud. The Allegheny County representative admitted to poor phrasing, but his gaffe was featured on The Colbert Report and The Daily Show with John Stewart, as well as several other national media outlets. …

The Philadelphia mayor spoke out against GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney who will visit the Union League in Philadelphia and Valley Forge Military Academy in Radnor.
One day before GOP presidential candidate Gov. Mitt Romney visits the Union League and Valley Forge Military Academy, Pennsylvania Democrats spoke out about his visit. In a press call Thursday, Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter and Pennsylvania Democratic Party Chairman Jim Burn criticized the former Massachusetts governor's tax plan and said Romney's out of touch with the common Pennsylvanian.

However, this time it wasn't carrying Romney or running mate Paul Ryan, who were a thousand miles away at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla., but acting as a main attraction for a watch party organized by high-level Pennsylvania staff. "We did an in-state bus tour this week, starting in Erie and traveling down to Pittsburgh, Gettysburg and Villanova," said Billy Pitman, …
