Paul Ryan, the GOP nominee for Vice President, was rescued by secret service agents during his morning run. Ryan is one of the most dominant marathon runners in political history. He once said he ran a marathon in "under three, umm, two-fifty something." This morning he wanted to prove that he still has speed. So he sprinted away from the agents. Suddenly, Ryan's legs were engulfed in smoke. Fortunately, the quick thinking secret service agents managed to extinguish Ryan's pants before he was injured.
The fire department is investigating the cause of the fire. Initially, it was thought that because of Ryan's dramatic speed; the friction from the pants cuffs ignited the fire. They said that it was NOT a terrorist attack.
But the investigator has concluded it was fiction not friction that created the heat. He said it was the constant lying that set Ryan's pants on fire. He said firefighters all over the country are always on alert at Romney/Ryan speeches. He said that firefighters frequently extinguish the flames at Romney/Ryan events when their pants catch on fire.
