Paul Ryan makes the New York Times

Paul Ryan is a regular subject, and periodic contributor, to the outer wingnuttia that is the Wall Street Journal editorial page. But his moment in the sun has earned him a big sloppy kiss from NYT conservative columnist Ross Douthat.

Short version: Ryan is proposing an austere conservative welfare state (though Douthat shortchanges just how austere it would be) that might be the basis of compromise if Dems were willing to sacrifice their principles (more than they already have...) but it probably won't matter anyway because it's not as if Republicans really are going to support it anyway.
