We’re used to politicians lying to us, but why would one lie about something totally unrelated to the election or to their jobs? Paul Ryan actually claimed to have run a marathon in less than three hours, something completely irrelevant and nearly impossible for a casual, non-professional runner. When a magazine devoted to running called him out for the unlikely nature of that claim, he backed off and said it was closer to 4 hours. Just a baffling claim that serves no purpose other than to make him look like a liar.
