It’s the kind of gaffe we’ve come to expect from the campaign trail: a politician trying to dabble in an expertise not his own.
On Wednesday Paul Ryan visited the Cleveland Browns practice facility and according to the Plain Dealer Ryan told everyone how much he enjoyed watching Weeden play at OSU while pointing at Colt McCoy.
He tried to correct his mistake once he realized what he was doing:
You always had your helmet on.
Weeden seemed to have a good sense of humor about it if we’re going by this photo.
To make matters worse though, that photo I linked says “Oklahoma QB – Brandon Weeden.”
Oh, and Scott Fujita tweeted this…
Today’s locker room laugh from practice was hearing how Paul Ryan looked Colt McCoy dead in the eye & said “great job at Oklahoma State”

How badly does Colt want out of Cleveland right now?
How badly does Paul Ryan not want my vote right now?
