What’s Next for Doug Collins

The news that Paul Ryan is retiring could be a boon for Doug Collins.

But Ryan can run a four hour marathon in three hours.

And he’ll return to full time living near the former GM Janesville Assembly plant he claimed to kinow so well that Barack Obama shut down when he was President in 2007.
