Salon introduces its question of the day, where we invite you to lead the conversation.

As the "golden boy of the Ayn Rand crowd" Paul Ryan gets ready to depart as House Speaker, Heather Digby Parton imagines his next act will be trolling us in the realm of TV punditry. But what do you think the ex aspiring vice president will go from here? A brief downtime before an attempted return to politics? Cashing in on the speaking circuit? Opening up a cupcake shop in a small town and devoting the rest of his life to perfecting the best buttercream?
