Where Democrats threw grandma off a cliff

Last year, a bunch of democrats filmed a video that portrayed Republican Paul Ryan as wanting to toss grandma off a cliff.

Soon after seeing the video, I went to that spot to look for grandma, but the spot where she would have fallen was too hard to get to. Getting to shore level required a long trek northward, and the trek back south once at that level was significantly hindered by a bunch of boulders the last bunch of which I did not want to risk wearing dress shoes. In any case, I thought to myself, a bunch of liberals would not have littered around the beautiful Palisades with a grandma mannequin. They probably used some invisible cable.

The spot where they filmed the clip is right at the State Line Lookout on the Jersey side of the Hudson River. It is a beautiful spot with fun trails including the Giant Stairs.

The rock where they threw grandma off is usually a favorite perching spot for the vultures that call the park their home:

Those birds look cool from a distance:

It's only when you get up close & personal that you realize what they really look like:

Hi, I am from the government, and I will give you free health care.

PS: The area is beautiful, especially when trees change colors.


  1. Ahhh, that would be the ad that even clearly left leaning Factcheck deemed to honor with the "Lie of the Year" award.

  2. Yup, that's the one. Here is the link 2011 Lie of the Year for others who might come across this post.

    In general, I am not a fan of the whole "fact check" genre of journalism, but even a stopped clock is right twice a day.
