    It would appear people are more interested in Rep. Paul Ryan's (R-Wisc.) upper body than in his budget plan.

    Writing for The New York Times' Campaign Stops blog, Seth Stephens-Davidowitz reports that Google searches for "Paul Ryan shirtless" are nine times more frequent than searches for "Paul Ryan budget."
