As Twitchy reported last week, Chris McMurray, owner of Crumb and Get It bakery, turned down an offer to host a Biden visit. Why did the owner of a newly established bakery turn down such an offer? In his own words: “Very simply, ‘you didn’t build that.’”
Today, Chris McMurray introduced GOP vice presidential candidate Rep. Paul Ryan in Roanoke, Va.
The bakery also provided cookies for the huge crowd in attendance.

Some can’t help but wonder if the media will pull its typical lapdog tricks. Remember Joe the Plumber?
You built your business, Mr. McMurray. And conservatives, who believe in freedom and in the entrepreneurial spirit, have your back.
Update: Rep. Ryan offers Crumb and Get It cookies to reporters.
