Much is being made of the photo of President-elect Barack Hussein Obama shirtless and buff in Hawaii (where he’s still failed to memorialize “typical White person” granny).
But in fact, it’s a carefully orchestrated exercise in the homo-erotic, dreamed up by the Uber-conceit of Obama himself (look at me, I’m bugg) and his largely male team of advisor-ooglers. Just wondering if this is his sad attempt to mollify the gay men who are angry over his invitation to Pastor Rick Warren to make the invocation at the Inauguration. Don’t count that out. A lot of gay men can be bought off by a man who looks nice (in their eyes) with his shirt off.
I, myself, am not impressed at this wannabe Supermodel soon to become our Commander-in-Chief. You know what I think of Presidents who work out. While I’m all for exercising and staying in shapes, the Presidents who do spend way too much time on that and the rest of their time screwing up. Just look at the list of Presidents who work out, which reads like a Who’s Who of the Worst Presidents of Contemporary Times: Jimmy Carter–Jogging and Managing White House Tennis Court Schedules, George H.W. Bush–Jogging, Bill Clinton–Jogging (and Monica Water Polo), George W. Bush–Jogging and Bicycling, and now, Barack Hussein Obama–General Working Out and Supermodel Shirtless Posing.
I mean, really, Obama looks no different than the many gay supermodels on the mauve pages of Men’s Vogue and GQ. Here’re the models of “distinguished” bad Presidents in whose path he follows (couldn’t find a pic of Bush the Daddy jogging, but they’re out there and he is on the list):
Segues don’t count as exercise, but the picture says it all . . .
And then there was this horribly incompetent Secretary of State who constantly bragged about her workout routine and supermodeled it a la Obama:
On the other hand, not working out at all also makes really, really bad politicians:
Oh, and just to be fair, there’s this little chickie President-wannabe who also jogs far too much and reads far too little, to the point she couldn’t name a single paper she read and was completely ignorant of the most basic facts:
