Paul Ryan’s Kind of Photo-Op

“With P90X guru Tony Horton, a workout photo I’m proud to share,” the Wisconsin lawmaker and avowed gym rat gushed on Twitter.

He also included a shout-out to Time magazine, the publication that last fall ran a bunch of workout photos of the iron-pumping candidate that were freely Photoshopped and mercilessly lampooned by hordes of online detractors.



Horton appears to be making the most of his swing through town, popping by the Canadian Embassy bright and early this morning to sweat the poutine out of our neighbors to the north.

He’s in Washington to attend the Congressional Award Gold Medal Ceremony, an annual event celebrating youth fitness. Per Horton, he’s being honored as this year’s Horizon Award recipient.

    “included a shout-out to Time magazine ” . I don’t know exactly what they mean by “shout -out ” but I’m hoping Mr. R gets revenge in one way or another on TIME magazine . Those so-called work-out photos of him were hiddious, and I very much doubt they were meant to be anything but a humiliation to Ryan. I say they were the result of a left-wing conspiracy to make him look as bad as can be. The pictures sure don’t look like the natural normal Ryan. They suceeded I think. It’s a wonder he could go on after that; he became the laughing stock of the campaigning. What an embarrasment–I’m suprised that didn’t ruin him; actualy, maybe it did .
