A tale of two workouts

Michelle Malkin nails it today, and good.

Check out how the Washington Post covered the workouts of two fitness fanatics -- President-Elect Barack "The Messiah" Obama and George W. Bush. First, The Messiah:

“The sun glinted off chiseled pectorals sculpted during four weightlifting sessions each week, and a body toned by regular treadmill runs and basketball games.”

“Obama has gone to the gym for about 90 minutes a day, for at least 48 days in a row.”

“Gym Workouts Help Obama Carry the Weight of His Position.”

“He doesn’t think of it as something he has to do — it’s his time for himself, a chance for him to reflect. It’s his break. He feels better and more revved up after he gets in his workout.”

Now GWB:

“Am I the only person who finds this disturbing?…What I mean is the fact that Bush has an obsession with exercise that borders on the creepy.”

“Does the leader of the free world need to attain that level of physical achievement?”

“It’s nice for Bush that he can take an hour or two out of every day to run, bike or pump iron. Unfortunately, most of us have more demanding jobs than he does.”

Mainstream media bias? Huh? Where?

And will all those people who mocked conservatives for finding Sarah Palin attractive apologize given their non remotely contained lust for the shirtless Obama? They've gone far beyond anything conservatives did.

One of my relatives was talking about the shirtless Obama pics, but she just noted that he was ripped. Haven't seen it myself, and don't really care to.

Guess somebody never heard of "goose and gander", huh? And why should we care whether our President...whomever it may be...has glistening pects or not? I don't care whether he exercises his body as long as his brain gets an honest work-out trying to resolve current situations.

Y'all have seen O's choices of food while on the campaign trail...enough fatty foods to severely coat the arteries. Then there is the addiction to cigarettes. Nicotine is an appetite depressant. Me thinks O spends more time puffin' than exercising!
