Stupid Historical Analysis Bullshit

If you want your head to explode, read this article on fitness and the presidency:

I mean, really. BMI of presidents and candidates? I also love it how they picture Clinton and Obama in workout clothes (really? Pictured with a basketball?) but Bush is in his presnit suit. Where's the big-ass belt buckle and his brush-clearin' jeans?

Personally, I wouldn't trust someone who is only 5'7" to run the free world. Would you???

ps. Advice to Barack: dribbling at chin level is asking for a steal and a fast break.

Dad always said you were the smartest player we had ;).

Publishing pictures of Clinton in those 1980s running shorts outweighs all potential denigration of the Republicans' "fitness" by-visual-implication. Seriously, didn't he have a stylist or something? Who dropped that ball?

(oo, I made a pun. spending too much time around Dad lately ;). )

If you think about it, all Senator Obama has to do to win this election is run a series of campaign commercials that focus on one thing: how old and decrepit John McCain is. Words are unnecessary; any slide show should do the trick.

I'm just hoping that, following the trend of the last forty-something years, the more charming candidate wins.

Kennedy was more charming than Nixon, Carter more charming than Ford, Reagan more charming than Carter, Bush the father more charming than Dukakis, Clinton more charming than Bush, Clinton more charming than Dole, W & Gore tied for charm, W more charming than Kerry.

Now Obama is waaaaaaay more charming than McCain.
