Gym? Dandy!

Why is it that when I - or most people, for that matter - get a little busy with work, the first thing to go is any semblance of a workout routine, but the leaders of the free world have so much time to hit the gym?

If I don't pay close enough attention at work, the worst thing that could happen is that a script doesn't meet a deadline or the right clip for a show doesn't get ordered. When George and Condi don't pay attention, terrorist groups win elections.

Bring back fat, out-of-shape policy wonks to the White House. Then at least we'll know that our elected leaders and their appointees are working.

Well, I remember a time when fat politicians symbolized that they were eating well while the nation starved and never worried about missing a meal. And now that some politicians are trying to be healthy and give a good image of not over-eating, we get mad?

Can't please anyone, I suppose.
