(Washington Post)   The Washington Post proves that, despite what mean ol' John Stewart says about them, the media can be serious about the issues: "How could a fitness buff with 6 to 8 percent body fat wear a suit that looked two sizes too big?"   (washingtonpost.com) divider line 88

-1 for "John" Stewart.

I bet Romney picked out Ryan's suit. That would explain the whole "mini-me" thing he has going on.

Its John Daily, subby.
 
2012-08-15 09:45:37 AM
I really don't care, but with the current fashion for men being the skinny suit (which I always think looks too small) wouldn't it be closer to five sizes too large?
 
2012-08-15 09:45:44 AM
Ok, that's it. No way I'm voting for someone who doesn't use a tailor. Who's with me?

I'm sure it's on purpose. You know, they're so disdainful of Jon Stewart, and so unaware of his existence, that subby can't even spell his name right. "Haha, I've just spelled your name wrong! This means you have no power, and I don't even know who you are! That's why I spelled your name wrong! Get it??"

"Paul Ryan looked like what he is: a rumpled, think-tank policy wonk sort of guy,"

Frankly, we need some normal people in office. I doubt that's the case here though.

Well, time to give him the VP candidate clothing budget (otherwise known as the Palin credit card) and send him on his way.

FTFA: "Paul Ryan looked like what he is wishes to come across as to potential campaign contributors & the Fox News audience: a rumpled, think-tank policy wonk sort of guy," said Christine K. Jahnke, president of Positive Communications, a Washington-based media and image-consultant company...

6% body fat is a dangerous place to be for a man in his 40s.

His face will shrivel up over-night if he isn't careful.

/ass or face applies to men too.

Yes some people are. For instance, the author of the article. As for other people...well...nope, that about does it.

Ryan, not so much.

In these dark times when politicians lie and steal, and the money hungry corporate owned media can't be trusted...

Thank God Almighty for JON STEWART


like a beacon in the darkness...

I think the Washington Post only needs to worry if John Stewart says they're working with Sinestro and building a giant yellow tent over their building.
 
2012-08-15 10:03:39 AM
why do "fitness buffs" always look so gay when they're 6-8% body fat
 
2012-08-15 10:04:44 AM
I hadn't noticed the suit thing... but when I saw the video of his introduction by Romney, I did notice that Ryan had his hair standing up in the back ala Dennis the Menace. i just figured Republican campaigns have trouble holding on to a good hair stylist to make sure his hair looks good (either because some won't work with them out of principle due to the anti-gay campaigning or because candidates and staffers keep dating them and then things get all weird).

Huh. Ryan doesn't LOOK Persian.
 
2012-08-15 10:15:32 AM
At least he doesn't seem to be wearing pleated pants, in which case tailoring really wouldn't have helped...

Even when you buy off the rack you attempt to find clothes that fit you. Even the "off the rack" places will hem your pants for you and do other minor alterations. He looks more like he showed up in jeans and they grabbed a staffer and made them switch outfits before he went out in public.

The last suit I bought was from Walmart, and it fit me better than his does.

/this will not swing my vote
 
2012-08-15 10:23:41 AM
What can you say about people that still believe you can still trust American corporate whore media ?

I guess one thing you can say is you are wasting your time if you talk to them.

/this will not swing my vote


The last suit I bought I didn't buy. My mother bought it for me at the Robert Hall on route 7 in Danbury when I was about 11 years old back in the 60's.

Suits are very useful in that they tend to make assholes easy to spot from a distance so you can avoid them.
 
2012-08-15 10:33:01 AM
I highly doubt he is 6-8% body fat... Do they have any idea how low body fat that is? Bodybuilders in competition are like 4% (under 5% is when it gets dangerous). Even they walk around at 10% or so.

I mean, it is possible, but I highly doubt it. Maintaining body fat that low is ridiculously hard for the vast majority of genetics.

Of course this is intentional. He's hoping people will look at him and think "Wow he is so absorbed with trying to save the country from fiscal ruin, he didn't even pay attention when he got dressed this morning". Ten bucks says that suit was tailored that way.

There's a famous adage in the creative and innovation fields that the people in suits are mainly there to make money off the talents of the people not in suits.

If he wore a nice fitting suit, they'd biatch that only the 1% could afford a nice fitting suit.

The same can be said for anyone wearing khakis and polos/short sleeved button ups.
