Bush-basher Jonathan Chait
A week ago, when President Bush met with Judge J. Harvie Wilkinson III to interview him for a potential Supreme Court nomination, the conversation turned to exercise. When asked by the president of the United States how often he exercised, Wilkinson impressively responded that he runs 3 1/2 miles a day. Bush urged him to adopt more cross-training. “He warned me of impending doom,” Wilkinson told the New York Times.
Am I the only person who finds this disturbing?
Yes, Jonathan, you are. Now, go get help.

Can you even think of a picture of John Kerry during his four (?) year run for the Presidency that didn’t include a windsurfer, a snowboard, skis, a bicycle, a football, a shotgun, a motorcycle…and lots of custom attire to fit the sport? (OK, he did do the debates…) I wondered if there was a single rich-man’s sport Kerry did not take up. I also thought that if he had time to be so capable in so many different sports, did he ever have time to go do his Senate gig?
Jonathan Chait needs serious meds. Or, maybe some exercise, you know, to clear his mind!
