    reminds of putin running around showing his bare chest

    I wouldn’t be suprised if it was the campaign that gave out the pic

    hey girls isn’t he cute? forget about his cosponsoring fetal personhood bill that would make the pill, IUDs, etc all murder and put you in jail

    forget he signed did not support the fair pay act (equal pay for equal work for females)

    just look at his putin propaganda esque manly bare chest

  2. The Milkman says

    I’m always impressed when a man of his age or older manages to keep his body in good shape. That said, I wouldn’t touch it with a ten foot pole.

    “Pole.” Heh.

  3. AJ says

    I’m not above sexualizing a straight dude who hates me. And it’s not self-loathing, it’s eye candy. And this dude does NOT do it for me. Not attractive. ANd I hope straight women out there don’t fall for this either. He is a misogynistic d-bag!

  4. djork says

    Why post this photo to this site? Who and what does it serve? It trivializes the terrifying possibility that this man could get elected vice f*cking president!

  5. Nat says

    “Nice chicken legs. Most guys that workout totally neglect their legs.”

    That was my first impression. Neglecting the lower body is just silly: even if it doesn’t attract attention like the glamour muscles, it produces a noticeable difference in daily activities, as well as sex.

  6. Ken says

    From what I’ve heard, the guy seems to be totally obsessed his looks and body and guys like that always want to show off. I’m predicting within a few weeks someone will uncover some Wiener style photos he took of himself and his career will be finished.

  7. AJ says

    Oh cripes. Calm down! Every other site is gonna be leaping on this as a “news” story. And I honestly STILL think that the Repugs have NO chance. Mittens is a boring, smarmy, dog-torturing, bullying, tax-evading CEO and Ryno is an insider-trading, misogynistic, P90X d-bag. Amurrica would have to have their head lodged way further up their a55 than I think is even possible to elect these fktards.

  8. says

    Love the title DOES SHIRTLESS PAUL RYAN MAKE YOU WANT A TIGHT BUDGET? But, I’m afraid that that will draw votes over his looks.

    We can’t get complacent over negative thoughts of Obama and gay rights we still want…. Congress prevents things from getting done. I wish people would blame congress more instead of the president…. he only has so much power. And congress has made him cave to Republican demands just to get as much as he has gotten done. We need to turn Congress BLUE …. then we will make more progress.

  9. jamal49 says

    Uh, Paul? Uh, if you use P90X “religiously” every morning like I read somewhere around here, I, uh, gotta say that you’re not a very good advertisement for it. Your body is sort of, well, like, um, not interesting. In fact, it’s kind of, uh, not very attractive at all. Maybe you should get a refund?

  10. Paul R says

    I detest the man, but he does have a handsome face. Total WASP, of course. I don’t know why some would think it surprising that a man in his mid-30s (when this was taken) would be in shape. He’s vain as hell and works out every day. Obesity isn’t automatic, and I’m hardly a gym rat. Get a dog and walk it a lot, then don’t eat crappy food and you’ll stay in fine shape.

  11. Caliban says

    Honestly I think he’s an attractive man, more interesting because he’s not traditionally handsome.

    It’s just unfortunate he’s a loathsome POS.

    Between Ryan’s Ayn Rand fetish, contempt for those without his advantages, and Romney’s history (gay-bashing during high school, animal abuse [and no matter what you think of his motivations that dog WAS abused], his convictions being deterimed entirely on what will get him elected (there’s no *there* there), they’re two peas in a pod.

    Congratulations, GOP. You’ve come up with a straight sociopathic ticket.

  12. Caliban says

    As for Ryan’s wife, she was a lobbyist for the tobacco industry, which pretty much says that while she may not be Satan, she’ll do until he shows up.

  13. Mike says

    Out of the pool and the hair still looks perfect, slicked and in place. It looks as if he just snapped it back on. What infomercial did he buy the coiffe from?

  14. Markus says

    OH HOW SOON we forget the press corps yelling “Down in front!” because 2008 Obama boarded the press bus in tight mom-jeans and stood and put his foot on the seat.

  15. ratbastard says

    Goy Weiner? Isn’t that a racist thing to say? Mr. Ehrenstein, what do you say? I’m assuming you were at least born one of the few, the proud, God’s chosen people.

    Ratbastard is antisemitic in 5,4,3,2,….

  16. andrew says

    Paul Ryan is a handsome man in excellent physical shape and he has a beautiful family. Just because I wouldn’t vote for him because of his extreme right wing conservative views doesn’t mean that I have to deny his positive physical attributes ,like many of the posters on this site do.

  17. andrew says

    I must admit that as a lifelong liberal democrat, I often get depressed reading all the liberal intollerance and negativity posted on this site. I use to read and post comments on Fox site but stopped because I was overwhelmed by the tremendous amount of hate and negativity on that site. This site is not as bad as Fox but it is damn far from good.

  18. FunMe says

    Thank goodness the majority of people here will not fall for the ugliness of this guy, “good” body or not.

    I personally think Ryan is just another FASCIST. As I read some where, “Hitler with a smile” … and he could care less about our country. He is running for the 1% and the rest of us can just jump in the lake.

    He needs to bee booted out of anywhere near DC. He is a traitor to our American democracy.

  20. andrew says

    Paul Ryan is not a “fascist” or “Hitler with a smile” or “a traitor to our American democracy”, as Funme rants, any more than President Obama is a socialist or Muslim etc. They are two good men with very different views on what is good for America. I almost always agree with Mr Obama and will vote for him again in november. All the name calling serves no useful purpose.

  22. andrew says

    @Shannon:: “The guy is actually disgusting” How so? “He hates you guys”. Don’t assume that because someone disagrees with us on social and political issues that he “hates” us. Cool down the rhetoric.

  23. ARMY BOI says

    OK, so he’s buff in a self-absorbed, straight-boy sort of way. He’s still not “pec-tacular” enough to be one of us, and [with his crappy attitude] never will be.

  24. woodroad34 says

    Oh, please. This is a desperate attempt to “rouge up” the sexless GOP. All this is is a pig without his shirt on. Once you’re laying on top of him, he pulls out a knife and stabs you in the back.

  25. MikeInSanJose says

    “Not Fat” doesn’t necessarily equate to hot. That being said, god must’ve given him those jug-ears for a reason. Surely there’s SOME talent hidden deep inside that otherwise tiny little man…

  26. BrokebackBob says

    How does it make me feel?
    It makes me feel like making sure that his sorry ass gets beaten to a pulp in the November election together with his lover, Mitt Romney. That will take care of any further political career. It is a matter of record that NO failed vice presidential candidate has ever achieved the presidency later. What a sorry loser, with crazy-ass eyes no less. Ugh.

  27. John says

    He doesn’t look all that hot to me and those potato stix legs? Really? I bet he can fold those tiny things behind his ears with no problem. OK boys, I’m ready for my pounding.

  28. Steerpike says

    Meh. So he’s not fat. Is that the bar for attractiveness now? If he looked like his ideas, children would flee screaming and if he looked like his heart, you’d need a microscope to find him.

  29. Steerpike says

    There’s a particular kind of ugliness that you get when you work out too much and don’t eat properly: you get ‘ripped’ but in a wizened and leathery way, like you are a heavy smoker. He’s a jerk and his body looks like jerky.
