Paul Ryan Flexes Muscle for Workout Photos


TIME magazine spills 'em:

"When TIME named Paul Ryan a runner-up in last year’s Person of the Year issue, many were familiar with his proposed budget, but few knew that the Wisconsin congressman stayed fit with the now-best selling P90X workout plan. (Ryan’s father and grandfather died of heart attacks.) In fact, it was Ryan’s fitness regime (and Herculean strength on all things fiscal) that inspired the workout-themed sitting for the Person of the Year; those portraits, photographed by Gregg Segal, appear in this week’s issue."

One more, AFTER THE JUMP...

  2. That second shot looks like an old Manhunt come-and-get-it-daddy picture. You know the guy who says he is 22 but is really like 50. I just threw up...a lot.

  3. He seriously looks like Gollum in the top one. And every single guy that I have ever met that has done P90X is a total d-bag. Here I was worried he might look good in these pics. He looks awful! What's with the lame backward red hat? He will be the laughingstock of the interwebs in 3, 2, 1...

  4. Aside from his vile politics, facially I don't find him an attractive man. If not for the worked out physique, he'd be even less so overall.

  7. Our vice presidential candidate wears his hat backwards? He looks like he's about ready to pound a few brewskies with his homies.....

  9. disgusting inside and out --- one of those people that working out does not help

    and sorry the photo shoot is as PATHETIC as those done by PALIN in 2008 .... amazingly lame. Anything to try to look "cool" to the kids. And they always fail.

  10. i guess this appeals to gay republicans who, apparently like Paul Ryan, hope to emulate the aesthetics of heterosexual teenagers.

    or something.

    would i hit that? yeah. with a baseball bat.

  11. look its Edward E Neuman just not as bright

  12. If he had the hottest body in Wisconsin, Paul Ryan would still be so smarmy and annoying that this middle-aged balding bear wouldn't touch him with a ten foot pole.

  13. Sorry meant Alfred E Neuman

  19. Can you imagine his o-face?

    Posted by: jakke | Oct 11, 2012 12:54:56 PM

  20. @JAKKE: Ewww ewww ewwwwwww!! OMG. I am slowly becoming obsessed with these. I almost want to believe they are fake. If Time really released these, it's very clear whose side they are on.

    Posted by: AJ | Oct 11, 2012 12:58:08 PM

  21. Sorry...I'd hit it while rolling around on a bed of Chik fil a sandwiches slathered in Polynesian sauce. But I would feel really bad about it afterwards.

    Posted by: Scott C. | Oct 11, 2012 1:01:22 PM

  22. I just don't get his mouth. Is he smiling? Is he not smiling? Is he smiling and not smiling at the same time?

    Posted by: Titolink | Oct 11, 2012 1:05:19 PM

  23. He looks like a skinny dork.

    Posted by: Jeff York | Oct 11, 2012 1:06:17 PM

  24. Jesus. The backward hat? With that goofy, wide smirk is he auditioning to play The Joker in an upcoming Batman flick?

    Is he TRYING to look like an idiot? If so he succeeded admirably.

    Oh the online snark about this is going to be GOOD!

  25. He looks like a ferret on LSD.
