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. For someone who's only 42, he certainly has the face of a 70 yo, especially when he does that weird smirk thing.

  3. Embarrassing. He looks like someone who played the side kick on a sitcom 20 years ago and is trying to make a comeback after succumbing to heroin for 10 years.

  4. He looks borderline anorexic to me. Yuck.

  6. One pic looks like Gomer Pyle, the other like a cheap rent boy. YaY!

  7. I want to plump his face with fillers, give him a Hillary makeover. Is that wrong?

  8. He looks like Goober from the old Andy Griffith Show.

  9. Malevolent and ugly.....at the same time !!

  10. Really, he looks like Horshack from Welcome back, Kotter. The photo shoot and mugging appear to be his headshots for an upcoming comedy about a man who becomes a nerdy teenager or did Tom Hanks do that already?

  11. His politics are as disgusting and thin as his legs.

  12. You know what is REALLY hilarious about all these disparaging comments? Most of the people making them would "do" Paul Ryan in a heartbeat if they ever got half a chance. And deep-down, they know it.

    Yes, hilarious.

  13. @RICK: we all know u would never do a non-white man and u revere all whites.

    your post is a pitch-perfect example of projection.

  14. Hahaha! At least Romney DIDN'T know a camera was recording him.

  15. I really hope someone will tell Ryan what it means when you wear your baseball cap backwards. (You know so it won't get in the way of what you're doing down there.)

  16. Where's the pic of him riding a skate board through a mud puddle?

    Posted by: i could go on, but I won't | Oct 11, 2012 5:52:02 PM

  17. Sorry but not very attractive.

    Posted by: jaragon | Oct 11, 2012 6:39:06 PM

  18. It appears that Gregg Segal was looking for a laugh; mission accomplished!

    And I want Paul Ryan's funhouse mirror. It obviously distorts observer's perceptions of themselves. (Goober, spot on!)

  19. "He looks like a ferret on LSD."

    LMAO! Seriously, the democrats have GOT to use these in some ads.

  20. Aww, Bart Simpson is running for VP. How precious!

    Posted by: Basil | Oct 11, 2012 8:09:47 PM

  21. He's a goober

    Posted by: ptx | Oct 11, 2012 11:04:12 PM

  22. He is so ugly

  23. Those chicken legs are pathetic, but nowhere near as bad as what's above them.

    I'd wish that Paul Ryan becomes the next Sarah Palin, but the last thing I want is to ever hear of this bozo again after his failed run for the vice-presidency.

  24. These two shots look like some bad soft-core gay porn layout from the early 1980's. Remember that in those days there couldn't be any "arousals". (I think that's the word that had to be used.) I had a nightmare about that last night.

  25. Oh you are SO COOL, Paulie. (swoon)
