Dave!And so here I am in Atlanta. Again. Just a week ago I was passing through the airport, but this time I'm going to stick around... for one whole day!

It's the start of a little four-day "mini vacation," which means I have nobody but myself to blame that I'm stuck traveling all weekend. And, as happy as I am to be flying to two really cool events, a small part of me is just tired of traveling. Tired and wanting to stay home.

In other news, Representative Paul Ryan did a photo shoot for Time Magazine which included workout photos. And who could blame him? He's in fantastic shape. If I was in that good of shape, I'd have gone to tonight's debate shirtless. Hell, I'd go everywhere shirtless. So it's kind of lame to see all the nasty comments being sent Ryan's direction when he's probably just being himself. Give the guy a break. He obviously works out, so who cares?

Which is not to say that the whole backwards cap thing isn't douchey. It's 100% douchey. All he needs is a soul patch and some sunglasses... and he's Poochie...

Poochie and Paul Ryan
My contribution to the Photoshop mashups exploding on the internet. You are welcome!

And now I can't look at Paul Ryan without thinking back to a joke that Demetri Martin drew up...

Baseball Cap Forward = Sports Fan. Baseball Cap Backwards = Date Rape Fan

Oh well. That wouldn't be the worst thing we've had take office in American politics.

And now... sweet surrender to some sleep at last...

    You’re in Atlanta? Going to Anissa’s conference thingy? I’m on a plane from Philadelphia now, headed that way, but can’t go to Callaway Gardens because of Reserves.

    What IS that look on his face? That man gives me the creeps.

  3. i don’t get the backwards baseball hat hate. there are just sometimes when a person doesn’t feel like worrying about what their hair looks like and wants to wear a hat. maybe they hate having the brim impede their view. i don’t know. i just don’t mind baseball hats the “wrong” way. who the fuck is anyone to say what is right and wrong? come to think of it, i actually kinda like the look of a baseball hat on backwards. and i am not a fan of the date rape. so there. pfffffffft.

  4. I saw those photos and all I could think was he was doing that photo shoot with LMFAO’s “I’m Sexy & I Know It” playing in the background!!
