The other day I was in a restaurant with my
family. Without my knowing, my son wondered
over to check out the idiot box.
He returned a minute later to give me the
political update. Rocky O-bomb-ya was
neck-in-neck with Hell-airy Clinton.
Then there was John Mick Cane flying around
the world – looking, as one commentator said,
“Presidential.” Much better than when he starts
Yes, my friends, poli-ticks these days is mostly
about looks. How many big fat politicians run
for office – much less president. None.
Well, Mick Cane ain’t so slim, especially in his jaws –
looks like he’s storing up for a famine – but he’s
a far cry from Beddy Kennedy – who tossed his
drawers in one time – when he was slim – and that
John Treadwards, Dennis Coosinitch – even Ralph
Radar – all these people who’ve tried to win it more
than once – none of them are fat.
Even Mike Huckelbee – didn’t have the stomach to
run for president until he dropped a hundred pounds
Meanwhile, over the weekend, I see George W. bringing
in one of the Manning boys, Eli, to help all the fat people
George W. says that 65% of Americans are overweight – pauses,
then ad-libs, “That’s too many.”
You gotta love this country, it’s leaders and the one-liners they
come up with.
“That’s too many.”
I’m curious about one thing, though – why aren’t any of these
candidates running. Yes, I mean running up and down the
I mean, come on. It’s the American way to get elected.
Jimmy C did it in 1976 to beat Ford. Slick Billy did it in 1992
to beat George H.W.
George W. did it to beat Kerry.
And this year – no one is running.
Then again, maybe somebody is but I missed it because I don’t
watch the boob tube.
Let me tell you something, if any of these politicians showed
some real courage, some real guts and did Combat Conditioning

would be a lot better off and a lot safer.
That’s my theory. You can have your own theory if you want.
But you already knew that.
Well anyway, better go pick up my son at school and make sure
he does some exercise. Tonight it’ll be a lot of pushups, squats,
bridging and rope climbing.
Make sure you do something today to get leaner – just in case
you ever want to run for president.
