PHOTO: Paul Ryan Is Pumped Up For The VP Debate

Vice Presidential candidate, noted marriage equality hater and P90X enthusiast Paul Ryan posed for a particularly embarrassing photo shoot for Time magazine when they named him runner-up as their Person of the Year – it must have been a slow year.

Now with Ryan readying to take on Fightin’ Joe Biden in the Vice Presidential debate tonight, Time reminds us of how embarrassing said photo shoot was.

Between that constipated arm curling and falsely sympathetic hand reach (?), Biden doesn’t stand a chance.

    This is worse than the Sarah Palin in running shoes photo. What’s with republican VP candidates lately being all fitness crazy?

  • decampbell

    He is so creepy. This must be what Anthony Weiner looked like to conservatives. Mercifully Ryan doesn’t have his dick ou.

  • Lester Brathwaite

    @decampbell: Yet.

  • MK Ultra

    Oh lawrdy, those pics are too hilarious.
    Thank you Time magazine.

    1. They want to look young and sexy for the youth voters.

    2. They want to look ambitious to appeal to the Randites, Neo-cons, an other flavors of Social Darwinism. You know, because losing your job at Best Buy just means you’re not dong enough pull-ups.

    3. They want to look bad ass for all the cranky, middle aged, drive-time conservatives who use right wing politics to outlet their Propecia rage.

    If he was trying to look like a complete asshole with that backward baseball cap and the tilted-head “I’m so dope” pose in the 2nd pic, he succeeded.

    And if he’s going to keep showing off his “awesome bod” he needs to do something about those chicken-legs! Are there no mirrors in the Congressional Gym? He should ask Congressman Schock for some help. I’m sure he’d offer a hand at the very least, and probably many other things besides.

    seriously, People that think that THIS guy is HOT?!?!?! What are they smoking and who is the drug dealer that supplies them, and why isn’t he or she arrested yet


    This guy is, so FUCKED UP! no wonder Republican like him! they fucked up to!.

  • the other Greg

    @GreenmanTN: Maybe he lied about his workout music. Remember we were told he listens to Rage Against The Machine (while ignoring the lyrics). But it looks more like he listens to the Beastie Boys (while ignoring the lyrics). Yo.

    Ryan won the debate tonight. I was already voting for he and Romney, but this just makes me all the psyched to do it.

  • 2eo

    @Avenger: I know you shouldn’t wish accidents happen to people, but if you accidentally swallow an entire cement mixer, I shall laugh.

  • Dumdum

    @2eo:About Avenger? It’s just a troll, ignore it and hopefully IT will go away. Ryan has to be Goofys cousin a total cartoon. I wouldn’t F**k him with Romneys d**k. I think that I will vote for Rosanne Barr. If we actually lived in a democracy where Americans had the popular vote to elect our president that would be a different matter. I don’t live in a swing state and I am not one of 538 electors who officially elect the president and vice president, so what’s the point. Americas president is a weak and flaccid figurehead. The real power belongs to congress and the billonaires who back them.

  • gppm1103

    He still looks like Eddie Munster… the gym.

  • Eric Auerbach

    This guy is such a dork.

  • Dumdum

    @gppm1103: I think Eddy was better looking.

  • Aidan8

    Imagine… this guy could be one pair of magic-underwear from the Presidency. Scary.

  • zaneymcbanes

    Full disclosure… I had a sex dream with Paul Ryan in it last night.

  • Eric Auerbach

    @Gigi Gee: Weird that you think one man performing oral sex on another man is such an insult. Self-hatred much?

  • Niall

    His annoying smug face looks very punchable.

  • Bellerophon69

    Love the “chicken legs”! Looks like he needs to do more leg work, and a ideology makeover might help too.

  • miagoodguy

    It is sad how catty gay men can be. People need to grow up.

  • Eric Auerbach

    @miagoodguy: So *your* catty comment is mature, but other people’s catty comments are sad?

  • mike1n11

    honestly, im gay and im constantly annoyed with the gay community, if he was a democrat yall would be like “OMFG SO HOT GET ON MY DICK RIGHT NOW YUMMY” but because he doesnt believe in your marriage you think hes ugly & dumb.
    fuckin hypocrites.

  • Eric Auerbach

    @mike1n11: Actually, that just means there’s more to a guy’s hotness than just a gym body. Nice try at trolling, though.

  • Mjl-428

    @mike1n11: um, how about ” thank you for the support” and he still wouldn’t look good to me. he’s not my type in any way shape or form, so you can count me off of that list of people you were calling hypocrites

  • jwrappaport

    @mike1n11: False. I have said words to that effect about Aaron Schock, who is openly anti-gay. Paul Ryan is scrawny and looks like an old Basset Hound.

  • Dumdum

    @mike1n11: He has pretty eyes, but I still wouldn’t blow him ,unless he was the last man on earth and I was REALLY horny. Then I would close my eyes and pretend that he was Ben Cohen or Dan Savage.
