Here's the beef
Elizabeth Williamson and Patrick O’Connor, WSJ, Mar 16, 2011, says some younger members of Congress are into P90X—an infomercial darling of a DVD exercise routine.
They gather around a TV in the gym to do this.
They are the younger Republicans—intent on pumping up job growth and slashing budgets—and apparently flab, too.
They revere Tony Horton, the guru of this movement.
Apparently this is a “frenzied mix” of jumping, pushups, pullups, weight training and abdominal moves.
Horton is known for saying things like “get your bucket,” meaning the moves are vomit-inducing.
Well, it sounds charming. I guess it’s a step in the right direction…er, leap… I wonder how the knees fare over time…That seems to be getting the people in my set.
