Hypocrisy

I dislike hypocrisy and double standards. Here are two articles, one from LA Times and one from a UK paper (so, obviously, different papers, different authors and all that, but still…) Bush’s exercise habits are described by words such as “creepy,” “disturbing,” “obsession.” Obama, on the other hand, puts us all to shame and should motivate us all to exercise more. These articles of indicative of a general tone. For the past couple years, I have seen a number of articles that spoke darkly of Bush’s exercise regimen, even accusing him of hiding from his job by going to the gym. I am glad Obama motivates us all to be healthy. I just hate the double standard that makes Bush a creep and Obama the redefinition of the male physique.
