Today In Misguided Photo Shoots: Paul Ryan Working Out

Paul Ryan could not look any more uncomfortable, or any more like an 80s fitness model, than he does here.

Poor, poor Paul Ryan. On the day of his Vice Presidential candidate debate with current VP Joe Biden, it's come out that he has no idea how to look natural in a photo shoot.

The photos, outtakes from a spread taken by Time magazine while Ryan was in the running for Time's 2011 Person of the Year award, were published today as part of the magazine's profile of the Vice Presidential nominee, which can be found at their website.

I'd include text from either of the stories that have been posted, but neither is particularly relevant to Ryan and these photos — the profile centers around Ryan's vague descriptions of his proposed budget changes while on the campaign trail, while the copy accompanying the photos spends more time talking to P90X creator Tony Horton, with the excuse that Ryan is a devotee to the hardcore training regimen.

So with that, I'll leave you with that photo above, of Paul Ryan looking a bit like Kermit the Frog curling a 40 pound dumbbell. Spectacular.
