Thank you, patriot! Er … we mean, how dare Time magazine objectify VP nominee Paul Ryan by publishing a set of gratuitous workout photos?

Hold on. The conservative ladies of Twitter need a moment.

Look out Joe Biden. Paul Ryan is pumped. Let’s just hope there aren’t similar photos of Joe floating around.

The set of five photos published by Time were taken last year when Ryan was under consideration for the magazine’s “Person of the Year.”

Will “Honest Joe” mention Ryan’s guns at the VP debate tonight?

Naturally, the haters are looking for something to whine about.

Cap? What cap? He was wearing something on his head?

“Yikes”? We think somebody’s a little jealous!


A little somethin’ extra for the ladies:

And an outtake from the photo shoot:


Yes, there’s likely a reason these photos were released on the same day as the one and only vice presidential debate:

Fortunately when he goes up against Biden, viewers will see that the GOP ticket offers a whole lot more than self-proclaimed “eye candy.”


Hey, girl: Breathless reports on pressing issue of shirtless Ryan’s abs … and Biden’s? Shudder

    Can we just skip to when Obama’s halfway through his 2nd term and Paul Ryan’s on Dancing With the Stars?

      I did not know trolls woke up so early.

      • Jack Deth

        Hi, Common Sense:

        George showed up yesterday under the name Leo G. Before his comments were slowly, eventually deleted.

        As far as we can determine, George is college indoctrinated. Lives at home in his mom’s basement and borrows her laptop to post between arguments about rent and his getting a job.

        • Di Sunderland

          He also might be paid by Media Matters to troll Conservative websites like a plethora of known trolls here.

          • Grandma HeadInjury

            So you are implying he actually has a job? I’m not buying it. But yeah, he’s definitely a troll sent by his betters. Probably too unfamiliar with the idea of a paycheck to actually ask for one…

          • Di Sunderland

            In this instance, maybe, afterall what’s easier than trolling, huh? His party always looks for easy ways to make money. And you’re right!

          • TomJB

            @knuckledragginrightwingnutjob:disqus Well, he might be paid to troll here, but won’t be for long. He is quite inept at it.

          • PennyRobinsonFanClub

            Unfortunately, he’s managed to hijack a number of threads just through sheer volume. See what he did to the Ann Romney/Good Morning America thread yesterday? Just COUNTLESS posts, each one raising a half dozen different Soros – approved pieces of bait. It’s easy to get into that game — you answer one point, and he responds with another half dozen. Like the old myth about the Hydra, where as soon as you cut off one head, even more grow up to replace it. O well, like my daddy used to say, A fool can ask more questions than a wise man can answer.

          • Grandma HeadInjury

            Guilty. I played along. *hangs head in shame*

            In my defense, I was going to hand his ass back to him, but he ran away… :-)

          • PennyRobinsonFanClub

            True enough. He churns out enough spew to be another nickel-a-worder, although I have to admit he’s marginally more entertaining. In a “Barney & Friends” “OMG I can’t believe how sickeningly lame this is” kind of way.

      • WingedBishop

        He was woken by everyone passing his tent on their way to work.

      • Kristi Reagan

        Trolls *never* wake up.


        Apprarently, stalkers do..Top of the day

    • HoneyBucket

      Joe Biden’s two most valuable tools for this debate? A teleprompter and adult diapers. Unfortunately for Joe, he’s only allowed one of those.

      • brewerandpatriot

        Biden scribbled his debate notes on said diaper so he can cheat every time he puts his head up his ass.

    • PennyRobinsonFanClub

      Say, are you one of those folks Dear Leader is calling the “Tinfoil Brigade”?

      “The Obama campaign referred to several major liberal bloggers (including ones at Daily Kos, FireDogLake, Democratic Underground, and the Daily Beast’s Andrew Sullivan) as the “tinfoil hat crowd” in a statement to Fox News Wednesday. The campaign was responding to the cable channel’s request for a comment on an Internet conspiracy theory many of them had promoted….suggesting that Mitt Romney had cheated during the debate.”

      Well, are ya, punk? Did Mitt “cheat” in the debate, or are you a tinfoiler?

  • Di Sunderland

    I hope my husband doesn’t see this..but damn he looks delicious.

    • TexasMom2012

      Yep my hubby has that black hair, blue eyed thing going on as well, although getting gray now… Always loved that combo especially when it contains a sharp intellect!

    • disqus_eric

      I hope my wife doesn’t see this, but yes, he does.


    I’m still amazed that Romney made Paul Ryan
    give up his budget but let him keep that widow’s peak

  • Josephine (D)

    Good thing I’m single…if I had a boyfriend he wouldn’t be happy if he knew I saw these pics. ;P

  • weRbroke

    Oh, thanks TIME, I appreciate seeing some REAL eyecandy.

    • ZoriahShepard

      Yes! Obama, take note: That’s what eye candy looks like.

      • AlmaAlma

        Obama has lost his flavor

  • GoSellCrazySomeplaceElse

    Joe Biden, at the debate, challenges Paul Ryan to arm wrestle…and suddenly runs away squeeing.

  • TomJB

    Holy crap! It really *is* going to be Tyson – McNeeley 2! LOL

  • $31654759

    I predict a Knock out in the first round!! Knock em out Ryan!!

  • Mr. Shy

    Oh man, last week’s debate was a riot, and it’s only getting better!! :)

    HILARIOUS VIDEO… Obama: “My Dog Ate It”… share it / repost it…

    – Romney, Ryan, Shy 2013

  • Kim Stanley Smith

    And 0 thinks he’s “eye candy”? ROFLMBO ……… Sure, maybe if I was a gay male!! LOL

  • Diane Stephan

    I’d take this any day over Joe “I wear George Washington’s wooden teeth” Biden.

    • Justine


  • PennyRobinsonFanClub

    Let’s see Mrs. O give HIM a lecture about physical fitness!

  • voodoodoughnut

    “Kinda funny. What do u think?” Don Lemon has a crush. He’s just afraid to come right out and say it. (Trust me. I was a nine year-old girl once.)

  • MissQuinn82

    I’m fighting with myself. I know why these pics got leaked. To make Paul Ryan look like a Bro, a Fratboy Douche – to make women remember that jerk in college that they hooked up with that one time and then treated ’em like crap in public.
    BUT- – we still think about him. We laugh to ourselves if he’s a fat, lonely jerk who runs his dads furniture store. But if he’s still fine as hell and our facebook friend? Um, yeah. Some of us still play what if time has matured him…Time, this may backfire on you, especially if Rep. Ryan brings the heat tonight.


    • ZoriahShepard

      I think it’s going to backfire. Put those pics against any of Joe Biden and their mean intentions just fall flat. They’ll be reminded just how old and frumpy Biden is.

  • PrincessofSnark

    I’d vote for him just based on those pictures. Imagine, smart and good looking. What a change for a Vice President as Biden is neither.


    If you stare at Paul Ryan’s workout photos in TIME magazine for 5 minutes straight, you start to hear Loverboy’s “Working For The Weekend.”
    Locks up douchebag vote

    • voodoodoughnut

      So…what you’re saying is it resonated with you?

  • Sam

    Since most of good looking actors out there are liberal goons, I’m glad we’ve got Paul Ryan. He’s certainly become a sex symbol among conservative women.

  • Obama Phone

    I wonder how many chains he can bench.

  • nc

    A wonky hottie…
