You know what I like about that ad? I think it shows he's done enough cardio to survive the impending zombie apocalypse. Endorsed.
Heck of a break that Sean Astin was available.
Aaron Schock could probably beat him in feats of strength. And if we're suspending the politics rule, can I just point out the absurdity that Rep. Chris Lee had to resign after sending a photo of him flexing without a shirt on to a prostitute, while Congressman Schock can pose on the cover of men's health, flexing without a shirt, and thus be seen by many more prostitutes?
That special election is full of bizareness, because it's the first California "Jungle Primary" and in a district where there are some long-term hard feelings toward the former incumbent.
Astin's serving as Adler's campaign manager.
On your second point, note the synergy of this Candorville cartoon that appeared this week (don't the comics have a three-week lead time?).http://candorville.com/2011/05/09/the-man-who-changed-history/
One complaint: even if it was done purely so you could see his face more clearly, Adler looks like he doesn't know how to wear a football helmet.
Someone tweeted this at Deadspin's Drew Magary yesterday and I thought it was hilarious:<span>Obi-Wan letting Vader kill him was a troll move and not a suicide. "Oh you killed me? BOOM, I'm a Force Ghost! LOL, u mad?"</span>
