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.

Whoa look at the Paul Ryan photo topping Drudge: twitter.com/passantino/sta…

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?

Maybe Biden will run on stage shouting “I got your P90X beat, Ryan!” and frantically pumping a Shake Weight. ti.me/RhUIcU

10-to-1 Joe Biden zings Ryan 4work-out photos. Ryan shd respond: “Yeah, I work-out 60mins a day–no time for golf.” lightbox.time.com/2012/10/11/pau…

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

Because nothing says “presidential” like posing for a workout photo with your baseball cap turned backwards. lightbox.time.com/2012/10/11/pau…

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:
Time is releasing the photos of Paul Ryan for the same reason they did Palin: They wish to make him look trivial, young and unserious.

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