From the New York Times (Daily Rash Edition):

obama bike

In an editorial on Monday the New York Times gushed over photographs of President Obama riding his bicycle, at one point exclaiming the President was "an example of rugged masculinity gone wild!"

And so the order of the day was set by our self-styled Newspaper of Record, and the gallery responded.

The enthusiasm over the bicycle photographs stretches from media outlets coast to coast. The Boston Globe dubbed the photographs a "toxic elixir that soothes the aching heart" while the San Francisco Chronicle fawned, "If ever there was a time when America needed a macho, in-your-face, physical example of aggressiveness and old fashioned male moxie, that time is now and the man is Barack Obama."

N.Y. Times' Maureen Dowd borrowed from Shakespeare to express her sentiment of the Obama bicycle photos:

"What a piece of work is a man, how noble in reason, how infinite in faculties, in form and moving how express and admirable, in action how like an angel, in apprehension how like a god."

Pop icon Lady Gaga told the Daily Rash that the Obama bike photos caused her to become flushed and lightheaded.

"After I regained my composure I walked crab-like to my piano and wrote a song to my President and Commander in Chief in just under two minutes."

You Make My Loin Ache words and music by Lady Gaga

You make me grunt like a linebacker

You make me squeal like a pig

You make me screech like a vulture

You make me groan like a convict

Ride that bike my swarthy leader!

Ride that bike my swarthy leader!

The hysteria over the photographs has remarkably rejuvenated the President's stagnant approval ratings. Just ten days ago a Rasmussen poll showed President Obama with a 48% approval rating. Two days after the publication of the Obama bicycle photographs a Washington Post/NBC/Newsweek poll showed Obama with a 99% approval rating.

Ga-Ga yet?

Oh yeah.

99% approval?

That means I've finally made it into the . . . 1%.

Hoo - f**kin' - ray.

I mean, like, really.

SNL?

Your turn.

Update:

Notice - I just did - that the president has selected a bike with a unisex frame to ride for this photo opportunity.

My lips are otherwise . . .

Sealed.

If not necessarily in a good way.
