Checkmate and feel the burn

Use your legs when powerlifting the rook

When it somes to the Sucking Up To Bush Olympics, John Hinderaker holds the gold medal for this gem:

It must be very strange to be President Bush. A man of extraordinary vision and brilliance approaching to genius, he can’t get anyone to notice. He is like a great painter or musician who is ahead of his time, and who unveils one masterpiece after another to a reception that, when not bored, is hostile.

Press Secretary Tony Snow, possibly in an effort to make up for calling George Bush “an embarrassment” (pre-SnowJob) makes a run for the silver:

Here was Mr. Snow on working in the White House: “The most exciting, intellectually aerobic job I’m ever going to have.”

On the nature of the American soul after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11: “There is an ember of greatness burning in every heart.” On the intellectual acumen of his boss: “He reminds me of one of those guys at the gym who plays about 40 chessboards at once.”

Now I haven’t been to the gym in a few years, but when exactly did chess become an aerobic exercise?
