Exercising Their Rights

cartoon from Charles Atlas Ad 1947

While many Americans are outraged that members of Congress continue to pump iron in their members-only gym while the government is shutdown, it is in fact “essential “ for it to stay open so that the wimpy 98 lb. weaklings in Congress can build up their atrophied muscles to fight the bullies of the Tea Party .

Taking a page from Body Builder Charles Atlas, who knew a thing or two of turning a chump into a champ, Congress can learn a thing or two about becoming real he-men simply by working out.

Imagine the wonderful thrill, Democrats and moderates of the Republican party, never again cringe or shy away from a bully.

Imagine the wonderful thrill of confidence to know that nobody can push you around anymore. Think of the respect others will have for you, when they find out what a rough and ready scrapping, deadly efficient he-man you can be!

And it only takes 15 minutes a day!

Chump into a Champ

Cartoon- Charles Atlas Ad 1947

Cartoon- Charles Atlas Ad 1947

How many Democratic Congressman have felt like Joe in the 1947 ad, absolutely fed up with having bigger huskier fellows “push you around? If you have, then, only 15 minutes a day and Charles Atlas, who himself went from a scrawny 97 lb weakling to winner of the title “Worlds Most Perfectly Developed Man” promised  you can have a body you’ll be proud of,  pack ed with red-blooded vitality.

You’ll have more pep and zip in your step you’ll get sledge-hammer fists, a battering ram punch and back muscles so big they’ll almost split your coat seams.

Working out will strengthen that weak spine you’ve been exhibiting of late,  making you a finer specimen of real manhood than you ever dreamed you could.

Two Words Turned Mac into a He Man

Or how about moderate Republicans, are you like Mac in the ad, fed up with being “pushed around”- Are you sick and tired of that people pity instead of admire you —then 15 minutes a day will make you a new man red blooded specimen of real He-Manhood!

By working out, Congressmen or women  might learn a thing or two how to expertly defend themselves from they tyranny of the far .right. Learn how to KO the enemy, master him with a punishing wrestling hold, until he cries compromise!
