Barack Bedazzles Bild!!

Bild is a German newspaper somewhere between "The New York Post" and "The National Enquirer" -- but with breasts (God bless German journalism!). So they naturally sent (at least) one reporter to the gym at Obama's hotel. She just happened to be there when he was working out, and here are some of her reports:

"Obama (with toned arms and a strong back) puts on his headphones for his iPod to listen to pop music. He hums quietly. Then he jumps on a fitness bike. He pushes three times on the pedals -- but then can't be bothered with it."

"He picks up a pair of 16 kilo weights and starts curling them with his left and right arms, 30 repetitions on each side. Then, amazingly, he picks up the 32 kilo weights! Very slowly he lifts them, first 10 curls with his right, then 10 with his left.

Quickly I ask: "Mr. Obama, could I take a photo?". "Of course!" he answers, before asking my name and coming over to stand next to me. "My name's Judith" I reply. "I'm Barack Obama, nice to meet you!" he says, and puts his arm across my shoulder. I put my arm around his hip -- wow, he didn't even sweat! WHAT A MAN!"

um, I think that you need to take some deep breaths and learn to translate "restraining order" into German.
