Remember when Sarkozy won the French Presidency and the GOP threw a big party about how "conservatism" was taking over the world? They loved it so much, the Congressional cafeteria renamed the freedom fries back to french fries (of which they are neither, but that's besides the point). Now, Sarkozy's "conservatism" was to the left of President Obama. You might remember his comment after we passed the ACA, about "Welcome to the 20th century." Anyway, what do you think the GOP will make of Sarkozy losing to an actual socialist (someone left of Bernie Sanders)? Yeah, they're well practiced in excluding from the bubble anything that goes against them, so I expect Sarkozy to fall into the same mental Black Hole of Calcutta of their minds.

On the benefits of just getting up and moving. Since I am exercising to lose weight, it's not all that good for me. Before that, though, even though I have a bmi over 30, I could typically out pace my teen-age nieces and nephews. I would often go for walks. It's a little more difficult now, and one of the reasons that I will eventually move close in to more established park systems. Also, when it's not raining or snowing, I take at least a 10 minute walk before lunch. Basically to get me out of the office and to get my heart rate back up to a level that I'm burning calories. See, the majority of calories you consume (50-65%) are used in you basal metabolic rate. Actual aerobic exercise (the work until you're sweating kind) doesn't actually use much more calories than the thermic effect of digestion (ie, the energy you use to digest what you eat). Sucks, huhn? But now that classes are almost over I do intend to get back to using the Wii more often. (Grokked from Jay Lake)
