Caption This Photo: Drop And Give Me Twenty, Mike Coffman!

An hilarious animated .GIF clip forwarded to us of Rep. Mike Coffman at Denver International Airport last Thursday:

According to the source of this clip, Rep. Coffman was standing nonchalantly at his gate when the impulse grabbed him to drop and start doing…folks, would you actually call those pushups? There appears to be some debate on this point. It's been suggested to us that Coffman does pushups the way he does immigration reform–kind of a half-assed effort, short of what you'd call "comprehensive."

What does this look like to you? Try to keep your answers rated PG-13, kids read this blog after all.

    "If I do this long enough, they'll stop asking me about my immigration votes."

    I'm putting this in the same column as the "shirtless sheriff".  It is repellent.  I hope his wife doesn't see this.

    Maybe it's not exercise. Could be Rove or a Koch brother was standing just off-screen and Mike was simply demonstrating the required fealty.

    In 2013, he was doing pushups for donations – probably this is the same. Though why do them at an airport, next to the screening station, I can't fathom.

    style over substance

    Apparently, Coffman is a compulsive random exerciser. Sure gives you confidence in his ability to lead CD6, right?

    That, and we know that he can repeat himself

    • BlueCat says:

      He’s up at 4 a.m. every day, and he still does 500 pushups every single day — he’s got the scars on his palms to prove it and the holes in his suit jackets,” Sandberg marvels. “He does it before votes, between fundraising calls, between contact calls — he’ll do a hundred calls to undecided voters and a hundred pushups, a hundred calls to undecided voters and a hundred pushups.”

      Well now we know what those pushups look like.

      As to your second link,  it's like a flashback to the stepford candidate rinse and repeat reps on the subject of his real views on birtherism.
