In case you didn't read the blog, what Cillizza is sighing and throwing the back of his hand to his forehead about is the fact the second most popular Paul Ryan Google search, as of yesterday, was 'Paul Ryan shirtless'—which is interesting in itself because isn't the second most popular search for any famous male usually that person's name followed by the word 'gay'?
Anyway, this blog entry got me thinking about other notable politicians (past and present, foreign and domestic) shirtless—not of course (!) in the context of a fantasy but rather with the curious rigor of a lepidopterist pinning butterflies in a shadow box. Here are my specimens, friends—and for them I offer you my apology in advance...
Harry S. Truman.
