Politicswas flowing from mouths faster than the sweat from brows at New YorkCity’s Crunch Gym on Lafayette this past Wednesday as a group ofamateur pundits gathered within the downtown house of body worshipengaging in more chit and chat than arms on curls.
Backgroundbeats from Madonna and Justin Timberlake’s “4 Minutes to save theworld” kept heads bobbin while the pundits voiced frustration overcontinued calls by Democrats and media bullhorns to kick “their girl”off the playing field in the race for the White House this season.
As he sat and strained with a tortured look on his face pushing down a tricep machine, one of them began his diatribe.
“I just don’t get it, she’s like that girl in school with the real bigglasses who knows everything, you just can’t trip her up, no matter howhard you try… of course I want her as my President,” he said of Hillary.
But his friend shot back with a sarcastic tone, “that’s not want theywant at CNN” as he glanced over at the TV screens airing the nightlypunditry from the Cable giant.
“They (the media) are blowing somuch smoke up the Obama campaign’s bottom it’s pretty obvious they sowant him to win” he said, standing, hands on hips, scoping the happyhour crowd that frequents the East Village institution on this busierthan usual night.
Yet another chimed in “I want someone who isgoing to kick some butt” and “she’s really the only one that I thinkwill do that, forget this coming together with Republicans crap.”
Obviously, there was some anger in this gym pundit’s tone that night,and it wasn’t because his set had been interrupted. Politics seems tobe the one excuse an instigator of conversation can use these days wheninterrupting Downtown Manhattan gym routines.
