Rep. Aaron Schock, R-Ill., gives a nice, soft, positive interview to Men's Health.
Schock's lead-by-example ethos is a nonpartisan position. "I think Michelle Obama is on the right track with her Let's Move campaign to bring down childhood obesity," he says. "She and I come from the same state, Illinois, which is number four in the nation for obese children. One out of five Illinois children are considered obese. Not overweight, obese. And two-thirds of Americans are either overweight or obese. When people hear that, they're shocked, and rightfully so."
The DCCC responds by mocking up the Men's Health cover with new text about Schock wanting to end Medicare.
Unrelated, although on a point like this, it might not matter: This is obviously filed under "things no female politician could ever get away with." On the cover, he's got his shirt and tie undone as if he's been rudely interrupted halfway through the remix of "Sexual Healing."
