Published July 22, 2005 3:58PM (EDT)

President Bush apparently thinks that being a gym bunny or a jogger is an important prerequisite for a Supreme Court position, as War Room noted earlier.

Jonathan Chait in a commentary in today's L.A. Times asks: "Am I the only person who finds this disturbing? I don't mean the fact that Bush would vet his selection for the highest court in the land in part on something utterly trivial. That's expected. What I mean is the fact that Bush has an obsession with exercise that borders on the creepy."
