Dude, do you work out? LA Times on Bush's Exercise Compulsion.

When I read that Bush asked Supreme Court nominees how much they exercised, I thought it was pretty weird.  Apparently I'm not the only one.  Check out this excellent column from the LA Times which also discusses the possiblity that Bush fired economic advisor Lawrence Lindsey because he didn't work out enough.  What can you say, the guy is just weird. 

I found this on the internet:  "According to Dr. Alayne Yates of the University of Hawaii, a leading researcher of exercise compulsions and their links to eating disorders, the obsessive exerciser typically is a workaholic professional in his or her 20s or 30s who is highly educated, achievement-oriented, and a perfectionist. Despite an outward show of success, he or she often is plagued with feelings of inadequacy, low self-esteem, and of having failed in a life-defining endeavor, such as a broken marriage or an inability to find a job that is fulfilling."
