Open Thread

I've been doing way too much exercise, far too much for this aging 29 year old body to take, and I tweaked my back pretty bad. I'm going to a chiropractor today, and later getting a massage, so I'm going to be in and out.

Squats status:

[ ] Done

[ ] Not Done

[X] Oh shit what was that

I got through my warm-up of air squats okay, then I tried a light load (still doing the warm-up, just putting a small load on), and suddenly the entire left side of my body -- back, glutes, hamstrings -- began spasming at once.

Then I could hardly walk for the rest of the day (yesterday).

I guess I should say that anyone who's exercising for the first time in a long time should definitely build in recovery days into the schedule and observe them even more rigorously than training days, and also, stretch/mobilize every day. Even 29 year old bodies like mine need some tune up work.

Meanwhile, at Red State, Joe Cunningham argues that the media is hypocritical for going crazy over Steve Bannon's old, dropped domestic battery charges.

Let me ask you guys this: Have you ever heard of campaign staffers being vetted this way? The candidate himself, sure. But his staffers?

How many political hands working today could survive a full media vetting without DUI's, substance abuse, assault allegations, infidelities, etc. coming to light? How many media people could stand up to the vetting?

I ask because I just don't remember anyone going after someone's political aides before. I know the right is trying to get some scrutiny on Huma Abedin, and the media is not very interested.
