Zach Wamp is Sweating With the Oldies 

Congressional press releases are typically self-serving and, well, boring. But sometimes you get one that makes you go hmmm. This latest effort from 3rd District Rep. Zach Wamp being a case in point. We're still trying to figure out how Wamp and Richard Simmons hooked up. But perhaps that's better left unexplored.

The occasion for this splendid photo op? A bill sponsored by Wamp and fellow congressman Ron Kind designed to introduce physical education classes into the No Child Left Behind program.

Simmons said: "There remains only a ghost of physical education walking the halls of many schools in the United States today. Fitness has become a ghostly presence! This must change, and sooner rather than later."

A ghostly presence? Um, okay. But this whole thing has us spooked.
