Thompson Drops for Fifty

Tommy Thompson (R), the oldest guy in the Wisconsin U.S. Senate race, "recently boasted that he does 100 push-ups a day -- 50 in the morning and another 50 later in the day," the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports.

"So when Thompson visited the Journal Sentinel to speak with the editorial board, we couldn't resist asking him for a demonstration. Thompson loosened his tie, took off his suit coat, emptied his pockets and slipped off his shoes. Then he braced his feet against the wall -- admittedly a bit of a crutch -- and ripped off 50 push-ups in under a minute."
