This just in: Obama's abs are rockin'

The San Jose Mercury News reported today on the decidedly non-pressing story of Obama's abs, though I think it's hard to miss the subtext: a failing auto industry and a corrupt Illinois governor aren't as good for headline and caption writers as a buff president-elect:
The blogosphere joyously erupted when the topless photos began circulating with cries of "Commander in Beef," and the paparazzi Web site TMZ.com posted the shot with a caption that said, "President-elect Barack Obama is still humble enough to do laundry — ON HIS ABS!"

When I looked earlier, the photo service's site had crashed.
