God bless The Hill for giving Washingtonians a chance to judge based solely on appearance, every once in a while. It’s a luxury we can seldom afford. In case you’re wondering what I’m talking about, The Hill has released its annual “50 Most Beautiful” list. So, you know what to do. Breeze through and wonder how Senator X beat out Senator Y, or how staffer X got number 2 when she is clearly less pretty than number 17. Scott Brown did, of course, make the list, but notably absent was Rep. Aaron Schock. All in all, the Democrats destroyed in terms of looks, with 29 representatives on the list, to the Republicans’ 17 and the Independents’ 4. I guess liberals really are hotter. What are your thoughts? Did anyone get gypped? And who would you have picked for number 1?
If you were interested in reading The Hill’s “50 most beautiful” but just didn’t have time for all 50, fear not – their website offers you the option of the top 40, cutting down those extra 10 that pushed it over from reasonable and into screwing-off-at-work snoozeville.
It’s actually not the top 40 – it’s what’s left after they take out the top ten. I’d have called that the bottom forty but [choose your punchline].
1) the Senate is still a little touchy about certain language after that Larry Craig thing
2) this is Congressional math, after all.
3) in honor of new arrival Al Franken from Minnesota they’re going with the Lake Wobegon “and all the children are above average” concept.
