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.
