District of Catches

Andrew Sullivan linked to this annual ranking of the 50 most beautiful people on Capitol Hill. And yes, there are some attractive people here, but most of the women look like interchangeable do-gooders who have been practicing answers in the mirror for the how-to-save-the-universe question at the end of beauty pageants and most of the men look like generically ambitious former intramural-sports stars who have been practicing how to look genuinely interested when hot D.C. women start talking about how to save the universe.

Having said that about the vast majority of those chosen, could there have been an easier decision about who to rank number one? They didn't mess that up, but how could they have? Sweet merciful lord in heaven.

Um. Wow. 49 of these people wouldn't even make the top 200 of a similar contest in NYC. Now I dont feel so bad about the nagging inferiority complex I get when I walk around Soho. -- Tavia.
