Get Ready to Swoon

Here, according to Politico, in perhaps the single stupidest thing they've ever published, are the Hunks of DC:



The "article" required two authors and an additional reporter.

Note: the article does not appear to be an intentional parody.

EDIT: it occurs to me that a better title for this would be "People Politico Reporters Will Compliment in Order to Get a Siren on Drudge."

Your kidding, right? Swoon over any of these guys? Who the hell is the person, second row, first photo? Yeah, he's somebody to swoon over. Don't recognize top row, 3rd picture...is that drown 'em in a bathtub? Oh the humanity, or lack there of.

I think it's nice that there's something Grover Norquist can win. I always imagine him as the guy who gets rejected at a bear event because he's so tedious.

Karen Zipdrive said...

I have the feeling being gay is not the reason why this group leaves me feeling 'meh.'

Distributorcap said...

if this is the best washington can do on the hunk front - no wonder people want condi back

Princess Sparkle Pony said...

I can assure you this isn't the case, Distributorcap. Let's call this one "I'm too insidery and I can't get it up."

babzter said...

I think "hunk" needs to be defined.

AustinDave said...

OK, I can totally get on board with Chuck Todd, but only if the also put on daddy bear Bill Richardson.

dingbatdc said...

Isn't this why they call DC "Hollywood for ugly people"????

Larry Ohio said...

I'm with AustinDave. I would plow Chuck Todd's field any day.

Frank said...

Yeah, I have a thing for Red Bear Chuck Todd, and Rahm and Cantor are definitely handsome fellows, and Orszag kinda does it for me in a geeky-hot way, but Hitchens, Paul, and Norquist? No. Just no. With a side of "Are you INSANE?!?" And to call any of these men "hunks" is just unconscionable, immoral, and unAmerican.

BLEAH!!!

There are only two remotely hunky guys in Washington today, and they are Congressmen Heath Shuler (D-NC) and Brad Ellsworth (D-IN). Any purported "hunk" list that doesn't include them is, as "Seinfeld's" Elaine Benes would say, "Fake, fake, fake, fake."

Matty Boy said...

The only way someone swoons over Christopher Hitchens is by trying to keep up with him when he's drinking. It's not so much "swooning" as vomiting and passing out, hopefully in that order.

Jenn said...

I have always thought the 3 on the bottom row were "DC hot". And I suppose I can see the appeal of Chuck Todd. Maybe. But the other 3? Seriously?

Anonymous said...

Obviously, Rahm is a babe but...uh Ron Paul? HITCHENS?

The man who co-authored this is obviously not gay, which leads me to believe this is some sort of misguided insult to women/gays.

I could get behind Rahm. More than once.

Heath Shuler? Really?? He's got 2 kids named Navy and Island!!!

I'm sorry, but Eric Cantor makes my skin crawl. The photo does not reveal the annoying voice (not to mentiont he things he is saying with that voice). SHUDDER.

desertwind said...

Ha ha. Power corrupts!

Are Politico and HuffPo in competition for "stupidest thing in the word -- but it allows the reader to get a dose of gossip without goin' directly to the People.com site"...

PS - Orzage is cute cute cute.

okojo said...

Grover Norquist has as much sex appeal as a banana slug. If you ever see him on TV, he comes across as uber creepy, and as the German say, "Boese Onkel"

mikey said...

Ron Paul is dead to me after reading his response to Sasha Baron Cohen's "Bruno" character.

HRH King Friday XIII, Ret. said...

No Congressman Aaron Schock???????????

Damn Council of Clerics. They rig EVERYTHING.

Anonymous said...

The only truly hot one is Rahm. He's a former dancer and has an amazing butt. I would totally hit that!

HarrySTruman2 said...

my nipples are hard.

I'm straight, so maybe I shouldn't comment. But as a high-end audio nut, I can't help noticing that Kathy Gornik somehow admires the completely creepy Grover Norquist, and my instinctive dislike of Thiel loudspeakers suddenly makes sense.

Rhode Island Rules said...

Eric Cantor makes my skin crawl too. He is a whiny little bitch, but in these photos he comes across as the "best" looking...eew...I just threw up in my mouth.

I'll pass.
They are all creepy, in their own little ways.

tireiron chef said...

If Eric Cantor is a hunk, it's the same way Ann Coulter is a babe. Ugh. To both.

Anonymous said...

Rahm is hot. Chuck Todd is sort of cute. But the only guy in DC that really gets my pulse racing is the President. Seriously, and all politics aside, the man is sexy.

shane said...

Ouch. As a straight woman, let me go on the record as saying: Not if any of them were the last ick-faced male on the planet. I'm drawn to Rahm and his Shiva-The-Destroyer persona, but still, no. Nuh-uh. And Chuck "Check Out My Manly Facial Hair" Todd? A smarmbucket.

g said...

I'll take Rahm, especially if he talks dirty to me.

The rest? Meh.

Anonymous said...

Hunk of WTF?

Karen Zipdrive said...

Yeah, Ron Paul is a real hunk.
How I'd love to be the meat in a Ron Paul/Mike Huckabee sandwich.
No, wait! Make that a Ron Paul, Christopher Hitchens sandwich.
Now, please excuse me while I Q-Tip the puke out of my keyboard.

Lulu Maude said...

T'was a typo. Was supposed to read Chunks of DC.

samael7 said...

"I do not think that word means what you think it means."

I'll take Rahm, especially if he talks dirty to me.

You know, I don't think he could talk any way other than dirty. He just seems like he'd have an absolutely filthy mouth. I think it's the eyes, which some might generously say are "bedroom," but to me say "bong."

Or "Tim Curry."

P.S. The Nebbish in #1 row two -- "hunk?" Hee hee! Aww, maybe that's what your mom would say, if she approved of your dating.

The top row is 100% unfuckable, except maybe Ron Paul because it would be so pervy -- like doing a respectable old ophthalmologist. But I'd have to be drunk to get into it.

The bottom row is 100% fuckable. Yeah, the middle guy looks like a douche, but he's probably all passive and lost in the bedroom, and I can work with that. And the "nebisshy" guy is the hottest one of them all -- so adorable and probably really eager and grateful.
