Who’s Up For Another Dopey ‘Most Beautiful People’ in Washington List?

We suppose it’s all in the eye of the beholder, but this woman in No. 12? Really? Must be the hat.

Age: 70
Hometown: Miami
Political party: Democratic
Relationship status: Widowed

Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.) is one of the most recognizable members of Congress thanks to her hats.

The lawmaker almost always sports some type of headgear — usually a fedora or cowboy hat, and always color-coordinated to her outfit.

She says she has hats in every available color and there are too many of them to count.

But one place you won’t see her wearing them: the House floor, where headgear is forbidden.

The main story is here. Of course you’re dying to know who came in the top spot. A Republican, of course. The rest of the list is decidedly average, at best. Somehow No. 42 beat out No. 43. Go figure.

Update: Jake Tapper, the only media member on the list, is good-natured about it.

    good grief, the 30’s and 40’s are pathetic. #43 should have beaten most of them, she belongs in the 20’s imo.

    I don’t really want to look, but I assume Hillary is on the list. That alone should invalidate every single entry.

    OK, I looked. Either the word “beautiful” has entirely changed meaning or the judges really, really need new glasses.

    A couple of years ago they put Janet Napolitano on the list. Even lesbians with beer goggles wouldn’t put her on that list.

    Imagining these photo shoots makes me sad. Thank God airbrush isn’t a limited resource.
