There is an old saying that "Washington is Hollywood for ugly people." That saying is a really good one.


First of all, yes, word nerds: "congress" is a word for sex. As in "sexual congress." So yes, is kinda named "Sexy Sex." More importantly, although it's taken at least 15 years since the technology that powered HotOrNot was first developed, someone finally created a website devoted to ranking Congress by eff-ability. If you're at work and can't be caught actually clicking through elected representatives and deciding which one you'd rather do (the option to kill or marry is not given), let me present you with some findings from the overall rankings.

1. America would rather have sex with women, although it doesn't elect all that many of them.

Almost half of the women in Congress appear on this list before the #1 dude.

There are 99 women in Congress, which amounts to fewer than 20% of the total membership. However, they DOMINATE the top of the "who would you rather have sex with" rankings. Either we as a nation just prefer the female form, or there are a lot of dudes using this website. OR, we unfairly judge women based on appearance, and so there are a lot more ugly dudes in Congress. I'm sure someone will write a PhD thesis on this using as their source by the end of the next academic year.
