The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

27 July 2007

Speaking of overemphasizing appearance

Which, you'll remember, I was.

Fifth District Representative Mary Fallin, I note in passing, was named by D.C. news site The Hill (no relation) as one of the "50 most beautiful people on Capitol Hill." What's more, at 52, she's the third-oldest of the bunch. (Perennial hottie Nancy Pelosi, 67, is the oldest.)

Says the article:

When Rep. Mary Fallin (R-Okla.) was in her 20s, she was an extra in a movie starring Molly Ringwald.

Fallin, 52, doesn’t remember the film's title, but was also an extra in several other independent, "walk-by-type" movies and did some modeling, too. The stylish blonde, with bangs and blue eyes, is still a knockout.

"I'm 5-foot-6, but I'm not going to tell you my weight," Fallin said, giggling.

This is almost — not quite — enough to make me miss Ernest Istook.

Personally, I always giggle when I discuss my weight.

or is that 'gargle'? I always get those confused.

"I always giggle... or is that 'gargle'? I always get those confused."

And he wonders why no one will sit near him at Arby's.

I submit that I am one of the 50 most beautiful bloggers in metropolitan Philadelphia.

I've only met one, and she was a knockout, but I suspect that Eric Scheie fellow is kinda cute.

And in the absence of evidence to the contrary, E. M. Zanotti rules metro Detroit.

I suppose I'm the second most tolerable-looking blogger in Coweta County.
