Didn’t make the cut? There’s still time, you sexy thing.

Thanks to the ever-friendly and attentive MBFan#2, we have been alerted to TheHill.com, which has compiled a list of the 50 Most Beautiful People on Capitol Hill.

That’s cool and all, but what about those of us who don’t work on the Hill and were thus automatically disqualified? What about the Tom Bridges, Don Whitesides and Carl Weavers of the world? Aren’t we sexy enough?

It is for this reason that I am now taking nominations for our own contest, the 50 Most Beautiful DC Bloggers and Blog Readers. Who cares about the folks on the Hill? Come on – like Mustafa Ali has anything on Doug Clifton. Ladies, am I right?

Here are the rules. The person you nominate cannot be on the list TheHill.com has already compiled. We have already established that that list is elitist because it does not include us. The nominee has to be either a blogger or avid blog reader living or working in the DC area. Nominate and discuss in the comments and be sure to link to a photo so we can make a sound decision. Also include a link to the nominee’s blog or favorite blog.

Who would you nominate? Let’s get those votes coming in! Self-nominations are always appropriate, by the way, for those of you who know you are among the beautiful bloggerati.

    I think you have to put the following people up:

    Chris Needham (dcbb.blogspot.com)
    Sommer Mathis (DCist)
    Ryan Avent (DCist)
    Martin Austermuhle (DCist)
    The DCeiver (dceiver.blogspot.com)
    Catherine Andrews (washingtonian.com)

    At least. Me, I’m out of the running, I know I’m fugly, man ;)

    Really Carl, while I don’t think that hat is as ugly as some homeless people do I am well aware it is more functional than flattering. Using that picture of me is pretty much a guarantee I’m a first-round washout.

    Damn, Max beat me to self-nomination, but he missed a key point: the man-tastic photo.

    Thanks, Elise. I am a hit with the ladies, as you know, but I am out of the running on this one, since I am the judge. In my place, I will nominate Jonny Goldstein and Jill Foster.
