"Beauty" may not be the first word that comes to mind when it comes to the epicenter of national politics.
But The Hill, a public policy news site, attempts to alter that mindset with its annual "50 Most Beautiful" list.
The rankings are of the most attractive people working in and around the nation's capital. Coming in at number three is a native of Yardley, Bucks County.
Mike Sacks, who covers Congress for the National Law Journal, won the metaphorical bronze medal in this year's list. Here's more from The Hill:
Mike Sacks is just your average National Law Journal congressional correspondent who digs air guitar competitions, epic poems and yoga pose attempts.
A self-described news junkie who “loves words,” Sacks once adapted John Milton’s Paradise Lost into a screenplay.
“I love rock 'n' roll, reading and the Supreme Court.”
Sacks' selection to the list didn't stop some haters from coming his way. The Week published "The 10 most groan-worthy quotes from The Hill's '50 Most Beautiful' list, ranked" shortly after the piece was published.
Those bits about air guitar and a John Milton screenplay earned him the number one and three spots on that list.
No harm, no foul for Sacks. The journalist had a good sense of humor about it:
Also on the list was Chambersburg, Pennsylvania native Christopher Gindlesperger, the vice president of public affairs for the National Confectioners Association, and Atlantic City native Paul Vitrano, vice president of global government relations at Polaris Industries.
