  • Hmm... "Leader Ralph Goodale", huh? Are they trying to imply that Stephane Dion is-

    Uh, never mind. My mind's clearly been warped.

  • Josh I'm thinking they mean "house leader". Otherwise both Goodale and Libby Davies have some 'splainin' to do.

    By Blogger Kuri, at 1:14 p.m.  

  • It's a travesty that Garth Turner failed to run away with the "Biggest Self-Promoter" crown.

    By Blogger Olaf, at 1:36 p.m.  

  • Any good looking ladies in Parliament Hill besides Ruby, Rona, and Helene?

    Shows that this poll is skewered towards young male readers of the Hill Times.

  • Shouldn't they give Myron Thompson a lifetime achievement award for worst-dressed male?

    By Blogger Ian King, at 2:19 p.m.  

  • Leader Ralph Goodale may be my fault - I did a copy and paste and I guess I didn't delete all of Ralph's pre-amble.

    Although, I do hear Ralph is tking French lessons... hmm...

  • Stephen Harper and Ralph Goodale as great orators? (Ralph's a great MP, but every occasion I've had to hear him speak has been pretty dull) Ignatieff I agree with; I've been extremely impressed with him.

    Pablo Rodriguez for Best Hair (Male)? Whenever I see him on TV/whatever, my first thought is that he really needs a haircut.

    Stoffer for Best Humour is a good call (and Todd Russell is the dark horse candidate on that list).

  • I would kill - mercilessly and savagely - to have Pablo Rodriguez's hair.

    But Peter MacKay's neighbour's dog is sexier than he is.

    By Blogger Jacques Beau Vert, at 3:15 p.m.  

  • None of these people are hip! I'd be floored if any of them knew Peter Bjorn and John, or have ever watched Text Message Break-Up on YouTube. George Bush is hipper than Scott Brison for pete's sake...

    By Blogger Jacques Beau Vert, at 3:20 p.m.  

  • For the best dressed woman, sit down MP's and senators... Michaelle Jean beats out any Ottawa politician by a mile and a quarter.

  • Thanks for your article, quite useful piece of writing.
