And the Winners Are...

For those who missed it, the Hill Times released their annual MP awards (referred to as the "Hillies" my me and, nobody else). And the winners are...

Sexiest MP

First Maxime Bernier takes over Peter MacKay's job in foreign affairs. Then he ends MacKay's 9 year reign as the "sexiest MP" on the Hill. Anyone know who Belinda is dating these days?

For the women, Rona Ambrose was voted sexiest MP - and here I'd thought she was invisible.

Best Sense of Humour

The NDP's Peter Stoffer takes this one, ahead of Monte Solberg and Merv Tweed. I don't know much about Merv Tweed, but I can't imagine someone named "Merv Tweed" not being funny.

Stoffer is the "Frasier" of the Hillies, winning a slew of awards this year - best constit MP, throws best hill parties, and most generous to staff.

The worst sense of humour list is no surprise - Stephen Harper, Stephane Dion, Ralph Goodale, and Peter Van Loan.

Worst Dressed

With Myron retiring, someone else will finally have a chance to win this one but, until then, it's no contest.

Best Orator

Iggy and Harper in the house. Harper and Iggy out of it. Meanwhile, Prentice and Baird tie as the best Cabmin in QP, followed by Van Loan and MacKay.

Most Quotable

Stephen Harper, which makes sense given that he doesn't let anyone else in his caucus talk. Harper also takes hardest working - since he's basically running and entire party and country by himself, I'd say that's fair enough. And he completes the hat trick with "best fundraiser" - it's shocking that a Liberal didn't win that one, eh?

Biggest Gossip

Pierre Pollievre edges out Garth Turner and Ruby Dhalla.

Most Ambitious

Hey, it's Pierre Pollievre again! Runner up to Ignatieff. Pierre is left off the "best up and comer" list though (for obvious reasons some might say) - instead, it's Navdeep, James Moore, Mark Holland, and that young wipper snapper Bob Rae.

Biggest Self-Promoter

6 names make the list due to ties: Baird, Pollievre (again!), Turner, Iggy, Holland, and Layton.

And, finally, the one we've all been waiting for,

Best Hair

It's Pablo Rodriguez and Helena Guergis.


  • Nice to see that the horse-faced MacKay has been sent out to pasture. Don't understand though how Ruby Dhalla...she's the bomb.

    Kinda sad that Iggy beat out Dion for best opposition MP. Even though these awards are supposed to be a little funny...this one is just another bad sign for Dion. People are already looking beyond him for silly things like this.

    Finally, I think I want to work and party with Peter Stoffer.

  • If Pablo ever loses best hair, there will be a revolution.

  • How did Pat Martin not win most quotable or biggest self promoter? The man has a knack of getting clips on the news. Did the Hill voters sit out the entire Schreibman-Mulroney affair?

  • doesn't Rona have the "best hair".

    ok, maybe the "biggest hair"

  • Pat Martin was also the winner of "Best use of a Puppet in a Press Conference".

  • Mark "Hair" Holland should get an honorable mention for his coiffure.

    By Blogger Brian Dell, at 1:33 p.m.  

  • I've never understood the 'Rona is hawt' thing. Just confuses the hell of outta me.

    Echoing rob c - Ruby D. is da bomb.

    By Blogger Frank Frink, at 8:31 p.m.  

  • Myron deserved best dressed. By far.

    By Blogger Brad, at 2:43 a.m.  

  • You may want to check your spelling on the names.
