Hollywood for ugly people

Can someone explain to me why DC-based publication The Hill persists in the uber-shallow exercise of publishing an annual list of the “50 Most Beautiful People” in Washington?

Not only does it make the paper’s publishers look like a bunch of cliquey high school girls — no offense, high school girls — but it just drives home the fact that, well, congressional staffers aren’t all that attractive. And as hard as DC may try, it not only isn’t Hollywood, it ain’t even Fresno.
