TLP: HuffPost Bummed, Totally Should Have Used AOL to Hit on Congresswoman
Talk about rejection. The Huffington Post didn't even get to flash its $315 million bank account at U.S. Rep. Kristi Noem before she shot the website down for calling her the "Hottest Freshman" in Congress. Or something.
From HuffPost, which doesn't even seem embarrassed:
Well, this is unfortunate. It appears that Huffington Post's newest "Hottest Freshman," Representative Kristi Noem (R-SD), is not elated by the accolade.The story on HuffPost rambles about some congressman who won the same "contest" a couple of years ago and used it to blather on about whatever it was he wanted to do as a freshman House member. And then, not getting the message, HuffPost asks its favorite new hottie to blog for it and gets nowhere with that, either.
In an interview last week with The Daily Caller, the ravishing rancher finally addressed the "Hottest Freshman in Congress" title she won in January: "I thought that was kind of an unfortunate distraction, I guess, when that came out. I don't think about that too much. I'd rather they were talking about my solutions for our country rather than that, but we'll get there." ...
After being sworn in last month, Noem was up against seven other handsome congressional contenders for "Hottest Freshman." 10,000 votes later, our readers let it be known that they found Noem to be the fairest of them all.
Oh well, as bad as this was, it could have turned out much worse.
