Happy holidays! Now how about gun control?

I hope you and the ones you love have a happy and safe holiday.”President Obama campaign aide David Axelrod in a holiday/political note to supporters.

Fishbowl Summer Superlatives – THE RESULTS Part Deux

On Thursday, we began rolling out the results of our Summer Superlatives and today, you get to meet the rest of the winners. Thanks for voting.

Today’s results kicks off with the Best Dressed category. This cage match was between Politico’s Ken Vogel and Kate Nocerra, WaPo’s Jonathan Capehart, RCP’s Erin McPike, and CNN’s Kate Balduan. This contest wasn’t even close. While we had a feeling Capehart would be the clear winner, he was a very distant second to Kate Balduan! Congrats, Kate. Your prize is a $1 gift card to Fashion Bug!

Moving right along, we asked you to name Washington’s Best Writer. Your choices were The Weekly Standard’s Matt Labash, The New Yorker’s Ryan Lizza, NJ’s Major Garrett, NYT’s Mark Leibovich, Ashley Parker and Maureen Dowd, WaPo‘s Karen Tumulty, HuffPost’s Eliot Nelson, and Washingtonian’s Luke Mullins. This one was a close one to call. It was a two-man race between Garrett and Labash, but in the end, Major Garrett came through and was voted the winner. It should be noted that today is Garrett’s birthday.

Which Washington journo is Most In Need of a Salad? We asked you to choose between Politico’s Jonathan Allen and Jonathan Martin, Slate‘s Dave Weigel, HuffPost’s Peter Cherukuri and Jason Linkins, FNC’s Bob Beckel and Bret Baier, and author and former TWTer Rich Miniter. This was another category where it wasn’t even close. The FNC team of Bob Beckel and Bret Baier were the heavy favorites and waddled walked their way to an easy victory.

Next up, we had the category that saw more votes than any other, Sexiest. Your sultry selections were AP‘s Steve Peoples, Atlantic Publisher Justin Smith, Washingtonian‘s Kate Bennett, Real Housewives of D.C.’s sassy stylist Paul Wharton, CNN’s Brianna Keilar, NBC4′s Doug Kammerer and Maynard Institute’s Richard Prince. The winner by a slim, sexy (and consenting) majority was Brianna Keilar.

On the other side of the coin, we have Who is Most In Need of a Makeover? Your choices were CQ Roll Call (the entire publication), The Daily Caller’s Matthew Boyle, TWT’s Stephen Dinan, DCRTV’s Dave Hughes and Mediaite’s Tommy Christopher. Once again, this was a two-man race between Christopher and Boyle. While Christopher just looks generally disheveled, the overall train wreck that is Matthew Boyle was voted the winner. Congrats, Matt. We hear that Paul Wharton may be available to help turn you into a beautiful swan.

Last, but certainly not least, is the Best On-Air Personality. The heavy-hitters on this list were ABC’s Jake Tapper, The Daily Caller’s Tucker Carlson, MSNBC’s Chuck Todd, CBS’s Bob Schieffer and Nancy Cordes, HuffPost‘s Sam Stein, and WaPo’s Nia-Malika Henderson. At the end of the day, the experience of Schieffer couldn’t keep up with your winner, Jake Tapper!

Congratulations to all of our winners.

Travel Bitches

“Boarded flight to DFW on time. For an O’Hare layover, it wasn’t bad. Nowhere to sit, but we got pretzel dogs.” — JRC’s Community Engagement Director Steve Buttry. But everything wasn’t hunky dory. Mimi Johnson, Buttry’s wife, wrote, “Texting from the back of the plane with Steve Buttry, who is in the front of the plane. It seems that we agree #unitedsucks.”

Former Hill flak calls congressman a dumb racist

“So having the not very smart/racist congressman Steve King call you a better vp nominee than Sarah Palin is a good thing- right?” — former 21-year Hill flak Jim Manley, now a Senior Director at QGA Public Affairs.

For obvious reasons we couldn’t resist this from Mother Jones’ David Corn: “I was going to go fishing tomorrow. But I’ve canceled the trip because I’m too exhausted after fishing today. #ARomneyExcuse

But pool too far away to hear.” — NYT‘s Helene Cooper at the Iowa State Fair Monday.

Separated at Birth: CBS’s Nancy Cordes

CBS’ Nancy Cordes may not play a detective on TV, but she sure looks like British TV star Julie Graham, who in real life once aided in the arrest of a serial stalker after he bothered her on a train, reports The Telegraph. Turns out he’s a sex offender. Her help landed him in the slammer for 18 months.

But we digress. Here’s Cordes and Graham side by side.

Cordes Goes Under the Big Top for JDRF

CBS News’ Nancy Cordes took a break from covering Capitol Hill to join more than 500 Washingtonians at the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation’s (JDRF) 11th annual Night of Hope Gala this weekend.  The bubbly congressional correspondent served as emcee for the circus-themed event, which raised $1 million for diabetes research, through a seated dinner, live and silent auctions, and three rings of entertainment.  Cordes was joined under the Big Top by super committee member Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-MD) who was honored with JDRF’s Congressional Champion Award on Saturday evening.

Sunday Morning Panels: Only Males Need Apply

Things are looking up for females on at least some of the Sunday morning programs this weekend, as we conduct our routine count of how many wangs will appear on the shows. Please note minor and major changes to the feature. This week we’re including “Washington Week” with Gwen Ifill despite the fact that it airs live on Friday and repeats on Saturday. As you can see, the program is not allergic to women. This week you’ll also notice a smaller-sized photograph. FishbowlMatt approached yesterday saying some were offended by the larger sized penis picture as it was rubbing some the wrong way. So we’ve shrunk the penises and framed them in gaudy gold for a more refined look.
