WASHINGTON (CNN) – Who says bipartisanship is dead?
Readers of the liberal Web site the Huffington Post have crossed ideological lines and voted Illinois Republican Rep. Aaron Schock the “Hottest Freshman” in the 111th Congress.
At age 27, Schock also has the distinction of being the youngest member of Congress.
Although nearly 10,000 votes were cast in the site’s poll, Schock suggested that he might have gotten some help from some participants who weren’t exactly unbiased. “It’s flattering,” the congressman said in a statement Wednesday. “Apparently my friends and family have a lot of time on their hands.”
Schock hails from Peoria, Illinois and represents the state’s 18th District in the House of Representatives.

Will someone explain to me just how this is "newsworthy?"
My gaydar is going off like mad with this guy!
What do you mean by Hottest? Good Looking? OK, but just because he is young and good looking doesn't mean a thing if he still thinks the same as the OLD GOP........
Repugs really doing well in the "cute" category. Now we have this youngster AND Sarah Palin to look at. Just so I don't have to listen.
This is just wonderful. Another person running politics because some morons think he's cute.
I guess if cute is what does it Jessica Fox or Jessica Biel should be President instead of Obama.
Don't worry, he'll become less desirable as he votes with his party to trample women's rights, wreck Obama's stimulus package, and promote silly projects like abstinence-only sex ed.
I'm sure Larry Craig is saying the same thing.
More hard-hitting reporting from CNN. Just a tip for you: NO ONE CARES.
First let me say he hasn't done enough yet for me to make a judgment. However, I have to comment how CNN continually limits the number of negative comments that can be made about Sarah Palin. Notice that they have cut off the responses to anything about her in all the recent articles they have placed on the blog. Today they cut it off at 14. The other day they cut it off I believe at 9. However, when it is negative against a democrat, they let it go on for over 100. They must be trying to help groom Palin for her presidential run in 2012. CNN you are losing your credibility.
Can Americans decide on what choice to make with Matt's body?
why does this matter????
Just to be clear,
I am NOT talking about rape, incest victims or for the health of the mother. I am strickly talking about using abortions as a method of birth control.
Yes, they can make choices with their bodies, but they shouldn't expect tax payers to pay for their choices of what they do with their body. We should have a choice too in not funding someones practice of birth control.
Matt – as opposed to the choices they make regarding their child's body?
I agree that he's cute. But wait until he starts messing around with hookers while putting up a self-righteous front. That's what Republicans do, isn't it?
A neo-con's parents on Huff?
who cares, they suke at everything they do and stand for right now their only hope is to put their leader and mesiah Rush Limbaugh so they can survive at this rate.
Who the hell cares what HuffNut Post thinks?
How could he lose?
He is the only one not on Medicare.
The correct story is
Ashley Judd takes on Palin.
Can't you people get anything right?
Now I know why you are called the Communist News Network.
And 8 Years from now, he'll be eligiable to run for President.
Huffington Post readers must be idiots to vote for this mentally challenged political hack
The GOP is throwing everything they got. First it's Palin, 2nd-Joe the plumber, 3rd-Limpbaug, 4th- RNC Chairman (who has no clue they are using him and we are not biting) and now Opie. Who's next. Its the old who's on first joke. The key word here is JOKE.
The correct story is Judd takes on Plain.
Now I know why you are called the C o m m u n i s t News Network.
