"One thing we can all agree on? Washingtonians are ugly." -- Wonkette

"In Washington, 'an ounce of perception is worth a pound of performance,' while in Hollywood, performance counts." -- Ronald Bailey

"If Hollywood is high school with money, and Washington is Hollywood for ugly people, what can viewers expect when Sarah Jessica Parker comes to D.C.?" by Jason Anthony, Hollywood Reader, Publishers Weekly, August 15, 2005
