The 10 Sexiest Everyday Men of 2008.

Jezebel produces a ‘Sexiest’ list I can actually agree with. I’m down with 7/10 of their choices. And of course, they’ve got Barack* and pocket-sized Rahm Emmanuel, plus some other smart fellas.

What say you, ladies and gents?

*While I’m not feelin’ Barack the way Brokey McP is (link sorta-NSFW), I can see why others do.

SEXY LIST UPDATE: PostBourgie perennial favorite Jay Smooth was listed on Salon.com’s Sexiest Man Living round-up. I can’t say I disagree. (Oh, and Robert Downey Jr. ftw!)

    i think they need a more well rounded list…

    the first 5 are political figures…democratic ones at that…

    LF- And which sexy republicans are you thinking of?

  • rakia

    Wyatt, yes.
    Justin, no.
    Jason, hell no.
    Rahm & B, yes.
    Ezra, yes.
    Reggie, yes please!
    Nate, maybe.

  • Grump

    As a guy, I’d add Amy Holmes to my list….

  • rakia

    Oh, we’re doing women too now. In that case, I’d like to nominate myself. I can do that, right?

  • Grump

    I’m sorry Rakia, but I don’t know you….

    co-sign on Amy Holmes. She’s beautiful, even if she’s a complete and total hack. She’s useless as a pundit. (or is that redundant?) (and was that a rhyme?)

    1) Amy Holmes

    3) Eva Longoria(Now that they made her look les glamourous)
    4) Journee Smollet
    5) Janelle Snowden(I didn’t pay attention to her in undergrad)
    6) Sage Steele

    I’m coming up short with everyday women

  • http://www.shanio.com shani-o

    What, Sarah Palin doesn’t make your list, Grump??

    Hmm, my list of the sexiest everyday women would probably include

    Michelle Obama
    Kerry Washington
    Rachel McAdams
    Tina Fey
    Ann Curry
    Esperanza Spaulding

    Um…

    I have to admit that Barack’s mole kind of bugs me.
    Rahm, okay, yes.
    Reggie’s head is a funny shape. No.
    Nate, maybe, but not in that pic.
    Ezra, Jason, Justin, no.
    Wyatt, based on the picture, yes.
    Sasha, based on the picture, no. Looks too much like Chris Kattan doing Mr. Peepers.
    This Baby Daylove person who I have never heard of, based on the picture, yes.

    I thought they were supposed to be “everyday” people! Movie stars can’t count because they are paid to look good. The only one I disagree with on the list is that Justin kid. Anyone who disagrees with Jason Segall has never seen Forgetting Sarah Marshall. He is adorable. And I don’t know what it is about Nate Silver, but I just want to squeeze him until he pops!

  • Grump

    I’d add Tina Fey. Padma Lakshmi, too….

  • rakia

    If I can’t put myself on the list (thx, grump), then I nominate Liz Cho from New York’s ABC news affiliate. Yeah, she’s on tv, but it’s the news so it’s different. She’s quite lovely when she turns the make-up down.

    Also Colson Whitehead.

  • robynj

    bitchPhD: cosign on alla that.

    quad: After seeing “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” I feel like I’ve seen all I’ll ever need to see from Jason. Yeah… I’ll pass.

  • quadmoniker

    Robynj: Lol. I guess I think he’s cuddlier than he is sexy.
    Colson Whitehead also is very handsome.
    Tina Fey doesn’t count as a TV personality because she started as a lowly writer, so I think she’s safe on the list. Padma Lakshmi started life as a professional model as is Salman Rushdie’s wife, so I don’t think she’s allowed on any list with the word “everyday” in the title. Though I’m sure G.D. would agree with you that she belongs on some kind of list.

    I would add David Plotz, editor of Slate. I saw a video with him and his wife and he’s tall and seems really sweet.

  • Grump

    Salman was hitting that? Oh HELLS nah!!!!

  • http://www.shanio.com shani-o

    Grump – LOL *was* is right. They’re now divorced, I believe.

  • ladyfresshh

    junot diaz

    mathematicians

    Marcus du Sautoy

    computer geeks

    Omar Wasow

    it just felt like they wanted a reaosn to say obama is sexy

  • Grump

    Writers
    Suzan Lori Parks
    “The Black List” is playing On-Demand, and I’ve developed a crush on her.

  • ladyfresshh

    exactly quad! @ Colson Whitehead

    just a more rounded list

  • ladyfresshh

    omg Grump speaking of which
    Bill T Jones = sexy older man

  • Grump

    Bill T Jones reminds me of Lt Daniels.

    I have to throw in Tamron Hall, those two light skin brothas over at CNN – Dan Lemon and T.J. Holmes and I have to shout out my local news babe Adrienne Bankert over at KCRA 3. Good lookin’ on the Amy Holmes name drop. I didn’t know they made foxy conservatives! Okay, since I said that, who’s gonna be the first one to throw Michelle Malkin on their list? Yech!!!

    I don’t agree with too many on the list (4/10: Obama, Silver, Segal, and Cenac). They’ve left out everyday Latinos. And I can’t think of too many right now.

  • http://www.myspace.com/altablack Ralph H. Manningfield

    Hey cindylu, what about that stud Rick Sanchez over at CNN?

  • Grump

    Ralph, I cannot add Ms Hall to this list due to the rampant sexcapades that I have heard from my friends in Chicago, that include her name as one of the main characters.

  • http://www.shanio.com shani-o

    So Grump, are you saying woman isn’t sexy if she has a lot of sex?

    Ralph- KCRA? Where are you? I’m from Stockton.

  • Grump

    Padma Lakshmi and Tamron Hall are still sexy. But, I cannot list them for the fact that I know who is in their past, which has taken away the possibility of any bliss happening.

    Kind of like knowing a chick was married to, or seriously dated, Mike Tyson.
