In a snarky post on her Huffington Post blog, Colleen Werthmann ranked several of the winners by “hotness” in her “Gravitas-Challenged Pulitzer Prize Winner Hottie Rundown.” Werthmann scored each Pulitzer winner on a scale of 1 to 4 Moleskines, those trendy notebooks you see for sale at Barnes & Noble.
The good news for Blackledge is that not all of the Pulitzer winners were featured in the blog post. The bad news is that, of those who were, he came in dead last, with a score of 2.75 Moleskines. If that weren’t bad enough, he came in behind novelist Cormac McCarthy, and that guy’s, like, 73 years old.
At least, Werthmann didn’t size up Blackledge with this picture (above) from his bio on the Pulitzer website. We haven’t seen a mug shot that bad since Joel Montgomery kissed the pavement. And that thing above his right ear — is that a booger?
