Paterson's (not) too sexy

Paterson in Runners WorldPoor David Paterson can't catch a break these days. The economy's tanking, his poll numbers just keep on dropping-- and now this. Boston's alt weekly newspaper, The Phoenix, has named New York's accidental governor to its list of the 100 Unsexiest Men of 2009.

The Phoenix doesn't define sexy the same way as, say, People Magazine. Their "most unsexy" list is made up of what they call "the 100 most karmically bankrupt men on the planet."

Where did NY's governor land on the list? And who is he keeping company with?

Governor Paterson comes in at # 81 on the list, which makes him sexier than Rush Limbaugh (#1), Dick Cheney (#61) Joaquin Phoenix (#13) and the freecreditreport.com guy (#30), but less sexy than ultimate fighting's Dean of Mean Keith Jardine (#82), Twightlight star Robert Pattinson (#100), The New Kids on the Block (#90) and George W. Bush (#91).

Yeah? Well, tell that to the readers of Runner's World and the desk clerks at the Days Inn at 94th Street.

(Thanks, Rob!)

Sure, the luster has largely come off the governor's tenure, but New York's first lady remains as hot as ever.
