    I like reading the Washingtonian blogs, but you didn't REALLY just use the word "douchiest" in an article, indeed in a headline, did you? Besides the fact that there are much more intelligent adjectives out there to convey your point, that's just gross. Is this the image you want for Washingtonian Magazine? And it's no answer that the article that you linked to uses the words -- you could still have come up with something more appropriate.
