It probably won't have any effect on the congressmen's presidential aspirations, but staff members on Capitol Hill have voted boy Sen. Bill Bradley and Rep. Dick Gephardt "Overrated." The vote was part of the Washingtonian magazine's "Best & Worst" upcoming issue, and each Senate and House office received one ballot. Del. Walter Fauntroy, who hopes to become this city's mayor, was the winner of the House "Work Shirker" category.

The two listed as "Headed for the Hall of Fame" were Senate Majority Leader George Mitchell and House Speaker Tom Foley. Voted as "Headed for the Hall of Shame" were Sen. Alan Cranston and Rep. Gus Savage. Savage also took the title "Worst Dinner Companion." Listed as the "Best Committee Chairmen" were Sen. Sam Nunn and Rep. John Dingell, often considered the toughest, meanest man on the Hill. Sen. Larry Pressler received the toughest blows by winning the title "Brain Dead" as well as "Work Shirker." And since so much of what happens in Washington takes place across the dinner table, it was significant that the always-funny Sen. Alan Simpson and Rep. Nancy Pelosi won "Best Dinner Companion." Out and About President Bush may drive his Secret Service contingent crazy, but he has maintained his promise not to allow his security force to keep him a prisoner in the White House. On the trip to his Camp David retreat Friday, Bush stopped off to play a round of golf at the Holly Hills Country Club in Frederick with former Chicago Bears tailback Walter Payton, author Dan Jenkins and Rep. Marty Russo. The group, minus Russo, ate at a Frederick seafood restaurant before going to Hagerstown for a minor league baseball game between the Hagerstown Suns and the Harrisburg Senators. Baseball fan Bush, sitting in the bleachers, once captain and first baseman of the Yale baseball team in 1948, may have set a record of sorts. It was believed to be the first visit by a president to a minor league game ...

In what may be another historic first, Rep. Lindy Boggs may be the first great-grandmother in the 201-year history of Congress. Her great-grandchild, Andrew Hale Boggs, is the son of Hale and Jackie Boggs, both Los Angeles lawyers. Hale is one of the 74-year-old Louisiana congresswoman's eight grandchildren. The baby, born this month, was named for his great-grandfather Rep. Hale Boggs, who died in a plane crash in Alaska in October 1972 ...

In one of those amazing turns of events, actor Gary Busey, who played Buddy Holly in the film biography of the rock legend, paid $242,000 for an acoustic guitar once owned by the star, who died in a 1959 plane crash when he was only 23. At Saturday's Sotheby's auction, another Holly guitar sold for $110,000 and a pair of the rock-and-roller's black horn-rimmed glasses sold for $45,100 to the Hard Rock Cafe. Pat DiNizio, lead singer of the Smithereens, paid $14,300 for a reel-to-reel tape recorder and microphone Holly used to compose songs ...

Iranian fundamentalists may have been successful in forcing author Salman Rushdie into hiding, but growing protests against the two-year-old movie "The Naked Gun" probably won't have much effect. The film, starring Leslie Nielsen, is now showing in four theaters in Turkey. There is a scene where the film's buffoon detective is brawling with an actor portraying Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini and knocks off the leader's turban, revealing an orange-spiked punk hairdo underneath. For this, the Iranian government has lodged a formal protest. Paramount Pictures, the distributor of the film, won't comment on the fuss except to say a sequel of the hit is planned ...
