Rep. Bart Gordon yesterday seized his 20th straight win as Fastest Man in Congress in the American Council of Life Insurers' Capital Challenge three-miler -- despite facing new competition from abs-of-steel freshman Rep. Aaron Schock. The 60-year-old beat the 27-year-old by more than a minute, with 18:49. Jean Schmidt was again the fastest female rep, at 23:11; and Sen. John Thune ran 19:47 to reclaim his fastest-senator title from John Ensign, 23 seconds slower. Best team name? Rep. Jane Harman and four staffers, running as "Tapped Out," hahaha.
