Not so often do politicians grace the front pages of entertainment tabloids or blogs—that space is rightfully reserved for Hollywood A-listers and sports hotshots. But if you have been an almost permanent fixture of the U.S House of Reps—like Adam Schiff has—whose constituents include the glamorous Hollywood, Hollywood Hills, Pasadena, Silver Lake, Echo Park and the likes, then a space might be saved for you on that glossy front cover.
