Politicians are nerdy at heart, even former New York Congressman Anthony Weiner, who seemed to think he had the hottest abs on Capitol Hill (he clearly never saw the June issue of Men’s Health magazine). When politicos aren’t dressing to impress, un-dressing to impress, or maintaining a serious image, they resemble regular citizens. As observed by one onlooker, Sen. Rand Paul keeps it casual on the metro and is unafraid to slouch a little. Former President George W. Bush wears sunglasses at night. Former White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel cozies up to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. These folks usually look flattering, but like the rest of us, they have their awkward moments. Scroll through our slideshow to see some of our favorite nerdtastic, dorky and odd pics of political figures.
