Change We Can Believe In

Ted Kennedy, who?

If Scott Brown really wants to be the first Republican Senator from Massachusetts since Edward Brooke (who was the kind of "light-skinned black man" favored by Harry Reid), then he should put this 1986 Cosmo centerfold of himself in every polling booth. Oh sure, voting would take a little longer but I think even his opponent Martha Coakley would throw her support behind him after staring at his strategically placed hand for a few minutes. At the very least, she would try to pull the lever.

Now, I'm not one of those cougar babes who chooses a candidate based on Matinee-idol good looks or the 1980's equivalent of six-pack abs, but a little beauty in the Senate couldn't hurt. I'm from New Jersey. I hope I die without ever seeing Frank Lautenberg's pubes. Ick. That is one magic carpet ride I don't ever want to take.

I seem to remember a line that goes something like, if you can hide "it" with one hand, why bother?!

Unless, you have freakishly large hands. But, let's give the guy the benefit of the doubt and concede that there may be a little tucking going on.

OTOH - maybe he "dresses" to the left and is hiding it with his forearm.

I was surprised when Coakley's campaign tried to make hay with this. I guess they really think Republican voters are as prudish as Democrats like to portray them as being. I don't know anyone - including my genuinely prudish, Democrat aunt - who would refuse to vote for a candidate based on a very tame nude picture taken over 20 years ago.

Keith Olberman said, “In Scott Brown we have an irresponsible, homophobic, racist, reactionary, ex-nude model, teabagging supporter of violence against woman and against politicians with whom he disagrees.”

If we are to use the liberal formula that hating something really means you want to have sex with it, then Keith Olberman wouldn't be able to hide the woody he has for Brown with both hands.

Well, he sorta got the ex-nude model part right.
