Okay, now read on:
It didn't take long for Sen. Scott Brown's naked centerfold in Cosmopolitan magazine to come up in his bid for reelection. Democratic frontrunner Elizabeth Warren took a shot at Mr. Brown this week, responding, "I kept my clothes on" when asked at a primary debate how she paid for college. "Thank God," Mr. Brown said, when asked for a response on the Boston radio station WZLX. Mr. Brown, a Republican, has frequently defended his 1982 appearance in the magazine, where he posed nude to earn money for college.
Drawing laughter from the disc jockeys, he added, "Whatever, let her throw stones, I did what I had to do. But not for having that opportunity, I never would have been able to pay for school and I probably wouldn't have gone to school and I wouldn't be talking to you, so whatever."
As I await the inevitable lefty howls of "misogynism" or whatever, I'll openly admit that I got quite a chuckle over Brown's one-liner. Sure, it may have been a tad impolitic for today's hyper-sensitive political climate, but she opened the door for that joke, and Senator Brown walked right through it. Well played, sir.
