That 1980 centerfold pose by Scott Brown? Not a problem in the Massachusetts Senate race, says Robert Stacy McCain:
This September item at Cosmo’s Web site was almost certainly an opposition-research hit from the Coakley campaign. The Democratic idiots probably figured that the revelation that Brown had posed nude when he was 22 would hurt him with the “value voters.” But for every stuffy prude who was offended by the Cosmo pictures, the Republican candidate picked up at least three votes from chicks with a non-partisan admiration for his bod.
This assumes that there actually are people who would cast a vote based on a candidate’s physical appearance, to which I say, um, please don’t look at this.
