Dear Readers: Sally Quinn, a writer at the Washington Post made an interesting statement regarding Scott Brown today during the O’Reilly Factor. Gateway Pundit has the details; she seems to think that a tasteful 1982 photo spread is the key to his surging support among the Massachusetts electorate:
First of all Scott Brown is a hunk. And, I think that the fact that he posed semi-nude for a magazine gave him a huge advantage in public recognition.”
I must note that I became aware of Hottie McAwesome via HillBuzz, from whom I clipped this essential graphic:
(1982 was a sweet year; the Duran Duran album Rio came out, and I swooned over a young Simon LeBon. Good times, good times).
I will point out that Quinn and the Democratically-inclined elite media are being hypocritical when they derisively mention the Cosmo spread. After all, the elite media told us to marvel at the magnificent manhood that is President Obama as he romped on the beach in Hawaii:
Best thing about Scott — he won’t wear “mom jeans”.
Speaking of that Hawaii vacation — wasn’t Obama working 36 hours-a-day to undo the damage caused by the Bush administration? Per a senior at a Coakley rally this weekend:
“People are upset because there’s so many problems,” Rosemary Kverek, 70, a retired Charleston schoolteacher said as tonight’s rally wrapped up. “But the problems came from the previous administration. So we’re blaming poor Obama, who’s working 36 hours a day … to solve these problems that he inherited.”
When, exactly, would that work be?
During Hawaii vacations?
While visiting the all-American city of….Copenhagen…twice.
Golfing (where he outdoes Bush in the amount of time on the greens by a significant margin)?
During state dinners, as he insults heads-of-state?
During the Obama’s Wednesday Night Cocktail parties?
While taking Michelle out to New York for romantic dates?
At least Scott Brown seems ready to roll: Brown: If I win, I’ll be in D.C. on Friday. I sense Obama will be none too pleased with this development — Obama to take “combative” approach to Brown victory. It will be a veritable battle of the hunks!
I hope that when Scott arrives in D.C., he pops a few wheelies in the White House driveway in his GM Truck.
Some people may be concerned about poll information, reporting that Coakley is 1 point up. While it is important not to get cocky, I have good hope, for three reasons:
1) Check the phone banks (courtesy of Red Mass Group):
2) People willing to stand in the chill air for rallies will probably brave the elements to cast an actual vote.
I attended one of four Scott Brown rallies held today, this in Littleton MA. It’s a small, pretty town west of Boston (pop. ~9,000). A crowd of some 300-400 revved up people stood in the slushy, cold, slippery sidewalk in front of the Scott Brown campaign office, across from the Littleton common.
3) A Perfect Storm; a snippet from a great analysis from Jules Crittenden:
It’s bizarre. It’s as though the state’s one-party government has been taunting the voters.
Chances are now that a certain pent-up sense of annoyance and desire for a check, or a shot across the bow, is in large part what is motivating a lot of Massachusetts voters in the United States Senate race, as much as any reaction to Coakley’s arrogance and ineptitude on the campaign trail, or Obama’s agenda, arrogance and ineptitude in DC.
As Voting Female Speaks notes — revenge is a dish that is best served cold. To end things, a clip from an iconic American Movie — The Wrath of Khan.
