Now that Club Ted a/k/a Ted Kennedy is dead, I thought I’d never have to drag out the typically bloated picture of him, proudly displaying his man-boobs, er . . . “heavage,” ever again. But I thought wrong.
The Female Version of Him . . .
Ghost of Bloated Ted Kennedy a/k/a Martha Coakley
. . . Versus Him . . .
Scott Brown in 1982: I Know Who I’d Vote For
You can tell how desperate liberal Democrats are by the low-class tactics they perpetrate and the emptiness of those attacks. How desperate are Democrats in the race for Ted Kennedy’s U.S. Senate seat from Massachusetts? Pretty desperate. Conservative Republican Scott Brown looks like he may beat liberal Democrat candidate Martha Coakley, and they’ll do anything to stop it, no matter how low.
With the help of ABC News (watch the video) and other liberal mainstream media news outlets, liberals dug up an old centerfold of a nearly-nude Brown when he was 22-years-old, posing in Cosmopolitan magazine. He did the photo shoot when he won Cosmo’s “America’s Sexiest Man” contest. It’s really not news, since the photos were already posted by Ana Marie Cox a few years ago on her Wonkette site.
And it’s really not a big deal either, since it happened years ago, and the guy is an accomplished, down-the-line conservative. Plus, it’s not like he showed anything, and it’s not like it’s playgirl. But you know why they’re doing this. They have nothing, no substantive points to make against him, so instead they’re trying to paint the guy like he’s some kind of low-class Chippendale’s dancer from almost three decades ago. It’s ridiculous.
And I don’t get it. This guy only posed for a picture when he was very young and got an award. Those calling him out for that are from a party that celebrates a President who got Lewinskys in the Oval Office. Yet, conservatives are supposed to be upset because they have a hot guy who still looks like a movie star AND has the ideological and career chops to make him the best candidate for the job. Whatever.
Don’t forget, this is the party, whose most idealized President (pre-Obama) was a philandering Kennedy, who slept with Soviet, Mafia, and Cuban spies, and who got elected by women on the basis of his looks.
And it’s like we can’t win for losing. Conservatives and Republicans are always painted as unhip and stodgy. In Brown, we’ve got a smart, competent guy who’s also smokin’ hot, and we’re not allowed to have that either.
Bottom line: Our hot conservative guy versus the ghost of their bloated man-boobed uber-liberal guy and the equally far-left chick who wants to take his place? I know whom I’d be voting for. And it doesn’t hurt that he’s almost as easy on the female eyes today as he was 28 years ago.
Who says liberals have the monopoly on “sexy”? And since when is not having man-boobs a bad thing?
