As readers know, I’m happy Scott Brown was elected as the new U.S. Senator from Massachusetts and I criticized Glenn Beck for his unhinged comments about Brown joking about his daughters being available. His comment that this is all going to end “with a dead intern” was ridiculous.
Still, some readers noted this photo, below, of Brown posing with his daughters, one of them in clam shells, which–if she weren’t flat-chested–wouldn’t cover much, and barely do, as it is. I gotta say, the picture looks like a tourist guy posing with waitresses at Honolulu Hooters. It appears they’re posing at some Hawaiian-themed luau-style party at their home.
Still, I can’t imagine most sane, protective fathers allowing their daughters to wear that kind of get-up, much less posing proudly with her in it. There’s something weird about it. It’s hardly a bikini. A certain “conservative” columnist–her name is Fraudkin–thinks it’s no big deal, while she’s made a career of attacking left-wing celebs who wear far more, but are still dressed immodestly (including Billy Ray Cyrus who posed in photos with daughter Miley). Hey, double-standards are under-rated, right? Yes, I didn’t have much of a problem with Brown’s posing nearly naked in Cosmopolitan magazine in 1982, which was 28 years ago. But it’s a different standard for guys (who pose shirtless all the time, etc. ), and he wasn’t exactly posing with his mother.
Let’s hope that in the future, Brown uses a little more fatherly and personal discretion. And also keep in mind, on the other hand, that if this were Ted Kennedy, he wouldn’t just be posing with them, he’d be forcing himself on top of them in a drunken stupor in the middle of a restaurant at lunchtime (or driving them into a river to die).
I’m sure he’ll be the best U.S. Senator we could imagine (and better) from Massachusetts. What do you think of the photos? Would you let your daughter or grand-daughter wear the clam shell pasties look?
