I’ve been hearing a lot of hullabaloo about Senator Scott Brown’s nude photo lately and had yet to see it until recently.
Imagine my surprise when I did finally see the the ‘omg’ image to find it bland, pretty normal and well … ordinary.
I sat back and wondered to myself what was the big deal? It was taken when the Senator was 22, he was in great shape, he was young and his goodies were covered. So?
Then again, I’m a 25-year old, straight, female with an appreciation for a good looking man. I won’t lie, Brad Pitt in Troy was an *i dieee* moment.
The Senator himself has come out and said that it’s just a part of who he is.
Well, that could swing in many different other ways –
- As young people should we be mindful of our actions now, seeing as how they could dictate our future?
Think of Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton being synonymous with their sex tapes no matter what else they ever do.
- In the political sphere is this something that should be frowned upon?
Vanessa Williams DID get her crown for Miss America taken away from her because of her artistic nude photos that were released against her will. And those were artistic images, not something superficial or sexed-up for a glamilicious-gossip magazine.
But then again, Vanessa Williams was a part of a private organization with rules. I don’t think our Founding Fathers thought any of their Patriots would be getting painted in their birthday suits.
- Politicians are boring and ugly… right?
Well, no. Back in the 1990s Bill Clinton was a hottie for the Democrats. Well, no. I take it back, he was a hottie to Monica Lewinsky and a ‘man’s man,’ ‘player’ whatever you want to call him for the Democrats.
The Democrats also had John F. Kennedy who women today still think is one mighty fine piece of Irish.
Then of course there is John Edwards, but he’s well … dirty now.Â
But, the Left is graced with Super O-Bama and his hordes of fan girls … everywhere … on the planet.
And let’s not forget about when both Russian President Vladimir Putin and French President Nicolas Sarkozy has all those shirtless photos released. Now that was a meaty slab of politics.
Who does the GOP have? … … …
So maybe Scott Brown’s fratty, 1980s photo-op isn’t the sticky end of the stick (no pun intended)?
He was “America’s Sexiest Man” at one point.
Is it a big deal?
