Senator Playmate

by digby
If a woman had ever posed naked for Playboy, do you think Republicans would endorse her for the US Senate? No, I don't either.

But a macho, right wing dude showing off his hot bod for the ladies?  Not a problem:

Long before he was a politician, the Republican candidate vying for Ted Kennedy’s U.S. Senate seat posed nude for the centerfold of Cosmo. Scott Brown won our “America’s Sexiest Man” contest and appeared in the June 1982 issue. In those days he was a 22-year-old law student at Boston College who was cramming for finals just days before stripping down for our photographer.

“Here at Cosmo we’ve had bachelors go on to be actors, models, and reality show stars, so we’re thrilled that one has gone on to become a politician,” says Kate White, Cosmo’s editor in chief. Obviously we know how to pick ’em. This particular bachelor has always had political ambitions and even admitted to being “a bit of a patriot” when we interviewed him.
A very little bit apparently.

How long before Levi Johnston can run for congress?
