Good morning, Netizens...

Left over from yesterday, but thought-provoking nonetheless, Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate Scott Brown celebrates with his daughters Arianna (L) and Ayla (R) along with his wife Gail after giving a speech after winning the special election to fill the Senate seat of the late Edward Kennedy in Boston, Massachusetts January 19, 2010.

Now that's a first.


Senator-elect Scott Brown made his victory speech yesterday here http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/3036677/vp/34947016#34947016 and said something that I found interesting, and some say was borderline disgusting. Toward the end of his speech, he announced that his daughters, who were present on the platform with him, were "available". That further qualifies him for office, right?


His daughters, both of whom appear in this picture, did not make any public comment , although they did laugh when Brown stated he might be in trouble when he returned home that night.


The political upset, when Brown soundly defeated Mass. Attorney General Martha Coakley, his Democratic opponent, may have profound impact on political demographics in the US Senate according to several sources. Will it spell certain defeat for health insurance legislation? Although some sources suggest yes, I believe that remains to be seen.
