I think someone has a crush on Scott Brown. On the Jan. 18th edition of the O'Reilly Factor Quinn says this about Brown posing for Cosmo back in 1982.
But I think that there are a number of factors here. It’s not as black and white as it may seem. First of all Scott Brown is a hunk. And I think that the fact that he posed semi-nude for a magazine gave him a huge advantage in public recognition.
Name recognition... it made him a recognizable public figure which he was not before and also a lot of women think he's really cute.
I have to wonder if Ms. Quinn would be equally as charitable if this was a woman who posed semi-nude instead. This is one where I'm actually in agreement with some of the rightie bloggers out there that I refuse to link to, who thought this was an absolutely ridiculous thing to say as well, but of course some of them are using this as an excuse to call Quinn a "leftist". Spare me. She's a typical Villager snob who apparently has a thing for Scott Brown after watching this little episode of hers.
