The Massachusetts senator-elect’s wife, who now works as a reporter for Boston station WCVB-TV, starred in singer Digney Fingus’ 1984 video for a song called “The Girl With The Curious Hand.”
In the video (BELOW), Huff struts around and sunbathes in a black bikini, the top of which she removes at one point before diving into water. At the song’s climax, she suggestively squeezes a tube of sunscreen, perhaps explaining the curiosity of this girl’s hand.
Attila pokes fun at the HuffPo,
Via Treacher, who is getting a lot of pleasure out of the fact that the gang at Huffington Post seems to genuinely believe this is going to hurt Scott Brown’s political career. Never mind that Massachusetts is a liberal state, and
its other Senatorone of its congressional reps* is gay (for starters). Never mind that other liberal states—like, oh, let’s say, California—have elected people we thought were Republicans who boasted about having had orgies at Gold’s Gym in Venice when they were young. And we knew it when they were campaigning. And we didn’t care.
And never mind that the voters in MA knew that Brown himself had posed, not in a bikini, but buck naked in his own younger days. (And didn’t even know enough to move his arm, dammit. Senator: watch the arm. Get it out of the way. Geez.)
So. Whassup?—Democratic optimism about hoping to see a promising politician who’s nominally on the other side go down in flames? Or rank stereotyping about anyone even vaguely related to the Republican party being a hardcore SoCon?
I’m thinking a bit of both, but Treacher’s right: this is pretty freakin’ funny. I didn’t read more than a few comments at HuffPo, but I like the ones who are genuinely angry that there are a few physically attractive Republicans out there, like Brown, Romney and Palin. I wonder if these are the same people who were pissed off about Rush Limbaugh being severely overweight in the 1990s. Or who loved to make fun of the way Katherine Harris (mis) applied her makeup back in the day. Or Newt Gingrich’s less-than-photogenic appearance.
Because, in the HuffPo’s view, all conservatives are ugly by virtue (puns always intended) of being conservative.
