Scott Brown is rattled. He’s got to be – there’s no other explanation for the normally smooth, slick Scott Brown lashing out like a cornered animal on the public airwaves. Check out this interview on WZLX, just aired this morning.
Here’s a transcript, in case you can’t hear the audio.
HOST: Have you officially responded to Elizabeth Warren’s comment about how she didn’t take her clothes off?
BROWN: Heh heh heh heh. Thank God. Heh heh heh.
HOST: Heh heh heh heh. That’s what I said! I said, hey look, can you blame a good-looking guy for, you know, for wanting to…?
BROWN: You know what, listen, bottom line is, you know, I didn’t go to Harvard.
OK, a couple of things. First, “thank God”? Really, Scott? Look, you’re the guy who posed nude for Cosmo. You have to expect that you’ll get a few jokes about that. Just man up and take it. Frat-boy cracks aren’t exactly becoming to a sitting Senator. TPM, the Washington Post, and the Globe have already picked this up; I expect others will pile on shortly.
Second, you didn’t go to Harvard? Great. Neither did Warren. She graduated from the University of Houston, and got her law degree from Rutgers. And let’s not pretend that Tufts and BC law aren’t pretty fancy-dancy schools too.
