Mass. Backwards

So yesterday, Massachusetts voted for a Republican for U.S. Senate (more on that later).

And today, I find myself politically in agreement with Glenn Beck and Cindy McCain.

Certainly, one of the (many, many) low points in the campaign was during Scott Brown's victory speech (around the 8:30 mark) when he essentially offered up his two twenty-something daughters as "available" to the national audience of potential suitors.  It felt like a reality show gone bad.  And Glen Beck agreed with me:

GLENN: But I don't understand the thinking of Scott Brown last night with his two daughters and national TV audience when he says this.
BROWN: And just in case anybody who's watching throughout the country, they're both available.
GLENN: And did you see me naked in Cosmo? Okay. Stop. Stop. Listen, listen, listen. Listen. I want to chastity belt on this man. I want his every move watched in Washington. I don't trust this guy. I'm just telling ya.
Pictured left is a photo of Cindy McCain who contacted the NOH8 campaign offering to lend her public support for marriage equality.  As explained on their website:

Aligning yourself with the platform of gay marriage as a Republican still tends to be very stigmatic, but Cindy McCain wanted to participate in the campaign to show people that party doesn't matter - marriage equality isn't a Republican issue any more than it is a Democratic issue. It's about human rights, and everybody being treated equally in the eyes of the law that runs and protects this country.
