Massachusetts GOP Wants to Replace Kennedy With a Vintage Porn Star

Who will the Republicans choose to run for Ted Kennedy's seat in Massachusetts? Probably an ex-porn model named Scott Brown. Here he is, naked, posing for Cosmo in 1982, when male body hair was still cool, thanks to Burt Reynolds.

Brown, a Massachusetts state senator, is the most prominent politician to announce for the suicide mission that will be the GOP nomination to replace Kennedy. In 1982, when he was a 22-year-old law school student, he won Cosmo's "America's Sexiest Man" contest and agreed to take his clothes off for money and/or fame. Unsurprisingly, he went on to father an American Idol contestant named Ayla Brown. It's a family of dreamers!

UPDATE: Whoops! Sorry to make you look at it twice.
