The New Puritans at the Huffington Post are all offended because Gail Huff, wife of newly elected Senator Scott Brown (R-MA, baby!) appeared in a racy music video back in the ’80s.
This video hardly qualifies as racy, but when compared to what the HuffPo’s readers probably view on a regular basis – for instance, this not-safe-for-work gem from Paula Cole – it’s kiddie fare. In sort of the same way the Beatles started to look all cute ‘n’ cuddly to my parents when my sister started listening to Steppenwolf.
Breathless, the HuffPo goes on to tell us:
Oh! The scandal! Scott Brown’s daughters…wear bikinis! Honestly, you’d think it was kiddie porn the way they’re going on about it. All right…the photo may prove they have really bad taste in swim wear but it’s a family vacation photo, apparently in Hawaii. How many of you have something similar tucked away?
Personally, I don’t find any of this shocking. Not the video, the Cosmo spread or the bikini-clad daughters. But if this is the standard to which the left would like to be held, hey, I’m all for that.
