Brown: 'Thank God' Warren Kept Clothes On

October 6, 2011

With just two words, Sen. Scott Brown, R-Mass., gave Democrats a gift.

When asked during a Democratic debate on Tuesday evening how she paid for college (given that Brown posed shirtless for Cosmopolitan to help pay for college), Democrat Elizabeth Warren replied, "I kept my clothes on."

Brown's response?

"Thank God," he said during an interview on WZLX radio Thursday morning, when asked if he had "officially responded" to Warren's comment.

"I didn't go to Harvard," Brown continued. "I went to the school of hard knocks and I did what I had to do to pay for school."

(WZLX has posted audio of the entire interview here.)

Not a smart move, politically. At a time when Warren is under a media microscope, and Brown has a positive approval rating and favorability numbers, strategically, the junior senator stands to benefit from not engaging too much, too early. Instead, he offered up a comment sure to anger women's groups and rally the Democratic base towards her side.
