Scott Brown’s Daughters

I think last night really demonstrated the immediacy and power of Twitter. When Scott Brown announced that his daughters were “available,” Kathleen McKinley sent this tweet in real time:

I saw a few more tweets from women bloggers who were similarly shocked. It wasn’t the high point of Brown’s speech, but he’s easily forgiven considering the emotional high of the moment.

It turns out that Glenn Beck‘s not cutting Brown any slack:

I wish Beck would have laid off this bit, especially since he’s ostensibly on Brown’s side, but what can you do.? The show must go on. Dan Riehl has more:

Oh, I know. It’s just comedy. But it won’t be in two years when liberals supporting Brown’s opponent troll it up to initiate a discussion around Scott Brown’s victory speech – without the context of the whole thing. Nah, they’ll just be citing a former CPAC speaker to engage in smear tactics against Brown because Beck is being given political credibility by the Right.

Most won’t appreciate that, now. But Beck’s radio show which, truthfully, relatively few people listen to compared to the other national hosts, will provide the Left with a treasure trove of remarks taken out of context to hurt the Right at the polls. But, why should Beck care? He’s getting paid for it, after all.
