RUSH: Sally Quinn, well noted doyenne of society in Washington and Georgetown and noted religion writer for the Washington Post, was on the O’Reilly Factor last night, and O’Reilly said, ‘Karl Rove doesn’t believe that President Obama will be hurt that much. I do, if Brown wins. What do you think, Ms. Quinn?’
QUINN: I don’t think he will be that hurt, but I think that there are a number of factors here. It’s not as black and white as it may seem. First of all, Scott Brown is a hunk, and I think that the fact that he posed seminude in a magazine gave him a huge advantage.
RUSH: Whoa ho-ho-ho-ho! There you have it, the religion writer at the Washington Post saying that Scott Brown is winning because of The Arousal Gap. Now, he posed seminude for Cosmo in 1982. I mean, if they were going to try to make that an issue in the campaign, they would have tried. I’m sure they did. I’m sure they polled it. But that’s 28 years ago that he posed nude, seminude in Cosmo. So The Arousal Gap.
