    Rarely watch tv but the other day saw a sickly sweet awe shucks Senator Centerfold is such a wholesome family guy and manly husband to successful television newscaster ad....it ended with some still photo pictures of him and his wife, with the last image being one of her sitting on the couch leaning back and looking up at him who was standing behind it and over her kissing her...I gagged because he is such a fake and phoney and the fact they think this crap is what the election should be all about...image not substance...apparently trying to appealing to emotional (young female voters no doubt)...and never once in that ad was it mentioned that he is the RepubliCON candiate .(for Wall Street).

    Scott Brown is the Republicon Senator up for reelection in MA...yet he is afraid of that republicon label. Typical  style over substance hypocritical wannabe republicon hack..

      I rarely watch local channels (RI is part of most MA stations' coverage area and vice versa) but when I do I almost always encounter this same ad which lets us know that he let his wife have a career which makes him a special kind of guy.
      Maybe he should address the fact that thanks to his party's contributions it's no longer an option for one spouse not to work.

        Especially on the policies they endorse.

        But another way to look at it is even more patronizing and condescending. It is, Scott is so special, because he let his wife have her successful career as a television reporter/anchor.  How belittling that is to women everywhere....as if women need permission from their spouses to keep their careers...but in the authortiarian republicon world, the attitude of the little wife needing/seeking permission from the husband is the predominant point of view.
