Posted on 01/21/2010 9:24:55 AM PST by ConservativeStatement
Im Scott Brown, Im from Wrentham, I drive a truck, and have I got a girl for you.
In a cringe-worthy, Ohmigod, DAD! moment, U.S. Sen.-elect Brown channeled Chuck Woolery during Tuesday nights acceptance speech.
I want to thank Ayla and Arianna for their help as well, Brown said. And just in case anyone whos watching throughout the country, yes, theyre both available!

That’s pretty funny, actually.
yes, Brown’s actions were FAR WORSE than receiving a BJ in the oral office, lying under oath, etc. or drowing a woman and doing all the terrible things that followed all to save his senate office.
Yes, so much more embarrassing!
I actually thought it was pretty harmless. They’re cute girls, and this was a basic “Dad joke.” I don’t know why people are flipping out over it.
And anyone who is “offended” by it probably doesn’t have a daughter (or a sense of humor.)
It was a joke. Beats the “For the first time in my adult life, I am really proud to be be an American” routine.
I don’t remember the mild joke that Laura Bush made - but it inspired my tagline (which I am reinstating).
He simply wants to get them married off so he doesn’t have to worry about them while in office. No more than any dad wants for his daughters. Get them married so they’ll settle down.
“Now Bill Clinton, Ted Kennedy, etc. Never embarrassing. /sarc.”
Oh come on now, be fair...what’s a little rape, prostitution ring, sodomy of a house page, cash in a freezer, drugs and bribery, a killing in a DC Park and the preventable death by drowning of a young intern compared to this embarrassment of Brown’s daughters?
Geesh...you conservatives are so touchy...
The left, state run media has to find something to dig on. This seems to be the only thing they can find.
Get over it. Cripes, I am sick of this crap.
I wish I were 25 years younger.
If this is the worst thing Brown does, I’ll be thrilled!
It was pretty funny. He quickly pulled back on one daughter who apparently was a runner-up on American idol and is either engaged or otherwise occupied by some reporter from ABC. The tall one (still available) is apparently a college basketball star. I suggest short guys need not apply (Probably need to be 6’4” or above.
What’s the fun of being the father of teen-aged girls if you can’t embarrass them in public?
My daughter pretends to hate when I do that, but she knows its all in fun.
Be sure to throw in Cutie Pie Johnny Edwards too
Do you think Bill CLinton thought of calling? /sarc.
Oh geez, my DH pimps our 28 yr old son to every cute girl with half a moral he knows.
It was cute.
They are a beautiful family.
Exactly. It was a cute moment. People need to lighten up an have a beer once in a while.
Noting that Andover and Yale did not have “real strong ranching programs,” she said Mr. Bush had started his ranching career by trying to milk a horse - a male horse.
What a load of leftist prissy crap.
Dads of adult daughters have been telling that joke, or similar ones, since there have been dads of unmarried adult daughters.
But that really the only thing Liberals have...feigned outrage...Everything is an unconienable insult, unless it’s about their enemies...Then it’s comedy...ythen it’s parady...then it’s a free speech right.
DemoLiberals are misery pits.
Thought it was pretty funny. It is just something fathers do to torture their kids.
Glen Beck looked like a fool (more than usual) critizing it.
No matter how hard the left tries, they cannot drag the right down to their gutter and they have to exaggerate and lie to even begin.
LOL! Sounds like something a grandmother would say.....or maybe "have I got a girl for you!"
It was funny, and Glenn Beck needs to back off...Give me a break!
FWIW, Rush Limbaugh thought Brown's comments were "cute".
Unfortunately Glenn Beck (and I'm a big Beck fan) led off his Fox TV show yesterday with a short but nasty rant about Brown's words, then said something to the effect that hopes there won't be a "dead intern" involved in Brown's term as US Senator from Massachusetts.
Geesh, Glenn... are you off the wagon, or WHAT?!
I wonder if he will apologize for those bizarre comments...
They are also big girls and I'm sure knew Dad was just having fun with them. I suspect they are balanced enough and big enough, and have a good enough relationship eith Dad to take a little Dad-ribbing. Much ado about nothing IMHO. But not surprising. I won't be surprised to see the next headline: "Flash! Brown Drinks From Milk Carton and Puts it Back!"
Definitely. My husband and I are BIG Beck fans... his nasty rant about Brown yesterday really bothered both of us. I wish Glenn would apologize for those bizarre comments.
That line sounded a bit awkward but who could blame him after the astonishing feat he had just accomplished. Might have been better if he said something like if there are any nice conservative young men out there, my daughters are single. But it is no big deal.
I was a little more disappointed he sounded so conciliatory yesterday when he spoke of his phone call with the one in the oval office. I would have liked Brown to be a bit more combative while still being respectful. But again, it is early and he is new to the national stage so we can let this go too.
People have to be LOOKING for something to criticize to be “embarrassed” by that teasing comment from a loving dad, who obviously has a great relationship with his daughters.
I just sent Lauren Beckham Falcone
a well deserved scolding.
I had perma-grin watching the acceptance speach. It wasn’t a cold, mechanical, TelePrompter rehearsed pile of BS.
Yeah, I cringed a bit when the ‘available’ comment was made, but listening to his entire victory fillibuster you really get the sense of what a great guy Mr. Brown must be. Clearly the man has a sense of humor, my favorite line was asking the President “if he would like to see the truck.” I sensed a heartfelt appreciation for the voters, for his family, the responsibility charged to him, etc.
Didn’t know much about Brown, I’m in NYS, but hope we have others like him ready to defeat Schumer and Gillibrand.
Has anyone offered any goats for them yet?
Poor Chelsea, her dad should have accepted
Geez, enough already.
There was absolutely nothing wrong with that. It was a very happy and proud father teasing and playing around with his beautiful daughters. Like a normal family that loves each other, they can play around and tease each other. What I saw on that stage was a close and loving family. ( I also wished I was 30 years younger and a lot better looking!)
As a Father, I can tell you it is our JOB to embarrass our children from time to time, now granted its not usually on national TV, but still it is not only our right, but our DUTY to do so.
Don’t think I would have done what Mr. Brown did to embarrass my own daughter, unless of course I had to take her down a peg or two.
I actually thought it was pretty harmless. Theyre cute girls, and this was a basic Dad joke. I dont know why people are flipping out over it.
Glenn Beck is going nuts over it ...
I want his every move watched in Washington. I dont trust this guy This one could end with a dead intern. Im just saying, it could end with a dead intern.
Needless to say, Glenn Beck has gone off on the deep end and is crazy... :-)
But, at least Scott Brown and his family do know how to live like normal people and not slink around like something is wrong...
And one of his daughters was on American Idol... :-)
Former American Idol Ayla Brown arrives to the American Idol Season 5 Finale
on May 24, 2006 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood, California.
And furthermore Brown also announced to the nation that his daughters were available... LOL... (and it was a funny moment...)
"Just in case anyone who's watching throughout the country, yes they're both available,"
Brown said of daughters Ayla, 21, and Arianna, 19.
"And just in case anyone who's watching throughout the country they're both available. No, no. No. Only kidding, only kidding. Only kidding, only kidding. Arianna... Arianna's, definitely not available. But Ayla is. This is Arianna. This is Ayla. I can see I'm going to get in trouble when I get home."
Senator Scott Browns daughters Ayla and Arianna Brown,
and at least one is available, as the Senator has stated.
And both of his daughters have been around and are "world-aware" too, from what I can see...
Take a look at Ayla Brown's background just to see what she's been involved with. She's no dumb bunny here... :-)
There's not as much about Arianna Brown, but I did find something here... [the language is a bit stilted in the article, but looks like it's a foreign source]

Arianna Brown is the younger of the two daughters Scott Brown has fathered in his wedlock with his spouse Gail Huff. Arianna Brown is a passionate girl in to her last teenage year. The charming faced nineteen years old Arianna Brown is preoccupied with the course of her first year studies at the renowned Syracuse University. The elder of the two daughters, twenty one years old Ayla Brown, is busy with final year of studies at Boston College.
Despite their academic fixates both Ayla and Arianna Brown were active members in their fathers campaign for the Senate seat during the Mass Elections. The two fair ladies were also very aggressive in countering any propaganda initiated by the opposing Martha Coakley and defended their father loud and clear when it came to sensitive issues such as abortion. Be wary of the fact that the late Senator, Edward Kennedy, was all for abortion rights and acts. Thus it was a hint his successors would need to take lead from.
Arianna Brown said that her father, Scott Brown, was not only good at handling the responsibilities of a dad but also that of a bread winner and hubby. She specifically stated that the seasoned politician was always concerned and updated with issues pertaining to the 3 women in his life and, as a consequence, would not be wary of his duties towards the other female citizens of the United States of America.
Scott Brown must surely be a proud father to have daughters like Arianna Brown and her elder sister.
And... American Idol Finalist -- Ayla Brown (Senator-elect Scott Brown's daughter)
Ayla Brown - Reflection
[YouTube video of her performance]
Naturally, some harridan with two last names wouldn’t have any idea about “Dad humor” ... if he had chosen to abort them, or was getting blow jobs in the oval office from girls their age, she would be fine with it though.
It would have been funnier if he had mentioned that there’s a 40-page application form just to get a review for adequacy to speak to his lovely darlings... /father of 2 girls
Ayla Brown was an American Idol contestant in season 5 and she reached the semifinals.
She cited her American Idol as her parents. She aspired to be a professional basketball player,
and currently plays in the NCAA. She is also a recording artist.
It showed he had the same concerns as any typical father. And the daughters' reaction was typical. Actually, it was enjoyable and refreshing to watch! : )
“Needless to say, Glenn Beck has gone off on the deep end and is crazy... :-) “
that ‘libertarian’ should stick to outing Obama’s czars
Whats the fun of being the father of teen-aged girls if you cant embarrass them in public?
My daughter pretends to hate when I do that, but she knows its all in fun.
LOL. How often have you done it on national TV. Ups the stakes (and potential stalkers) just a bit, as the one daughter said she had 1100 inquiries on her facebook page overnight.
Innocent intentions, clearly. And will likely not bring down the republic.
