Responding to minor celebrity Kathy Griffin calling his daughters “prostitutes,” Massachusetts senator Scott Brown tells the Boston Herald, “People can call me any name they want, but families are off limits. I love my daughters, Ayla and Arianna, very much, and any parent would be proud to have them as children. Kathy Griffin and Bravo ought to be ashamed of themselves.” The incident gets the Herald wondering why “the offspring of GOP pols get a much rougher ride in the oh-so-liberal media than their Demmie counterparts.”
Ever heard anyone publicly — even in jest — call former first daughter Chelsea Clinton a hooker?
Yeah, we have. It was all over the news. SNL also called her ugly when she was 13 years old. John McCain called her ugly five years later. Rush Limbaugh called her the “White House dog.” Not long ago, Limbaugh and Glenn Beck both mocked 11-year-old Malia Obama. But yeah, it’s just Republican kids.
