Small government crusader Grover Norquist thinks that Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA) has the assets necessary to win re-election.
"The Republicans are going to take the senate in 2012," Norquist told ABC's Christiane Amanpour Sunday. "If you look at the 23 Democrat seats up -- half of them in reddish states -- and ten Republican Senate seats up -- all in reasonably Republican states, with the possible exception of Massachusetts, and [Scott Brown has] got ten million dollars in the bank and looks great in a bathing suit."
It wasn't clear if Norquist had personally seen the senator in a bathing suit or if he was fondly remembering Brown's 1982 nude centerfold in Cosmo.
