You aren't truly part of the national media spotlight until Saturday Night Live has fun at your expense -- a fact Massachusetts Sen.-elect Scott Brown (R) learned this weekend.
The show enlisted the help of host Jon Hamm (of Mad Men fame) to portray Brown, who constantly interrupts Democrats' leadership meeting on healthcare.
Every time he enters the room, the lawmakers there begin to fantasize about Brown -- shirtless, gyrating and, well, you'll see:
“Are we going to focus on running this country or are we going to waste our time thinking about Scott Brown?” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) finally asks. “We’re going to think about Scott Brown!” the members reply.
In any case, The Corner caught up with Brown later to find out what he thought of the sketch. From their blog:
Brown smiled as he watched it. “Thank goodness I like a good laugh,” he tells National Review Online. “That was pretty funny. I wish I could host SNL some day. I’ve been watching it since I was young. Jon Hamm is great.” But what about Hamm’s Boston accent? “He did a great job,” says Brown. “He doesn’t really sound like me, but it was very funny.”
