President Obama poked fun at Republican Senator Scott Brown, referring to his long-ago centerfold in Cosmopolitan magazine, at the White House Correspondents Association dinner on Saturday night.
"Speaking of tween heartthrobs, Scott Brown is here. .. I admire Scott, a rare politician in Washington with nothing to hide," said Obama.
Obama, who delivered his lines with perfect aplomb, moved on quickly to tease his own adviser, the balding, middle-aged David Axelrod.
"Now you should be aware that Scott Brown is not the only one with a salacious photo spread floating around. Recently, David Axelrod was offered a centerfold opportunity of his own. Now I did not know that Krispy Kreme had a catalog, but it's true," he said, drawing widespread laughter.
